I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Loaded Potato Frittata

Frittatas are one of those meals you can pull out of your back pocket when you need a quick and hearty meal any time of the day. And you can use up some bits and pieces leftover from other meals... add some roasted veggies, or chopped meat as long as the total adds up to 2 cups (substituting some of the potatoes for the add-ins).

4 eggs
2 cups cooked, diced potatoes (great use of leftovers!)
salt and pepper to taste
1 bell pepper, diced (save a slice for the top if you want to get fancy)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric 
2/3 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
2 tbsps freshly chopped parsley
1 tbsp olive oil

Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, turmeric and parsley together. Stir in the cheese. A lot of frittata recipes add cream but this one does not. (I figured if the Pioneer Woman can make a frittata without cream then so can I!)
Heat olive oil to medium heat in a 9" cast iron pan or use a non-stick skillet. Either one will work to ensure the eggs don't stick, just make sure you use an oven-safe pan. Add onion and bell pepper and cook 4-5 minutes. Add potatoes and cook 1 minute. I used some leftover boiled, skin on new potatoes here. Next distribute the veggies evenly over the bottom of the pan then pour in the eggs. Salt and pepper all over.

As it cooks lift the edges to let uncooked egg from the top run to the bottom to cook. When top is no longer runny put the pan in the oven at 400°F for 4-5 minutes.

Let stand 3-5 minutes before slicing to serve.

Serves 4 with a nice side salad.
