Cornmeal-and-Ricotta Waffles:
When Michael Mina was a boy, his parents used to take him to the now-defunct Four Seasons hotel in Seattle for Christmas brunch, where he always ordered waffles. “They were dynamite,” he recalls. This recipe is as close to the one of his childhood as he could get it. Cornmeal makes the waffles crispy; ricotta keeps them moist. For the full recipe click here.

Baking these cinnamon rolls in big batches makes the effort worth it—they take time but are so satisfying. For the full recipe click here.

Bacon, Cheddar and Onion Quiche:
“To make a proper tarte flambé, you need a wood-burning oven with a stone floor,” explains Jean-Georges Vongerichten of the thin-crusted Alsatian pizza topped with bacon, onions and fromage blanc. Here, he folds those same basic ingredients (replacing the fromage blanc with cheddar) into a light custard and bakes it in a buttery pastry crust. “Not everyone has a pizza oven at home, so I decided to make it in the form of a quiche.” For the full recipe click here.

Blueberry-Banana Pancakes:
Tyler Florence made these pancakes at home one weekend morning with his son Hayden. They’re a slight variation on a recipe from his book, Tyler Florence Family Meal. For the full recipe click here.
