The Pioneer Woman – Egg-in-a-Hole

I love The Pioneer Woman – I repeat, I love The Pioneer Woman.  The author, Ree Drummond,  is an awesome photographer, has yummy recipes and a great sense a humor which spills over onto her writing bringing the simplest sentence to life.

The Pioneer Woman

While searching her Recipe Index, I came across Egg-in-a-Hole  –  Oh, the memories and flashbacks of my mom making this for breakfast many times, and how I made them for my children.  Funny thing is, I haven’t made them in such a long time and I don’t know why – but thanks to The Pioneer Woman, my family will be enjoying them tomorrow for breakfast!

Home, Home on the Range…

Sometimes, when I’m out showing homes in the Carmel, Brewster, Patterson and Pawling, NY areas – I can’t help but to sing, “Home, home on the range…” on-the-range-neilsphotography                                                                                                Neilsphotography – Flickr.com We don’t have any buffalo, but we do have lots of horses and cattle!
