Huevos Rancheros

"This Mexican, "ranch style" breakfast comes from The Australian Women's Weekly cookbook, Cafe Favourites. You can serve it with some Tabasco sauce, or some hot chilli sauce, if you want to heat it up a bit!"

    This was a great breakfast meal, we really enjoyed it for breakfast this morning with toast and tea. I used my own homemade salsa I had just made with tomatoes out of my garden. I also made 1/2 of the recipe using eggbeaters for dietary reasons and it worked wonderfully. thanks

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
