Tomato Basil Frittata

Tomato Basil Frittata FI

Did you know that almost every time I make this Tomato Basil Frittata (which is pretty often), Karl goes around saying “frIIiiTTtaTTa” in his best Italian accent (which is pretty bad).

5-Minute Spinach & Feta Eggs

5 Minute Spinach Feta Eggs FI

Spinach and Feta Eggs are my new obsession. We eat a lot of eggs on the homestead. Raising our own laying hens is so rewarding- they’re such characters, and the eggs that they produce are worlds above anything store-bought.

(grain-free, gluten-free, paleo, easily dairy-free) Do you have at least six mondo-zucchini sitting on your counter at all times during the summer?
