This Eggs Baked in a Pepper recipe was one of my favorite recipes when I first started blogging. As you can tell from the image, I wasn’t very good at taking food photos, and seriously guys, this photo needs some work. I have been working on re-shooting old pictures and re-vamping past blog posts. How did Y’all ever put up with me back in 2013? I am laughing because the old blog posts were such a hot mess, and so many of you have stuck with me over the years and watched me grow. Thank you all!
I have decided this wonderful Eggs Baked in a Pepper recipe could use a little love and care. Soon I will be redoing the images and giving a more professional looking blog post. I will let you know when I update the blog post. Thank you again for being here through the good, bad, and ugly stages of The McCallum’s Shamrock Patch Blog.
