An Old Fashioned Valentine's Day Breakfast

Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear: it is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited where its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

I couldn't let Valentine's Day week go by without an article, but for some reason I had writer's block until I started thinking about my husband, and the breakfasts he's made me over the years. I heard talk around our house of stuffed French toast this year, but it's a secret so that might be a rumor. As long as breakfast includes his homemade fruit syrup I'm good:)

I came up with a lovely breakfast menu using vintage recipes from my cookbook collection and added a few twists of my own.  Whether it's breakfast, or brunch, or even breakfast for dinner I think you'll enjoy the recipes and tips here:
