Today, I’m sharing the second day of our trip to Colorado.
On our second day, my cousin Linda and I packed our schedule with as many things to do and places to eat as possible. We weren’t even sure if we could make it to all the places we had planned because it wasn’t all in one city.
But on our second day, we decided to get up early and have breakfast at Four Friends Kitchen, a Southern inspired breakfast/brunch place. The food was simply amazing, and now I’m seriously craving Southern inspired breakfast.
Creamy steel cut oatmeal with a hint of vanilla and maple topped with frosted blackberries and pistachio. This maple vanilla steel cut oatmeal is delicious and perfect for starting your morning.
It’s been so nice the past few days in the city. I’ve been soaking up all that sunshine and warmth as much as I can because knowing SF, the nice weather won’t last long. So while it’s warm and sunny, I’m trying to savor it.
Today, I wanted to share with you another breakfast recipe. I know. I feel like I’ve been obsessed with all things breakfast lately. Make that breakfast and frosted berries. You’ll probably see frosted berries all summer long. They’re perfect as toppings.
I absolutely love the late spring and summer season. There are so many different fruits. I especially love all the strawberries that are now available at the farmer’s market. After all the rain we had this past winter, the strawberries are seriously huge. So of course, I could resist buying a few baskets to take home with me.
Less than two weeks ago, my family and I traveled to Denver for my cousin’s graduation. Since I have never been to Denver before, I thought it would be the perfect time to explore Denver and the surrounding area. It was such a fun few days, and now I really want to go back.
I took so many pictures while in Denver so I’m splitting the trip into different days. =)
I can’t believe it’s a week since we were in Denver for my cousin’s graduation! How does time fly by so fast?
While we were in Denver, we did so much eating. In between meals, we went on tours and did a ton of tastings. One of the most fun part of our trip was going on a tour at Hammond’s Candies. There was so much candy, all of which were handmade in the factory!
Can you tell that we couldn’t resist buying the chocolate?
Thick crusty slices of bread stuffed with cookie butter then dipped in a vanilla egg mixture. This cookie butter stuffed french toast is decadent and perfect for an indulgent breakfast.
I’ve been back for two days from Denver, and I’m already feeling symptoms of vacation withdrawal. I seriously want to be back in Denver right now exploring the city and discovering new places to eat instead of working.
I feel like I need to have something else lined up, whether it’s a local trip or maybe somewhere a little further, so that I have something to look forward to. How do you deal with vacation or travel withdrawal?
Only a few more days until Mother’s Day! Have you checked out my 10 Brunch Ideas for Mother’s Day yet? If not, I think you should. Some of my favorite brunch dishes are on the list. But, just in case you need more inspiration, I think I’m going to have to add one more to that list: Cookie Butter Stuffed French Toast!
Frozen cubes of pitaya blended with frozen bananas and almond milk until smooth. This pitaya smoothie is deliciously creamy and perfect for spring and summer.
I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I just got back from vacationing in Denver, and I’m sooo not ready for everyday life to start back up yet. I’ve been so in love with Denver. The atmosphere just feels different. The air feels fresher. Maybe it’s because we were surrounded by so many parks, trees, and mountains. I don’t know exactly what it is. But I really really liked it there.
We are currently in Denver! Totally in vacay mode. If you would like to follow along my adventures, my Instagram page will be updated with travel posts. Or you can wait until I finish editing photos and post here. =)
But in the meantime, earlier this week, I discovered a brand new matcha latte on the way to work!
Omg! I can’t believe we’re already in May. Only a little more than a week until Mother’s Day! So I thought I would share with you a few brunch ideas. That way you can make plans ahead of time. These recipes are delicious and perfect for surprising your mom with a homemade breakfast.
