Master Recipe: Never-the-Same-Twice Vegetable Frittata

watch for new "summer easy" recipes all summer long.

You turn the heat down and carry on, of course but oh that stove is a total mess, really hard to scrub clean! Once, even, I didn't clean the stove for a couple of days. We had a condo on the Florida Gulf Coast for a few days and somehow, surprise-surprise, beach-w…
