Spinach Feta Oven Frittata

---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Spinach Feta Oven Frittata --- This recipe for spinach feta oven frittata came about from my love affair with my cast iron skillet. This is a relatively new love affair, because I haven't had my cast iron skillet for all that long, so I am in the midst of doing all kinds of experimentation on the different things that come out deliciously in it, which so far is pretty much everything. From casseroles to cobblers, and from bacon to all kinds of eggs, this skillet is my new favorite kitchen buddy, and as your grandma could probably tell you, the more you use it, the more seasoned it gets, and the better it cooks ....more

---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Vinegar Salt Baby Potatoes --- If you love salt and vinegar potato chips as much as I do, which is a ridiculous amount of love, you are going to be head over heels for this recipe for vinegar salt baby potatoes. It basically takes those three things we adore - potatoes, vinegar and sea salt - and cooks them up into a side dish that we can proudly eat alongside whatever you are having for dinner. Personally, I recommend a simple, classic grilled steak (and click here for my beloved method for how to grill a perfect steak every time), but whatever is on your grill is going to make friends just fine with these sassy little potatoes ....more
