Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Serves 2

I stumbled upon a really wonderful blog this morning, Diana’s Cocina. Her most recent post was for Migas; a wonderful Tex-Mex egg breakfast containing tortillas, onion, tomato and jalapeno. If THAT wasn’t enough, you add some cheese and salsa. She called it “Delicioso”! I call it FABULOUS!!! I got right up from the computer and made it for breakfast. It’s easy and so full of flavor. I think you’ll love it too!


Cooking oil, enough to fry the corn tortilla strips
3 corn tortillas , cut into strips
¼ white onion, chopped,
1/2 of a jalapeno, diced (if you prefer less spicy, remove the seeds)
1 tomato, seeded and diced (I used grape tomatoes, cut in half)
6 eggs, lightly beaten (I only used 3 of the yolks)
handful grated cheese
salt and pepper, to taste


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat and fry the tortilla pieces until slightly crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from skillet and place on paper towel to absorb any excess oil.

Drizzle a little more oil in pan. Add the jalapeno and onion and cook for 4 – 5 minutes, then add tomato and cook for 1 -2 minutes more. Remove from pan and set aside.

Pour eggs into the pan and mix with a spatula, scraping up the eggs as they cook. While the eggs are still slightly runny add the onion, jalapeno, tomato, tortilla strips, salt and pepper. Gently stir, add the cheese, toss a few times until the eggs cook and cheese melts.

Serve with your favorite hot sauce or salsa, with a sprinkling of grated cheese on top.
