loquat-waffles1

Loquat peach waffles

These waffles are light and fruity, probably because they contain nearly half a kilo of fruit. This is a good way to take advantage of Spring’s bounty with a decadent breakfast. I’m still going through my bucket of loquats, which are sweet and ripe. Peaches are definitely coming into season, …

Banana amaretto waffles

This batter yields a soft, mildly banana-flavored waffle, good enough to eat without syrup. I found sweet, ripe bananas at the shook, which were perfect (for waffles as well as any other baked good).

Spring frittata with purple cauliflower and green beans

I’m not entirely sure this merits a recipe, but it certainly merits a photo. So I might as well explain how I made it. We’ve been buying purple vegetables since we discovered them at the Friday farmer’s market in the Tel Aviv port. They definitely liven up any meal. And …

Amaretto french toast

This burst of cold weather we’ve been having is making me want heavy, sweet foods for breakfast, which we eat at an hour that others would consider lunch. Hence, brunch. I recently bought a bottle of amaretto, and I’ve been looking for ways to use it — I bought it …

Kumquat pancakes

pancakes

Saturday morning buttermilk pancakes

We usually make waffles instead of pancakes, and I remembered why when I poured my first batch of pancakes into the pan, and they promptly burned. My waffle iron produces tidy, consistent results, but pancakes take a little practice. In any case, once I stopped burning them, the pancakes tasted …

Oatmeal date crumb loaf

It’s Saturday again, and time for another Saturday brunch. I usually spend several days in eager anticipation, and when I woke up this morning, I decided to turn to my “Muffin Lady” cookbook for inspiration.
