Three Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

A single jalapeno delivers welcome subtle heat to Martita's tender frittata. After letting the vegetables and eggs cook for a bit on the stove, she blankets the frittata with tangy goat cheese and a trio of fresh herbs before putting the skillet under the broiler.

Summer Citrus and Avocado Panzanella Salad

The secret to Martita's salad is starting with toasted bread; by drying out the baguette cubes, she ensures they will be able to soak up the bright lemon-lime dressing and all the juices from fresh produce, like cucumber and cherry tomatoes, with which she tosses the bread.
