Carrot Cake Waffles with Cream Cheese Butter

Carrot Cake Waffles with Cream Cheese Butter

“These waffles are satisfying and delicious. I actually made them three weekends in a row! We have decided that these waffles are good for any meal of the day! The first time we had them for breakfast, the next weekend I made them for brunch with the kids and the third time, well we had them for dessert. The cream cheese frosting is the perfect accompaniment for these waffles, but if that isn't enough, feel free to top it with syrup also.” - Mangialicious
Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

“As beautiful as this plate of wonderful is it taste even better. When was the last time you had french toast that the syrup was optional? Seriously,I love syrup as much as the next person but this strawberry cream cheese filling is so yummy all by itself. This breakfast/brunch is so simple you will want it all the time but it is good enough for those special occasions like Mother’s Day or Easter Brunch.” - Debbie

Fluffy Cottage Egg Casserole

Fluffy Cottage Egg Casserole

“Perfect for busy mornings or serving a crowd, this casserole can be mixed together the night before and baked when you’re ready.” - Paula
Easter Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

Easter Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

“These breakfast sandwiches were a big hit in the Test Kitchen. They have the perfect balance of savory and sweet. In our mind, putting an egg on any sandwich and it's an instant winner. We love the basic bacon, egg and Swiss cheese flavor combination. Dipping the sandwich into syrup was so good and created a sweet/salty flavor profile. The sandwich is just as good without the syrup too. Perfectly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, the waffle makes a great base for this yummy breakfast sammie.” - Kitchen Crew
Easter Brunch Pie

Easter Brunch Pie

“The buttery flaky crust holds an egg and cheese mixture filled with chunks of savory ham. The cheeses and seasoning complement the ham perfectly in this pie. Ricotta cheese and eggs give this pie a different texture. The filling was a little bit softer than a quiche but still firm. It was a great surprise at how yummy it was. We can't wait to make this again.” - Kitchen Crew
Mama's Deviled Eggs

Mama's Deviled Eggs

Hot Crab Dip

Hot Crab Dip

“Sweet lump crab meat is the star ingredient in this hot crab dip recipe. It's creamy, cheesy, and delicious. The seasoning is just enough to have a little zing, but not enough to take away from the richness of the dip. This could be a little on the fancy side or served at a very casual event. So good!” - Kitchen Crew

Mom's Dinner Rolls

Mom's Dinner Rolls

“Freshly baked dinner rolls are always tasty and this recipe makes an excellent dough. These are tender, fluffy yeast rolls. Or, you can smear the dough with softened butter, cinnamon, and sugar to make yummy cinnamon rolls. It's a classic recipe you'll use over and over. Easy to make, skip buying the frozen rolls and try these yeast dinner rolls the next time you want fresh bread.” - Kitchen Crew
Honey Roasted Carrots

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Biscuits

Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Biscuits

“Made these this morning! Wow-oh-wow!!! I didn't have shortening on hand and had to use butter instead. I was worried it wouldn't come out right and was concerned about the amount of salt. I followed the recipe as it was written (except for the butter substitute). These are the best biscuits I have ever made. I'll be making these again and again and again. Thank you!” - Sherry

Cherry Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Cherry Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breasts

“Stuffing a chicken breast is easy to do and elevates basic chicken. This version is stuffed with a creamy herb goat cheese and sweet, tart dried cherries. It's encrusted with a pecan crust. The chicken turns out perfectly moist and tastes amazing with the creamy cherry pecan filling. This is easy enough to prepare for a family dinner but can also be served as a fine dining dish.” - Kitchen Crew
Tennessee Carrot Cake

Tennessee Carrot Cake

“This is the best carrot cake I have ever tasted. I only used 1/4 cup pecans as my husband doesn't like nuts. I also used two 1 oz. boxes of golden raisins. The cake is in the fridge and every time I walk by I slice off another taste. lol Thanks for the recipe but not the extra calories!” - Kathy

Dump Cake Surprise

Dump Cake Surprise

“A dessert you can throw together in minutes is a must in any Recipe Box. This blueberry dump cake needs to be saved. The end product reminds us more of a cobbler than a cake, but either way, it's delicious. It has a gooey blueberry filling with crunchy bits of pineapple in every bite. The buttery top layer just melts in your mouth. What a treat!” - Kitchen Crew
Italian Creme Bundt Cake

Italian Creme Bundt Cake

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

“This recipe blends two springtime favorites - carrot cake and cheesecake - into one magical dessert. Once baked, it's basically like stuffing a carrot cake with a cheesecake. With hints of spice, bits of carrot, pineapple, nuts and coconut flakes, the carrot cake alone is delicious. The cheesecake is creamy and the cream cheese frosting is tangy with a subtle pineapple flavor. When all 3 elements are combined together, you have an amazing dessert.” - Kitchen Crew
