If you are planning a Mother’s Day brunch and can not decide what to make, try one of these three dishes that will always be a winner.
½ cup sugar
½ cup oil
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
2 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 stick of butter
4 teaspoon baking power
2 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon vanilla extract
Warm maple syrup
Electric Waffle Maker (non-stick), One large mixing bowl, a spatula, pancake and waffle pouring cup, large mixing spoon, measuring cups and spoons (1 cup, ½ cup, ¼ teaspoon, 1 tablespoon)
Take sugar, flour, eggs, milk, baking powder, and baking powder. Using the large mixing spoon blend the ingredients until everything is blended. Add oil, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Blend in until you have a thick mix.
Heat the non-stick waffle maker on medium. Using the pouring cup, pour mix into the waffle maker mid-center. Close the waffle maker an it should take about 10 minutes. Remove with a spatula, serve on the plate, spread butter on the top, and poor warm maple syrup.
I would choose Belgian Waffles instead over Pancakes any day. It is so delicious that it will melt in our mouth. It has a crispy outer and moist on the inside. I add cinnamon and vanilla extract because those are two flavors that I love mixed together. The recipe can be altered with anything from fruit to other sweet seasons to personalize the recipe.
Three Egg Omelette’s (made to order)
12 large eggs
16 oz cheese
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups green bell pepper
4 cups crumbled cooked bacon
12 oz salsa
Nonstick electric griddle, medium mixing bowl, small serving bowl, whisk and spatula.
This has been one of favorites at any breakfast or brunch. I have family and friends over a lot for breakfast and brunch and this is always one of their favorites have family over a lot for brunch and that is because we are late sleepers. This recipe’s ingredients are used because everyone in my family likes some or all of them.
Whisk three eggs and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Turn griddle on medium and allow it 5 minutes to heat up. Pour salsa into a small serving bowl and add bell pepper, onion, and crumbled bacon to the egg mix. Whisk again until blended. Pour egg mix onto the griddle, when cooked like a soft scramble, add cheese, and fold into a half moon with the spatula. Cook for 2 minutes and it is ready to serve. Top with salsa if desired.
This is a simple recipe that I put together. I feel that a great omelet, made to order is a winner at any brunch.
Green Salad w/Walnuts, Cranberries with Hot Bacon Dressing

½ cup of water
Salad Mixer, medium size skillet, cutting knife, sauce pan, measuring cups and spoons, large metal cooking spoon, small metal or ceramic mixing bowl and salad bowl.
Using skillet cook bacon until crisp. Mix corn starch, cooking oil and water in mixing bowl. Remove crisp bacon from skillet, pour bacon fat into mixing bowl, and blend ingredients. Pour ingredients into sauce pan, add sugar and water until the dressing is in between thick and thin. Using the salad mixer put lettuce, walnuts, and dried cranberries. Mix for 3 minutes until blended and put in a salad bowl for serving.
I am not much of a salad eater. However, years ago, I would go to one of my favorite eating places that had hot bacon dressing in their salad bar. I had not been to another restaurant that served that dressing. I decided to dabble when cooking to see if I could create something similar. After many tries that tasted terrible, I finally created a dressing that I loved. It would never be the dressing that I fell in love with but it is close enough.
