The Spanish Omlette- Breakfast Recipes Made Easy

I have been using this wonderful Spanish omelette recipe for over 10 years now. In fact, it was among the first few cooking recipes that turned out well for me after I began my culinary adventures post marriage.

My dreams of cooking great dishes for my husband ( like the ones they show on cookery shows and lovely recipe books) soon came face to face with hard reality. He was I must say very supportive to say the least, probably because he feared (looking at my plight) that his newly wed bride would burst into tears at the slightest negative remark.

The initial few experiments or rather disasters in the kitchen were creations even I could not taste leave alone eat. Anyway from there the journey of marriage now over 10 years has brought me to a stage where I can confidently say that I am the “Best cook in the world” for my little eight year old daughter and yes, my husband is a relieved man for there are no real disasters that he has to be witness to(or rather taster to).
