Fancy a boozy breakfast? I can recommend this bonkers recipe.
I do so love a recipe with a weird title and Marsha is in Murder, She Wrote so this was a MUST for the forthcoming Murder, She Cooked book.
I also love a recipe that is effectively a menu too. Everything on the above plate was proposed by Marsha. I’m not sure whether she would have served this for breakfast or brunch (she suggests having blueberry muffins and coffee with this) or lunch or dinner (Liebfraumilch might be a bit much earlier in the day). But whenever you serve it, serve it with love!
How much does Gayle Hunnicutt look like Video Games era Lana del Rey by the way?
The Ham With Love was weird, but good. The bananas with Cointreau really took me back to something my mum used to make when I was a kid, bananas fried in butter with rum (I think). I’ll ask her if she remembers this when I go home at Christmas. I’m also going to find out if my sister Marsha was named after this Marsha.
This dish will be going into the Murder, She Cooked book for sure. I’m stepping up efforts to get everything tested ASAP, so expect more weird and wonderful things on the blog in the near future. If you fancy helping out with recipe testing, everyone is welcome. Here’s the list of current “most wanted” for testing.

If there is a ‘breakfast’ wine Liebfraumilch is probably it . But there’s probably a fine breakfast in there somewhere, hold the pineapple and bring me the ham with the blueberry muffins, honey, Cointreau – I love after all that the Cointreau is optional ! – and coffee. This is either breakfast for those in the theatre who don’t arise until 4 pm or she was on her way to creating a new hybrid meal -‘Breklunchendinner’ The one stop meal for all occasions. Genius. … And please tell me what Dina Merrill’s Homard Au Whisky is !!!! I have to know !
Haha – you are right, it’s Breklunchendinner – I love it! Homard au Whisky is lobster flambeed in whisky. I can see that this one and the caviar pie one are going to have to be tested by yours truly! It’s a hard life! Jxx
I’m sorry it’s taking me longer than usual to get around to testing the chicken recipe, I’m just kind of swamped with end-of-year stuff at the moment!
The first couple of times I looked at the photo of this ham dish I couldn’t figure out where the bananas were because I thought the bananas were some kind of strangely pale sausage – I also didn’t understand why the sausage wasn’t mentioned….
Hiya VT – I know exactly what you mean about end-of-year stuff – it’s a whirlwind isn’t it. No mad rush, honestly – January sometime would be absolutely fine! Strangely pale sausages! I wouldn’t put it past some of these movie stars to have a dish that involves strangely pale sausages! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season – Jenny xxx
