Eggs Benedict Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 296
Overnight Eggs Benedict! Easy to make ahead, perfect for brunch or a special occasion or overnight house guests.

Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

Rating: 5 stars 168
If these pancakes were any lighter, they would float off the plate--and I didn't even separate the eggs and whip the whites. Also, I used water instead of milk--and I liked them better that way. I like to serve these with a pat of butter, a pinch of lemon zest, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

French toast casserole is served with a drizzle of warm homemade strawberry sauce.

Almond Berry Smoothie

Rating: 5 stars 41
Almond milk and almond butter are the star ingredients in this berry smoothie for a nutritious, on-the-go meal that is vegan and paleo-friendly.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Rating: 4.5 stars 830
This is the way to get crisp bacon without having to constantly turn it, watch over it, or get burnt by splatters of grease. It 'fries' up flat and doesn't curl, which looks great beside a breakfast plate of eggs, and makes BLT sandwiches much easier. Very nice when feeding a family or crowd.

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 609
These fabulous muffins have a crunchy sweet sugar topping and are great with no extra added butter or jam.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 951
The easiest way to get perfect Hollandaise sauce is to use a blender. This recipe has all the same ingredients as the classic, but no double boiler and no chance of the sauce separating. I love the lemony flavor on fresh steamed asparagus!
