The refrigerator light goes on...

Frittatas make the perfect weekend brunch and they're great when you have guests. You can serve them hot fresh out of the oven, but they're great cold as well.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.

I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles, but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there's no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef.
