Saffron, Chive & Ricotta Frittata
As we depart today on a road trip up north to my hometown, Mariposa, CA, I embrace the energy of my family that certainly think I’m part alien for all the green smoothies and raw food I consume. And I’m reminded that after years of trying, not even I will convince them to shift their everyday egg breakfast for a rotation of greens here-and-there. So when you can’t beat them, you join them. That means that I’ll be preparing this fluffy and incredibly delectable/easy frittata for our Saturday post Halloween brunch.
At least it will be some nourishment for my eight-year-old brother, after his night of overdosing on sugar, that he won’t wave his hand in the air and say, “um, it’s OK sis. I’ll wait until lunch.”
It’s a bulletproof crowd pleaser.
