Welcome to my cooking blog. My name is Michelle Jenkins. Let me start by admitting that these are NOT gourmet meals, they are NOT fine dining, but they are mine. I have cooked all of these recipes and taken my own photos. They are fairly simple recipes, most of them are quick to prepare and cook and all of them are delicious. I only post my successes! If something doesn't work out, I don't post it. I hope you enjoy this blog.

Spinach and Capsicum Frittata

This is the first frittata I’ve made and it was simple and yummy…


  • 2 medium red capsicums, finely chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
  • 120g frozen chopped spinach
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan with heat-proof handle (see tip below) over low heat
  2. Add capsicum, onion, potato and 2 tablespoons of cold water
  3. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. Cook, covered and stirring occasionally for 10-15mins until potato is cooked
  5. Add spinach to pan, stirring through while it thaws
  6. Pour eggs into the pan ensuring that uncooked egg goes under the vegetables
  7. Cook for 5 minutes or until the base is golden
  8. Meanwhile preheat grill to high
  9. Place pan under hot grill and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden and just firm
  10. Cut into wedges and season with salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. Serve hot or cold

TIP: If the handle of your frying pan isn’t heat-proof, cover it with foil to stop it burning.  D-E-L-icious XD
