OK, so while on this quarantine, things have been so hectic it’s crazy.

Initially, I had plans of creating a ton of content, including videos, delving further into SEO, engage like crazy on social media, etc. BUT, in recent turns of events with my husband’s health not being the best in the past weeks, none of that has taken place.

Thankfully, I’ve managed to ever so often re-share recipes throughout our site as a way to keep serving you all on social media, including releasing newer content more scarcely, BUT I miss creating recipes.

Now, I’m in the gist of getting some order in our household, finally, and I hope to create more content very soon, so that you have recipes that you love during this difficult time for many of us.

Honestly, baking/cooking is the one thing that many are using to cope with everything as well as pass time, so I’m on a mission to keep serving you guys!

On a lighter note, this Frittata recipe was one of my latest recipes that I got a chance to make last month and boy was it delish!

If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook or have joined our Email List, then you’ve probably already seen the recipe video for this.

However, you are now able to follow the recipe step by step since it’s now on our site.

I’ve been so excited to share this recipe because of the fact that it’s SO EASY TO MAKE, SUPER QUICK, JAM-PACKED WITH FLAVOR, and CAN BE ENJOYED FOR BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, OR DINNER.

Honestly, I’m now getting into the Frittata and Quiche-craze and I must admit that I see why they are so popular and often made.

Our Onion, Spinach, Tomato, + Parmesan Quiche is so good and is the epitome of a savory tart that comes warm, tender, and wrapped in a beautifully crisp crust infused with rosemary + whole wheat flavor. 

So, What is a Frittata Anyway?

Basically, it’s a crustless quiche. Haha.

In all seriousness, Frittatas are simply dish that include egg, ‘filling ingredients’ (such as greens, meat, bacon, etc.), and your oven.

It’s literally one big skillet of velvety goodness!

For a bit of outside context, Frittatas are considered French Omelettes, and most people usually find them as a thrifty way to utilize leftover ingredients.

As I’ve mentioned previously, Frittatas are not only the best for breakfast, but can be thoroughly enjoyed for lunch/dinner also.

  1. I’ve long wanted to make a frittata but most of the recipes seem to call for ham. So this one is especially welcome. A beautiful way to start the day or as a brunch.

    • Yes, I hardly eat ham, so this was perfect for us too! I do hope that you get a chance to try it!:-)
