Recipe News: Best B&B breakfasts

"Certain occasions call for special breakfasts. So we asked two Wichita couples who are in the business of providing just that for some of their favorite recipes.

Jerry and Suzanne Kerr opened College Hill Bed and Breakfast at 3308 Country Club Place two years ago. Since then, Jerry has prepared most of the breakfasts for their guests.

"It's intimate, warm comfort food," he says of dishes such as the accompanying recipe for blintzes.

Not far away, Judy and Bill Hess have been running the Inn at the Park for nearly nine years. They call the converted three-story mansion at 3751 E. Douglas a "European-style hotel" rather than a bed-and-breakfast, but cook Lisa DuBray still puts a big emphasis on the day's first meal.

All three of these dishes can be prepared the night before, then finished in the morning. Accompany them with good tea or coffee, fruit and juices, bacon or sausage and sweet breads for a delicious start to the day."

Includes recipes for:


  • INN AT THE PARK FRITTATA

  • INN AT THE PARK CREME BRULEE FRENCH TOAST

  • COLLEGE HILL BED AND BREAKFAST BLINTZES

Recipe News: Pop up these winning recipes

"No golden statue awards for this obvious suggestion: Get plenty of buttered popcorn ready for Oscar-watching time. But there will be rewards for preparing homemade versions that will taste good whether you pick the screen winners or not.

You can try out recipes, then pick the one you like best for after-party occasions, too, which you can decide to hold whenever — for months and months to come, until next year’s Oscars if you want.

The following recipes, varied to satisfy both sweet-tooth types and salt lovers, are simple to make, with butter and seasonings. They can be ready in just a few minutes, and they’ll fill the kitchen with the classic ah-roma of the cinema.

The recipe developers point out that they prefer the texture of freshly popped popcorn, but these flavorful butters will brighten even plain popcorn from a bag."

Includes recipes for:


  • Cinema Sage Butter Popcorn

  • California Almond Butter Popcorn

  • Oscar’s Orange Butter Popcorn

Recipe News: Fastlane: Recipes for busy cooks

"Leeks are not used much in American cooking, though the French rely on them.

Directions for many French recipes tell you to wash leeks "very carefully" as they contain lots of grit that hides between their multiple layers.

Leeks from American produce sections don't require all that care. Sure, you still want to slice them vertically and rinse them to remove any grit. But grit is rare.

Fast Lane list: Chicken breast halves, leeks, garlic, chicken broth, tarragon, mustard, sour cream, sweet potatoes."

  • Chicken Breast Tarragon

Recipe News: New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

"Despite the name, it has nothing to do with a barbecue pit or barbecue sauce. The main ingredients are jumbo Louisiana shrimp, butter and finely ground black pepper.

The recipe (found below) uses peeled shrimp, but it is important to start with fresh head-on shrimp, so that you can make a nice stock with the heads and shells."

Recipe News: Join the Mardi Gras fun with Cajun recipes

"ardi Gras is an authentic New Orleans celebration full of food, fun and pageantry, and this year the character and spirit of the city are stronger than ever. Whether you're heading to the Big Easy to welcome back Mardi Gras in person or staying at home, these three recipes are all you need to get the party started.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp and Sausage Skewers have the look, taste and feel of Mardi Gras. The simple preparation makes it ideal for a celebration in your own home as well. The zest of the andouille sausage and shrimp, grilled with original Tabasco pepper sauce, are complemented with a scallion swirl running the length of the skewer, adding a festive flair to an already scrumptious treat. Served with a Creole Mustard Dipping Sauce, this French Quarter favorite will be the hit of your block too.

Nothing screams New Orleans quite like red beans and rice, and this easy recipe, bursting with flavor, continues that tradition. Drawing on ingredients like bacon, onion, garlic and pepper sauce, Bourbon Street Rice and Beans is perfect on its own or served along side other festive favorites."
