I am always looking for new and decadent recipes to serve my guest. We serve a multi-course gourmet breakfast and Tom and I split the cooking duties. He focuses on the main entree and I focus on the appetizer. I love serving fruit dishes for our first course. I think it really opens up the palate for Tom’s main course.
Many of our guests ask for our recipes and so I decided that I will start to post some of our fan favorites for everyone to try. Here is the first one. Our guests just rave about this one. You can always tell if people really like it or if they are just being polite by the amount of food that comes back to the kitchen. We never have any leftovers with this one.
Grand Oranges and Strawberries

Cook Time 5 Min
Chill Time 8 hrs
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 1/2 cups sparkling white grape juice (chilled)
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
10 to 12 large navel oranges

Melt marmalade in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly; remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
Stir together marmalade, white grape juice, and grand marnier in a large serving dish or bowl until blended. Add orange sections, and gently stir. Cover and chill for 8 hours.
Add strawberries to the oranges in the bowl, and gently toss to coat. Serve in parfait bowls with a mint sprig for a garnish.
