Smoked salmon and rye bread add a new twist to the traditional eggs Benedict. Sauce can be set aside at room temp for up to one hour. When ready to serve, reheat gently in double boiler.
Baked Apple Roses
Rating: Unrated

Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake

A light biscuit topped with delicious strawberries.
Chocolate Cream Puff Swans
Rating: Unrated
These chocolate ganache-filled cream puff swans would be a great way to say thanks to your mother for that whole giving-you-life thing. I think once she tastes them, she'll agree that it was all worth it after all. Make more swan 'heads' so that you have extra in case one breaks.
Chef John's Steak Diane
Rating: Unrated
Steak Diane was a staple on menus in fine dining establishments back in the day. Prepared tableside where the server ignited the cognac, it was an impressive sight. You don't need to flame the cognac; just keeping it on the heat will eventually evaporate the alcohol. But be careful--it can still flare up if the heat's high enough when you're reducing the sauce.
Classic Waffles
Rating: Unrated
A lovely, crispy waffle perfect for the morning.
Overnight Blueberry French Toast
Rating: Unrated
This is a very unique breakfast dish. Good for any holiday breakfast or brunch, it's filled with the fresh taste of blueberries, and covered with a rich blueberry sauce to make it a one of a kind.
