Ina’s Cacio e Pepe Eggs

Ms. Ina claims she makes cacio e pepe eggs for dinner parties of the ‘breakfast for dinner’ variety. While I find this somewhat hard to believe as this was exceptionally simple, they were a little more special than your usual scramble, so why not. I’ll buy it, like I’m off to buy some more Pecorino….

Loaded Biscuits

Loaded biscuits, biscuit bombs, cheddar-apple-bacon-chive biscuits, clean-out-the-fridge biscuits. Would a biscuit by any other name smell as savory? Whatever you call them, hop to it for a winter morning loaded in biscuity indulgence. Loaded Biscuits

Blueberry-Lemon Yogurt Cake

My go-to coffee cake recipe received a small makeover this morning involving one lemon that really elevated the recipe a bit. It’s amazing how lemons make absolutely everything better. When life gives you lemons, toss them into a tried and true recipe.

Hashbrown Crust Quiche

Christmas this year saw the introduction of a beautiful new brunch creation that was as simple to make as it is colorful– hasbrown crust quiche! Made in a springform pan, it looks daringly more elegant and complicated than it actually is. She held together quite nicely when sliced! Hashbrown Crust Quiche For the crust: For…

Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles

Leftover whipped sweet potatoes crowding your fridge? I can attest that shoving them in some waffle batter is an excellent use of their efforts for breakfast the next day and perform equally as well in the toaster on day two. Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles Adapted from Grace and Good Eats

Chalet d’Adrien- Verbier

An absolute MUST for a phenomenal (re: pricey) brunch is a reservation at Chalet d’Adrien. Absolutely worth the $99 a head splurge. Linger for hours over table after table of food where NOTHING you taste is even remotely ‘meh’. The wine service is very attentive and the views are breath taking. You can walk it…

Ina’s Whipped Feta Bruschetta

Leave it to Ina to have to best bruschetta recipe. The lightly whipped cheese, which serves as a brilliant glue so that the tri-color tomatoes don’t go rolling around your cream-colored rug makes the snack as pretty as it is delicious. Ina’s Bruschetta 6 oz. feta 2 oz. cream cheese (or nature cheese in Switzerland)…

Arugula, with Pecorino, Pinenuts, and Pears

For a recent Italian brunch I hosted, I opted for a different salad and very glad I did as it was quite delicious. The recipe from Saveur is conveniently the name of this dish. A new go-to for certain that also looks nice spread across a platter rather than mixed in a bowl Arugula with…

Chiche ou Pas Chiche- Geneva

Chiche (chic) or not chic… that is the question. Actually, the question is what does this really mean??? Also, why haven’t I been here before?? A charming patio just off of the park in Plainpalais and an easily-Instagrammable interior coupled with delicious food- finally, I could have a go-to lunch/brunch spot in Geneva! We were…

Ina’s Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Pancakes. Sweet stuff for brekky in general… not generally my jam, but occasionally, something is so special you must make an exception. I’ll do nearly anything for Ina. I will do actually anything for lemons and ricotta is always nice. So, one sleepy Saturday, this recipe found it’s way into my skillet, all thanks to…
