Potato & Onion Frittata

Tweet Growing up, I remember my mother making a frittata of potatoes and onions. It was never served for breakfast or a fancy brunch, rather it was our evening meal. This dish along with bell peppers and eggs (another “meatless” meal), appeared often during Lent. A frittata is always a good answer anytime the question […]

Asparagus Tart

Tweet Asparagus is my favorite spring vegetable! When tossed with ravioli it becomes a lovely light lunch and combined with lemony chickpeas creates a perfect picnic salad. If I’m in the mood for a small bite, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus enjoyed with a refreshing glass of  Prosecco or limonata is a splendid way to take pause and […]

Eggs in Purgatory

Tweet Because the eggs are cooked in a hot and spicy tomato sauce, this Italian dish is known as Uova in Purgatorio. The intensity level can range from mildly spicy to … hot as hell. My recipe is full of flavor with (to suit my family’s taste) just the right amount of heat. Rather than […]

Caramelized Leek Fritatta

Tweet Frittata is the Italian word for omelette. I often use the words frittata and omelette interchangeably but, technically they are different. A frittata is flat with the ingredients mixed into the eggs, rather than used for a filling, as in an omelette. The classic French omelette, with its light, fluffy texture, is best consumed immediately […]

Roasted Potato & Fennel Frittata

Tweet Last night’s dinner was a simple rosemary-roasted chicken with vegetables. Having spent much of the morning gardening, this first meal of the day needed to be quick and easy. Since the potatoes and fennel were already cooked, I only needed to slice them to make our vegetable frittate. This healthy, deliciously filling meal is […]

Carbonara for One

Tweet Pasta alla Carbonara is a simple dish consisting basically of pasta, bacon, cheese and raw eggs. Some recipes (not the original) add cream. The original Roman version is quite rich and adding the eggs to achieve a creamy sauce with out them curdling is rather tricky. I came up with an easy, full proof […]

Sweet Potato & Andouille Hash

Tweet Hash became notably popular during and after World War II, due to the rationing of fresh meat and for many, it came in a can (Hormel corned beef hash). When I was growing up, we never wasted food and leftovers on one night could easily find their way into breakfast the next morning. Hash […]
