Valentine's Day Breakfast


I love Valentine's Day. I love Breakfast.  Combine the two and it's one of my favorite things to do . . . create a Valentine's Day breakfast!


After making a big fritatta, I used a large cookie cutter to cut heart shapes and a smaller one to use up the scraps.  Of course don't throw away the uncut scraps! Those are for the next day!


Now had I not lost track of these, they would have looked much more like heart-shaped bacon lol! Baked in the oven, these are easy and no mess . . . just be sure to check often!


Strawberries sliced in half with a "V" cut in the top look like little, red hearts!


Ahhhhh . . . biscuits.  How I love a good biscuit.  This recipe is from Tracey's Culinary Adventures.  It is. By far. The best. Biscuit recipe I've ever used and the only one I use.  I think it's not only the honey and buttermilk but the METHOD that makes these a stand out.  By folding the dough several times (see her recipe and instructions), you get these wonderful, flaky layers.  I'm not kidding.  You will never want to make biscuits any other way ever again!


Just look at all of those fluffy, buttery layers . . .


Plated and ready to be enjoyed . . .


Add some pink grapefruit juice, candlelight and a good, hot cup of coffee and there you have it! A simple, HEART-warming breakfast.

  4. Aw, this is just so sweet! I was thinking about your frittatas the other day and how much I enjoyed them when I made them after reading your post a while back. I need to try to find your recipe and try making them again! The biscuits look amazing, too, and the pink grapefruit juice looks so pretty in the glasses! You have such a gift for making everything special!
