Breakfast in Bed

personalised gifts for her

What is it about breakfast in bed that's so luxurious? Whether it's fresh-baked brioche and a perfectly poached egg or a stack of wonky pancakes made by little hands (with Dad's help), breakfast in bed is the kind of pampering that just makes us feel loved, treasured, taken care of in the sweetest possible way. Propped on plump pillows, surrounded by all things soft and cozy, nibbling something delicious, it's impossible to feel like anything less than royalty.

Here are a few of our favorite recipes:

Her Royal Majesty's Favorite Waffles

This recipe comes from Bill Bleckwenn's McCall's Cook Book (1963). With two sticks of butter and buttermilk, it's a decadentzip code pillows wholesale, from-scratch take on a Sunday morning standby, suitable for special occasions. Of course, we top it with even more butter and either maple syrup or warmed-up jam. It's also great with fresh fruit and (what the heck) whipped cream. Makes 8 waffles. Use a handheld mixer to better integrate the flour. And it goes faster! Ingredients 4 eggs 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted 1 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp baking powder 2 cups buttermilk 1 cup melted butter (= 2 sticks) Preparation 1. Preheat waffle iron. 2. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. 3. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. 4. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to beaten eggs, beginning and ending with flour mixture. 5. Add melted butter and blend thoroughly. 6. For each waffle, pour batter into center of lower half of waffle iron until it spreads to 1" from edge--about 1/2 cup. 7. Lower cover on batter and cook as manufacturer directs, or until waffle iron stops steaming. Do not raise cover during baking. 8. Carefully loosen edge of waffle with fork; remove.

Fast, Simple, Delicious Granola

Most granola recipes call for long cooking times and lots of stirring. This one, passed along by a friend who got it from her college roommate 20 years ago, is fast, easy and endlessly adaptable. Eat it on its own with milk or sprinkle it over yogurt and top with seasonal fruit.

Mix the dry ingredients: 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 3 1/3 cups oats 1/2 cup wheat germ 1/4 cup sunflower seeds 1/8 cup sesame seeds 1/2 cup chopped cashew nuts 1/2 teaspoon salt

(Feel free to substitute or add whatever seeds and nuts you like, or even add dried fruit.) Then whisk together the following and add to the dry ingredients: 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup oil (You can reduce the oil and add more water, if you like)

Mix well, spread on a rimmed cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Stir and bake another 3-4 minutes. (Or you can stir and just turn off the oven and let it sit for a while -- depending on how dry you like it).

Egg in a Basket

Some people call this Bird's Nest, Bullseye or Toad in a Hole (though British readers would dispute that, as Toad in a Hole is a traditional English dish involving sausage). We call it quintessential comfort food. It's easy to make, satisfying, and its compact form leaves plenty of room on the plate for bacon.

Ingredients

Bread (we like rustic bread from the local bakery, sliced thick)

Butter

1 Egg

Cheese (your favorite, sliced very thin or grated)

Preparation

Using a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter or even a shot glass, cut a hole in the center of one slice of bread.

Butter the bread on both sides and set it in a pan on low heat.

Crack an egg in the hole, taking care to not break the yoke.

Cook until egg begins to set and underside of bread is toasted.

Flip.

While the other side is toasting and the egg continues to cook, season with salt and pepper and top the egg with cheese.

When the egg is cooked to your liking and the cheese is melted, serve.
