Drunken Caramel French Toast
Part booze, part French toast, part bread pudding -- how can you go wrong? This brunch casserole is perfect for entertaining because it can be prepared ahead of time...just pop it in the oven before your guests arrive.
Pancetta Wrapped Asparagus
Big on flavor yet incredibly simple to make, these elegant wrapped asparagus spears take on the salty, “porky” flavor of the pancetta, which is so delicious!
Baby Spinach with Fresh Berries, Pecans & Goat Cheese in Raspberry Vinaigrette
Fresh berries make an elegant addition to a savory salad of baby spinach, pecans and goat cheese. The raspberry vinaigrette — fruity, tart and sweet — enhances the flavor of the berries and brings all of the elements together.
Light and Tender Cream Scones
A good scone is light, tender and buttery — almost biscuit like. So why is it so hard to come by? After many trials, I finally found the answer and it all boils down to one simple ingredient: cake flour.
Spinach & Gruyère Quiche
Of all the spinach quiches I’ve tried over the years, this classic French version is my favorite. It's made with heavy cream and Gruyere, which makes it deliciously rich.
Leek and Parmesan Quiche
Almost 20 years later after a semester abroad in Paris, this is still my favorite quiche: the leeks impart a mellow flavor, while the cheese and heavy cream make the custard wonderfully rich.
Savory Sausage and Cheddar Bread Pudding
This savory bread pudding, brimming with sweet pork sausage and sharp cheddar, is deeply flavored with a crisp, golden crust and tender, creamy interior. Perfect for feeding a crowd.
Strawberry and Orange Salad with Citrus Syrup & Fresh Mint
This is one of my favorite fruit salads, perfect for brunch but also wonderful for dessert served with shortcake and whipped cream.
Quick Cinnamon Buns with Buttermilk Glaze
These are the perfect cinnamon buns: light and tender on the inside, golden and caramelized on the outside and, best of all, quick to make.
Banana Pudding Parfaits
This version of banana pudding is a little more gourmet than most, and bucks tradition a bit, but still tastes wonderfully nostalgic and delicious.
Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread
This banana bread is tender and sweet-scented with a gorgeous ribbon of melted chocolate running through it that complements the banana flavor perfectly.
