POM blueberry muffins

Remember the POM reader recipe poll?  Tonight I made POM blueberry muffins, using a recipe from the POM website, and swapping out the cranberries for blueberries.
Sadly, these muffins were only so-so.  When I was making them I thought it was a little odd they didn't have any fat in them - oil, butter, or even applesauce.  The result was a pretty dry muffin... that was completely saved by the berries!  I think these actually would be really good with the addition of a half cup of applesauce to give a little moisture.  I'm not sure the POM taste really came out that strong though.  Maybe when I make fruit soup I'll finally have a recipe that brings out the POM!

Alongside the muffins we had a spinach tomato quiche.
This, on the other hand, was delicious!  So light and fluffy!

Tomato Spinach Quiche
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2c. spinach, roughly torn or chopped
3 cloves garlic
8 eggs
1/2t. salt
1T. Italian seasonings
1/2c. cheddar cheese (optional)

Saute spinach, tomato, and garlic in olive oil over medium high heat until spinach just starts to wilt (about 4 minutes).  Meanwhile, in small bowl whisk together 8 eggs, salt, and Italian seasonings.  Pour egg mixture into greased square pan.  Spoon tomato spinach mixture evenly over the egg.  Top with cheese if desired.  Bake at 325 for 30 minutes, or until casserole is firm, cheese is brown, and knife comes out clean.

This might have been my first time making a quiche?  But I'll definitely be making it again!

What new recipes have you been trying?

Don't forget to vote in the reader recipe poll!  I'll announce the winner today around lunchtime!


  1. I am so loving reading your blog! I love the combination of running, reading, cooking, and a fun lifestyle!

    New recipes - pasta with eggplant, mushrooms, tomatoes and goat cheese (yummy!), and corn fritters with basil and sun dried tomatoes (so-so).

  2. How do you think it would turn out if you used broccoli instead of spinach?

  3. lately i've been on a sourdough kick:
    sourdough pancakes (not as good as green pancakes!)
    sourdough muffins (kind of chewy)
    sourdough bread (it's hard to mess that one up)

    and on the not so sourdough side of things:
    beef/been enchiladas with homeade tortillas and homeade enchilada sauce
    and doubles of everything to freeze...getting ready for baby.

    POM smoothie...can't wait to try that one.
