Years ago, when I first started Christina’s Cucina, I shared a step by step frittata recipe. I think maybe 7 people saw it, plus a dog.
It’s a shame that all of my “old” recipes are essentially buried in my site, as there are some really good ones there. However, there is a plus side (for me) as I need to update a lot of the photos and am rather glad no one is seeing them at the moment. I just reshot some photos of my bacon and potato frittata, as you can see, but there’s no way that I know of to resend the old post to my lovely subscribers.
So this is what I’m doing: I’m writing a new post to say, “Hey, check out my bacon and potato frittata recipe!” In addition to my step by step frittata recipe, I want to introduce you to Valdo Prosecco and give you some wonderful menu ideas for brunch with an Italian theme!
I have another reason for this post: how could I resist entering a contest to win a trip to Italy when brunch and Prosecco are involved?! I ordered a bottle of Valdo Prosecco through Drizly and the wonderful liquorman (hey, he’s like a milkman, but delivers liquor ?) dropped it off to me the next day.
In order to be in the running to win a trip to Italy, I am to take a photo of brunch with Valdo Prosecco! Not a problem as we often have Prosecco at my house. This was my first bottle of Valdo Prosecco, however, and it was lovely! Valdo is dry and crisp and absolutely perfect when paired with an Italian themed brunch including dishes like frittata, fruit and limoncello tiramisù. I adore contests that include drinking Prosecco and eating delicious food; don’t you?
Here’s the favor I need to ask of you: could you please vote for my photo? Edited 8/22/17 VOTING IS NOW OVER, and I WON!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTES! 🍾 I made it for the top 25 voted entries, and the judges to chose my photo below as the winning submission! The trip includes a special day trip to Valdobbiadene, where Valdo Prosecco is made!
