Back in the day when Duoshao was a tyke, namely the late 70s/early 80s, one of the children's shows such as Electric Company or something similar periodically showed a short film of a complex machine that cooked breakfast. Does anyone remember this? I'd love to watch it again. [more inside]
Starting this Saturday I will be in Dallas for a conference for five days. Most of Sunday will be free. What are some nice things to do to explore a bit of the city in one day? I love just walking around a new-to-me city, what would be a good area to do that, and how do I get there? I will be staying near East Transfer Center. Any advice on cheapish breakfast options around there are also appreciated.
The recipes I'm seeing for Dutch Babies (aka German pancakes) all entail blending the batter in a food processor or blender, in order to have a lump-free batter. I don't have either of those appliances, but I do have a stand mixer. Have you made Dutch Babies without blending? What were your results? How hard a requirement is the blending, as opposed to Very Serious Mixer mixing?
My mom and I will be going to NYC next week to see Hamilton (!!!!) and I'd like to take her to a nice breakfast/brunch/lunch with an interesting and beautiful view of the city on Tuesday. [more inside]

Every year around July 4, I host a brunch party. I got one of those triple slow cooker things for a wedding gift almost 5 years ago and haven't used it yet. I would love to use it for this party, somehow. Tell me recipes to utilize this thing. [more inside]
For breakfast I usually have two multigrain wasa crackers with peanut butter. On some days I have hummus. On others I have sliced avocado. I am getting bored of these. [more inside]
On April 17, M's pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma faces Yankees starter and former NPB teammate Masahiro Tanaka at Yankee Stadium. I would like to watch this game, which is in New York and starts at 10:05a Seattle time on a Sunday, out of the house. Any suggestions? [more inside]
We're staying in London late August/early September. We want to see the Cotswolds and West Sussex. We're thinking overnight trips where we take a train out of London and then get around by bike might be more fun than renting a car and driving around. Is this plausible? [more inside]
Help me potentially recreate an amazing breakfast scramble (lots of veggies!) I had last weekend, as well as perfect my general scramble technique! Last weekend I had a life-changing (or at least breakfast-changing) egg scramble at J&M Cafe in Portland, Oregon. It had: three eggs, leeks, mustard greens, parmesan cheese, mushrooms, and, joy of joys, whole cloves of roasted garlic. It may have helped that I was still bleary-eyed and mildly hungover, but it was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Now I want to make it at home! [more inside]
If I make a jar of waffle batter and keep in in the fridge (for morning before-school hot waffles) will it a) kill us, and b) continue the chemical action necessary to make light, fluffy waffles?
We're expecting baby #2 in a couple months. I have plenty of practice and am happy with our make ahead/freezer dinner options, but with a toddler in the mix now, I know I'm not going to have the time to prep breakfasts and lunches immediately before mealtimes as often as I do now. I'm looking for your favourite ideas/recipes/blogs to cover those meals. [more inside]

I'm making my annual solitary pilgrimage to Disneyland/California Adventure for 3 days in August. It's summer, and their diamond celebration is going on, so I anticipate mad crowds. I'd like to avoid eating in the park as much as possible. So what can I eat to keep me full (meals and snacks)? [more inside]
When I was in Monterey I had a tex-mex migas like I'd never seen and I've always wanted to recreate it at home. it was the traditional tex-mex migas ingredients (tomato, bell pepper, onion, egg, cheese, tortilla chips) but it came out standing whole and firm, not unlike a flan and it cut like one - moist but really sturdy, not falling apart, almost like a quiche? The non-egg stuff was diced superfine and just melted into it. How did they make this and how can I do it at home? [more inside]
I'm trying to nudge the kids (4.5 and 18 months) towards lower sugar/processed carb breakfasts. Protein is good, fat is fine, we're not counting calories - one's majorly underweight and the other's a toddler. "Nutritionally dense" is what we're aiming for. But there are snowflakes. Always with the snowflakes. [more inside]
I'm hooked on these really dense, chewy granola bars from a bakery in Columbus, Ohio, but I live in North Carolina and it's not reasonable to make them mail me granola bars all the time. I would like to try making them myself at home instead. [more inside]

Every day I make a cup of instant oatmeal at the office. This is the ideal breakfast setup for me - quick, easy, cheap, low-calorie, fairly non-perishable food that I can store in my desk drawer - except I'm not sure it's all that healthy. Is there a nutrient-rich alternative to this? [more inside]
So I've decided that I need to make my own damn cereal. I DO NOT WANT HOT CEREAL. I want to know how I can make my own COLD cereal, which can be used as the base for milk and blueberries. [more inside]
I'd really like to go out to breakfast on Christmas morning, without having to venture downtown or Capitol Hill. Looking for a place in Ballard, Greenwood, Phinney Ridge, Broadview, even Shoreline. Anyone know a place that would be open, or a place that has been open in prior years that I can call to check? Thanks! (Prefer a regular breakfast joint vs a fancy set-menu brunch.)

Over the last couple weeks, my 6-year-old daughter has threatened on several occasions not to eat breakfast. She isn't saying that she's not hungry. Rather, she tries to get us to change some parental decision by saying she won't eat breakfast unless we give in and let her watch her show (or whatever it is.) I don't want her thinking that restricting her food intake is a way to get ahead. Can you provide some advice? [more inside]
What is your favorite yummy thing to make for breakfast in bed? I have eggs, bread for toast, a good amount of spices, and most other options. I need recipes, but nothing involving raw food or rare ingredients.

I thought about switching up my breakfast routine this week and decided to hard boil some eggs and eat some fish with it. At the store, I bought a package of "smoked, salted herring". After breakfast this morning, I realized they are not really edible as-is. What do I do with them? [more inside]
I've been stuck in a multigrain Cheerios + sweetened soy milk + scrambled egg rut for wayyy too long. I'd like to eat healthier, filling breakfasts with whole grains, and learn to like savory foods for breakfast as well. Details inside! [more inside]

I have about 15-20 minutes to eat breakfast every morning, and when I walk into the kitchen I often have no idea what to eat. This is because I'm really sensitive to sugary things in the morning and the thought of eating cereal / toast with jam or pb or honey / pancakes / crumpets / pikelets / muffins / whatever makes me queasy. So I really crave savoury things! But I don't know many savoury breakfast foods, and often I don't have enough time to make them e.g. bacon and eggs. And there are only so many times a week I can eat toast without wanting to cease existing. If you have any great recipes for savoury breakfast foods that can be prepared and eaten quickly, or that can be prepared the night before and then be thrown together quickly, I'd love to hear them! Bonus points for hot foods. Caveat: I don't like eggs just by themselves. [more inside]

We're going to be in Monterey, CA, this afternoon, and staying overnight. Tonight is our fourth wedding anniversary - where should we go for some nice but not crazy expensive seafood tonight? And any recommendations for breakfast places? Thanks!
Due to some changes in my life, I need to start getting up earlier in the morning. Problem is, I am a lazybones and I LOVE to sleep. In fact, I normally WAKE UP and start the day at 8 AM, and soon I will need to report to work at that time. I need to go to work looking very polished and feeling great. This means I need to start showering in the morning and eating breakfast before I go into work. This is going to mean a change in the way I deal with mornings. Please help me make this change as painless as possible. [more inside]

Basically, that's it. Sometimes I don't have time to eat breakfast, so I drink some 10% cream to tide me over. It's got some fat and protein making it relatively filling, and way less sugar than meal replacement drinks or fruit smoothies or juice. But when people see me do it, they freak out about how unhealthy it is. Is it really? [more inside]
Wanted: breakfast ideas that can be entirely prepped the night before, and eaten in the car on the way to work. Go! [more inside]
I foolishly committed to having my parents over for Christmas breakfast, the day after we are hosting 10 people in our tiny apartment for Christmas Eve. I'd like to make a baked French toast where I can whip it up the night before, leave it in the fridge overnight, and just pop it in the oven in the morning. I figure that plus bacon plus fruit and we're done. But I've never made baked French toast! Please point me toward your favorite recipes and share any tips you might have. Thanks!

I've recently cut wheat and dairy products out of my diet, and need some creative ideas/recipes for both breakfast and lunch. Vegetarian and meat/fish-containing suggestions are equally welcome. The higher-protein, the better. Easy recipes please since my cooking-fu is minimal. Since I eat lunch at work a couple of days a week, I want something easily portable (by bike) and ideally not requiring reheating (there's a microwave at work, but it's a bit inconvenient for me to use). Breakfast has no such constraints since I eat it at home (I usually eat scrambled eggs for breakfast, but this is getting old). Bonus points for recipes containing tahini, since I was recently given some excellent organic tahini but the usual method of using it as a dip with bread is obviously out.
I'm looking for some delicious, filling vegan, gluten-free breakfasts and lunches that are relatively low-starch and don't use too many fake meats. [more inside]
