F is for Feta & Tomato Frittata

Many of the recipes I make myself come from the need to make a quick lunch. My challenge? To include whatever ingredient I’m currently doing for Apples to Ziti.

A frittata is super simple to make as long as you have an oven-safe skillet.

Here is the RECIPE Feta & Tomato Frittata Recipe and SHOPPING LIST Feta & Tomato Frittata Shopping List!

You’re going to love how simple and cheap this is to make!

E is for Egg Burrito (Healthy Style)

Looking for something filling, delicious, and good for you? Look no further!

I discovered this recipe during my second pregnancy and have been making it ever since. If I’m making the recipe for just me (which is often the case), I will make a recipe for four and just add the eggs when ever I’m in the mood for eggs throughout the week. Making it for more than one person is simple too, AND, of course, it’s budget-friendly!

The hot sauce is optional but I like a little kick now and again with my eggs 🙂

A is for Apple Tarts!

Puff Pastry Apple Tarts

This post is only for “Apple Tarts” but I did do another “A is for Apple” dessert: Apple Tatin! You can find that HERE!

I really LOVE these dessert recipes I found because they are fancy, decadent and delicious! However, they are not super complicated to make, and they don’t require a bunch of ingredients that I will use one time and then never use again.

They both come from Ina Garten and they are her take on French dessert classics.
