Blueberry French Toast

Brioche french toast smothered with warm blueberry sauce and served with lemon whipped cream French toast is such a fun Sunday treat to me but I have a rule: I never both unless I have brioche. I’m a brioche french toast kind of girl. It takes just a few minutes to make but I just…

Pineapple Yogurt Bowl

Go on a backyard vacation with my easyย pineapple yogurt bowls! I am missing my beloved Caribbean terribly today and was inspired to take a little vacation in my own backyard with a tropical breakfast: pineapple yogurt bowls. My dog Gabby was into it. My longtime readers know that I adore pineapple. It’s one of my…

Norwegian Gravlax (How to Cure Salmon)

I might never buy lox again. My world has been rocked by the simple act of curing my own salmon. I don’t know if I’ve ever been prouder of myself in the kitchen! Gravlax is a cured salmon dish that originated in Norway where they would bury fresh fish in the sand. The salt pulls…

Bagel Board

What, pray tell, is more fun than a bagel board for breakfast? I adore bagels. It’s a little known fact here on The Rose Table, although some of my die hard readers might have noticed my staunch love of bagels by the fact that I usually will order the lox and bagel at least once…

Mushroom Omelette

I sure wish I had taken more photos of this beautiful breakfast! I just snapped a couple before gobbling it up. I wasn’t planning on writing about this but it’s such a great dish, that I’m really noting this for myself. ย I especially wish I had taken a photo after cutting into it so you…

Simple Vacation Breakfast at Home

My dear friend Eric is in Hawaii right now and his photos are making me miss my island time! On a whim this morning, I decided to bake up another batch of my Coconut Muffins since I had coconut milk that needed to be used up and, well, one thing led to another, and I…

Coconut Muffins

I don’t want to be hyperbolic here, but this is the best muffin recipe on planet earth. I first ate this perfect morsel of coconut goodness at beautiful Montpelier Plantation and Beach on the Caribbean island of Nevis. I loved them so much that I begged my friends at Montpelier to give me the recipe,…

Brioche French Toast

This is one of those dishes that looks fancy but takes minutes to prepare. You can easily scale this up and make French Toast in an electric skillet for a group, but I’ve noted a single serving below. French Toast is one of the first dishes that I learned how to make. I made it…

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

What could be a better afternoon treat than an orange chocolate chip scone? If you aren’t a fan of orange and chocolate, feel free to substitute a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for the orange zest. These are old fashioned buttermilk scones that don’t require a mixer or rolling pin. It comes together much like…

Cherry Almond Scones

This is the first cousin to my popular Cranberry Vanilla Buttermilk Scones. My Cherry Almond Scones have just enough almond extract to have you wondering what that lovely flavor is but not enough to overpower the cherry. These are great when you want fruity scones but have no fresh fruit on hand. They look so…

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry lovers, this one’s for you! This bright and cheerful English buttermilk scone is bursting with fresh blueberry flavor. The dough comes together in minutes and they’re delicious warm from the oven or leftover. No rolling pin required! I like to pick buckets and buckets of blueberries in the spring to keep them on hand…

Delicious, Easy Brunch

I had some friends over for brunch yesterday and couldn’t believe how easily this came together! I honestly think was my best brunch spread yet. I baked the coffeecake the day before and made the Belgian waffle batter (a double batch) the night before. The morning of the brunch, I made two pans of maple-glazed…
