Page 53 has a recipe for Cinnamon Swirl French Toast I can pay homage to our Irish roots with Irish Style Oatmeal with Cranberries (page. 57). Welcome guests with Cheese Blintzes (page 61). Warm hubby’s employees with Orange Blueberry Muffins (page 64) and so much more.
With the Holiday’s quickly approaching, I’m gonna be a superstar with an appetizer tray of epic variety: Crab-stuffed Mushrooms (page 80). Mini-Samosas (page 82), Artichoke Dip (page 87) and Buffalo Style Hot Wings (page 92).
