New from the archives: three fresh posts (Recipes: slow cooked beef and green chile stew, basic chocolate chip cookies, asparagus frittata for two)
In the first two years of The Perfect Pantry, I posted more than 200 recipes about the ingredients we all keep on hand, and how to use them. I didn't photograph the food I cooked, so each month, I root around in the archives, and update a few of those old posts with new photos and links.
Frittatas remain my favorite weekday go-to meal, usually served at dinner time with a simple salad on the side. Think of this asparagus frittata for two as a formula rather than a specific recipe. If it's not asparagus season, substitute broccoli or zucchini, or leftover cooked vegetables. You can't go wrong with eggs and cheese.
If you're a fan of Toll House chocolate chips, you've probably made these famous chocolate chip cookies. My husband Ted, who does much of the baking in our house, puts something special into them (it's not an ingredient, per se), but you'll need to read the post to find out just what makes Ted's cookies so good.
