No need to go to that break room at your job and have awkward conversations while your food heats up! Instead, pack our herby tomato salad with fresh parmesan or make some bacon cheddar chicken calzones that you can easily eat in the privacy of your office.
Now if you happen to be home, preparing yourself a great lunch to enjoy, you can try one of the recipes that is a little more advanced but totally doable for any culinary level. Our basil, bacon and red pepper frittata recipe is the perfect example of a lunch that you can put together at home and then anticipate, excitedly, as it makes your whole house smell delicious while it bakes.
