Breakfast on the Go: Asparagus Swiss Mini Frittatas

Today is my first day back to work after maternity leave. I had to drop my two cute little kids off to daycare and drive an hour to work. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my job. But I don’t think it’s ever easy for a parent to leave their children. Well, at least […]

Leftover ham combines with cheddar cheese and herbes de province to create a light, fluffy Quick Ham and Cheese Quiche perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or whatever. Me: I’m thinking of making a quiche with the leftover ham for breakfast tomorrow. Shawn: A quiche? (crinkles nose) Am I even going to like that? Me: I don’t […]

After two years of blogging (yes! Cucina Bella turned 2 yesterday! YIPPEEEE! Who knew this on-a-whim experiment with food writing would last this long?!?), it should be no surprise that I am finding the need to return to subjects I’ve touched on before. Specifically, oatmeal. I originally wrote about oatmeal for Fit Fare (before I […]

Blueberries. Mmm. Fresh picked blueberries. Double mmm. After picking blueberries yesterday, I knew I had to do something with them immediately for breakfast. So early this morning, I whipped up a batch of blueberry streusel muffins. I’ve made these tasty muffins before, but this time I amped up the flavor with a bit more blueberries […]

Strawberry Sauce

In the dead of winter, a favorite breakfast around my house are Belgium waffles with strawberry sauce and fresh whipped cream. Once upon a time, my husband would purchase frozen strawberries in syrup in the grocery store’s freezer. But when I started cooking more and started shrugging off premade foods, I started making our strawberry […]

For once, I planned this breakfast menu days in advance. It actually started with the biscuit. When I saw the recipe on A Year in Bread, I knew it was something I had to try (particularly since I’ve had a monster craving for biscuits this pregnancy). But what to pair with it? Being that it’s […]

I was much more daring this week with my breakfast. We had Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon, hash browns, a cheddar omelet split between Will and Shawn, and French toast. Talk about carb overload. Secret of making good breakfast #1: Lower the temperature on the burner! You would think I already knew this, but the […]

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

| June 3, 2007 | 2 Comments

Cinnamon toast anyone? Cinnamon toast happens to be a favorite breakfast for both Will and I. It could have something to do with the fact that I am a disaster when it comes to traditional breakfast foods. Pancakes burn, eggs dry out, sausage turns to rubber … it’s a curse. But one I want to […]
