Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosas

It’s Friday. School is officially over. And, it’s my birthday! Today is just screaming for a celebratory cocktail.

I will fully admit I’m not a huge cocktail person – but mimosas? Mimosas are my jam.

Two stemless wine glasses are filled with a red, bubbly liquid. Strawberries, rhubarb, and bottles are in the background.

Made with homemade strawberry rhubarb simple syrup, this version is a perfectly seasonal treat. I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up #BrunchWeek!

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas

How do you turn enchiladas into a breakfast food? Wrap your favorite omelette fillings in tortillas, then pour egg over the top and bake. The result are these brunch-perfect enchiladas.

Two tortillas filled with and egg mixture and topped with cheese on a white plate. The plate is on a purple napkin and there is a baking dish with more egg-filled tortillas in the background.

The egg mixture flows into the tortillas making each a perfect little bundle. They’re perfectly portioned and easy to serve for company – but they also reheat like a dream so you can make them for yourself and enjoy all week!

Strawberry Scones

We are knee-deep in strawberry season here and, honestly, it’s one of my favorite food seasons! We’ve already been picking twice, and I’ve put up a batch of jam and a batch of pie filling. We’ve been eating strawberries every day – and I’ve been trying some new strawberry goodies.

Eight strawberry scones drizzled with  icing arranged in a circle on a white plate. The plate is sitting on a pink napkin and a container of strawberries is off to the side.

These strawberry scones are an adaption of my favorite savory scone recipe. They’re not too sweet, and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea. And, they’re my kick off recipe for this year’s #BrunchWeek!

Pecan Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Is it even summer if you don’t end up drowning in zucchini at some point? I think not.

Between our garden and our CSA, we always have plenty of zucchini around. I have, of course, been experimenting with lots of new, fun recipes – but I just keep coming back to zucchini bread. It’s a classic.

Chocolate Chip Pecan Zucchini Bread 1

This loaf is our favorite. It’s a little heavy on the nutmeg which gives the loaf a nice spice. Pecans and chocolate chips are mixed in, too, to add a little sweetness and texture.

This recipe does make a big batch, so it’s great to share with neighbors – or freeze a loaf for later!

And if you’re looking for more ways to use up your garden zucchini, I suggest Zucchini Scones, Zucchini, Chile & Red Onion Frittata, or Cheesy Zucchini Enchiladas – all family favorites!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Zucchini Bread

Makes 2 large loaves or 5 small loaves

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pans and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking powder.

In another bowl, beat the eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla together. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the zucchini, pecans, and chocolate chips.

Divide batter between loaf pans. Bake until a knife inserted comes out clean – about an hour for large loaves or 35-45 minutes for smaller loaves.

Are you Team Sweet or Team Savory for breakfast? I’m Team Sweet, though I make a valiant effort to eat something healthy each morning.

Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls 5

Brunch, though, I tend to lean in to the treat-yo-self philosophy. After all, you’re nearly in the middle of the day so desserts are totally acceptable.

Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls

Alright guys, I’m going to admit it: I’m obsessed with cinnamon rolls.

They are just such a satisfying project for me. I love getting the rolls cut perfectly and then watching them puff up as they rise. And the smell? Amazing.

And now that I’ve perfected my favorite recipe, I’m loving trying variations. This variation is my favorite to date. I mean, how do you beat a mash up of cinnamon rolls and banana bread?
