Paired with a crisp salad, this stunningly-simple dish is fantastic for breakfast, brunch or lunch!
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium-large leeks, thinly sliced (white and pale green parts only)
8 large eggs
3 tablespoons minced dill
3 tablespoons minced chives
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
4 ounces smoked salmon, flaked
Pinch each of sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat the broiler. Melt the olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add the leeks and sauté, stirring often, until tender, about 4 minutes.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, herbs, salt, pepper, goat cheese and salmon. Pour the mixture over the leeks and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and cook until the edges are set but the center is still runny, about 4 minutes. Place the pan under the preheated broiler and cook until the frittata is puffed up and golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Earthy mushrooms and fragrant garlic elevate farmstead eggs in this stunning scramble.
1 cup sliced Cremini mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
½ cup milk or cream
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. In a large skillet, heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add in the garlic and sauté until softened and tender, about 4-6 minutes. Add in sliced mushrooms and briefly sauté until mushrooms are golden brown, then season generously with salt and pepper.
2. Meanwhile, crack eggs and break over a shallow bowl. Break yolks with a whisk or fork, then add cream and mix together vigorously. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Add eggs to skillet and stir, cooking until eggs are just set, tossing to mix with vegetables. Top with fresh parsley to serve.

1 cup buckwheat flour
¾ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
¼ to ½ cup water
1. To make the crêpe batter, combine all the ingredients (except water) in a blender, and blend until smooth. Cover the batter and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
2. When you’re ready to make crêpes, thin the batter with water, using less water for thicker crêpes and more water for thinner ones.
3. Preheat a crêpe pan or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly grease the pan with butter, oil, or pan spray, then pour in enough batter to thinly coat the bottom of the pan; swirling the pan as you pour the batter will help ensure an even coating. Cook the crêpe for 1 to 2 minutes on the first side, until it’s golden and lifts from the pan easily. Flip it over and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes on the other side.
4. Transfer cooked crêpes to a plate, stacking them on top of one another, and keeping a towel over them. Fill as desired; serve warm.
