Recipe Story

Brunch is my favorite meal of the day. It doesn’t happen often because it’s busy during the week, but on Saturday’s and Sunday’s I love waking up slowly, staying in my pajamas and making a delicious brunch. This mixture of breakfast and lunch leaves the cooking part up to your imagination depending what you’re craving. Are you looking for a variety of pasta or fruit or green salad? An egg salad on a bagel? Blueberry pancakes with turkey bacon? The examples could go on and on, but the point here is brunch allows creativity, flexibility and variety. So on this particular Saturday morning, with left over challah in the kitchen and all the right ingredients for french toast — I sprung into action!
