One of my spring resolutions was to learn how to make a pie crust.  This one is a good, no-fail, starter version with only 4 ingredients and no fancy tools.

Quiche is great for a quick dinner or a delicious hot breakfast.  It works well with whatever cheeses, meats and vegetables you have on hand – what are your favorites?  This one is like a ham and cheese sandwich with prosciutto and mozzarella.

What to buy (serves 6-8):
