Brunch

Buttery Brioche Cinnamon Rolls

The warm smell of cinnamon, butter and a sweet dough baking in the oven is probably one of the best things you can wake up to in the mornings. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know how much I adore breakfast and brunch. Granola, muffins, breads […]

Spiced Apple Cider

It’s cold outside. All you want is sometime comforting, warm and tasty. Look no further than Spiced Apple Cider. It takes about 10 minutes to whip up and will whisk away the winter blues. I have seen many recipes calling for using your coffee maker, but even after cleaning, it’s […]

Pepper & Sausage Brunch Strata

During the busy holidays, we all need simple, but show stopper dishes, we can serve to a hungry crowd. There is nothing easier than an overnight French toast casserole or a hearty egg strata for a big brunch or breakfast. Last November I posted my pumpkin french toast casserole- I […]

Meggen’s Mac ‘n Cheese

There are only a few days left in 2020 and I don’t know about you, but I am going to carb load one last time before the “2021 diet & new me” plan starts up on New’s Year Day. This insanely good Mac and Cheese is one of my most […]

Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

Orange Cranberry Muffins with Walnut Crumble

When looking for the perfect breakfast treat to make for family or to share with friends this holiday season, look no further than these scrumptious Orange Cranberry Muffins with a Walnut Crumble topping. The batter seems heavy, but the muffns bake up light and tender. Slather with rich European butter […]

Banana Pots De Créme

I adore banana pudding. I used to make bowls of this creamy treat when my children were in rowing and we had pot luck suppers at our house before regattas. Now that my children are adults, I love serving grown up versions of their favorite childhood desserts. This banana infused […]

Pumpkin Créme Caramel

During the holidays everyone expects a spectaular dessert after a big meal. But sometimes a heavy dessert seems like too much. I love smaller “show stopper” desserts that have a little portion control element. This pumpkin créme caramel is the perfect finish to one of thsoe heavy meals. It’s light […]

Fall is here and that means apple cider, cinnamon, pears and baking all weekend. Here is a fresh and flavorful cocktail that you can make tonight and enjoy all weekend. We add crisp white wine, vodka and apple cider to a mountain of fall fruits like pears and pomegranates. SO […]

Pumpkin French Toast Strata

As far as entertaining goes, one of my favorite parties to host is brunch. You can set everything up the night before, no fussing with appetizers, everyone is more relaxed and food for brunch is typically so simple to prepare. One of my favorite things to make is either an […]
