Q is for Quiche:

If you’ve never tasted quiche with smoked Gouda, give this is a try: 

1 - 9 inch pastry case
4 ozs. smoked Gouda, grated
6 ozs. Canadian bacon cooked and crumbled
5 fluid ozs. (slightly more than ½ cup) 10% cream
3 eggs
½ teaspoon each salt and pepper 

Preheat oven to 400F.
Place pastry case on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle grated cheese and crumbled bacon in the bottom of the pastry case.
Combine eggs, cream, salt and pepper in a bowl and beat well to blend.
Pour egg mixture over cheese and bacon.
Place in the center of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling is firm and the top of the quiche golden brown. 

If you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, maybe you should pay a visit to L’Epicerie Gourmet de Pierre in -


It's Complicated
by Christiane France
There's also a sequel - LOOKING FOR ANSWERS; and


Pete Letouche and Mitch Ravello lusted over one another in high school, but that’s as far as it went until prom night when a couple of drinks gave them the courage to put their thoughts into action and share their first sexual experience.

With Pete’s father chief of police and Mitch’s reputed to be the local crime boss, Pete knew there could never be anything more between them than that one night.

Shortly thereafter, Pete left town. First to train as a master chef and then work at different hotels all over the country. But during that time he never quite forget Mitch and he never lost sight of his childhood dream to one day own a gourmet food shop like his grandmother’s family once had.

Ten years have passed. Pete is back and his shop is both a reality and a success. He’s on top of the world until Mitch walks into the shop and announces he’s taken over the note Pete signed for the down-payment on the building where the shop is located.

Pete knows Mitch’s father suffered a heart attack and is now in a vegetative state with no hope of recovery. What he doesn’t know is who took over Sal Ravello’s business of loan sharking and shaking down local business? His son is his obvious successor, but Mitch says not. Pete has no way of knowing if Mitch is telling the truth and to make matters worse the feelings they once had for one another are still alive and well. Pete figures the feelings amount to nothing more than warmed over old memories. But when Mitch invites him to dinner at his place, Pete decides to go. A private, face to face meeting could be the perfect opportunity to find out about the present and put the past to rest.
