Cranberry sauce arrives at Thanksgiving, and these tart berries don't give us a break until after the holidays. This amazing recipe, found here, is responsible for that glazed look in my eyes. Orange glazed, that is.
Gingerbread pancakes contain all the Christmas-y goodness you'd expect from the most important meal of the day. These are extra fluffy because they're filled with holiday spirit (at least that's what a little elf told me). Recipe here.
8. Mini Quiches with Caramelized Pears and Gorgonzola
Christmas is just about the best excuse there is to have dessert for breakfast. And making Boston cream pie "pancakes" is just about the best method I've heard to make breakfast out of one of the best desserts. I'm on board. Recipe here.

Tiny, adorable strawberry Santas and snowmen made wholly of whipped cream. If you made me this, I wouldn't need anything else for Christmas. Although...I still want that snuggie. Just, in case, you know, you are still planning to get me something...
The recipe for this french toast, found here, is a national treasure, and it should be treated as such. When it is taken out of the oven, you must bow to it and then voraciously shove it into your face. It's only right that way.
