Do organic farmers use pesticides?

Cooking Omelets with Vegetable and Herbs from a Home Kitchen Garden
Kitchen gardens come in handy when making omelets. I had a little vegetable and herb garden at one of the houses my husband and I owned once.
This kitchen garden omelet recipe was made one Sunday morning when I cooked a kitchen garden omelet with some leftover ground turkey and cheddar cheese for Hubs and me. I walked out to the herb and veggie garden just outside the kitchen and chose a mini green bell pepper, a few basil leaves, and a couple of tomatoes from my Roma tomato plant. I love to use fresh herbs and veggies from the garden.

How to make the perfect omelet
Want to make the perfect omelet? Purchase an omelet pan if you plan on cooking omelets often. My eggs kept sticking to the only omelet pan I’ve owned. I fixed that problem. I started cooking the omelets on an electric griddle and using a spatula to shape them.
An omelet pan:
Make rectangle shapes, half moon, or however you want your omelets to look. No problem, though, should yours not come out looking ideal.
