    Uova al Tegamino

    My husband, Sergio, grew up in post-World War II war-torn northern Italy.  Food was not plentiful but fresh eggs were always available for consumption, though not in excess.  His family, like most other families in the neighborhood, owned 1 or 2 hens that they could always rely on for an evening’s meal.  Sergio ate this at least once a week back then.  He loves to make this recipe – for the good taste and for the good memories.

    When I’m not in my Italian home, I’m a city girl, with nothing more than a few potted herbs and tomato plants on my deck. In early fall, before the cold sets in, I start cooking with whatever herbs I still have growing. The beauty of this recipe is that you can choose whatever herbs you may have at arm’s length and your frittata will be as sumptuous as this one. I try to include at least three different herbs.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
