Good Morning Darlings!

Happy Monday – the first Monday of December. Which means lots of celebrating is around the bend.

If you’ve been with me a while, you know brunch is one of my favorite ways to entertain. Whether in the morning or the wee hours after a black tie gala, bacon, eggs and brunchy foods make everyone happy.

I love this new article by Kate Williams at Southern Kitchen telling you how to put it all together. Visit her here to learn how you can do the same!

Brunch works anytime of the day!

Now get to brunching, my loves!

Cocktails & A Christmas Story

Good Morning Darlings!

Decorate the tree…check. Buy presents…check. Watch little Ralphie beg for a Red Ryder BB gun in A Christmas Story…check! Once you have taken care of everyone else for the holiday season, treat yourself to a classic film and some festive cocktails. Paying homage to this film are some tasty libations that will be perfect for that lazy snowy afternoon in front of the TV. And in case you didn’t know, TBS will be playing the movie continually from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day.

Fragile! It must be Italian!
