Fresh Spinach Frittata with Cheese


Earlier this summer my mother decided to make this dish as a light dinner. None of us were particularly hungry, but a frittata sounded great. Often I am not impressed with frittatas and find them a little boring. The cheese in this recipe definitely adds a lot of flavor and also changes the texture of the frittata. This is a little more dense than your usual frittata, but is still absolutely delirious. I love this dish both hot or at room temperature. The ingredients are simple and the end result makes a great vegetarian dinner. Pair with a green salad and you have a terrific weeknight dinner.

Caramelized Onion Tart


I was visiting my sister earlier this year and we decided to make this onion tart. Though caramelizing onions takes a while, the rest of the recipe looked easy enough. We made it simpler by using a store bough pie shell, but feel free to use the link to the original recipe for the homemade dough recipe. Once the onions are caramelized, this recipe comes together very quickly and easily. I ended up cooking this in stages and the end result was still delicious. We served this quiche with a big green salad and were absolutely stuffed. If you're a hungry group, this feeds about 3 people.

Soft Baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


I absolutely love soft baked oatmeal cookies. I was looking for a new oatmeal recipe to try when I came across this one. With a few tweaks here and there I ended up with delicious, chewy cookies. I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe. I love having these cookies with a giant glass of milk or cup of tea. This recipe made over 60 cookies, so I tend to share these with friends or coworkers when I make them.

Kale, Farro and Strawberry Salad



My friend and I went to the beach this past weekend and she surprised me with this absolutely delicious salad. I was lazy and packed simple snacks, like hummus, and salsa, while she made us a few great salads. I'm not typically a big fan of kale (in any form), but this salad was great! I finished my plate in minutes.The perk of this salad is that to ravels well since it's made with kale. It's won't get soggy and you can even keep it for the next day if you have extras.

Three Ingredient Pancakes



I love making delicious pancakes with all sorts of add ins and ingredients, but when I don't have these things on hand, this recipe is my go-to for quick and easy pancakes. You can probably make this without having to go to the grocery store. I've been making these for years but only recently realized I'd never put them on the blog. I sometimes add a little sugar or extra baking soda, but these are great even without that. Add whatever toppings on extras you enjoy. I usually slice in some bananas or sprinkle on chocolate chips.

If you don't have self-rising flour at home, don't worry about buying it. You can easily make it with this recipe.
