1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
4 large (burrito-size) flour tortillas, warmed
Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add eggs and milk; scramble in skillet.
Cook until barely set, then stir in salt, pepper, chives, jalapeño, tomato, and salmon.
Spread 2 tbsp. cream cheese onto center of each tortilla. Spoon warm egg mixture over cheese, dividing evenly. Roll up burritos, tucking in ends.
Serve with salsa.  ( Salsas make for great gifting too )

Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottom and sides of a 13- x 9-inch pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil, allowing 2 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease foil. Stir together 1 3/4 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 20 to 23 minutes or until lightly browned.  Whisk eggs in a medium bowl until smooth; whisk in coconut, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir together baking powder, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup flour; whisk into egg mixture. Pour over hot crust.  Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until filling is set. Let cool 1 hour on a wire rack. Lift from pan, using foil sides as handles. Remove foil, and cut into bars.
