Aka the “Travis”. You have heard of the Luther. Meet it's breakfast counterpart, the Travis. Sausage, egg and cheese squeezed between a Krispy Kreme doughnut. This is real. Real delicious. I was nervous about how people would like it, but it was well received! These went fast, as well as some of my other favorite brunch items.
Bacon egg toast cups.
And Mama D's famous challah French toast.
I love hosting brunches, complete with a build your own MIEMOsa bar!
Breakfast on weekends are a pretty big deal at my house. We are so busy during the week that we always skip out on the most important meal of the day. But not on Saturdays and Sundays! As you may remember, I made macadamia nut pancakes
This time lets use peanut butter! This recipe comes from Joy the Baker
and I pretty much did exactly what she said so if you want instructions, click away
Bacon and peanut butter sounds weird…but it worked well together, especially topped with banana. There is just enough peanut butter to give you a hint of nutty sweetness, but not enough to overpower your palate. Don’t just trust me for it, make it yourself!
I think my favorite meal of the day in Hawaii is ALWAYS breakfast. Hawaiians know how to start the day. I love this place. Aloha Mixed Plate is right next to The Old Royal Lahaina Luau, and its outdoor seating, good service, good food. We went there twice that week. I would have all my breakfasts there if I could! The view of the ocean and a nice cold glass of POG juice and I’m a happy camper for the rest of the day.
Another fabulous weekend with one of my beautiful lady friends. (Does that line make me sound like an American Pimp?) Being in the DC area, we get our choice of beaches all within 5 hours, which I think is a tolerable road trip time frame. With that in mind I packed my bag (poorly) and headed the SUPPOSEDLY less than 3 hour trip down to Virginia Beach. Continue reading
Everyone loves crepes. They are so versatile, sweet, savory you could pretty much do anything to it and it’s yummy. Well, I decided I was going to learn how to do it. And you know what? It’s a lot easier than expected. No fancy equipment. I managed to get the job done with a skillet and a ladle!
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Whisk the eggs and milk together, then add the rest of the ingredients, set aside for 30 minutes. Stir it again with a ladle right before you cook it. In a non stick pan that you could make omelets in, spray some Pam, and heat it to medium. Ladle some batter into the pan and use the bottom of the ladle to spread in a circular motion to get that perfect shape. Picture yourself spreading tomato sauce on pizza dough. That’s the best way I can describe it because since this cooks fairly quickly, I couldn’t take pictures and cook at the same time!
Once it browns, flip and do the other side. Remove from heat, fill it and top it with what you want and you are good to go! I chose to fill mine with Nutella and topped it with confectioners sugar
