BestFest Breakfast at Hassayampa Inn

Staying so close to the BestFest event was great. Thanks to Carolyn Mendoza for getting us wonderful rooms at the Hassayampa with a view, cozy but charming, and including breakfast.

The scrambled eggs served with grape salsa were a hit. Try this recipe from page 33 in Tastes & Treasures and add chopped red grapes for an interesting addition.
