  1. This recipe was very easy to make; not much preparation, and the instructions were clear and precise. It was delicious. I will be making it again.

    1. Hi Larry,
      I’m glad you enjoyed this recipe. I like to give my husband a healthy breakfast before he leaves for work in the morning, so I tried to make this as easy as possible. This way he can have time to make it before he leaves. Thanks for stopping by.
