Quiche hit its hey day in America in the 1980’s. And that’s when quiche became kitsch. Remember the book, Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche…? (written by Bruce Feirstein) It came out in 1982 and was a tongue-in-cheek guidebook that satirized the masculine stereotypes of the era.
The title is a direct response to the fad of quiche being a feminine, “ladies who lunch” type of food. Funny, because quiche has a long European history dating all the way back to the 12th century. So today we’re going back to the origins of quiche with Quiche Lorraine.
I love shrimp and grits. I am compelled to order them any, and every, time I see them on a menu. But, I had never made them myself. Well, that had to change, especially while we’re here at Tybee. So today, we are making cheesy grits and shrimp, with an egg, for breakfast.
I love a frittata any time of day; serve it with a salad and you have a nice, well-rounded meal with plenty of veggies and nutrients. Plus after a week of heavy holiday food and sweets, it’s a welcome change of pace to eat a little on the lighter side. Let’s get right to it!
Let’s go for broke and make a Ham and Cheese Breakfast Croissant Sandwich. I love the flavors of a Croque Madame, so are we starting there and throwing in our little twist with the croissant. This recipe is super easy, you can make a bunch of them at a time if you have a house full, or you can do one or two. The effort is pretty much the same. Let’s do these Breakfast Sandwiches!
I know brunch is a thing all year long but, to me, the best brunches are those dined al fresco. So naturally, spring feels like brunch season. Today, I am sharing a recipe for Crab Cake Eggs Benedict – perfect for making any brunch a special one, al fresco or not. This recipe might seem intimidating but I have written it step by step – what to do when – so everything will come out together without frazzling your nerves. Let’s get right to it!
There are three things we always have on hand in the fridge; eggs, Mexican chorizo and corn tortillas. And it just so happens that the combination of these three items makes a perfect breakfast. Easy, quick and delicious, these simple Street-Style Breakfast Tacos can be topped with onions and cilantro. You can toss on some cheese, if you like. Today, I am going with a little Mexican crema and hot sauce. Let’s get to it!
Panna Cotta is light and refreshing, and it always seems fancy, even when it’s presented simply – so I had to feature it in today’s Easter Brunch Recipe Round Up. Panna Cotta is one of the easiest desserts I have ever made! It’s perfect for a cookout or barbecue because you can present it simply in a glass or plastic cup and have individual portions all ready to serve, covered in the fridge. Let’s get right to the recipe!
Coconut Macaroons are a hit all year long. Crispy on the outside, lightly sweet and chewy on the inside. They’re light and perfectly sized for a sweet bite. Dip the bottoms in dark chocolate for a decadent treat. Super easy, quick and gluten free, these cookies are a wonderful addition to a holiday spread.
I really love these cookies because they are exactly like the best part of a brownie; slightly crunchy edges and a crackly top, with a soft and chewy center. Super chocolatey and fudgy. A slightly salty edge tempers the rich chocolate and rounds out the flavor. Absolutely perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning, or a cup of tea in the afternoon. Or, maybe a glass of red wine after dinner. Let’s get to these Dark Chocolate Brownie Cookies!
No matter the holiday, Sugar Cookies are always a winning treat. They can be cut into whatever shapes you like and decorated to your heart’s desire. I have come to realize that having a reliable, easy (read: hard to screw up) Sugar Cookie recipe is a must. It is typical for me to over-work dough; this recipe really solves that problem because it all comes together in the food processor. Let’s get to the easiest, Best Sugar Cookies!
