Quick-to-prepare and easily made in advance, deli food is perfect for dining anytime— for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Choose from such breakfast treats as homemade bagels and bear claws or classic Cheese Blintzes.

A light dinner might include a delicate Italian Frittata, a Fresh Tuna Salad Nicoise, and a slice of focaccia. For dessert, try a lovely Lemon Meringue Tartlet or decadent Tiramisu in Small Chocolate Bowls.
