It’s that time of year where social engagements pull me through the winter blues. Hanging out with great friends, sharing laughter and delicious recipes make the days not seem so chilly or dark. This week, I am lucky enough to be sharing space in a friend’s home.

We have been cooking up a storm and laughing (there may have also been an uplifting movie marathon). I love the moments like this. We went to the market and stocked up for a few days of home cooking, and I snagged some beautiful looking blood oranges from the produce section, hoping to put them to good use.

We pulled out all the stops on Sunday morning, creating a stunning brunch spread. Fried eggs, banana bread, sausages, chopped veggies and greens. All of this and more! I got to work and squeezed the juice from those blood oranges and decided to turn things up a notch, choosing to create a Paloma over the classic Mimosa.

It was the right call. We toasted and enjoyed our stunning brunch. It was the perfect start to a Sunday.

What is your perfect brunch menu?

Chime in and let me know! Is it pancakes or waffles or something savory like eggs and bacon? Is it something fun and carefree like a cereal bar?

Morning tacos or even leftover pizza with the right company is a fantastic spread to share. I’d love to hear your inspiration on how to make the perfect menu and refreshing drinks to toast to the weekend and friends.

Okay, so you're obsessed with mezcal and I'm obsessed with blood oranges! Which means we really need to combine our two drinks (especially since we clearly both use 7UP). This looks great as-is, however...LOVE IT! xoxo
