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.
