I love to brunch. It started in college when I went to school in NYC — everyone brunched on Sundays. Soon I found myself organizing brunches every weekend with my group of friends. I mean, who doesn’t love pushing two meals into one and enjoying bottomless mimosas?
So when Zoe Nathan’s Huckleberry arrived on my desk, it immediately brought me back to my brunching days. The cover is powerful — you’ll want to start baking immediately. As I thumbed through it at my desk I started to mentally plan a brunch menu in my head: butter and herb potatoes, poached eggs, pesto and snap peas, and fresh brioche bread. Boy, was I hungry.
Naturally I went home that weekend and made the chocolate chunk muffins to bring to my co-workers on Monday morning. Success! It’s amazing what a little muffin can do. If you want to jazz up your mornings —weekend or otherwise — I recommend you get a copy of this month’s cookbook pick. It’s bound to make your mornings a little brighter. Also, if you are in the Santa Monica area, be sure to check out the Huckleberry team!
