  • Reduce the heat, and cook until the inside of the omelet is cooked (less than a minute or so).

  1. I love omelets for breakfast, dinner, anytime. This omelet turns out wonderfully. Spinach is one of my favorite ingredients in omelets, and the tanginess of the feta cheese was a wonderful addition to this omelet. I think a little seeded, chopped tomatoes would make a nice addition. Made for My-3-Chefs, Nov. 2009. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.
  2. I liked this omlette. I think 4 eggs could be reduced. I added cooked mushrooms and sprinkled on some garlic powder. Didn't use salt. I don't think you need it with the garlic powder. Was a great late lunch.


Well, my real name is Brenda, and I am a stay at home mom of 3 boys (ages 6, 5, and 4) and 1 baby girl. I homeschool my boys during the day, and I enjoy cooking with them. I love cooking and trying new things. I like fast, easy recipes for dinner, but I also like more complicated, elegant dishes. We entertain often, so I am always looking for something new to fix. I sent several recipes into the Pillbsbury Bakeoff Contest a few years ago, so I spent a month or so inventing recipes. I will post those here soon. :) I have a son who was born 3 months premature (26 weeks gestation) and is now too skiney (at 6 years old) and sensetive to the texture of his food. I always like finding high calorie foods that he will actually eat! In my "spare time" (ok, 1 night per week!), I design and maintain a website: SeriousMoms.com. I LOVE this site. I look forward to working on it every week. I've made several pages on my site that link to many Zaar recipes--like my Cupcakes page, and my Christmas Gift Ideas, and Recipes for Romantic Dates at Home. :) Lately, I've been enjoying "The Sneaky Chef" with my kids. It WORKS! :) They like all of the recipes so far!! For fun, I also enjoy scrapbooking. I'm currently working on my daughter's baby album. We love adoption! We've adopted 2 of our kids--Noah (3) and Ruby (our baby). It's not always easy, we have struggles (we didn't get Noah 'til he was 14 months, so he has a lot of anger built up in him), but we love it nonetheless. It is a blessing to us to be able to see these kids grow, and to not know what they're going to look like or be like, and to just fall in love with how different they are from us & how those traits never could've come from us. :) <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
