Brunch Love

Brunch is my favorite meal of the weekend. The menus offer a delightful combo of sweet and savory treats from breakfast and lunch.

I enjoyed eating my way thru San Diego’s brunch scene. I do my best to work off all those tasty calories with sculpt yoga classes.

I loved this twist on the classic Egg Benedict. Solace and the Midnight Lounge adds a beef cheek hash.

Cheddar & Chive Biscuits.

Another yummy staple for brunch menus: biscuits and gravy.

I like it when I can pair biscuit and gravy sliders with a bottomless mimosa bar, like at the Duck Dive in Pacific Beach.

Adobo Chicken and Bacon

I found my new favorite recipe for adobo thanks to Top Chef winner Paul Qui.
I found his recipe in a Food and Wine article about his late-night eating habits. He always makes a yummy dinner for his fiancée, even if he comes home after midnight.

Adobo Chicken and Bacon
I love that he added bacon to his adobo dish.

Ginger Rice and Adobo Chicken with Bacon
Qui pairs his adobo with ginger rice. The sharp ginger flavor surprised and worried my hubby at the dinner table. After a few more bites, we agreed that the ginger flavors hit all the right notes with the chicken and bacon.

Mark also said he missed my family’s version of adobo chicken when the meat falls off the bone. So – I think I need to cook the chicken longer in Qui’s mix of white soy, fish sauce and chicken broth. The longer cooking time should make the chicken more tender.

#kvpinmybelly : YUM! @pqui 's #Adobo chicken and #bacon. Pairs nicely with ginger rice. Savory, juicy and my new favorite adobo recipe #foodspotting
Bottom line: a classy upgrade to my family’s comfort food.

Download this episode now. Pair my small bite of seafood with a nice Riesling or a cool Belgium-style brew. I’m dreaming about cool flavors with a little sparkle.

Hubby grilling salmon and bacon-covered asparagus. Yum! #fb on Twitpic

One night, we had dinner on the patio. My hubby grilled salmon and bacon-covered asparagus. He was inspired by our buddy Scott and his method for preparing a big serving of salmon the grill.

In My Belly: Camping

Download episode 2 of ‘In My Belly.’ Goes nicely with white wine. Maybe a vodka tonic.

I had no idea camping could be a culinary adventure. Our friends opened our eyes and mouths to the pleasures of bacon, pancakes and good food at the campsite in Scotts Valley.

Breakfast at the Campsite

Last June, Catalina made reservations at the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. We packed everything into our little Corolla, survived the twists and turns on Highway 17 and spent the night under the stars. In my next episode of ‘In My Belly’ – we cover all yummy options for tent-side eating.

The Most Wonderful Thing On Earth

Behold – my last piece of bacon before Lent.
I made a fried egg sandwich with bacon and blue cheese over sourdough. It tasted like heaven.

Bacon. Fried-up, meaty, fatty and makes me hungry for more….Bacon.
Fried egg  bacon & bleu cheese on sourdough. Last piece of pork before Lent

My bacon buddy Susan introduced me to this funny clip that touches on bed, breakfast in bed and bacon. In fact, I think this is the most time any comedian spends on the fatty gift from pigs.

Bacon.

Bacon – I will miss you.
