Who Sisters-in-law Megan Martin, author of Fig & Fauna, farmer, and owner of Onblonde Pet Spa & Rose Martin, photographer and weaver

Where Jupiter, Florida

Time 11:30 am

What's a typical lunch for you? We usually assemble salads and omelets with ingredients from our farm or leftovers from previous dinners {which are sometimes the best!}. Today, we have made Kale and Feta Crustless Quiche with Borage Tea.

What's your dream/ideal lunch? Fish tacos or Reuben's at the beach. We love to picnic seaside, but we just don't celebrate lunch there as often as we would like to!

Dessert with lunch?  Never. But a honey sweetened tea or cafè con leche is often a must.

Thanks Megan and Rose!

  1. Kale and Feta quiche sounds so good for summertime! I’m going to make this over the weekend. Love your beautiful photos also!!!

  2. What a feast for the eyes, heart, and belly. Beautiful sis-n-laws and fantastic websites and blogs too. The photography, ideas, and writing are all fabulous. So glad to see them showcased here!

  3. Healthy food that is captivating to the eye and stomach, descriptive writing that reads like a beautiful story, and gorgeous photos to go with it…those ladies from Fig & Fauna have such a passion for the good things in life, and it shows in what they do. Thank you for sharing them here.

  4. This looks wonderful…I can’t wait to try it. The photo is so beautiful too…you two make a super great team!

  5. Those Fig & Fauna girls are unstoppable! Love their site and how great to see them featured here on your own delightful page! <3

  6. It’s eleven o’clock at night but the photos of fresh country eggs, the beautiful borage flower floating in its tea, the crunchy onions and crisp salad makes me want to head for the fridge! I love the simplicity of the ingredients and the beauty of the results. I could almost hear the roosters crowing and feel a cool breeze carrying the smell of that cheddar across the kitchen! This will be my lunch dream for tomorrow!

  7. I will definitely be making this quiche! We have our own supply of fresh banty eggs and new egg dishes are always welcome! I have the pleasure of knowing Megan and Rose’s mother and father in law, and know how much they love visiting them every month. Now that I know their talents, I might have to visit them too!

  8. The quiche looks to die for! I will be saving the recipe in my favorite recipes file, to be sure. Rose’s photographs over on the Fig & Fauna website are so creative, refreshing and elegant. They are like taking in a breath of fresh air! I wish them both continued success!

  9. This has me wishing it was lunch time right now! I adore Fig & Fauna, so much beauty and inspiration whenever I visit their space-glad to see them featured here!

  10. If a picture is worth a thousand words, the photo of the quiche and its table setting makes what is simple farm fare look like a lunch at a five star restaurant! Am in Florida near Jupiter for a small vacation and intend to go check out the Fig and Fauna!

  11. The quiche looks Oh SO Good! This is a recipe we will add to “must make” and the Café con Leche a MUST… It is very interesting how Rose & Megan of Fig & Fauna make the Farm life and food feel healthy and extravagant. Thank you for a refreshing and vibrant view of life and scrumptious food.

  12. A crustless quiche is exactly what I love. The picture is so enviting that I must try this recipe for dinner tonight. I only regret that I don’t have my own hens that will provide the beautiful eggs. I’m a fan of Fig and Fauna and wait restlessly for each addition.

  13. How enticing! Fresh laid eggs- blue and brown no less- and homegrown salad fixings -what could be healthier! Fig and Fauna, Megan and Rose are a winning combination.

  14. This looks amazing and my Kale is coming up! Our New Chickens should be laying by fall. This quiche is in my future. May have to settle for the grocery store ingredients first. The pictures make my mouth water. Thank you for sharing this simple, elegant dish! I think I need to plant some Borage in my garden as well! This is a winner, winner combo!

  15. Love this. So simple and lovely. Everything Fig & Fauna does is inspiring. And the writing and photography combines so well together you could almost smell what they’re posting about. Great feature post!

  16. Looks delicious! I will definitely give this recipe a try. The Quinoa Patties on the Fig and Fauna site today look delicious as well!

  17. Looks so good! From my previous experience of other wonderful recipes from Rose & Megan, this is a must try! 🙂

  18. Wow, Fig and Fauna….Can’t wait to try this recipe. I made the Fig and Fauna Strawberry Galette…oh, so good!

  19. So awesome! They encapsulate everything I love about Jupiter! I lived there for several years, and by far it is the best beach in South Florida! Picnics on the beach there, with baskets of yummy food, good friends, and the freedom to bring your dogs, and really do as you please… it is wonderful. Gorgeous photo, too!
