Sunday was the 7th Annual Valentine’s Brunch! And it was super fun. It involved: cheese plates, mimosas, a few fried things and even flower crowns. (They’re pretty easy to make, if you can even believe it).
We all hung out and ate tons of food and drank mimosas by the pitcher. I kinda wish I would’ve eaten more! And my friends did secret dishes and it made the clean-up so much easier. I feel so lucky to have all these people in my life.
So much can happen in a year! Thank goodness, right?
For the sweet side of things, I made my mom’s cinnamon rolls and topped them with a bourbon glaze. I fried up some ricotta fritters, and made my go-to baked French toast cupcakes. This year I used challah bread for the french toast and put some rhubarb sauce in the bottom of each cup.
It turns out that my favorite polenta-crust quiche bake up really cute and tasty in cupcake liners! And these veggie burgers taste pretttttty great on pumpkin brioche buns. Nicole helped me fry up some avocado fries too!
We listened to tons of good songs thanks to this playlist. Do yourself a favor and listen to it all day while you have a party or bake cupcakes or lounge on the couch.
I passed out Valentines with poems on them like, “Roses are red, violets are blue, I like you more than cookies, cake and pizza too.” Some of them involved double dating in a Taco Bell drive-thru and even liking someone’s pug more than them a little.
I fried up breakfast corn dogs like I did last year, and made teeny Croque-Monsiers on sliced baguette!
My boyfriend took tons of Instax photos and finding them around my apartment is making me so happy! It was probably the best brunch party yet!
Thanks to Westborn Market for sponsoring some of my grocery buying, bourbon for making a cinnamon roll glaze such a dream, huntsman cheese for being so stripy-magical, honeycomb decor and Instax photos!
