Chef Armand Brunch creations featured in WALL STREET JOURNAL
"The home-baked bread basket is scrumptious, with anything from raisin bread to carrot cake. The $16.95 prix-fixe brunch that includes a drink will win you over. Dishes offer a twist on some classics. Brabant serves its Eggs Flemish Country Benedictus with brioche bread, smoked duck, poached eggs and Gruyere Mornay sauce. The Croque Monsieur Brabant has smoked duck instead of ham. Also on the menu: five types of omelets."

Football time snacks

Football season is about more than just the game. Whether you're on the couch with a few buddies or in the stands with a bunch of die-hard fans, every game requires traditional tailgating munchies. Buffalo Wings reign as one of the most popular game day eats with more than one billion wings consumed during Super Bowl weekend alone! The secret to creating your favorite restaurant-style wings at home is FRANK'S® REDHOT® Cayenne Pepper Sauce, the secret ingredient used in the original Buffalo Wing sauce and an all time favorite since its debut in 1964.

Frank's RedHot also delivers fun and excitement to a variety of foods, way beyond wings. Ethel Herman, well known for her popular radio spots touting the benefits of RedHot, says, I put that sauce on everything! At my game day gatherings there's a bottle on every table. I especially enjoy splashing my favorite elixir on everyday foods like pizza, fries, tacos, popcorn, shrimp and foot-long subs. Try some of these recipes that will be sure to score big with your friends and family:
