WHOLE WHEAT CHOCOLATE WAFFLES WITH PEANUT BUTTER MAPLE SYRUP

If you love chocolate and you love waffles, this is the perfect, decadent, brunch recipe. It would also be a terrific pre-made food on a brunch buffet; you can easily pick it up and eat it (basically using your hands). You can also adjust the amount of milk and eggs in the recipe to suit your taste: if you like a rich, cakey waffle that the syrup soaks into and imbues with the candy bar-like flavors of maple syrup and […]

KALE ZUCCHINI LATKES WITH POACHED EGGS AND CHIVE YOGURT

My daughter made me try this recipe. Kale-zucchini pancakes? It sounds like some health nut went completely overboard with the kale recipes and lost their way. She found this recipe on the GOOP website – and she was totally right about it. They are delicious, and while there is a little potato in them to bind the veggies together, they have many fewer calories than a potato pancake. Add a poached egg and a little plain yogurt with chopped chives […]

LAZY SUNDAY BLACKBERRY LEMON PANCAKES

You know what makes good pancakes? Bisquick. There it is – the secret’s out. You don’t have to make pancakes from scratch every time – I mean, who doesn’t have other stuff to do on a Sunday morning, like sleep? I add things to the Bisquick pancake dough to elevate it a bit – in this case, fresh blackberries and a squeeze of lemon juice. The blackberries turn the dough slightly blue, which is pretty and fun, and the lemon […]

COCONUT AND FRESH FRUIT OATMEAL

This isn’t a recipe, so much as an assemblage of ingredients for a truly delicious breakfast. If you think of oatmeal as a gunky, glutinous mess, this will change your view forever — this oatmeal is soft, creamy, and coconutty, with lots of crunch from the seeds and coconut chips and little pillows of fresh fruit flavor explosions all in one bite. And it couldn’t be easier — just make sure you have a can of coconut cream in the […]

FLUFFY OMELETTE

I love a Breakfast Presentation. You know what I mean – you’re sitting stoop-shouldered at the kitchen table, sleepy and cranky and feeling as if you’ve lost the power of speech, and then someone places a fluffy omelette in front of you and everything changes. These omelettes are so beautiful and easy (basically you’re just adding one step in separating the eggs and beating them to peaks before cooking the omelette.) It emerges as a light, soft, soufflé-like creation, topped […]
