Guest Blogger Alexandra: Mother's Day Brunch

Hello! It's Alexandra, and I am here to guest blog about the Mother's Day brunch I made my mom today!

O Cardapio (The Menu):
~Cinnamon Swirl Bread French Toast w/ powdered sugar, whipped cream, raisins, and pecans on top!
~Orange Slices

~Sparkling Pomegranate Juice

Let me start off telling you about my cooking background. Meals I can cook:

~Cereal (Pouring milk on)
~Toast with jelly or butter
~Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
~Ham Sandwiches or wraps
~Baking Frozen Cookies
~Defrosting Eggo Waffles
~Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (and if my parents disappeared I would eat these three meals a day)

So I was THIS excited that I made a decent meal. Actually, I am going to go so far as to say it was better than decent! So you know I'm happy!

I'm not into the whole "detailed" blog postings. I write random things and who knows... maybe it only makes sense to me! But here is my overview of the meal:

French Toast=Yummy
~It really was good! I didn't mess up! I didn't mess up! I didn't mess up!!!!! Anything that I have to cook to make stresses me out! But if you actually follow the recepie, it will work!

~Yeah, I didn't actually make it. But it was good! Because I was using the skillet for the French Toast, he made it in the oven. It was better this way! It was more chewy and less burnt/crispy! :D

~Yeah, whatever.

I still think cooking is really stressful. Getting the timing right to do everything, set the table, make drinks, etc. It sucks. Butttttt, it's getting easier.

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. The french toast was great.

  2. The french toast looks yummy. With just the right bit of crispness along the crust.
