Baked Zucchini Frittata, Frittata forno

Frittata di Zucchine al Forno – Baked Zucchini Frittata

I have been pretty much MIA all summer long.  Time just flies so fast.  But while there is still a little of summer left, there is just enough time to make this easy zucchini frittata.

Recipe – Pasta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

After one runs (or jogs) a marathon, there is ALWAYS a pasta party!

Recipe – Focaccia

Super yummy and super easy.   You can do no wrong with this foccaccia – it comes out every time.  As you will note in the directions, it is a very sticky dough.  This is the only way it… Read More
