Brunch Drinks

Ah, brunch. People go bonkers for brunch. Say the word “brunch,” and your friends will say things like, “Yeah! Great! Let’s do it!” Unless they have kids, in which case they’ll look sort of morose, because instead of going to brunch with you they’re going to be at a birthday party for five-year-olds. But that’s the human condition: Sunday-morning cocktails, then offspring, and finally death.

Be that as it may, in terms of drink options, folks tend to default to one of three things: a mimosa, usually made with some Minute Maid and a bottle of random sparkling wine that someone brought over six months ago; a Bloody Mary (which I’m not knocking at all); or Champagne. Yet because life is short and the human condition is dire, why not experiment while you still have a chance? 3 Fantastic Brunch Drinks. »

Another Cool Use for Pound Cake

What's the difference between a crisp and crumble? And what the hell are Buckles, Grunts and Bettys, exactly? Maybe this clears it up? Whatever the case may be, I don't think this recipe's title is entirely accurate, because pound cake is not a traditional baked-fruit topping. But it is fast, easy and entirely delicious. Here, toasted, sugared cubes of pound cake (lemon-yogurt might just be the perfect choice) cover a steaming, bubbling dish of tart blueberries. Plums, nectarines, peaches, berries, rhubarb, pears, etc., would also do terrifically, especially when served with ginger, coconut, cinnamon or plain old vanilla ice cream. SEE RECIPE »

Who says you can't have brunch and camp at the same time? Just because I have no electricity, running water or plumbing doesn't mean I'm not civilized. These dill-spiked griddle biscuits are delicious with smoked-salmon scrambled eggs. I'm not a huge fan of baking mixes, so I came up with my own version using self-rising flour, powdered milk and vegetable oil; it only needs water to bring it together. If you omit the dill and add more sugar and chocolate chunks, you can have sweet griddle scones, which make great s'mores. SEE RECIPE »

Common Denominator Brunch

Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

I had six people coming for brunch on Sunday and thought maybe I'd give myself a break and put out bagels and lox. No such luck! One guest was a vegetarian, another was gluten-intolerant and a third didn't like lox. Who doesn't like lox?

Then I remembered an article I wrote in February for our Fast column called "Family Dinner Without the Drama." I refuse to cater to every individual taste bud in my house, so I must find common denominators. To satisfy all my brunch guests, I needed to find something gluten-free, vegetarian and lox-less. Then it hit me—baked huevos rancheros! Zesty tomato sauce, tortilla chips, and fried eggs come together in ramekins before being smothered in Jack cheese and baked in the oven to create a dish similar to Mexican shirred eggs. The result was a tasty, superfast meal enjoyed by all of my guests. SEE RECIPE »
