Spinach-Asparagus Quiche

6-8 servings Tip: If you're not into making pie crust, keep things simple and purchase one. Another option is to make the quiche without crust. It would be equally delicious.

Italian Stuffed Zucchini Cups

6-8 appetizer servings Tip: Holidays many times call for appetizers, whether at home or taken to a friend's or colleague's party.
