My Dream Brunch

You know what they say, “The sweeter the brunch the closer to God”. Okay, maybe nobody says that, but brunch will always be the way to my heart. For my birthday last year, Ben made my dream breakfast – french toast, fruit salad, candied bacon, etc.

I’ve been working non-stop lately at the Pilates studio and today I finally had a morning off. Luckily for me, Ben went to work making magic happen again in the kitchen – a throwback to the best brunch ever. A nap afterwards is mandatory.
