 Right now I am on the look out for props and I have this fantasy of finding or opening a sort of exchange forum for props where you can swop props or make exchange chains for swapping or ask for things you can’t find where you live, any one who knows anything about a space like this in the blogosphere? Or anyone interested in starting one? I would be User/Member no.1! Please let me know.
Frittata is one of my savers, when I can’t figure out what to make for dinner or when I need to cook up something quick I think Frittata and feel an immense relief. Usually I make potato and spinach frittata with peperoncino but this time I a) used parsley and lemon in them, b) made them small and oven-baked and c) made them small and finger food friendly. When you bake them in the oven, the frittata gets fluffier than when cooked in a skillet on the stove, I don’t know why. And remember, you don’t necessarily have to bake this is in the oven but you can do it the more traditional way.
