Wimbledon Brekkie


I got up bright and early to watch Murray and Raonic battle it out on the grass courts for the Wimbledon title yesterday. Wimbledon is my favorite Grand Slam and though my main man Federer didn’t make it this year I was still excited to sip on champagne and eat a breakfast smoked salmon pizza and watch .

I made the pizza with naan as the crust and then just put what I like on top: crème fraîche, smoked salmon, lemon, capers, red onion, and cracked black pepper. It almost made me forgot Federer wasn’t playing. Henry didn’t get any of the pizza so he was pretty sad about Fed still—as you can see.



Happy Easter!


Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter!  We had a great Easter brunch filled with Easter borscht, crostini’s, baked eggs, asparagus and of course hard boiled eggs (you can see my classic rainbow one below). Oh and how could I forget, after all that brunch we had smoked ribs, brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. I made a poppyseed cake for dessert.  I know I always say the cakes are amazing but this was literally one of the tastiest cakes I have ever made.  With that said it was also the ugliest.  I had issues with it sticking to the pan for one cake and the other I decided to cut in half and it was just to delicate for that. This is your warning…viewers discretion is advised for the cake picture.  If this is your first time visiting my site, please don’t judge my baking/cooking/traveling abilities by this cake.
