Wait… It’s not Sunday?!

You can probably tell by now that french toast is one of my favorite things to have when I go out for brunch.

This pic is of the very berry creme-brulee french toast at the Mack Avenue Grille. It’s delicious! The perfect bite gives you savory french toast, a sweetness from the berries (strawberries, rasberries and blueberries) and the creme-brulee filling. But get this: I have NEVER had this dish for brunch. I’ve eaten it during the weekdays with my co-workers, but somehow this dish always me feel as if it’s Sunday and it’s time for brunch.

Do you have a favorite food that you MUST have when you eat brunch?!

DELICIOUSNESS on a plate!!!

Odd Day for Brunch?

Maybe I’m super late in finding out that one of my favorite restaurants serves brunch not only on Sundays, but Saturdays too!!

While I am excited about this news, it also seems a bit strange bravo-restaurant-greenwood-indiana[1]since I rarely think of brunch being appropriate for a Saturday.

Nevertheless, the restaurant Bravo offers its full brunch menu on Saturdays now which means that I can order my stuffed French toast and a refreshing peach Bellini on a Saturday. Umm… #Winning! imagesStuffed-Berry-French-Toast63EDstuffed-french-toast[1]

What do you think? Is brunch meant JUST for Sundays? Just for the weekend? Or any day?

Shooties and Foodies

I’m happy to say that two weeks in a row this blog has taken on its official meaning- that of me having brunch and wearing pumps.

Real Life Scenario #1- It’s rare that my mom and I go out to eat (it’s more of a pastime that my dad and I share), but when it does happen it’s always a good time. Last Sunday, mom and I ended up at brunch with other friends and had a nice booth to ourselves. My mom, the self-proclaimed “Fashionista” was flawless from “H2T” (head to toe), but for the sake of this blog I’ll only focus on the shoes.

Ironically, both of us wore pumps that are  “shooties”

Shooties (Noun) 

1. An fashion item commonly worn on the foot that has combined characteristics of a shoe and an ankle boot.

Sidenote- (I’m not a fan of the word “shooties” but this is how they are recognized in the world of fashion)

Here’s a pic of the ones my mom and I wore:

In/Not In France? Make French Toast (rollups)

Pinterest is a great site to gather ideas-especially for food.

One of the breakfast ideas I tried and enjoyed were the French Toast Rollups. Dee.lish.cious. It’s a cute spin

Add some warm syrup to the roll ups and you are good to go!

on a classic favorite. In my opinion, it’s a way to indulge, but not feel bad about your decision TO indulge, ya know? Also, for those with young ones at home, or those that may not get in the kitchen often, this is a great dish to make because of its simplicity and presentation.

Give French Toast Roll-ups a try for your next breakfast, brunch, or snack!

Here's the process for making these delicious roll ups.

Why the Love for Food?

Everyone has a reason behind why they enjoy food, why they like to cook, stories in the kitchen and dinner table, etc. Since part of this blog is dedicated to food, I would be remise if I didn’t mention one of my favorite cooks on Youtube-Laura Vitale. She has an online cooking show titled Laura in the Kitchen, and this Saturday, September 27th her new television show Simply Laura airs on the Cooking Channel.

Since I began watching Laura in the Kitchen almost two years ago, I’ve gotten a different take on food and cooking. Nowadays, being in the kitchen and making meals for others doesn’t seem like much of a challenge. Her recipes are easy to follow and pleasing to the palette!

Here’s a look at one of her cooking videos from Youtube (a recipe that I’m planning to make since apples are in THE food to cook with since it’s Fall)  and be sure to check out Simply Laura this Saturday!

 

Happy Cooking!

 

“Food Rut” Be Gone!

Having breakfast on a Sunday is the best!!

In my family, Sunday brunch recipes vary. We do eat out, occassionally, but for the most part we choose to cook at home.

For awhile, we were in sort of a “food rut.” Have you ever been there before? It’s like, you enjoy eating Sunday brunch, but you find yourself cooking the same thing over and over and over again? Food and eating should be satisfying, not just something we do because it’s necessary to survive.

Last year for Black Friday I wanted a images-3waffle iron (I know I’m late ya’ll, don’t judge me). Although I’ve never been much of a waffle eater, I felt it would add variety to our breakfast.  And it certainly has! My dad and I even try to make scrambled eggs more often now (he has perfected his scrambled egg).

What’s your favorite meal for Sunday brunch? Do you like to eat out/cook at home? Share them with me, and I can even try to cook them!

I can’t wait to share more of my favorites!
