On valentines day I always like to prepare something special for my boys and it often gravitates around brunch or breakfast. I love to make this day ultra special without being complicated. For me it’s all about creating memories, spending quality time together and having a little fun. I set up the table with little touches that are personalized and create an easy peasy menu that the boys will love. In our household, we can’t go wrong with pancakes, even better when served in a heart shape with little candies as a topping. This year Valentine’s day falls on a weekday but we can definitely make it special by setting up the table the night before (when the kiddos are in bed), placing little goodies on their chair and prepping my go-to pancake batter, in advance. With a bit of preparation, Valentine’s day will be as memorable this year, as if it would fall on a restful Sunday! Happy Valentine’s day everyone! -xo-
Soup is often on my weekly meal menu. They’re comforting to make and comforting to eat and I can pack/hide tons of vegetables in them, an overall win-win in my book. This particular one has been on rotation for a few weeks and it’s finally perfect in my opinion. I love the mix of flavors and textures that the cabbage, fennel, and thyme bring to this recipe. A family favorite that takes almost no time to prep and is packed with flavors and healthy ingredients.

We love waffles around here, especially for a weekend brunch! I usually make these on Sundays and get the kids involve in prepping the batter, it makes for a nice little family activity. We always come up with different ingredients to include to give different flavors to our waffles, like cinnamon, chocolate chips or shredded coconuts. Yesterday while I did a pit stop at the market to pick up some eggs I saw the eggnog next to the milk and taught what a good and festive idea to add to our Sunday waffles! It was a great idea indeed. Try a batch this week or on Christmas morning for a fun and festive side to your Christmas brunch.
