Ideas for a Brunch from the Pros

brunch ideas

Alright.  Today’s Blog Every Day in May post is supposed to be “a moment from my day,” well I don’t think that it’s fair to choose a moment from my day before the majority of it has happened (although there’s a 50/50 chance that you end up with a picture of my bed at the end of the day because I forget) – so in the meantime, please enjoy the following post.

PS. If you didn’t know already, I LOVE brunch.

I have a friend at work who has a theory that I’m only friends with people who can cook.  Now, while this is not a criteria for me to be friends with you it does appear to hold true.  A few weeks ago I went to a brunch at Johanna and John’s house.  I like to refer to these two as “the Pros”.  In case you missed the previous blog post called “Party Hosting Tips from the Pros

These two cooked a breakfast feast that could have served 15 for 6 people.  I helped make a fruit tart – I’m super proud of it.  John’s eggs benedicts were incredible.  Johanna is a cooking queen.  And everybody else helped out in between – except Ted – that’s another story.

What are your favorite brunch foods?  (Seriously, I’m always looking for new ideas.)

    What is esquites? I have never heard of it and it looks like cole slaw. That can’t be right. More information please. Everything looks so delicious!

    Alison… I’m slightly embarrased… I generally refrain from serving things that I have not made, but I caved and bought the rugelach and the scones at Wegmans.

    Cate, I can’t find a link for the particular recipe I used but it is corn and queso fresco with a mayo, lime juice, lime zest, and cayenne pepper dressing.
