The Weekend Dish: Breakfast

by

We have breakfast on the brain here at A & O as we gear up to make it for our clients this weekend! The forecast is in the 80’s so the weather will be perfect for peachy pink freshly squeezed Cara Cara orange juice and Italian breakfast paninis (pancetta, egg, arugula and slow roasted tomatoes) served on the deck overlooking the ocean.

I ADORE breakfast. Eggs are one of my favorite foods (as seen here and here.) Growing up my mom would make my brother and I popovers for breakfast on very special occasions! Hot from the oven and slathered with raspberry jam, the are truly one of the best things on earth.

My Dad used to make us creatively shaped chocolate chip pancakes which we topped with whipped cream (from a can of course) or little marshmallows.

Now days I like to start the day with something lighter and healthier like our Cranberry Coconut Granola over Greek yogurt.

Or a green smoothie with seasonal or frozen fruit and lots of leafy greens during the week.

But weekends are a time to indulge in a big breakfast and the shared act of celebrating the morning with your loved ones.  If I was cooking for myself this weekend I might make Sarah’s Lemon Blueberry Pancakes

Or the sweet breakfast panino we featured this week with the mouthwatering combination of Nutella and Bananas!

This weekend make something special for breakfast at home or treat yourself to a breakfast date with a girlfriend. Enjoy one of the weekend’s best little rituals in honor of Sarah and I as we slave away in the slums of Malibu.
