Mother's Day Mini Frittatas

Happy Mother's Day to all! I had the pleasure of being home this weekend and spending some short, but sweet quality time with my mom and sis! We indulged with a visit to Sweet Tooth yesterday! Still the best cupcake I've had to this day, but I will keep on eating numerous other cupcakes just in case there is an even better one out there! When we were a block away, I could already smell the deliciousness! I know it is boring, but I had a plain vanilla. The classic is the best!

This morning we made a delicious brunch before my sister had to depart. We made cute Mini Vegetable Frittatas. Check out how cute they are! They came out quite amazing and delicious!
