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 […]

Bell Peppers and Eggs

Tweet My mother was not a huge fan of fish, so our meals during Lent consisted of vegetables, beans and legumes and of course pasta. The meal that I associate most with this season is Bell Peppers and Eggs. It was never my favorite, in fact I don’t think I cared for it much at […]

Eggs Nola (New Orleans La.)
