Heat waves? You don’t want them in the kitchen! So how about no-cook or short time cook ideas from our cookbook, 8 Broads in the Kitchen’s Breakfast and Brunch Recipes?
You will love Pineapple Napoleon (page 22)! I’m cooler (it’s 90 in Philly) just thinking about it. Chilled Peach Soup (page 34), Ray’s Strawberry Soup (page 37), or Blueberry/Blackberry Yogurt Parfait, page 38)? No sweat.
Here are some minimal baking time idea for muffins and breads: Matthew’s Buttermilk Biscuits (page 60), Fig and Kumquat Scones (page 59), White Chocolate and Cranberry Tea Scones (page 57), and Apricot Walnut Muffins (page 45). Sure to please!
Blueberries are in season! Sweet entrees take only minutes with Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes (page 87), Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes with Lemon Sauce (page 88), and Blueberry Pecan Waffles (page 110) are great choices.
Our savory breakfasts require no cooking or can be made in minutes. Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast (page 166) anyone? Omelets take just a few minutes on the stove or in the oven, such as Rolled Omelet filled with fresh vegetables from the farmers market (page 129). How about a Breakfast Burrito (page 172)? Ole! And Basil, Tomato, and Egg Scramble screams summer!
What to serve for a side dish? The Parmesan, Heirloom Tomatoes (page 198) or Corn, Tomato, Beet, and Basil Salsa (page 207) get rave reviews every time as does the Potato Galette (page 194).
Toppers take no time and easily enhance whatever you’re serving. How about Strawberry Salsa (page 205), Lemon Curd (page 220), Bourbon Pecan Syrup (page 214), Caramel Sauce (page 215), Blueberry Sauce (page 218), Lemon Sauce (page 219), Cilantro Butter (Page 223) , or an easy Hollandaise Sauce (page 226).
