Mimi Does Easter Brunch

IMG_0654

I  love Easter.  It’s perfect for brunch, my favorite meal to cook and to eat.  We don’t do brunch often because, if you do it right, it takes up the entire afternoon and requires a nap to recover.    I think Bobby Flay is the MAN when it comes to making a brunch that kicks butt and I confess that I am a “Flay-fanatic”.  I saw him bake monkey bread on TV and became obsessed with making it as well.  I even researched baking with yeast at high altitude and adjusted the recipe because I was in Denver.  It was worth every ounce of effort.

Our celebration included 2 baby girls, one is just over 2 years old.  She is just about the most entertaining human being on earth.  All 2 year olds are slightly crazy and everything is fun!  We staged an “eggstravaganza” for her  …  plastic eggs with candy hidden around our apartment.  She is VERY clever and found them all!
