"After a long day of blackberry picking, I whipped up a sauce to dress up some crepes I had on hand," recalls Jennifer Weisbrodt in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. "This speedy dish really hit the spot and tied everything together beautifully! The crepes make an elegant addition to any brunch, and the sauce is delectable over warm waffles."
You can easily prepare this the night before for a luncheon or during the morning for a dinner. I serve it year-round, for large groups like my card club or garden club, at picnics and at other occasions. When I do, just about always someone requests the recipe!
My husband and I have been married 49 years (two sons and five grand daughters). I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl. My mother was an excellent cook, and she passed along many of the Pennsylvania Dutch recipes that are popular in this part or our state.
My son and I like to make this breakfast favorite together. You can leave the berries out of the mix and sprinkle them on top, or sub in chocolate chips or nuts instead. —Elizabeth Stewart, Crab Orchard, West Virginia
I especially like to make this breakfast dish when we have weekend guests. I fix it the night before, and the next morning I can sit, eat and enjoy their company. People often think I spent hours preparing it.
As teachers, my husband and I rarely have time for breakfast during the week. So we look forward to relaxing breakfasts with our daughters on weekends. The cinnamon bread in this recipe is a nice variation.
This quick and colorful dish is perfect for family breakfasts. By preparing it ahead of time, I can enjoy many other activities such as cross-stitching, painting, reading and, most importantly, spending time with my three boys!
More of a dessert than breakfast food, these luscious pancakes really know how to showcase the darlings of summertime—strawberries! Both the sauce and cream cheese filling feature fresh, ripe berries. —Shirley Warren, Thiensville, Wisconsin
My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
