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
"The quick coq au vin is a streamlined twist on the labor-intensive French classic. Instead of the chicken being browned in bacon fat and then braised in broth, Cognac, and wine while onions and mushrooms are cooked separately and the liquid then thickened, our skillet version takes just 45 minutes from start to finish. What's more, it captures all the savory richness of the original."
Fine dining without the health or financial guilt. I put this together to satisfy the steakhouse craving, delivering all the flavor without the excessive fat. I know everything is in grams, they are easiest to work with in the kitchen if you have a scale, and make baking far more consistent.Submitted by RAINMANJA
I adapted this recipe from Cooking Light after my daughter was diagnosed with allergies to gluten, soy and dairy. The original recipe called for 3/4 cup of egg substitute, which I never have on hand.
This recipe is great served with rice and broccoli.
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

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.
