Yummy Breakfast Recipes To Warm You Up!

By Cynthia Giles Communication Committee

It has been so cold and wet recently, making Lost Creek the center of attention for most of us. But while most of us are ready for summer, I love the cold, rainy season because the food is SO MUCH BETTER! Hot, comfort food is the best, and a yummy warm breakfast can be the perfect distraction from the mess outside. Here are a few local recipes I have found to be my favorites!
