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!

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: 

ACS_4553

  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.    

ACS_4552

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

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

  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)
