Breakfast

 

Bananas Foster Pancakes

I wanted to kick my breakfast game up a notch, as Emeril Lagasse would say, and invoke the flavors of Bananas Foster. But, I had no desire to be setting things aflame in my kitchen at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning while just sipping my first cup of coffee.

Stuffed French Toast with Strawberries

The bread is toasted and golden now, filling the cabin with undeniable aroma of French toast. One slice goes down on the plate, promptly smeared with sweetened cream cheese and layered with fresh strawberries, then topped with another steaming hot slice. The cream cheese begins to fall over the edges, the strawberries peeking out. I dust the plate with powdered sugar like a light snowfall and take it to the table where the syrup is waiting and the light is still pouring in, reflecting back at me in pools of maple.

No-Bake Granola Bars

When I’m at my local library or bookstore, you can most often find me in the cookbook section. Shocker, I know. When I pore over a cookbook, I’m looking for more than just recipe inspiration. I’m taking in the food photography and styling. I’m soaking up the fine design details like the fonts and colors. I’m listening to the author’s voice and seeing if it resonates with my own. I’m familiarizing myself with the weight of the paper, the texture of it, the way it smells when the book is opened.
