Pie for Breakfast at Two Fat Cats in Portland, ME

Liz Bomze 6 comments

I thought pie for breakfast might be only a midwest treat until I noticed a small sign at Two Fat Cats in Portland, Maine. Minutes later, I was parked at the teeny tiny bistro table they have crammed between the staircase and a speed rack, digging into a slice of sour cherry. More

Wake and Bake: Honey Almond Granola

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

This is a simple granola, the kind you could actually sprinkle over your yogurt without feeling like you just pulled all 16 handles at the frozen yogurt shop. It's the kind you eat with milk, in a bowl, not carry around as trail mix. And I like it that way. More

Wake and Bake: Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I had breakfast flings with everything from strawberry frosted Pop Tarts to Honey Bunches of Oats, but the dish I always came back to was Quaker Oats Instant Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal. This is partly because my father continued to buy boxes of this oatmeal week after week—I believe it's on perma-sale at the Shop Rite in Hackensack, NJ in case anyone is interested. Someone had to eat all that oatmeal, and that someone was me. More

Sweet Technique: Brioche

Sweet Technique Lauren Weisenthal 2 comments

Brioche is an enriched (meaning it contains butter, eggs, milk, and sugar), yeasted French dough that falls into the category of Viennoiserie, right alongside croissant, danish, and beignet. It's best known as a breakfast dough in America, because its fluffy yet stretchy texture lends so well to treats like sticky buns, yeasted doughnuts, and buns containing chocolate or dried fruit. Personally, I love making loaves of it for sandwiches (it tastes like a more buttery and sweet version of potato bread) and once it has staled a bit, it's perfect for making French toast or bread pudding.

Fortunately, the Bay Area is amply stocked with sweet breakfast treats: from French-style pastries to (almost) classic blueberry muffins. We searched far and wide for the best of the best, and narrowed the field to our 11 favorite breakfast pastries all over San Francisco and beyond. More

Wake and Bake: Braided Strawberry Cheese Bread

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

Many people look to celebrities to validate their own behavior. Personally, I've never tried to get into a taxi while missing certain undergarments, gone on a juice cleanse, or poured myself a drink from a magnum of champagne while relaxing on my mega yacht (OK, that last one is just because I'm poor. It's totally on my bucket list.) But I have had one "oh-my-god-a-famous-person-does-it-so-it-must-be-OK" moment, and that came after reading Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl. More

British newspapers are estimating that up to one billion people world-wide will watch the Royal Wedding on Friday. Even if you (claim to) think this is all a big hoopla over nothing, consider this: It's another excuse for a party. And shame on you for denying anyone the right to turn one more ordinary day into an extraordinary excuse to eat scones. Americans will have to get up at 4 a.m. or earlier to watch the wedding live, so here are some British wedding treats to serve your bleary eyed guests. More
