An Island Francophile with British roots rolled together with solid Americana, garnished with Asian/African heritage and a whisper of the Mediterranean, I love to practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty. Throwing some Sunshine your way - Enjoy!

Brunch on a Whim!

Ham and Big Bacon Bits
Giada at Home's episode of  "Go Fly A Kite", where the family goes out on a picnic was simply divine. The recipes - simple, the flavors a delight. Of the three items she made including strawberry meringue clouds, we had the ingredients to make one of the dishes "as seen on tv". But that did not stop me from making two and making it my way.

Sauteed Shallots

The original recipe is linked below along with a few items I substituted for my version of "Just Baked".

Subbed: Garlic Basil Jack for Gruyere, Ham and Bacon for Pancetta, and Roasted Tomato Italian Bread for Country Style Bread.

Brunch was delish - mangiare tutti!!  
Buon Appetito!
