    Like SueL said, this has a riot of colorful ingredients and super tasty breakfast. DH and I loved it an will make again. Made by an Epicurean Queen for ZWT5.

    This had a riot of colorful ingredients in it, but the egg held it all together nicely and the flavor was superb, especially with a splash of tabasco on top. I think this would be nice in a flour tortilla as well, with some extra cheese to help seal the torilla to the egg, and either pan grilled or nuked. We all enjoyed here.

I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
