    • Monkey Bread Rolls

      Your guests will find this sticky sweet bread irresistible, and pulling apart the sugar-coated layers is half the fun. Store-bought dough makes preparation a cinch. In the next three slides, we'll show you all our secrets to mastering this all-American favorite.

    • Step 1: Divide the Dough

      Let the store-bought cinnamon-roll dough thaw overnight in your fridge. Use kitchen scissors to cut each roll into four pieces. The next slide shows how to create the Monkey Bread Rolls' signature glaze.

    • Step 2: Creating a Glaze

      After quartering each roll in Step 1 (previous slide), dip the pieces in butter and roll them in sugar. Then, place two dough pieces in each muffin cup on top of the chopped pecans. The next slide shows the details of the Monkey Bread Rolls' creamy, cool topping.

    • Step 3: Drizzle Sweet Topping

      Once you have topped the dough in Step 2 (previous slide), use a kitchen spoon to drizzle the ice cream topping and syrup mixture evenly over the dough.

    • Buttermilk Coffee Cake

      Treat your friends -- and yourself -- to a crumbly, cinnamon-scented coffee cake. As an added bonus, leftovers work great for a quick snack or last-minute dessert. Just freeze remaining slices in plastic wrap, place in a freezer-proof bag, and freeze for up to a month.

    • Eggs Benedict

      The next four slides lead you through the basics of Eggs Benedict. The secret of this no-fuss Eggs Benedict recipe is a rich, silky Mock Hollandaise sauce that's just as delicious as the real thing. The next four slides take you through the simple basics.

    • Step 1: Top with Bacon

      After toasting the muffins under the broiler, top each half with a slice of Canadian-style bacon. The next slide shows you our tricks for adding poached eggs to your Eggs Benedict recipe.

    • Step 2: Add a Poached Egg

      After topping your toasted muffins with bacon, use a slotted spoon to remove an egg from the warm water. Set the spoon and egg briefly on a paper towel to drain. Place an egg on each bacon-topped muffin half. The next slide shows our method for adding sauce to the Eggs Benedict.

      Step 3: Drizzle with Hollandaise Sauce

      After adding the bacon and egg to your English muffins, spoon the warm Mock Hollandaise Sauce over the top of each egg. Look to our Eggs Benedict recipe for all the details you need to prepare a batch of these tasty breakfast sandwiches for your next brunch.

      Roasted Asparagus

      Few veggies complement eggs better than asparagus. And it's easy to roast this vitamin-rich treat and get knock-out results. The next two slides will show you the best way to do it.

    • 13 of 21

      Roasting Made Easy

      Roast asparagus, uncovered, in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until crisp-tender, lightly tossing twice during the roasting. Kitchen tongs make it easy to grab a bunch of asparagus spears.

    • 14 of 21

      Quick Cook

      Save time by simmering spears on the stovetop instead of roasting them in the oven. Lay the asparagus in a skillet and top with an inch of water. Lightly salt the water and bring it to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the spears are crisp-tender.
