Tasty Thursday // Goat Cheese Quiche | Sweet Potato Crust

One thing that I gladly take away from our Peru trip is that I've started cooking so much more and from scratch. It is so easy and so much better for us. Really how hard is it to boil some chick peas and make your own hummus. It's not hard at all. I can also proudly say that we have not bought canned anything in over eight months!!! Anyway. Over the past year and a half, I've made some really tasty and I have to admit intimidating recipes. Most turned out amazing and some less so, but you cook and you learn, right?!=] This is one of the best ones, Goat Cheese Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust. Delicious and HEALTHY!!!
