Cinq à sept ("five to seven") (pronounced "sank-ah-set") is a Quebec French term for a time in the afternoon intended to be spent with friends or colleagues, enjoying light pre-theatre meals, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres or to escape rush hour traffic. A "cinq à sept" is held before the formal dinner hours, before the participants eat in restaurants and is not strictly between five and seven o'clock.
In France, cinq à sept is a synecdoche for a visit to one's mistress, derived from the time of day Frenchmen would make such a visit.
I give credit to JENNLOVE for inspiring this recipe with her Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche recipe. I love to wander through the farmer's market, pick out the seasonal fresh vegetables, and figure out later what to do with them. This is how this dish came to be. Because of the skim milk and reduced amount of eggs, it is more similar in texture to a frittata than a true French quiche, which is richer and creamier. But it is still very good and makes a good dish for dinner or a nice Sunday brunch. My son (Mr. I-Hate-Quiche) loved this and gobbled down two slices.Submitted by COPPERHEAD71
This soup is one that all seafood lovers will enjoy. It's smooth, rich flavor warms you to the core & tantalizes your tastebuds. The broth itself soothes & gives you that warm home feeling of comfort. It's one of our favorites. Hope you all enjoy as much!

a soup or stew containing several kinds of fish and often shellfish, usually combined with olive oil, tomatoes, and saffron.
My husband has always had a sweet tooth and being on the SCD diet (he has UC), his options are often limited.
This is a delicious and versatile SCD friendly crepe. I added raspberries and honey to it to make it a decadent dessert!
You could also use it with savoury... ham and brie is my favourite.
Quiche is infinitely adjustable to whatever you have on hand, even leftovers. Quantities are also pretty much governed by amounts available. Below is a version that can be made either with soy milk and soy cheese or non fat milk and low fat gouda. Add meats if you want.
I am indebted to SANDYLUVSSPARK for the idea of using Heart Healthy Bisquick in the mix instead of a carb and fat heavy crust, but I added Oat Bran to it as well.
Comparison soy vs dairy:
soy version has 274.4 calories, 21.1 g carbs, 14.7 g fat, 246.5 mg chol, and 15.5 g protein
dairy version has 319.8 calories, 20.2 g carbs, 14.4 g fat, 274.0 mg chol, and 24.9 g protein
If you're looking for a traditional beef stew recipe, this is it! This recipe is from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and in French is called "Boeuf A La Catalane". I only altered it to use less bacon, less oil, and canned tomatoes. All the original french techniques are used to make this a phenomenal melt-in-your-mouth delicacy, fit for a king!! The sauce is actually velvety, and so rich!! Just add a steamed green veggie or salad to make a complete meal!!Submitted by TAMRACLOVEC
