french toast frozen waffle

One morning we had no bread in the house, and our daughter was whining for French toast. I figured a frozen waffle might do—we always have those around, mostly because nobody in our house really likes a frozen waffle. Well this is a way to actually make them taste good. Make it the way you […]

blt bacon

This weekend my husband came up with this version of a BLT. Using the inner leaves of some romaine lettuce as his base, he added in a stripe of mayo, then a thick piece of bacon, and chopped tomatoes on top. Let’s just say they went fast.


As you can tell from our numerous salad and breakfast concoctions, we are obsessed with hardboiled eggs. If I could have any superpower, it would be the ability to lay my own (edible chicken) eggs. We love them fresh, we love them slightly undercooked in the middle. Nothing bums our hardboiled egg high and interferes […]


There’s a great cafe in Tribeca called Kaffe 1668, where they have a Greek yogurt breakfast option that is genius. First, they scoop the yogurt (plain is best) so it looks like ice cream balls.

I was at my favorite grocery store on the East Coast, Wegman’s—and saw a yogurt I hadn’t heard of before, Noosa, so I figured I’d try it out. The next day, I was with a friend who has an extremely discerning palate, and we tried it. It wasn’t just good, it was great. Like so […]


One recent Saturday, I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed, and of course that was the one morning all my daughter wanted to do was a cooking project, and further, we had hardly any food in the house. So after gulping down some coffee, I surveyed what we had, then looked in The James […]


I worked with someone this week who told me about these sliced apples, topped with peanut butter and granola for breakfast. The fun part was how the apple was sliced. through the middle like donuts! This sounded like a great, new breakfast idea to try out on the kids, who were thrilled with the fun […]
