Frittata with Mushroom, Spinach and Gruyere

Print PDF Frittata with Mushroom, Spinach and Gruyere – The Italian word frittata comes from the word fritto and means “to fry” (there’s some grammar stuff in there about past participles and whatever, but this is a cooking lesson, not a lesson in Italian, you wouldn’t want to take one from me anyway ;D). In Italy. It was originally a general word that was used to describe cooking any kind of egg in a skillet. Outside of Italy, it was used interchangeably with omelette. It is only in the last fifty or so years that it has become the word for a specific egg dish...

Soft Boiled Eggs with Cumin and Brown Butter Sauce – Recipe

Print PDF Soft boiled eggs with cumin and brown butter sauce (recipe follows) – I’m not really sure if I had ever actually eaten soft boiled eggs until I met my husband Xavier. When we first got together, he would tell me about one of his favorite breakfasts (soft boiled eggs sprinkled with cumin and served with saltines and butter). It’s something his mother would always make and therefore, one of his comfort foods.  I always thought it sounded pretty good, but never was excited about it enough to make it. So, one morning my darling Xavier surprised me with breakfast....

French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce – Recipe

Print PDF French Toast with Homemade Strawberry Sauce (recipe follows) – French Toast is so delicious by itself, but add some homemade strawberry sauce and you have got something that’s really yummy! :D I love to make this for my family because it makes me feel like I spoil them. I’m not sure why, but they’re always super impressed when I make syrup or these types of sauces from scratch. I guess it’s because most people reach for the bottled kind. It’s really easy to make them at home though. In fact, I can make the whole family (all 7 of us)...

Pumpkin-Crumb Muffins (Whole Wheat) with Cream Cheese Filling – Recipe

Print PDF Pumpkin-Crumb Muffins-The toughest critic of my food in the house is definitely my baby. She is one and a half or I guess technically 19 months old. She is a great gage on how well a recipe turned out because she is completely honest and does not worry about sparing my feelings. If she likes the food, she eats it. If she doesn’t like the food a very dramatic display of her wiping out her mouth and scraping her tongue with her fingers ensues, she follows up by throwing the said food onto the floor and screaming as if she’s been insulted or injured. It’s much cuter...

Cranberry-Pecan Muffins (Whole Wheat) – Recipe

Print PDF Cranberry-Pecan Muffins (recipe and instructions with video tutorial follow)- Every year at Thanksgiving I make a giant batch of cranberry sauce for the family dinner. This year, while shopping at my neighborhood wholesale store (where mayo comes by the gallon), I bought my cranberries. They had a five pound bag for the same price I usually get two pounds for and I am one of those people who doesn’t pass up a good deal or a sale. Lost in the excitement of getting more than twice as much for the same price, I didn’t consider that this bag would be occupying the better...
