Macarons (French Macaroons)
Fill these cute meringue cookies with buttercream for a delightful treat!
Breaded tofu a la parmigiana. You'll just about swear this is eggplant or veal! One of my husband's favorites, and he doesn't even suspect! Serve with a simple crisp green salad, angel hair pasta and garlic bread.
Double Tomato Bruschetta
A delicious and easy appetizer. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little bite. Dried basil can be substituted but it is best with fresh.

Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups
I got the basics of this recipe from a friend of mine and thought it was a great idea since these little nests can be made ahead, which I love. They are delicious, easy to make, and can be customized to your own tastes. I not only use the recipe as a delicious grab-and-go breakfast, but serve it to guests nestled into some lovely cheese grits, alongside fresh fruits and French toast made on a panini press. Oh, and don't forget the mimosas!
Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake
This is a wonderful pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust. The gingersnap really does make a difference.
