Kitchen Challenge 1: Breakfast Bonanza

I had a stellar breakfast recently. It seems some of my most favorite breakfasts are eaten out. This particular favorite was at Yolk on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

I had Fruit and Nut Pancakes.

Brad had Banana Nut Bread French Toast. (And, yes. That's a side of peanut butter instead of syrup. YUM!)

There was plenty of plate trading going on.

In honor of my recent eating-out breakfast triumph, I'd like to pose a challenge to you, our readers. (We have at least a few readers out there, right?)

Cook something new for breakfast.

Sometime between now and October 11 (Sunday). . .

Option 1: Blog about it
Cook a new breakfast item. Take a picture of the breakfast creation. Create a post on your own blog that includes the recipe and the picture. Add a comment on this post linking us back to your creation.

Option 2: Email us about it
Cook something new for breakfast. Take a picture of it. Email the picture and the recipe to CookEatRepeatChallenge@gmail.com

I'll randomly draw a name from those who participate and send some kitchen-related mail love to a lucky reader.

And, we'll all learn lots of great new breakfast recipes.


  1. Yum! I'm on it. Probably not for another week or two tough.

  2. I'm all for these kinds of challenges! I'll be keeping my eye out for a recipe to try.

  3. Game on, Chickie! OK...I just called you Chickie I hope you don't mind. LOL! Hmmm....off to find a recipe. Thanks for the challenge.

  4. Call me Chickie all you want, Denise.

    Can't wait to see what everyone makes.

  5. Oh boy have I got a good one! No diet or healthy craze about it though! I'll email you the recipe and maybe a picture.....

  6. Darn it! I made my new breakfast today and totally forgot to take a picture. What was I thinking? Guess I need to make it again or make something else.

  7. Here's my domestic attempt: http://creativemayhembyme.blogspot.com/2009/10/excusesexcuses.html

  8. Looks delish, Denise!
    Thanks for playing along.
