Bacon & Eggs on Honey-Ricotta Toast

Bacon & Eggs on Honey-Ricotta Toast

Everyone in my family loves bacon & egg sandwiches for breakfast. We might not have them everyday but we certainly have them often. For today’s sandwich I made it just a wee bit different. Toasting up a hearty slice of Italian round loaf bread and slathering it with a little bit of creamy ricotta, drizzling on some fresh sweet honey and topping it all with crisp thick bacon and a fried egg. I loved it! I’ll be making these again and again… Continue reading

Country Breakfast

Country Breakfast

I recently shared one of my grandmother’s stand-by recipes: German Potato Salad. Here’s another one of her favorites! Mom Mom (Catherine) was a ‘meat & potatoes’ cook…she loved serving potatoes since a little goes a long way and there were many mouths to feed! I’ve taken her Country Breakfast recipe and adapted it for four servings. It’s hearty and filling and a great weekend breakfast! Continue reading

Roman Eggs: Soft Boiled with Pine Nut Sauce

Roman Eggs: Soft Boiled with Pine Nut Sauce

I love a good challenge! Recently I participated in a North Indian cuisine challenge and today I am submitting these Roman Eggs to The Roman Recipe Challenge hosted by Natascha’s Palace. There is a long, rich history about Eggs in Roman cuisine. I’d never really thought about how they cooked in days long gone but did you know that eggs were one of the most expensive food items? So when they were presented at table they were a delicacy! A recipe for Soft Boiled Eggs with Pine Nut Sauce dates back to the 4th or 5th Century in a Roman cuisine cookbook collection, Apicius, specifically named after Marcus Gavius Apicius, who’s known as the first Gourmet. My recipe has been adapted for modern times and boy is it a delicious breakfast…I can see why they were delicacies!

Bacon & Gruyère Quiche

Bacon & Gruyère Quiche 3

Quiche used to intimidate me. Whenever I would order it out, you would get this tiny piece for a lot of money. I always figured it must be very hard to make… until I made it! Truth is, nothing could be more simple or versatile. You can put anything in it and it comes out perfect every time. Now I make it when I have people for brunch and everyone wants to know what I did to make my quiche so light and fluffy. Well, this is what I do… Continue reading

Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros are a typical breakfast of Mexico that I first tried quite a few years ago when visiting Cancun. There are so many different additions that can be added for variety. My favorite way to make it is to top it with chorizo sausage. The spicy meat adds such a great flavor to the creamy egg & cheese along with the black bean salsa combo… Continue reading
