When I think of summer food and treats, one of the first things that pops into my head are tomatoes. Growing up in south Jersey, summer was the signal that the most delicious tomatoes are about to descend upon us.
I remember buying something on Amazon one day and a product popped up they thought I might like (aw how thoughtful are they?). They were those silicon egg rings to make your sunny side up eggs into a perfect circle. I obviously bought them. Would I do it again?
What do you look forward most to when you have a holiday brunch? It may be the quiche, the ability to eat both breakfast AND lunch on one plate, gathering around with family (obviously). Aside from all the wonderful things to brunch on, I think every good brunch needs to be rounded out with a fun dessert.
I love that sea salt emerged in the last few years in a very unexpected way. I remember walking into my corner Starbucks (probably 6 years ago) and giving their Salted Caramel Latte a whirl. My life was changed. Salted is the answer to my sweet and salty cravvving!! You know why you love chocolate covered pretzels? The salt. It’s a classic combo that has really come into its own.
I remember the first time I ever had a scone. There is this little cafe in the shore town my parents live in and my mom and I popped in for a treat. I was probably 12. There were these beautiful rustic mounds of pastry deliciousness that I’ve never encountered before. But, I saw chocolate chunks and I had to take the chance.
