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

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.
