The thing that no one talks about in food blogging is that you develop some really weird eating patterns. The question of the day isn’t “what am I having for breakfast or lunch,” it’s “what are we working on and can it be considered a meal?” In December, testing cookie recipes every day was a bit of a sugar rush.

A very green vegetable frittata recipe that's packed with broccoli, scallions, feta, and spices. Easy to make and perfect for a weekend brunch.

There’s some green, some red (a tiny bit), and more green… because the more veggies you can eat early in the day means the more cocktails and cookies you can enjoy later on.
