Waking up to a beautiful day at The Red Rocker Inn! Good morning! Today we're making one of our favorite egg casseroles - Creamy Herb Eggs. This is not a recipe with specific amounts of the ingredients, so I hope you're ready to dive in and be creative and free! Amounts don't really matter too much on this one. It'll be good no matter what.
We're going to start by going into the back yard and snipping some fresh herbs. Today I'm using dill, parsley, and chives.
Then I'll soften some cream cheese. I'm making two casseroles to feed the whole house, so I'll use 8 ounces of cream cheese.
Mix in your chopped herbs, some salt and pepper and a little garlic powder.
Here's my favorite egg-scrambling fork. I'm sure you have one too. I'm using about 42 eggs for two pans and adding some salt and pepper.
cook the eggs until they are still soft and somewhat moist. They'll cook more later
Dollop the herbed cream cheese onto the hot eggs and then swirl it around with a fork.
Pour on a generous amount of heavy cream and let it settle into the eggs.
Mix together some bread crumbs, grated parmesan cheese and melted butter and sprinkle it on your egg casserole. If you have a few plain potato chips, go ahead and add those too.I'm adding a little more parsley on top to make it pretty.
Finally, bake it in a 350 degree oven until it's just hot and golden brown. Don't over cook it. Remember your eggs were already nearly cooked before they went into the oven.

Waking up to a beautiful day at The Red Rocker Inn! Well, this is one project that took longer than I thought it would. But here we are, the beautiful Pinehurst room is finished, and what an improvement we have!
This was a very inexpensive room to redecorate. And of course, that's my favorite way to do things. I seldom think of decorating as a project "done". It is always on-going and that's what keeps it fun and keeps your imagination fresh. Most of the accessories were brought from other areas of the house. The biggest change came from simply a new coat of paint. Add some toile pillow shams and curtain valance and some cream and tan buffalo check bedding and that's about it. I count my blessings, the next project will definately be more involved!
I can tell someone worked hard many years ago to paint these nice big stripes on the wall.
But isn't this just a bit easier on the eyes?

Waking up to a beautiful day at The Red Rocker Inn! There's a certain satisfaction about taking something old and making it new again that really appeals to me. That's why re-decorating our inn is so much fun. And also why I watch a lot of home renovation shows.
This time, it's The Pinehurst Room and this is me (my fingers) sewing new curtains and pillow shams for the room. Stay tuned for the before-and-after pics in a few days. This is really a relatively simple room re-do, but what a big difference you'll see!
Speaking of old-to-new, maybe you'd like to take a peek at your house too, and see what you can do to give it a fresh new look. Maybe you can just move a rug or a picture to a new location and the whole room will look brand new.
