I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Tortilla Egg Breakfast

Whip this up for a weekend breakfast or have a salad with it for a light dinner idea.

1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsps finely chopped yellow pepper
5 thin slices of tomato
3 eggs
Salt, pepper, smoked paprika, oregano to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella 
1- 8" flour tortilla 
Fresh chopped chives and basil
Salsa or hot sauce (optional)

Heat the vegetable oil in a medium sized frying pan to medium high heat. Add the yellow pepper and cook 2 minutes, then add the tomato slices and cook another 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Beat the eggs with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and oregano and pour over the tomatoes. You can change up the seasonings to whatever you like in your eggs. Let it cook 1-2 minutes then lay the tortilla flat on top.

Cook the egg until set enough to flip. Take a wide spatula and turn the egg over so the tortilla is in the pan. This was a little trickier to do than the TikTok videos let on (at least for me!)  Anyways, once you have it flipped, top with cheese and chopped basil and chives.

Then fold in half.

Cut into wedges and serve hot.
A few drops of hot sauce really hit the spot!
