Step it up for anniversaries and other special occasions.

For Valentine's Day or anniversaries, it's time to up the ante on breakfast in bed. You can have pancakes and eggs any old day, so why not try your hand at slightly more refined foods? Cooking a five-star breakfast requires more skill than pouring a bowl of cereal, but poaching eggs and whipping hollandaise sauce sound more intimidating than they really are. Don't forget to spice up the presentation with a single rose, linen napkin or other touch of class.

Suggested Menu:

  • Entrée: Eggs Benedict or crêpes Suzette
  • Side Dishes: Scones and yogurt parfait
  • Beverages: Champagne mimosas or white sangria

For a Special Touch: Take the breakfast ingredients up a notch. Instead of serving regular butter with the scones, put it in a bowl with honey and dash of sugar and whip with an electric mixer. For the parfait, get creative with fresh fruits, such as pear, pomegranate and pineapple.
