I was inspired last night to bake a quiche that had many flavors familiar with Mediterranean and Greek cooking.  Quiche are so incredibly versatile. Anyone can easily create their own.  The pie crust, eggs and milk are all necessary, the rest can be up to you.  Here is what my creativity blossomed into last night.  It was so good,…
