The Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients cookbook by Ina Garten has turned out to be one of my favorite Christmas gifts this year. Thanks CK!

A Tantrum Free Omelet

August 6, 2008

Embarrassingly enough I can’t make an omelet. So I just don’t. I’m happy to whip up elaborate scrambles or even a quiche, but if I have to flip eggs in a pan it’s just not going to end very prettily.
