    Once again we are just a few weeks from the Holidays, here in the US. With both Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner many of us will be hosting family, sometimes for multiple day stays. Usually I like to keep breakfast an easy affair when hosting family, whether it is bagels from...

    Okay, I have to admit, I'm a sucker for Monkey Bread!!! Yes, I know, it probably can't be considered the height of the culinary arts, but damn it's good. Plus, with the holidays coming up soon, it's a great, easy breakfast item that can feed a lot of people with very little effort. For lighter...

    So, I've been left to fend for myself this weekend. My daughter headed down to Grandma's to spend a little time with her and my wife went down to Chicago, picked up a friend, and headed over to Michigan to see an old friend. That leaves me, the dog, the cats and the fish. The goal was to get a...

    I don't often eat breakfast. On days that I work I leave the house too early to even think about eating. It's not that I dislike breakfast fare, it's just that I'd much rather spend the extra few minutes in bed than take the time to eat breakfast, besides, if I eat too early I just feel sick to...

    You would think that after years of having the Internet (yes, younger generation, there was a time before the Internet) I'd get tired of surfing the web. But I still love to surf the web, fall down a rabbit hole and discover new things. During one of my late night surfing sessions I came...

    Souffles have fallen out of fashion, at least in regards to home cooks. I have hundreds of cookbooks spanning back over 120 years. In many of those books, dated from the 50's through the 70's and even 80's, you'd find recipes for all sorts of souffles from sweet to savory. In the 80's their...

    I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again, "My wife rocks!!!!" I woke up this morning to the smell of cinnamon rolls baking, and there is no better smell in the world! I love the fact that my wife can cook so well, which, in this day and age, is saying something. I am constantly amazed...

    I had forgotten how much I like properly shirred (baked) eggs, until this past Sunday, when I was searching for a simple, yet elegant dish for my wife and I to enjoy for Sunday brunch. I wasn't in the mood for an omelet and we always tend to do a variation on Benedicts when looking for something...

    I don't eat breakfast a lot. I think I've said that before, but it is worth repeating. Sometimes I grab a quick bowl of cereal or a piece of fruit on my way out the door, or if I have to stop for gas I might grab a donut and a coke (healthy I know!!!!), but that is pretty much it during the...

    This country is facing a huge problem. Yes, I know, we are facing a lot of problems; the financial crisis, civil unrest, another election where we will have to chose the lesser of 2 evils, etc. The list goes on, but I'm not talking about these front page issues that take up most of our time. I'm...

    I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Ours was fantastic!!! Fun yet mellow. Not quite as relaxing as I had hoped it would be but it never is when you have a 5 year old. She was so wound up for the morning that she expected us to entertain her all day, a theme that...

    A few days ago, I got it into my mind that I wanted to try making an oatmeal souffle for breakfast. I know this is not an original idea, but for the life of me I couldn't think where I had heard of this concept before. Luckily we have the Internet, that bastion of all knowledge. I figured that...

    I don't buy a lot of new cookbooks anymore. There are a couple of reasons for this; I already have hundreds, I have a limited space for my collection, and I occasionally receive new cookbooks for the purpose of reviewing them. That's not to say that I don't buy cookbooks. It's just that my focus...

    So you say you want a recipe? Well today's your lucky day, I am not grumpy, so here goes: I love waffles. The perfect waffle is a combination of technique and ingredients. The type of ingredients matter, the proportions can be approximate. Technique matters, but if you've flubbed a couple...

    Are you burnt out on gingerbread flavored foods this holiday season? Hopefully not as I have a wonderful "gingerbread" bread recipe to share today. I first made these gingerbread pancakes a few years ago and fell in love with them. For pancakes, they are a little on the dense side but it seems...

    For someone who isn't a hug fan of Egg Nog I sure seem to have a number of recipes that use it as a flavoring agent. Go figure! I first served this for Christmas a few years ago and it was a big hit. Since then I have made a few times for groups both big and small, with positive reactions every...

    One of my favorite, year round breakfasts is granola with yogurt. While I love to eat it year round, for some reason I find that I only make homemade granola in the wintertime. I'm not sure why this is as granola is easy to make and doesn't require much time, although it does require firing up...

    Let's face it, we all try to avoid breakfast on T-Day, in anticipation of the huge, gluttonous feast we plan on consuming later in the day, but if you are like me there is no way you will make it until then without any sustenance, especially as all those heavenly aromas waft through the air...

    There's nothing I love more than strawberries, and while the local season is basically over, you can still get them organically at the produce store. My mom grabbed a couple cartons of said organic strawberries for me Baby E a few days ago. They were already quite ripe and there was no way we...
