Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Italian Breakfast Pasta

Italian Breakfast Pasta Recipe

Who doesn’t love a fancy brunch? This dish is one of my favorites. OK, I say that about a lot of my dishes…so, I guess I have a lot of favorites…but this one ranks pretty high on the list. I love to serve this to overnight guests because it is always so unexpected.

The rich, flavorful yolk creates the perfect sauce for the fettuccini, and the spinach, pancetta and roasted peppers are the perfect complement to the dish. This is the ultimate comfort food brunch, so I highly recommend you host one and serve this dish. You and your guests will definitely not be disappointed. Continue Reading

Top Country Wedding Songs

It is officially spring, which means it is also wedding season.

We love weddings at Great American Country, especially rustic, country-themed soirées. We also love music, so if you and your honey are planning your special day, here are a few of our choices for Top Wedding Songs to accompany the ceremony and reception.
Top Country Wedding Songs

Play up the fairy tale element by playing Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” as guests arrive for the church or other ceremony. Looking for something more sentimental? Kip Moore’s “Hey Pretty Girl” will tug on the heartstrings of your family and friends, or keep things lively with Trisha Yearwood’s “She’s In Love With The Boy.”

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Bananas Foster Pancakes

Krystal Keith's Bananas Foster Pancakes

Photo courtesy of Krystal Keith.

This is one of my favorite indulgent breakfasts. It combines one of my favorite breakfast foods, pancakes, with one of my all-time favorite desserts, Bananas Foster. If you haven’t ordered Bananas Foster at a restaurant, go ahead and put it on your foodie bucket list because it is a must! Bananas sautéed in brown sugar, butter and rum. They light the mixture on fire, which is always fun, and serve it over vanilla ice cream. Sounds like the perfect topping for pancakes, too, huh? I also thought so.
