Did you know I also do a Podcast? It’s called The Table Set. There are three of us on the show and we sit around the table and talk about parties. Parties we’ve been to, parties we want to go to, and mostly parties we plan to have. One of our favorite ‘solutions’ to party planning is something we call brunchify it. Because any party can be turned into a brunch party– no matter what time of day. Just think about it. Everybody likes breakfast for dinner, right? Besides, if ever there were an excuse to throw a brunch party, Easter is it. But what makes a brunch party a success?
Well, let’s look at it this way. What’s the first thing you think of when I say ‘brunch’? I bet you answered ‘Bloody Mary’. Because a good Bloody Mary is the quintessential brunch drink. It became an instant classic upon its arrival in the mid 1930s. Then it was little more than tomato juice and vodka– a bit milder than the brunch drink of today. The modern, spiced up version has become massively popular. So I’d argue that a good Bloody Mary recipe is the first ingredient in a successful brunch party. But don’t expect me to offer one up here. Bloody Mary recipes are abundant. You don’t need my help with that. Besides everyone has their own set of rules, complete with secret ingredients and ‘must have’ garnishes. I don’t want to get in the middle of that tussle. Read More
Easter and Spring means that flowers are everywhere! They are blooming beautifully everywhere I look and create such a colorful world. This weekend, for Easter, I am having my father over for a small Danish feast, which will include lots of fish and meats and of course some good snaps. I still get excited to have people over to Estus’ (my understanding boyfriend) and my tiny apartment because decorating the house means a lot to me. Read More

Quiche is one of those recipes that is tucked away in the back of the recipe box. I often forget about it, but when I do make it, I fall in love all over again. What I love most about quiche is that it can go from breakfast to dinner merely by switching up ingredients. I use to make it regularly but with us cutting down on dairy, it is one of the things that had to go. I have a feeling that may change after making this recipe.
