Breakfast and Brunch
Most of us hold a special place in our hearts for breakfast recipes- yes, dinner is nice, but starting the day with a plate piled high with salty bacon, tender scrambled eggs and buttermilk pancakes dripping with sweet maple syrup is somehow decadent. And brunch (if you can wait that long) is even better. (Breakfast plus lunch? Score.) But as much as we love the old standbys, there's something to be said for innovation: Try filling your French toast with raspberry jam, or a whip up a sausage and egg breakfast casserole instead of defaulting to poached. Whether it's a simple, healthy breakfast of granola with yogurt or a meat-lovers platter, be sure to include a cup of joe - you want to be awake to appreciate the bounty.See Popular Breakfast and Brunch Recipes
The perfect Christmas breakfast and brunch recipes weigh heavily on my holiday shoulders. "They have to be something anyone can put together the night before," I tell myself. But what if you're heading off to midnight mass? An extra cooking project is the last thing you'll want! "So ... something everybody can make at the last minute." But who wants last-minute cooking on a holiday morning? "At least something light," I think, "and not too sweet, because you'll be eating candy all day." But maybe it's only in my household that we eat holiday candy all day. read more

We love Mom; we love brunch--so you'd think we'd absolutely flip for Mother's Day brunch. But alas, no. You see, come Mother's Day everybody and their mother (literally) is scrambling to make reservations for brunch.
this spring-inspired egg strata with ham, asparagus, and cheese is perfect for Easter or Mother's Day breakfast or brunch.
To make these individual souffles sturdy, Maria Helm Sinskey uses choux pastry (the dough for gougeres and profiteroles) mixed with airy meringue and ricotta. While the inside is nicely custardy, the edges and sides are deliciously crisp. The souffles, which have a lovely, not-too-sweet lemon flavor, can be served hot, warm, or cool, when they become like mini citrus cakes.

We love brunch, and apparently so do a lot of our Recipe.com Facebook fans. Really, what's not to love? So often breakfast gets lost in the morning rush, lunch is on the go, and dinner -- well, it's the source of oh-so-many weary laments ("What to have for dinner?")
Breakfast can set the tone for the whole day, but too often it's rushed, predictable or even skipped altogether. We know it's hard to get excited over a bowl of cold cereal, but how about a delicious breakfast casserole? Even the crankiest of non-morning people are sure to face the day with a smile after enjoying a one of these hearty, warm breakfast treats.
Brunch is a great choice for entertaining around the holidays. Not only is it festive, but many of the dishes can be made in advance. Setting up a buffet-style meal keeps guests mobile and ready to socialize, and as an added bonus, with the feast laid out in front of them, they can pick and choose their favorites!
Every so often somebody comes up with an idea that makes life better for everyone -- say, telephones or the internet. Is it a stretch to include breakfast burritos that list? After all, breakfast burritos are a delicious and easy way to enjoy a variety of breakfast flavors in one compact package.
