Dark, rainy mornings call for slow, methodical cooking. Add candles and music and I'll stay in the kitchen all day (which is precisely what I did last Monday).

Crustless quiche is a healthier, easier alternative to regular quiche. Since there is no crust to bother with, I could focus more on each individual ingredient that went into the quiche -- I toasted the almonds in olive oil, sauteed the Swiss chard in garlic and vegetable broth, and added fresh thyme to the top layer of Gruyère.
