Eggs Benedict makes for a Stellar breakfast, albeit slightly messy in the blender...

My husband and I are big lovers of Egg's Benedict, in large part because of the tasty hollandaise sauce that smothers this breakfast delight.

This morning I was inspired to try my hand at making the sauce from scratch once more. I used the "blender method" this time and while it worked spendidly, my blender did manage to spew melted butter across the countertops and nearby appliances. I will have to perfect the use of the blender...

Ham, Cheese, and Everything Egg Bake!

*Note: prepare the egg bake the night before you need it!

Growing up, I had never had egg bake. We made scrambled eggs, over easy eggs, deviled eggs, omelets, and used eggs for baking, but we never made egg bake. My mother-in-law, however, makes it on special occasions and it is probably one of my favorite breakfast foods!

Mediterranean Eggs - taking the classics and adding some pizzazz!

For many years, I disliked breakfast food. I remember traveling with my family and stopping at Perkins. Everybody else ordered omelets, pancakes, toast, cereal, bacon, etc... except me. I always ordered some kind of sandwich, even if it was 9:00 in the morning! The waitresses usually gave me a funny look, prompting me to inquire "is it too early for lunch food?" to which they would smile and reply "No, of course not."

Buttermilk Pancakes from Scratch!

There was nothing quite like mom's weekend breakfasts growing up. She would make pancake batter from scratch (I didn't even know about boxed batters until I was in high school) and whip up a stack of the perfect-sized pancakes. Then we would complete the meal would scrambled eggs & cheese along with some bacon! There is nothing quite like a few strips of crispy bacon to go with pancakes smothered in syrup.

Blueberry Muffins remind me of childhood... and that's a good thing!

I remember blueberry muffins with such a fondness that every time I make them I get nostalgic. Mom only made blueberry muffins on weekends and only a few times a year... and nothing was better than mom's homemade blueberry muffins, unless of course they were grandma's blueberry muffins!
