    Comment by Linds — October 18, 2017 @ 5:35 pm | Reply

    • Just went to re-watch that segment, LOL… Matt said 1/2 cup oil (recipe says 1/4 cup), Matt used 1 egg + 1 yolk (recipe says 2 eggs), and as for the brown sugar, Matt said 1 1/2 cups, who to believe???

      • Thanks I think I will take it off what you said from the show 😊

  11. Love the show ! Great receipes that are easy to cook. Just need to fix up the last quiche receipe online ( vegetables missing ) . Can’t wait to make it .

    Comment by Thelma Fulker — November 1, 2017 @ 6:33 pm | Reply

  12. Does anyone know why the spring veg quiche recipe from today’s show shows the filling recipe as the recipe for the pastry??? I really want to make this but don’t remember the quantity of the eggs, milk etc

    Comment by Linds — November 1, 2017 @ 11:05 pm | Reply

    • I think it was equal amount of cream and milk (1/2 cup each if I recalled correctly), and 2 eggs, then he decided it was too little to fill the tart case, and added maybe 2 more eggs + more cream. I’ll have to go and re-watch that segment again later today when I have some free time to confirm.

      In the meantime, have a look at this recipe from Everyday Gourmet for the filling part…

  13. After watching this program this week I have seen enough to tell me that a child could do better it is so amature and that Matt is so annoying with his arms waving about all the time and never stops talking and moving backwards and forwards,a complete waste of television air spacet

    • I find him very engaging. He explains as he goes very clearly and have made a couple of his dishes and they’ve been a great success. Guess you can’t please all the people all the time.
