Bring on Brunch

Brunch has always been one of my favorite meals.  As a Chef we really don't go to bed early so we are always kinda too late for breakfast with everyone else, but I LOVE breakfast so brunch works out well for me.  I love the idea of a lazy Sunday afternoon at home in your pj's sipping on hot coffee or earl grey tea and enjoying a fabulous brunch with your loved ones. In a fast paced world it is the perfect way to wind down and recharge at the same time. I hope you use these recipes to have a special Sunday with your family.
