It’s been so rainy lately. And I’m kind of hoping that we’ve seen the last of it for awhile. My family and I are headed up to Point Reyes this weekend to Heidrun Meadery for a sparkling mead tasting. And it would be nice to enjoy the day along the coast without the rain.
Avocado toast topped with roasted tomatoes and jammy eggs. These roasted tomato jammy egg avocado toast is delicious and perfect for breakfast.
Can you tell that I’m currently obsessed with jammy eggs?
Grapefruit juice topped with sparkling champagne, crushed ice, and fresh grapefruit. These grapefruit mimosas are the perfect drinks to accompany brunch.
It’s been such a long week with six days of work, and I’m so glad that it’s finally the “weekend” for me. I’m looking forward to a day with nothing planned. Especially since the rain is back in the Bay Area. A little over a month left till summer officially starts and it’s still raining!
That said, I can’t picture a better way to start my day off than with brunch while staying in. As you already know, I’m obsessed with weekend brunch. If you don’t already know, well, now you do. Lol. And of course, brunch isn’t complete without a drink to accompany your food. My favorite? Mimosas.
Have you heard of Mr. Holme’s Bakehouse? They’re famous for their cruffins, a hybrid of croissants and muffins. People line up for it. While they’re good, I personally think it’s a little difficult to eat since it’s big and super flaky. lol. They do have amazing croissants too. Like this raspberry rose croissant. It’s sooo delicious. And isn’t it the prettiest croissant you’ve ever seen?
Mixed green tossed with bacon, jammy eggs, dried cranberries, tomatoes, walnuts, and fried shallots then drizzled with herby buttermilk ranch dressing. This jammy egg bacon salad is delicious and so satisfying.
How can you resist a salad with jammy eggs and pieces of bacon?
When it comes to salads, I love one that’s filled with different ingredients that give it color, texture, and contrasting flavors. I like salads that are both sweet and savory, soft and crunchy. And filled with colors. This jammy egg bacon salad has all of that.
Classic ranch dressing made with buttermilk, mayo, and fresh chopped herbs. This herby buttermilk ranch dressing is simple to make and perfect on your favorite salad.
This past weekend has been relatively busy. Low key, but busy. I think with all the events that I’ve had on my schedule the last two months, it was just nice to have a weekend that didn’t include a lot of plans. Lazy days, delicious food, good reads, and writing blog posts. It’s my kind of weekend. Lol. What did you do this past weekend?
Custardy french toast stuffed with sliced bananas and peanut butter. Garnished with strawberries and dusted with powdered sugar, this peanut butter banana french toast is perfect for weekend brunch.
Happy Mother’s Day!
To all the moms out there, thank you for all that you do. You are absolutely amazing. I hope that you get to celebrate you today.
There’s a donut place near the Palace of Fine Arts that I’ve heard of and have been wanting to try for a long while. Unfortunately, I never had the time to wander out there just to buy a donut. But since I was out there already, I had to indulge.
Dynamo Donuts, if you’re ever in the area, have some unique flavors. Flavors that you don’t often find. This particular donut is passion fruit with milk chocolate.
Rich creamy quiche filled with spinach and bacon in every bite. This spinach bacon quiche is easy to make, delicious, and great as leftovers.
Can we talk about brunch for a sec?
I don’t know what it is about brunch that I am so in love with. Maybe it’s because most of the time, brunch is reserved for weekends. It’s when you can sit down with family and friends and enjoy a meal leisurely. Maybe it’s because brunch is often served with mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
Whatever it is, brunch has almost always been my favorite meal of the day. One that I don’t get to enjoy often enough. And maybe that’s why I love it as much as I do.
So of course, whenever there’s an excuse to have brunch, I totally take it.
Buttery scones filled with sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, and mozzarella cheese then topped with parmesan. These savory sun-dried tomato pesto scones are delicious and perfect for sharing.
Happy Sunday! And Cinco de Mayo if you celebrate.
I have absolutely no plans today, and I have never been so excited for it. After weeks of plans and events, I’m just glad to finally have a relatively low key weekend. What do you have planned for the rest of this weekend?
