Christmas Breakfast – Tablescape and Recipes

I have another tablescape today and two special breakfasts for the holiday.  This is really the most fun time of year for special meals and pampering those we love.  Starting out with the stoneware Christmas plates, I set a table with a plaid tablecloth.  These plates are used a lot this month, and each one …

Cinnamon Egg Nog French Toast

Last holiday season, I had some egg nog left over after Christmas.  I wanted to do something special for a New Year's day breakfast and just thought eggs, french toast, why not try using the egg nog?  Of course, knowing that DH is a cinnamon hound, it wasn't hard to figure out what to add. …

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

It's the first day of spring, so we are ready for a fresh breakfast cake, perfect with a cup of coffee.  I had blueberries and a lemon, and set to work creating a recipe for a light and lovely coffee cake.  It would be lovely as dessert too. Something with blueberries and a hint of …

Valentine Decorating

Valentine hearts finally came out over the weekend. I haven't done anything new quilt-wise for Valentine this year, unless you want to count the red and cream Scrap Dance Waltz.  But I did put up a couple of things from years past.

Gardening Rabbits Tablescape

I just love this tablescape!  I was gathering some pretty things for the table, and I really wanted some springtime colors.  So much of my tablescaping in the past has been in the cooler months.  Seems I like to do more nesting when it is cooler.  But, I saw these in a  catalog, and I …

Valentine Breakfast

Since I decided to do breakfast instead of dinner for Valentine's day, the tablescape is simpler.  What better way to put a little romance on the table than with these pink depression glass dishes, a pattern called Cherry Blossom. Aren't they sweet on the pretty white placemats? There are paper heart napkins under the red …
