Ricotta Spread with Home Made Ricotta

I took a day off from work recently with the thought of relaxing and doing almost nothing.  From the moment I woke up, I did whatever I wanted – long walk with the dog, coffee on the coach, watching master classes, flipping channels, etc.  The lack of the ‘have to do’s’ left me open to…

Basil Goat Cheese Scrambled Eggs Over Toast

When reading the name of this dish, you could probably guess exactly what is in it, but it was perfect Sunday breakfast.  Really what had happened was that we had left over cake when we first woke up, but then realized that later, we were still hungry and wanted something that would be real food,…

Pop Overs

Nothing is more wonderful on a Saturday morning than coming downstairs to the smell of some sort of dough cooking in the oven and coffee ready to go.  This wonderful thing happens because there is another person that makes your house a home and that person loves to work on breakfast items.   There was a…

Easy Homemade Pancakes

Saturday & Sunday mornings are some of the best times in the world!  The sun is shining when you get up (only because you get to sleep in), the coffee is hot and open for whip cream topping (a luxury only reserved for weekends), and a fun time snuggling in bed or laughing over something…

Mediterranean Spiced Eggs with Puff Pastry

Breakfasts on the weekend can be a great time to create something new and fun.  I cannot take credit for this dish since the significant other had reign of the kitchen on this particular morning.   What to have for breakfast?  No particular dish was planned, but what he knew is that we had eggs,…

Caprese Frittata

One thing that always happens when I visit my family is that we whip up great breakfasts on the weekends.  I mean all out kind of breakfasts that are awesome when feeding a large group of hungry people.  Pancakes with bacon, cream cheese or berry Kringle’s, breakfast burritos, eggs – in many different ways –…

Biscuits & Gravy

Day light savings weekend is the perfect time to plan a brunch.  You get the best of both worlds…you get to sleep in and relax like Sunday mornings should be and you get to make a great meal to spend the rest of the morning laughing with wonderful people.  You don’t have to make the…

Eggs Benedict

If you were to pole the average 8 year old what they would like for breakfast on a Saturday morning, the answers that you may get could be cereal, french toast, pancakes…you know, the standards…but if you were to pole our 8 year old, the answer would be Eggs Benedict.  This 8 year old is…

Baked Eggs

When you are cooking for company and easy is the name of the game, this recipe kicks it.  Some of my family came into town for a few days and I wanted something easy for Thanksgiving breakfast.  Easy was NEEDED because right after breakfast, the dessert making commenced for the large Thanksgiving dinner that we…

Stuffed French Toast

I don’t know if I have ever met someone who doesn’t like french toast.  I know that there has to be someone out there, but everyone I know does like french toast.  And everyone I know that knows about Stuffed French Toast, loves that even more. Once again, it’s about making the meal special and…
