Phyllis’ Mouth-watering Buttermilk Waffles

The batter for these waffles can be made the night before, an especially good thing for brunch entertaining!  I have included two fruit sauces that are delicious on waffles and we often add a few dollops of yogurt.  We also like using fresh fruit and some maple syrup. Make the Waffles: 2 cups sifted unbleached flour** 2 tsp. […]

A Toast to the New Year!

I was on a search yesterday, as per usual, in my many accordion files filled with recipes, for something or other. And once again, what I was looking for had been misfiled! I hate it when I do that! Anyway…when I began checking the other sections in said file, I stumbled upon a section of […]

Come For Dinner!

Now the holidays are over, the menu planning and entertaining involved is done, I can’t help but think about hosting dinner parties.

We are fortunate enough to have access to local hazelnuts so why not make delicious things with them!  I am fond of serving […]

Always a good thing in my opinion!  You could serve the strata with oven roasted potatoes** and/or sausage patties or sausages, for a hearty brunch; on the […]
