Breakfast Salad with Cinnamon Toast Croutons and Maple Vinaigrette

I may have mentioned a time or two how much I hate mornings, which is really a crying shame, because I love breakfast! I mean really love breakfast… Since I don’t get up early unless absolutely required to (which now that I’m working is a little too often for my blood), I am always looking […]

Bacon and Chive Scones

Some girls are really into diamonds and other lavish gifts. Me – not so much. They’re nice, but if you really want to get on my good side, I like imported chocolate and a BIG slab of good quality smoked bacon. A nice bottle of wine wouldn’t go amiss either. I’m easy. And I’m deadly […]

Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch Menu

My Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch final project is complete, and I’m pretty sure I aced the sucker.  All right, I totally aced it because I’m a perfectionist and chronic overachiever from way back. Here’s the table setting… Before you ask, the white plates on the bottom are the Country Living Collection from K-Mart, if you […]
