  1. Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! I made it almost as instructed. The exceptions being that I didn't have rosemary, fresh or dried, so I used Italian seasoning instead. Oh, and I added some fresh minced garlic. Had to bake an additional 5-7 minutes also. We loved it! Very quick and easy to prepare.
  2. Great for brunch! I made half the recipe, added some red bell peppers with the onions, and otherwise followed the recipe. Under the broiler, it puffed up at bit just before it was done. Very good but DH said he'd rather have cheddar cheese. I'd like this with either cheese. Very easy and good.


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
