Memorial Day weekend, my sister and I had a whirlwind trip to Brooklyn. We ate perfect food at perhaps my favorite breakfast establishment (anywhere?) and I have to share it. We didn’t order anything I hadn’t had before, but that’s because I love the things we did eat so much.
Please enjoy these photos of our breakfast. YUM!
coffee and beignets
biscuits and vegetarian gravy (w/ mushrooms) and caramelized grapefruit with brown sugar and mint
eggs rothko - brioche with egg over easy under melted cheese, with candied bacon and a broiled tomato
requisite table-top portrait - sisters
Apologies for being remiss in my blogging. Some technical difficulties and off-computer distractions have collaborated to keep me away from here for about a week. Anyway, I’m back. And I made a pie!! After a long winter full of disappointingly liquidy apple pies, I am pleased to present my first strawberry-rhubarb pie of the year. I am even more pleased to say that it is reportedly “just like grandma’s” — however I should note that I have still not graduated from pillsbury crust. I’m working on it, and as far as I’m concerned, I’ve got all summer to master fruit pies with homemade crust. It was still really really pretty!!
