They all look good. Chunks of baked sweet potato instead of broccli (allergic), and adding a bunch of chopped greens. Thank you. I know to keep paper handy to write down recipes when I read you blog.
Stay safe

Victor S E Moubarak said...

All three recipes look delicious. I prefer the frittata. Thanx Jan.

God bless always.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I always use 1/2 and 1/2 (light cream) in my omelets, but never considered using whipping cream. Great idea when I have left over whipping cream at Thanksgiving later this month. I've copied all recipes today. I plan to use them all.
