Harrington House Cream Scones

I’m not sure how I have missed this opportunity, but this is probably the most asked for recipe in my bag of tricks. But I have to give credit where credit is due. My son fell in love with “cream teas” in England which I always tried to duplicate without much success.  For some reason […]

Herb and Goat Cheese Omelet

This is my favorite breakfast, just right if you are only cooking for two.  This fluffy omelet never ceases to impress but it only looks big because you whip the egg whites.  For a bigger group, double up on the recipe, use a larger pan and serve open faced.  Change the herbs and cheese to […]
