The secret to brunch is to make recipes that are hearty enough so they substitute for lunch, but light enough so they're fun and easy to eat for your first meal of the day. Put out big pitchers of orange juice and milk, and brew coffee for those who like it. Some champagne is certainly in order too! Set a beautiful table, light some candles, and sit down to a wonderful meal with family and friends.

- Melon and Avocado Cocktail
This unusual combination of fruits (yes, avocado is a fruit) is so delicious and refreshing. It's the perfect way to start your brunch.
- Swiss Eggs
Season eggs with mustard and cheese and bake them with cream for an excellent main dish brunch recipe. You can put this dish together in about 10 minutes. To serve more than six people, make another batch rather than doubling the recipe.

Scrambled eggs are always welcome. This recipe is easy and quick, with cream adding delicious flavor and richness.
- Marinated Fruit Salad
This recipe doesn't need to be marinated long for best flavor; just a few minutes is all it takes! Use the fruits you have on hand.

These muffins are very flavorful, with cranberries and white chocolate. They're perfect for a festive holiday brunch.
- Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
Oatmeal adds interest to these muffins and a little bit of texture, and chocolate is always a good idea!
