Spinach Frittata

I don't understand the weather in Chicago.  Two weeks ago the weather was in the 80s and I was prancing around in sundresses and flip flops.   Well, there was no actual prancing, but you catch my drift.

I drank iced coffee.  The air conditioner and I were best buds.  I even went to the beach and watched people do drunk yoga while getting an awkward tank-top tan.  Then last week temps were back in the 40s and it was freaking cold.  This week, we're back to the 60s.  

I have no explanation for this, other than the world is ending thanks to excessive driving and hairspray use.  Or, you know, global warming and all that.

If this does mean the world is ending, I feel it is my duty as a food blogger to provide you with one last frittata recipe.  Because when an apocalypse is on the horizon, it's clearly important to be well-fed.  

Spinach Frittata


6 eggs
2 tbsp milk 
1/4 cup, plus 2 tbsp parmesan, grated
1 cup spinach (or a handful)


In a bowl, mix together the egg, cheese, and milk.  Add the spinach.  Pour into an oven-safe skillet on medium heat and cook until the top is barely runny, 10-12 minutes.  Place in the broiler and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the top browns.

Serve with vegetables or a salad.  


  1. It seems the weather has been wacky all over the US this winter! I worry about global warming too - all this sunshine seems a little too good to be true!

      Definitely! It's crazy!

  2. I keep meaning to make more Frittata and I keep forgetting. This one looks delicious!

    As for the weather, it's been so crazy all over the place - it doesn't make any sense!
