I had a coupon for one this week, so I bought it and had NO idea how I was going to use it.
Then it HIT me!

  She and her hubby have a beautiful home that they open up to guests, “The Columbus Street Inn”, and her breakfast menu sounds amazing! (You know if they run a Bed and Breakfast, her breakfast recipes HAVE to be delicious, or they’d just call it a Bed!)  Anyhow, she shared this recipe with me, and it did not disappoint!
