A favorite that can also be used on a breakfast buffet is Grilled Grapefruit - an old stand-by for something sweet and delicious. It's also a great snack when you'd like something healthy - just limit the amount of sugar.

Another one of my favorites is an "Apfelpfannkuchen" or apple pancake that you make in the oven. It's easy to make for a large group and I often make it when the grandkids stay overnight. It looks so pretty, all puffed up, when it's served right from the oven.

As a special request from one of my boys, I've included easy German Potato Pancakes. Even though these pancakes are usually used for breakfasts, I often made them for supper. Served with sugar and applesauce, these are always a treat!

Granola is my husband's favorite. He has it for breakfast as well as throughout the day as a snack. I find it super easy to make lots and every time I make it, it's slightly different.

I add different things in differing amounts. Sometimes I go all out with lots and lots of nuts. Other times, it's all different types of dried fruits. Sometimes, it's quite plain. You choose. Just follow the same method.

Of course, there's traditional scrambled eggs served bacon. You can even try an easy-to-make oven-baked bacon, if you want to make lots at once without the mess!

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
