I’ve got a full weekend of making lovey birthday faces at my husband coming up. Plans mostly include beach time and ingesting obscenely large amounts of french toast. So I guess just a normal weekend then…
Husbands birthday is coming up this weekend, and it’s got me thinking about romantic breakfasts for two.
Breakfast in bed is one of those things that seems really romantic, but doesn’t actually happen all that often in real life. For starters, if you get up to make breakfast, it sort of ruins the whole “spend the morning in bed having delicious breakfast and lounging” especially if said breakfast takes an hour to make. Once you’ve been up for an hour, you’re up and that’s that, there’s no going back.
So the other day I experimented to see if I could find a quick, simple and delicious recipe that’s perfect for wanting to hop right back in the sack for a lazy morning. Here’s what I came up with…
Miniature German Pancakes
Yields 3 little guys
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 400°
Husbands, do this for your wives, it will make them want to make out with you.

Miss C and I are headed over to Santana Row for the Madewell opening with our sweet mama. Who’s coming?
In honor of the grand opening of Madewell Santana Row next Tuesday, I’m sporting a couple of my favorite Madewell items!
Are any of you heading to the Madewell grand opening? Cause I’ll be there.
Join me, won’t you?
Here’s some snap shots of this weeks comings and goings-
How sweet are those? Apparently they are called “Weels”, wedge + heel= weels. It’s celebrity mash-up name. They can be yours from Anthropologie.
These Rounded Horn Sunglasses I also had hoped would come home with me, but alas something had to go back-
Maybe I can live through you. You can buy them here.
Then I was at Target, and in this weird little off to the side section by the stationary I found the motha-load. I had never even heard of this company (that probably makes me an ignoramus….have you heard of them??) called Mara Mi. They had so much cute stuff! Strangely I couldn’t find ANY of these things online, but here are some crummy Iphone shots-
As the temperatures rise, a sweet cool treat is just what the doctor ordered. Yesterday, the temperature climbed to around 80, and I decided it was the perfect day to try my hand at sorbet.
After bouncing around the internet and pulling ideas from a few different recipes, here’s what I came up with:
- 3 cups freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (for me it took about 4 red grapefruits)
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon grapefruit zest
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, zest, and 1/2 cup grapefruit juice and simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Stir in the remainder of the grapefruit juice and set aside until room temperature. Place the saucepan in the refrigerator and cool completely. Once cool, pour the mixture into an ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet maker and follow the manufacturers instructions.
I allowed my sorbet to freeze overnight after being processed in the ice cream maker and this morning the texture was absolutely perfect, and the sorbet delicious!
Give my recipe a try and let me know what you think!
I hope you love it as much as I do!
