Cherry Cream Cheese Danish

Every summer when we head north to be with family, my husband and I both try to claim to be from the Cherry Capital. I say it is Michigan, and he insists it is Wisconsin. While the dispute is ongoing, we do agree that both places grow delicious cherries. Whether you like them freshly picked,…

Green, Eggs & Ham Crêpes

Perfect for a summer lunch or brunch, this delicate dish is full of flavor, impressive and easy to pull together. They are especially simple if you use pre-made crêpes, which are often available in the produce section of the grocery store. The dish also lends itself to using what you have on-hand, allowing you to…

The Full Farm Sandwich

Sometimes the healthy egg white breakfast won’t cut it. Sometimes it takes the full farm to please the palette. For those mornings, treat yourself with creamy scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, guacamole, & gooey cheese all stacked on a crisp english muffin. *Ingredients below are for two sandwiches. Adjust as needed! Ingredients 4 Large Eggs 4…

Silver Platter NB&J

I’m almost embarrassed to post this as an actual “recipe” but it’s just so darn delicious, I had to share it. We all know how to make a classic PB&J sandwich. Being probably the most classic meal that every kid & parent default to for lunch, it’s probably not what you think of when you…

Scrambled Eggs with Whipped Feta

Brunch in our house often consists of waffles, but sometimes we like to create a savory main dish. But of course we add a sweet side (almond kringle, anyone?!). The star of this particular brunch though is the slow roasted tomatoes and the herby olive oil that is then whipped with feta cheese. OMG. The…

Crispy Roasted Smashed Potatoes

I’ve been making these potatoes for so many years, I cannot remember if I found it in a recipe book, if it was inspired by a friend, or created based on something I ate out at a restaurant. It’s possible it’s a combo of all the above! I do know that on our honeymoon in…

Blueberry Lemon Curd Pastries

One downside of not dining out during a pandemic is no gourmet brunch. You know, the ones where you order the most amazing main dish, but then it comes with not only bottomless mimosas, but a basket of homemade pastries. I usually don’t crave these sweet treats, but when you haven’t had one in over…

Breakfast Spinach Pastry Cups

Whether you make this dish from last night’s leftovers, or make it all at once, this fried egg spinach puff pastry is one to remember. The flaky, buttery crust… the savory, creamy spinach… all topped with a perfectly fried egg… is it time for breakfast yet?? Ingredients Eggs Butter or Olive Oil Salt & Pepper…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Rolls

Yup, I sure did. I managed to make dessert breakfast. And wow is it tasty. While autumn has not quite set-in down here sunny Florida (82 degrees is cool, right?), my tastebuds and clothing attire are begging to differ. I woke up with a craving for pumpkin pie. After going through my kitchen, I had…

Egg & Pesto Toast

Have I mentioned how much I love having a Farmer’s Market outside our Boston apartment? Every Wednesday a collection of vendors gather literally right below us. Just-picked garden vegetables, fresh baked breads, recently laid chicken eggs, right off-the-hook fish… it’s a foodie’s dream. So yesterday, I selected a wonderful loaf of wheat bread, the most…

Gruyere Spinach Quiche

We had house guest the other weekend, and in preparation for their arrival, I made breakfast in advance. For those who know me, they are very aware of the fact that I am not a morning person. So the more I can get done prior to the AM hours, the better. This quiche is the…

Breakfast Birthday “Cake”

Birthdays are a big deal in our family. They are all about celebrating life, and enjoying the special day. As such, there is no need to wait until after dinner for a special indulgence. The day should begin (and end) with a celebratory meal. Now, you could always just stick a candle in a stack…
