How to do Brunch Platters

April 15, 2020 by Sarah Moniri


A while ago, my friend Leonie made this amazing Brunch Platter wich made the Brunch so more fancy. Ever since every Brunch takes place with a Brunch Platter. Here are some ideas from Pinterest but in general this is how to do it: 

  1. Get lots of fruits (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, melon...)
  2. Colorful vegetables also look good ( Red Pepper, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Avocado)
  3. Get some spreads (hummus, vegan cream cheese, tomato cream...)
  4. NUTS as fillers 
  5. Crackers to dip
  6. Antipasti 



I usually start at the right corner and try to mix the colors. When I have empty space I fill it up with nuts. I also don't make my own spreads I just pimp them up with herbs and olive oil. 


I also like to add some chili oil over avocado - it's so good. 


Pancake Platter : 

  1. Pancakes 
  2. Peanut Butter, Maple Syrup , Jam - whatever you like
  3. Fruits ( Banana!!!)
  4. Chocolate Chips 



I like to decorate around the pancakes and just splash the chocolate chips and fruits around it. It's really easy and so much fun!

- enjoy, xo sarah

Autumn Tea 3 ways

September 11, 2019 by Sarah Moniri


I know , I know... how can I not love coffee? I'm a Tea Lover, forever and ever. When I was little, people told me that I will love coffee someday but I don't and I don't mind at all. Tea means coziness and wellbeing. I always wanted to make more season themed tea so here are my 3 Favorites: 


  1. Classic Orange - Ginger: Take 2 slices of Oranger and 3 slices of Ginger. Boil Water and pour it over it. Let it sit for 10 minutes.    


2. Pumpkin Spice Tea: Take 1 teaspoons of cloves, 2 teaspoons of Ginger Spice and 1 cinnamon stick. Add 2 cups of Water and bring to a boil. Once it boils, lower the heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Sieve and Enjoy! 


3. Autumn infused Tea: Add 1 apple, 1 cinnamon stick, 3 slices of Ginger, 1 bag of green tea to 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and turn down the heat. Let it simmer for another 10-15 minuets. 

Hope this will make your Fall more tasty & cozy!

- Xo, Sarah.

Challah French Toast

März 17, 2018 by Sarah Moniri


I'm a huge fan of anything containing yeast dough! When my grandma made her famous yeast dough apple pie I loved the dough more than the actual outcome and stomach ache was the result of my excessive yeast dough consume(worth it tough).                                            So combining a braided bun and a famous breakfast classic is my ultimative sunday morning jam. 



Challah French Toast( makes around 3 servings): 

  1. 1/2 loaf Challah from your local bakery
  2. 3-4 eggs 
  3. 2 tablespoon Milk or cream 
  4. As much cinnamon as you prefer
  5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 


Whisk the eggs together and add the cinnamon and the vanilla extract. 



Slice the bread into thicker slices( otherwise they will be too soaked)


Add it to the egg mixture and let it soak for about 2 seconds on every side. 


Put into a medium preheated pan and fry until both sides are nice and crisp. 


Add Nutella and few berries and enjoy your sunday morning!

-love Sarah!
