Brunch in the Making

Trial Brunch 

I have been tossing around the idea of a ladies brunch for quite some time and have thrown the idea out out of the window partly because I want to make the day simple and fun and do lots of pretty decor. I struggle to make the day fun without going overboard and I want delicious foods that require absolute minimum effort.

I got my wish on two ideas thanks to my DVR and an episode of Big Daddy's House! Since this is a trial run, I will have to post these two items plus the others as soon as I have my brunch.

In the meantime, I give you -

Pancake Muffins topped with Brown Sugar Cured Bacon and Caramel Cream Cheese Glaze.
I adapted my muffins from this recipe. I decided to do a mildly sweet cupcake with my own pancake batter and included cinnamon in the batter for a little more umph! 

I made a frittata with Montery Jack Cheese, Chives, Onion and Bell Pepper with a nice sprinkle of Turkey Bacon for my husband since his pancake muffins were not topped with anything. (He doesn't eat pork)

This was a really fun way to bake on a Saturday morning/early afternoon. I am so excited now to put together a menu and have some friends over to share in good food and conversation.

Everything looks so yummy :). I love the idea of having a brunch, expecially when it is super easy and relaxing.

Love it! Anything with bacon calls my name, so I'll definitely be trying these muffins.
