7 Delicious Recipes for Weekend Brunch at Home

Brunch is serious business.

You can opt to fight through the crowds and line-up with the tourists for a killer weekend brunch OR you can opt-out and create your own stellar brunch menu at home.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love going out for brunch, but more often then not – I’ve been craving lazy Sundays at home where I’m cooking, cleaning, blogging and meal prepping.

Here are a few easy brunch recipes and ideas for your weekend menu:  (more…)

Weekend Brunch: Drake One Fifty in Toronto

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. Having frequented the popular weekend brunch at the Drake Hotel a few times (whose famous blueberry scones have a following of their own), I had yet to visit their sister restaurant.

Are you getting all set for the holiday season?

I know many of you, myself included are hosting family and friends over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. One of my favorite things to do is to host a killer post-Thanksgiving or post-holiday brunch! It’s just another way to make great memories and spend time with the people you love over great food.

Weekend Brunch Ideas

Weekend-Brunch-Voveti

I love brunch.

One of my favourite ways to entertain is by hosting a casual laid-back weekend brunch party at my place. It’s a great way to catch-up with friends and it’s so nice to have something to look forward to at the end of a busy week. Not to mention, you avoid the crazy Sunday brunch line-ups and my guests are encouraged to stay as long as they’d like! (more…)

Corned Beef Hash + Eggs

Corned-Beef-Hash-Eggs

St. Patrick’s Day is NEXT Tuesday March 17th!

I’m celebrating this weekend with this brunch recipe for Corned Beef + Hash with Eggs. I took a lot of shortcuts and used frozen pre-shredded hashbrowns and pre-packaged corned beef which I found at Trader Joe’s in the deli meats section. It really cuts down on preparation time an I highly recommend it.

Serve with a slice of toast and perhaps a dark coffee with some Bailey’s in it and get into the Irish spirit! If you don’t plan on making this for brunch, this recipe also works for dinner – serve with a salad and a Guinness.

Weekend Brunch: L’Abattoir – Vancouver

L'abattoir-Vancouver

By: Mark Sutherland

L’Abattoir knows that Vancouverites can’t get enough of their French twist on West Coast cuisine, so starting this December, General Manager Paul Grunberg is now indulging our love for brunch. The exposed brick walls with essential 90’s R&B playing in the background was the perfect setting to escape a cold, crisp Vancouver Saturday morning in winter.

Currant-Scone-L'Abattoir

My brunch date was running a bit late so my server started me off with some French-pressed coffee from JJ Bean and a currant scone filled with strawberry jam and clotted cream. The scone was wonderfully crunchy and sweet on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. I was a little worried I would fill up on the scone, but the clotted cream was surprisingly light while still having a lovely rich texture to it.

Bourbon-Cinnamon-Toast-Milk-Punch

Once Ashley arrived, we were ready to start with a couple of cocktails. As you do at brunch. The Bourbon Cinnamon Toast Milk Punch ($8) was an absolute hit! A creation of cereal infused cream, bourbon, Becherovka, cinnamon and cocoa bitters. In Ashley’s words: “I can never have cereal without Bourbon. Ever again.” I was feeling a little bubbly, so I ordered the Spanish Steps cocktail ($8) which feature a gin-base and finished off with strawberries and rosé bubbles, I wanted nothing more than Spring to come early so I could spend all day drinking them on a patio.
