When Erin was about 3 years old, she declared, "Turkey is my favorite kind of chicken."
I have subscribed to her logic ever since.
Hence, breakfast is my favorite kind of dinner.
We filmed another cooking show this week, with a breakfast theme. Or breakfast for dinner. Or, as my friend (a.k.a. Superwoman) Maureen's daughter calls it, "Brinner."
Really, really, really good. Really.
If you're into coffeecake with a lot of crispy, crunchy topping, this is the one for you.

Here's the view from the opposite end of the table. We made lots of fruity drinks. Dinner drinks!
- 1 shot vodka
- 4 oz. cranberry juice
- 1 oz. orange juice
Fill an 8-oz glass with ice. Add ingredients. Stir. Garnish with an orange slice, lime wedge and maraschino cherry.
- Peach Schnapps
- Orange Juice
Fill an 8-oz glass with ice cubes. Add a generous shot of Peach Schnapps. Fill with orange juice. Stir. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.
- 1 shot Tequila
- 3 oz. Orange Juice
- 1 tablespoon grenadine
Fill an 8-oz glass with ice cubes. Add tequila, then orange juice. Slowly pour grenadine along the side of the glass. Do not stir! The grenadine should settle in the bottom of the glass. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.
(I used a martini glass because I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to get the grenadine along the side of the glass. I figured that the flared edge of the martini glass would keep me from messing up!)
