    A “Lavash” Spread for the Daring Bakers

      I’m a little late getting my post up today for this month’s Daring Bakers Challenge.

A quick bake, a scramble of some eggs, a pull on the espresso machine, a steam of milk or just a good old french-press pot of coffee and we have breakfast Nirvana! I had a half portion of…
