I used to hate hearing about brunch until one day I decided to try it out. I fell in love. I don’t particularly know why, but having a late breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday was simply delightful.

After experiencing this not too long ago, I felt inspired! I decided to cook up a brunch for my own family so that we could all enjoy each other around some delicious breakfast food to laugh, smile, and be merry.

Eggs and bacon, as you would guess, were a wonderful compliment to a great weekend spent with family. As you can tell by the picture, these were simple but amazing. They may seem ordinary, but by whipping some air into your eggs you can really turn something basic into something amazing. Trust me, texture matters and it certainly shows here!
