Welcome, friends!

I hope you enjoy your visit here. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends there started asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered up my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up here at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!

Let’s Do Brunch!

One of my favorite meals to eat out is brunch. I can’t really offer a precise definition of this hybrid term, other than “in-between” – as the word itself is a cross between breakfast and lunch, so is the meal itself: either the cuisine, or the time of day, or both. Here, I present some of my favorite brunches from the past few years. Enjoy!

Breakfast special from Southern Traditions

 

The very best brunch I’ve ever eaten, I unfortunately did not get a good photo of. But it was Pickett’s Trout Benedict over griddle cakes with champagne Hollandaise and a side of shaved Brussel sprouts, from 212 Market on Valentine’s Day in 2015.
