|Limoncello Dirty Martini|
Citrus is at its best in the winter months, and this cocktail combines a classic martini with a splash of limoncello — a sweet, lemon-flavored aperitif. The recipe serves four, so invite some friends over and assemble an Antipasto Tray or Deviled Eggs for an effortless, elegant get-together.
|Irish Bacon Benedict|
Start your Saturday with this riff on classic eggs Benedict, which calls for lean Irish bacon (but you can substitute any bacon you like). Enjoy with Broiled Grapefruit and a warm cup of coffee.
|Caramelized Onion and Gruyère Pizza|
