Tomato and Cheese Frittata

Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. Nothing says summer like tomatoes. Then there are eggs, tomatoes and cheese – a familiar trinity. Make that home-grown heirloom tomatoes with fresh eggs from Farmer Kim and it becomes a holy trinity. Ok, enough goofy phrases, what did I make? It is called a frittata, but with the bread in this mixture, this frittata…

Quinoa and Rice Bowl with Kale, Kimchi and Egg

The kale is going absolutely nuts in my garden! It is big, beautiful, and plentiful! The Russian kale is particularly healthy. I had thought the groundhog had killed most of the plants, so I planted more.  Guess what, they are all producing now! We discovered rice bowls last year, and I especially like Korean rice…

Spinach & Potato Frittata

I am finally harvesting some spinach from the garden!! Spring must actually be here (even if the sun hasn’t made an appearance yet). It has been a frustrating spring.  First, the groundhog came back and ate all the greens I planted (except spinach, he doesn’t like spinach). Then I put up a solar powered electric…

Butternut Squash Quiche

I won’t mince words, this is probably the tastiest quiche I have ever made. We learned the other day that roasted vegetables worked will in a strata, so I figured that butternut squash and some other roasted vegetables would work just as well in a quiche. I decided to keep with an orange theme and…

Parsnip Frittata

Frittatas are a great way to use the bits and pieces of vegetables left over from making other dishes.  I had parsnips sitting in my fridge, perfect to pair with Farmer Kim’s eggs in Mario Batali’s frittata recipe for la light, healthy dinner. These parsnips did not come from my garden.  My parsnips did not…

Lentils With Cucumbers, Chard, And Poached Egg

I wasn’t feeling well today; I spent much of it asleep. My stomach had been unsettled for a few days, but today food was not appealing to me and I was dizzy.  So my plans for our dinner needed to change. I decided eggs would be good for me, and for some reason I was…

Stir-Fry Soba Noodles with Green Beans, Tomatoes & Eggs

Summer is progressing in the garden, tomatoes are coming in strong and so are the purple long beans. My favorite “magic” beans, they turn from deep purple to green when they are cooked! I have been growing them for over 5 years now and they still never cease to amuse me. I grow mostly heirloom,…

Asparagus, Tomato & Fontina Frittata

I am happy to say that it is still asparagus season in Delaware.  So when I was at the farm market today, I bought about 3 lbs!  Get ready for a few asparagus posts – if they turn out well, that is. I love asparagus frittatas. This on is a slight riff on Giada De…

Wheat Berry and Broccolini Salad with Eggs

Farmer Kim eggs are back! Receiving the “do you want eggs” text made my day! To celebrate, a dinner that is topped with beautiful fried fresh eggs! I have come to really like wheat berries, their taste, their bite. They are a nice alternative to rice or pasta. The other alternative vegetable we used tonight…
