Brittlebush Brunch

by kara on March 8, 2012

We went to Vail, CO last week for a much needed get-away celebration with friends.  Friends came from ND, MN, NY, and CO.   We woke up to Brittlebush Brunch on the first morning and quickly learned that Molly (who lives in Brooklyn, NY) is one awesome cook in the kitchen.  I’ve never had an egg dish quite like this.  I took one […]

Sausage Egg Bake

Whenever Courtland and I host brunch for company, we seem to make egg bakes. There are so many different ways to bake them. They are easy and can be prepared ahead of time. You are certain to impress your guests ifyou serve one with pastries/bagels, fruit, coffee and mimosas. My sister-in-law was in town last […]
