Got leftovers?


My mom refuses to let us leave any holiday gathering without a giant stack of Cool Whip containers filled with ham and cheesy potatoes.

I like to complain about it, but I secretly love it. I mean, who’s going to argue with cheesy potatoes? (<<Not me).

Of course, the ham usually gets its first revival in the form of a ham sandwich made on whatever leftover holiday rolls we happened to glean.

But after that, the ham returns to its one true soul mate and life long partner: eggs.

There’s no quicker way to turn leftovers into a brand new meal then to toss them into a frittata. Frittatas are like the Statue of Liberty of the food world. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses…your neglected produce, your wilted greens, your scorned meats. The frittata doesn’t discriminate. It wraps all your forgotten leftovers in its yolky embrace and transforms them into something you actually want to eat again.

This ham and leek frittata is no different. Leftover ham and leeks combine with Parmesan cheese and a handful of fresh arugula to make a satisfying and light meal that’s ridiculously easy to throw together. Made in one skillet in under 20 minutes it seems almost silly that I don’t make frittatas every single night of the week.

Strawberries, blue cheese, bacon, and red onion combine for the perfect springtime cobb salad. You might recall the Mr. has a slight aversion to mixing fruit and savory foods.

Roasted Red Pepper, Feta, and Olive Grilled Cheese #SundaySupper thumbnail

The list of foods I hated as a child was long and dramatic. I would balk at the site of an onion in my casserole, making sure everyone noticed my careful extraction of the offending vegetable. But my disdain wasn't limited to onions. It also included peas, pickles, beets, mustard, brussels sprouts, tomatoes, grits, and [...]
