I ain't gonna lie. I love food.
I love to cook it, look at it, and yeah- eat it!
And I'm blessed to share this love with my family:)
Feast your eyes on our Easter brunch...
We always share the cooking responsibilities
when we get together for holidays:)
My adorable niece and I put together these easy peasy lemon curd
desserts. Just a crushed graham cracker layer on the bottom, then
layers of lemon curd and whipped creme. We added a little lemon
zest into the whipped creme for extra yumminess. Topped it with a
thin lemon cookie and a quartered piece of kiwi:)
It just isn't a brunch without scrambled eggs!!
My favorite roasted asparagus makes the perfect pairing for those lovely
Just olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Roast at 400 just until they begin to brown a bit.
Top them with some grated parm and lemon zest.
My sweet niece Jess made the most beautiful fruit salad.
It was watermelon, strawberries, blackberries and red grapes with fresh
mint and orange zest:)
Oh man! it was good!!
There was a lot of hugging...
and a whole lot of laughing:)
Is my mama the cutest or what??!!
She brought her famous shortbread. I had a piece this morning with
my coffee. One of the many perks of hosting is you get the leftovers!
Chase made these crescent rolls filled with eggs, sausage, cream cheese
bell peppers and onions.
My sister brought this beauty....
Ina Gartens Sour Cream Coffee Cake.
Yeah, pretty aand tasty!
Oh, and those little muffin things on the right are
Pancake Souffle Muffins made by my fab sis in law:)
She even busted out the homemade Strawberry-Maple syrup!
The hubby cooked what seemed like 185 lbs. of bacon
for what seemed like 6 hours:)
...there wasn't a single piece left!
Because we all know that leftover bacon is criminal!
Theeeen, we moved on to the all important egg hunt:)
Let me just shout out some love for my cousins adorable girls.
Yes, they are a sweet as they look:)
A big thank you to my sweet friend L.O. for letting us
egg hunt in your beautiful secret garden:)
It was a wonderful day spent with the ones I love:)
