We gave Dad a choice this Father’s Day ~ go out for brunch or brunch at home. Brunch at home won hands down and so it was declared….We shall have Eggs Benedict! Works for me. This was also a chance to cook with my kid, who I adore and am inspired by on so many levels.

I hope she’ll guest post for me some day soon!
