By now you know my love for ...
everything locally grown and farm fresh! 
Frittatas too!
Frittatas are the easiest way for me to make all of my favorites from
 It is also my favorite way to start my day off completely and blissfully satisfied!
Actually a frittata is the perfect meal anytime of the day or night!
I love making them because they are so easy.
I think they are easier than an omelet or scramble.
Do you want to know the secret?
The trick is the frittata pan, it actually does all the work for you.
Frittatas are light and fluffy and cooked to perfection!
Stuffing them with all of my farm fresh favorites just makes me want them all the time!
Farm Fresh Zucchini, Onion Frittata Topped With Chilled Organic Tomatoes
serves 2 ... or 1 very hungry person 
4 Farm fresh eggs
1/2 half Zucchini, chopped into cubes
1/2 half white onion
a few pinches of sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
fresh thyme
2 Tbs olive oil + a little more
chilled Organic tomatoes - heirloom, sugar and grape - sliced
Heat your frittata pan with the oil, zucchini and onions.
Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper.
Sauté them until you see some browning.
Beat the eggs in a bowl.
Add the eggs to the the frittata pan.
Sprinkle the freshly cut thyme.
Cover with the other frittata pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Carefully turn the locked frittata pans over.
Cook for 2 minutes.
The frittata is ready when it inflates!
Remove from heat and use a silicone spatula to divide in two.
Plate the frittatas and top with the chilled, sliced tomato variety.
Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and drizzle a little olive oil on top of the tomatoes!
The olive oil helps you absorb the nutrients from the tomatoes better by at least 50% than without it!
Salud!
