There has been lots of behind the scenes planning and finally the day is here. A BIG surprise shower for Maria and Josh from Two Peas and Their Pod! Today is your virtual shower for baby pea!! A group of your blogger pals have gotten together to shower you with virtual love and to celebrate your sweet little baby.
Whenever I am at parties you can find me in the corner stuffing my face with all sorts of savories. This protein junkie always craves cheese and eggs so what better than to cook up a frittata for your shower.
Maria and Josh I hope you enjoy your party! All my love and the best to you and your sweet family during this special time in your lives.
Maria, I hope you like that graphic I designed for you. I know how much you love the color green. There is lots of green in this post. It kinda matches your blog.
Baby peas, eggs and your favorite cheese will make the perfect frittata. Take your pick on what kind of cheese you want to use….
Feta ~ Gruyére ~ Mozzarella ~ Parmesan ~ Brie. Anything goes. Really.
While in Telluride this summer I became addicted to sunflower sprouts. They are a delicate little leafy green with a slight hint of sunflower flavor. Speaking of sunflower ~ my Sunflower Seed Cookie Sandwiches would be nice at this baby shower too. They can be served to all the gluten free and vegan guests.
This frittata is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or mini meals. Pack it in a lunch box. Or serve it at a bridal or in this case baby shower!
Did I mention that a BIG dash of Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce makes it even better? If you like hot sauce that is. Also a side of roasted sweet potatoes or baked sweet potato fries is a great thing.
Congrats Maria and Josh. I am so happy to know you both so well. I can’t wait to meet baby boy pea and to celebrate with your family for reals. Also I look forward to skiing with you in Utah. Someday.
Listed below are the links to the awesome bloggers who shared their finest treats, crafts, bites, sips ooohhs and ahhhs. I want some of each.
Also a shout to my awesome party planning pal Lisa from With Style and Grace. Party with us all and lets celebrate *life*

This is such a wonderful idea and I’m in awe of the amount of planning that has gone into it.
This frittata looks gorgeous and just the thing for a virtual party.
All the best to Maria and Josh 🙂

I know Sue, I wish this shower was for reals so I could enjoy all the goodies and see all of you in person 🙂
Yum this looks good! I’m going to have go look for sunflower seed sprouts.
Rebecca, you must! I am addicted to those sunflower seed sprouts. Hope I can find them easily (& reasonably priced) in the OC. They were all over Telluride 🙂
Love the graphic! adorable!
I need to make this frittata soon! Very soon.
I love baby peas – this frittata looks great!
Marla, you’re just SO incredibly gifted. That is a lovely design, and popping in a subtle way, if that makes sense. I love it!
It makes so much sense Sophia. Thanks so much for the sweet compliment. It was fun to work on that graphic. Love that pea green 🙂
So sweet of you to organize this shower.
I just love frittata! this one looks so fresh and delicious!
I’m having such a great time (distracting myself from REAL work tonight) reading all of these baby shower posts. I can only imagine how excited Maria and Josh must have been to find out! The frittata looks delicious – can you believe I’ve never made one before? Must change this…
What a sweet gift for the little pea to be! Also, what beautiful photos. I LOOOOOOOOVE your new boards. You did such a great job. I think you might have another side-business possibility in your future.
Hey Brooke, gosh girl I am gonna miss those “boards” That is actually a little table from the place we stay in at Telluride. So it will be a “seasonal” piece. You will know when I am out there when you see that table top in my photos 😉 xo
I feel like frittatas are the new quiche when it comes to things like baby showers…way healthier and way more delicious! You did SUCH a great job planning this! I love Maria and Josh, so it’s made me so happy to see so many people celebrating their new pea!
Gorgeous photos of a delicious frittata! And what a fun virtual party 🙂 Congrats to Maria and Josh on the upcoming birth of their sweet boy!!!
I could eat eggs and fresh peas every single day, and I love a morning shower that includes some kind of egg dish. This is the dish I would be hovering over – it’s beautiful! What a lovely job you did organizing this virtual shower for Maria.
Such a cute idea! I love this virtual shower 🙂 And your frittata!
This is such a nice post! You and your friends are seriously the nicest. Love this!!
Looks wonderful, my dear, and you are such a sweet friend for putting this together w/ Lisa. I MUST find sunflower sprouts!!
aaaww that is so cute 🙂 I am sure it made them very very happy and this looks just so yum.
So elegantly displayed..and love the glass of peas touch 🙂
I’m a little late to the ‘party’ but wanted to say that I love this recipe and I love the idea of a virtual baby shower! Yum yum.
Thanks Erin….never to late to the party my friend. So glad you could join us 🙂
Just found your blog and I love it! We have the healthy mom thing in common. I can’t wait to get post updates. Thanks for sharing so many great recipes!
I made this for lunch today and it was delish! Myself, Hubby and three little munchkins demolished this beautiful frittata with a lovely side salad and wholegrain roll in no time at all. The best part – I did not hear ‘I’m Hungry’ for a very long time. Was well received and kept everybody satisfied for hours. Thank you x
Emily, that is such wonderful news!! Thanks so much for sharing with me. I LOVE to hear when people have great success with my recipes ~ even better when the kids love it too. Happy to also hear there were no “I’m hungry’s” for quite some time after. We know how that goes 😉 Have a great Sunday! ~m
