I love breakfast. Maybe it's because things like eggs, blintzes and French toast are familiar and comforting, even if I do fiddle with the recipes. When I'm in the mood to indulge myself (or someone else), I make breakfast for dinner. I don't bother to set the table. I just curl up in a comfy chair, or better yet, I arrange a tray and take dinner to bed.
