Cheese and Pepper Mini Frittatas

Total time: 25 minutes
    Mini Frittatas are wonderful, little egg muffins: great, warm, for a starter; great, cold for an on-the-go breakfast.  Pepper is often underrated as a seasoning....

Cheese and Pepper Mini Frittatas Ingredients:


Pork Chops with Spanish Rice 

Total time: 40 minutes
   I use brown rice in this dish.  Mine cooks in 20 minutes and I like the healthy aspect and nutty flavor of brown rice.  You could substitute Basmati, Arborio, or plain white rice
