In today’s Seasonal Pantry, which you can read here, I talk about breakfast, a meal I often find challenging, not because of its preparation but because I’m rarely hungry early in the day. In that column, I promise to post recipes to some of my favorite breakfast dishes, delicious any time of day or night, and so here they are.

I do find breakfast particularly welcome and enjoyable on rainy days like this one and plan to indulge soon. Freshly-made chai is steeping.
