Simnel Cake

Simnel Cake

Simnel Cake is popular in the U.K. It is traditionally decorated with a circle of eleven or twelve almond paste “eggs,” representing the twelve apostles. (The one missing is Judas.) This recipe was adapted from the one given to me by my British mother-in-law.

Flaky crust, ripe pears and sweet almonds. This recipe is based on the one on David Lebovitz’s blog. I have also included a link to his article about poaching pears.

Homemade vegetarian huevos rancheros

Huevos Rancheros Recipe

I’m not sure when or where I first tried Huevos Rancheros. It certainly isn’t something I grew up eating, but today it’s one of my favorites. This dish is especially satisfying during the colder months–when appetites are extra large. And don’t restrict Huevos Rancheros to breakfast. It’s terrific for lunch or even supper.

Green Salad with Oil and Vinegar Dressing

Green Salad with Oil and Vinegar Dressing

This ultra simple green salad recipe starts with fresh, crisp greens and finishes with a light vinaigrette of olive oil, sherry wine vinegar and Dijon mustard. It was adapted from Green Salad with Oil and Vinegar Dressing on Epicurious.com.

Parisian Hot Chocolate

Parisian Hot Chocolate For Two

My favorite breakfast of all is a super fresh, light and crispy croissant served with a small cup of Parisian Hot Chocolate. Unlike French Hot Chocolate, which is typically made with cream or a combination of cream and milk, Parisian Hot Chocolate is made without cream. The milk is whole, of course, and the chocolate has to be really good.
