This month has been about easy recipes to feed the family as you head back to school, or back to online learning, or back to still working at home, or maybe even going back to work. Whatever it may be, quick, easy, or make ahead is key as most of us have been stuck at home a lot, cooking way more than usual. And while you may roll your eyes at homemade pizza as easy; using make ahead flatbread dough, a convenient sheet pan shape for everyone to have their own personal portion, and store-bought toppings means that pizza night can indeed be relatively easy.
What is a Frittata Quiche? Basically a frittata with flour and baking powder in it. Why? This makes it more filling and slices into tidy little portable wedges. And this month is all about easy recipes to feed the family, or yourself. With whole wheat flour, veggies and protein all in one dish, this frittata quiche ticks all the boxes when it comes to meal time. If you have leftovers that need to be used up, the meat, cheese and vegetables can easily be swapped out for what you have on hand. And yes, you can use gluten free flour if you want to.
Anyone doing some isolation baking right now? Or anyone trying to, but the grocery store shelves are rather bare? With the current situation in mind, we’ve created a muffin recipe that is more like a format, where you can swap things in and out. If you have kids, this substitution game can be a pretty fun scavenger hunt of what you have on hand. Also, pull out all the festive cupcake/muffin paper liners. The small things help right now as we all adjust to a very different normal. Hope this brings a little sanity and happiness to your life. Baking is pretty good therapy.
