20200608_075533So I may be a little late to this party, but I guess the old saying “better late than never” still holds true.  At least it has for me.

BFT (Bacon-Feta-Tomato) Frittata

20200502_205315Frittatas are kind of like the casseroles of the egg dish world.  They are a great way to throw a bunch of odds and ends together and call it a meal.

Dill & Leek Scrambled Eggs

20190417_112417There’s a scene in one of the Peter Rabbit stories where a sneaky fox tricks a silly duck to bring him a variety of herbs.  What the duck doesn’t realize is that he intends to cook her eggs with those herbs!

Spinach & Feta Frittata

20190217_122502One of the better known Greek dishes is spanakopita, a spinach and feta cheese filled pastry.  This isn’t that dish, but it does have all the flavor– minus the pastry part.  And it’s easy to make.  We’re on to something here.

Tomato-Pesto Poached Eggs

20180908_133220jikmlI had never heard of shakshuka before, and then in the span of a week I had three different sources bring this wondrous dish to my attention.  The universe was speaking and I decided to listen.

Tomato & Pesto Egg Cups

Spinach & Feta Omelets

20180115_065957I will never make it as a short order cook.  I’m not the fastest person in the kitchen, and no where near the neatest (I can hear the Old Man agreeing with the last statement just a little too much).  However, I have learned some tricks along the way to help streamline certain meals so that I can enjoy them the way I want, and I don’t have to get out of my pajamas to go to a restaurant, either.

“Poached” Eggs

20171106_20kl;wesxdSo here’s an idea: take an already bland-ish food and cook it by submersing it in plain hot water.  Did I miss something here?  I love eggs, but really, they need some help in the seasoning department.

Feta & Dried Tomato Frittata

20171021_125218[1]Frittatas are a wonderfully easy way to whip up an any-time-of-the-day meal.  They can be very nutritiously balanced, all in one pan, and are one of those meals that can help you clean up leftovers in the refrigerator.  Technically this is an Italian dish, but I use feta cheese in mine, and I was taught how to make them by a Greek woman, so it’s close enough!
