Latkes and Eggs

Any reader of this blog knows that I’m obsessed with poached eggs. Jen and I have made so many iterations from Thomas Keller’s Roasted Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Prosciutto, to Thanksgiving Leftovers Eggs Benedict, to  Poached Eggs with Tomato and Salmon, to California Eggs Benedict. The potato latke, though, is an homage to the … Continue reading

Avocado and Egg Pizzette

In a typical weekend breakfast scramble (pun sort of intended) to throw an egg on top of something delicious, I saw that I had all the ingredients for guacamole, but didn’t just want to eat eggs with a side of guac. Enter… avocado pizzette. It not only sounds fancy, but looks more presentable as well. … Continue reading

Skillet Potatoes

Weekend breakfast was always a nice family gathering back home when I was growing up. That was when my dad would usually take the cooking reins and whip up a meal for the family. Other than Corned Beef Hash, my dad would love cooking skillet potatoes with scrambled eggs for our weekend breakfast. And like … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Leftovers Eggs Benedict

After my belated Thanksgiving celebration last weekend, I had a bunch of leftovers from the meal. I found a recipe online for Not So Humble Pie’s Turkey Eggs Benedict on Potato Cakes and thought it was such a creative way to use up my leftover mashed potatoes to form a “bread” base for a turkey … Continue reading

Mashed Potato Cheddar Biscuits

After Thanksgiving this year, I decided to get creative with my leftovers and make a Thanksgiving Leftovers Eggs Benedict. I used the leftover roast turkey slices for the meat, I added cranberry sauce to the Hollandaise sauce, and lastly I used my leftover mashed potatoes to make biscuits.

California Eggs Benedict

For President’s Day Weekend, I decided to surprise my parents with a last-minute trip home.  I flew in late Friday night and spent the night with my sister, who had helped ensure that my living-the-retired-life parents would be home that weekend.  We spent the night plotting our breakfast surprise for the next morning whilst snacking … Continue reading

Easy Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise sauce is an emulsion of egg yolk, butter, and lemon and is notoriously difficult to prepare.  It should be, since it is one of the five sauces in the fancy French haute cuisine mother sauce repertoire, which also includes Béchamel, Espagnole, Velouté (check out my Chilled Corn Velouté), and Tomate. Third time was the … Continue reading

Corned Beef Hash

When I was growing up, corned beef hash was a staple for weekend breakfast in our household.  However, my family would always just buy the pre-made corned beef hash from the can and skillet it up to serve with eggs.  When I decided to surprise my parents with a last-minute trip home and to greet … Continue reading

Sunday Brunch

Brunching is one of my favorite things to do in Manhattan, as the city is packed with a plethora of brunch spots that can suit any desire for a traditional (Bubby’s) or nouveau American brunch (Five Points), an Asian Fusion brunch with a DIY Bloody Mary Bar (Double Crown), a Chinese dim sum brunch (Ping’s … Continue reading
