Eggs Benewitch at My Kitchen Witch

Maybe it was magic or just a lot of hard work, but after Superstorm Sandy shut it down, My Kitchen Witch is flying again.

Karen Jarmer is the Kitchen Witch - a nickname for her inventiveness when she used to cater for TV and movies in New York.

She opened her cafe 8 years ago when she was ready to return home to the shore at Monmouth Beach, New Jersey to serve up home cooking.

Despite the biscuits, pancakes and French toast, donuts and larger than life cupcakes, Karen is conscientious of health.

Take the Eggs Benewitch, which uses artichoke spread in lieu of the hollandaise sauce.
