Easy to make and warm and comforting, this creamy breakfast can be prepped the night before. Both the eggs and cream sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated. Just chop and add the eggs and spinach when re-heating. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
