How To Create A Brunch DIY Avocado Toast Bar

Avocado toast has been getting a bad rap right now and it shouldn’t, because it’s downright delicious and affordable when you make it at home. Also, a brunch dish cannot be blamed for an entire generation being unable to afford a house in an overpriced city centre.

Don’t even get me started.

I catered a Vegan Baby Shower with Jenni Bost (all photos in this post also by Jenni) last month for our friend Lindsay Ingalls. If you missed it – see my post on this Vegan Cheese Platter I created. Now you’re thinking, what do you serve at a vegan brunch that doesn’t require eggs or meat?

Avocado toast to the rescue! (more…)

By: Natalia Dziubaniwsky

I love trying new brunch spots in the city, so when the opportunity came to try the newly launched Soul Brunch at Drake One Fifty, I knew I couldn’t resist.

Warm Cheddar Scones

These warm cheddar scones are possibly the way to my heart.

I met Susan Holding of The Little French Bakery at Alt Summit. We were cooking chicken together with Kelsey Nixon and shared a stove! Susan posted this wonderful recipe recently for Cheddar Scones and I just had to share it with you. A serious upgrade from what I remember from my Red Lobster-loving days.

It’s perfect for pairing with a chowder, soup or stew and perfect comfort food for this cool fall weather. You can also whip ’em up for weekend brunch and serve with eggs. I’ve never tried making scones from scratch before – maybe once, but I probably used a mix. I’m most impressed with how easy it really is.

Thank you Susan for sharing your recipe with me!
