EGGS BENEDICT CASSEROLE

I think Eggs Benedict or any of its many versions is one of our favourite breakfast/brunch meals.  It does however mean several stages of prep and more than just a pan or two to put it together (toasting the muffins, grilling the ham, poaching the eggs, not to mention whipping up that perfect Hollandaise sauce).

EASTER ABOARD

Well not quite aboard… still a lot of water to subside before our R.E.D. is ready for another season… but the Galley Kat is making plans… and dreaming… Traditional Easter dinners at our house would include baked ham, all poked with cloves and covered in pineapple slices and my Mom’s brown sugar glaze (remember those Good Housekeeping pictures?), scalloped potatoes (still the best I have […]
