Brunch: The Best of All the Meals

by Jess on August 11, 2014 · 2 Comments

I love brunch.  Breakfast foods are my favorite types of food, so the idea of eating SO MUCH of it that you eat enough to qualify as two meals, makes me very very happy.  This past Sunday, my roomie/bff/angel from heaven, fixed the brunch of the century.  Sweet potato pancakes!  Here is the recipe:

Babycakes Pannycakes
makes 1 serving

1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
1 egg
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients together well.

Cook in the skillet for about 2 minutes on each side.  Be careful when you flip!  They are delicate!



I made the mimosas, which means there was ZERO math and measuring involved.  My recipe:  Fill a champagne flute with champagne, peach nectar juice, and grapefruit juice in whatever ratio suits you.  My recipes are like snowflakes, no two are ever the same.

Awhile ago, I wrote about the importance of feeling good in your home.  I told you all about my plans to motivated and create the type of living space that I felt good about.  I wrote about it here.  And then I totally dropped the ball.  But, rather than consider myself doomed to a life of cardboard boxes and to-go meals, I revisited the issue here.  And this time.. I’m doing it!  I’m unpacking, I’m organizing, I’m purging the unnecessary, and I’m even scheduled to get some brand spankin new floors!


But perhaps the most important thing I’m FINALLY holding myself accountable for is cooking.  I’ve never been good at it.  I have a heard time following a recipe… I always think I can improve it with a bit of imagination.  I am always wrong.  And I honestly immediately dismiss anything that requires more than 7 ingredients… it’s like my non-negotiable.


It feels good to treat your body right from the inside out.  If you’re like me, and enjoy eating out of whole foods containers at 10pm while sitting on your bed, then I hope you’ll take this step with me.  Let’s slow down a bit.  Food is such a luxury.. let’s enjoy it.  I’ll be posting about my food journey a little more frequently on instagram.


My resource recommendations:

My FAVORITE food blog at the moment is hands down Deliciously Ella.  She is incredible and I’m always excited to see what she’s concocting.  Check her out here.

And here are two more instagram accounts I’m digging at the moment:

Ali and her almond butter

Garden of Eatin


I hope this leaves you feeling inspired to eat well!  And if you are a talented chef in the Wilm area then I hope this leaves you feeling inspired to move in to my kitchen.
