Potato, pancetta and egg breakfast skillet

This week, I have been waking up feeling full of life and buzzing with energy. I feel like I am dancing and singing around the place, now whether I am or if it is in my head I dunno, but it feels good to be alive and free and full of optimism again. The sun…

Baked Epoisses cheese
