Brunch is my favorite meal to host in our home. The recipes are simple and easy to make. Sitting around the table lingering over a steaming hot cup of fresh brewed coffee sets the tone for elongated conversations and connection.

Here is a sample menu and 2 egg casserole recipes one with meat and one vegetarian that are proven crowd pleasers.



Veggie Egg Dish

Sausage Egg Dish

Cinnamon Rolls ( I always use Rhodes ) – they rise over night and taste homemade

Vanilla Yogurt


Fresh Fruit


Orange Juice


Assorted creamers – frothed
