Well, we think you should plan a fancy schmancy New Years Day brunch. Really. A perfect way to start 2010 if you ask us. Plus, if you’re a tired mommy who can’t stay out to party the night before (9pm is the new midnight momma) this will be a special way to mark the holiday. You can include the whole family in the prep and invite all your mommy & daddy friends, and their wee ones as well. We’ll be making some delish dishes from our new Stonewall Kitchen Breakfast cookbook. Famous for their restaurant and cooking school in Maine, this cookbook is full of yummy recipes and tips for making breakfast work for your busy life. We’ve been testing out some scrumptious recipes, like the whole grain blueberry pancakes, their eggs baked in pancetta cups (to die for!) and the basil and goat cheese muffins (brilliant on a busy day)…all very satisfying, tasty and easy to make. We swear. Stonewall’s recipe book also has a great section of breakfast menus, perfect for whatever you have planned (we hope the husband reads the “breakfast in bed” menu in time for Valentines).
