Everyone Loves Brunch

posted in: Books | 0


Ok – little known fact about me – I really love brunch food.  Savory, sweet, eggs, bacon, really good bread, fruits, syrup.  I mean – what’s not to love?  And I love sipping warm drinks with ones you love.  I love the relationships that come with brunch!

But, seriously – who wants to get up for all that good stuff at 6am and cook it to eat it that early?  I think that is why brunch is spectacular.  You can have all the food you love – just at a normal hour.

And I have two fave male chefs on Food Network: Bobby and Tyler.  And this blog post is all about Bobby’s new book, Brunch at Bobby’s – which I got from Blogging for Books.

I could make every seriously make every single recipe – and I so want to.  So, who is the first person coming over?  The pictures are great, the recipes are unique (and some normal favorites with a Bobby spin).

So, here are some ones that are right at the top of the list:

Chilis Rellenos

Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Gruyere Strata

Gingerbread Pumpkin Waffles (gotta make these quick before we get to spring)

Citrus Blueberry Salad

Cast Iron Potatoes

And many more…need more opportunities to cook brunch!

Cookbook Review: Sugar & Spice

posted in: Books | 0

I don’t think I’ve ever had and loved this type of cookbook – and I know now what I’ve been missing.

Cardamom.  Pepper.  Cinnamon.  Cloves. Nutmeg.  Etc.

All bound together in a photo-medium (only downfall, I love photos and the ones in it are amazing), story and explanation rich and colorful (a huge bonus), recipe infused cloth that is begging me to get a mortar and pestle.  I don’t have one but if I were to have one I would want this one or maybe this one.

Like I said, the photos are gorgeous, I just wish there were more.  I love the voice of this cookbook.  The recipes would stretch me out of my comfort zone in what I usually cook – but it makes me want to.

I’m thankful for Blogging for Books for sending this to me for the review, and to Samantha Seneviratne for writing it.

And just possibly – I might be making the Coffee and Cardamom Shortbread for this wknd.  Why not?
