  1. That cinnamon roll skillet looks very exciting. I went for brunch this week and there was cinnamon roll French toast, which was excellent, so a bigger version must be extra exciting. Actually, all the French toast type things look exciting.

    I’m very enthusiastic about brunch right now. Luckily, I’ve been promised another brunch trip before I leave the US, so I can satisfy my brunch food cravings.

    • I KNOOOW! I’ve got reactive hypoglycemia, and a lot of what is here is pretty much off-limits for me. :(

  2. I could live on brunch, I really could, it hits all the major food groups: avocado, eggs, cheese, giant pastries, bloody marys….

  3. If I wasn’t vegan, I’d be making one of these first thing I got home. I still may do that with one of the vegan recipes. I’m getting hungry thinking about it.

  4. I’m gonna be in Durham on the 23rd but I don’t think I can go to the brunch :( For all those going, though, HAVE FUN!

  5. I’m pretty much too lazy to devote this much time to anything besides dinner, but I’d make a whole lot of exceptions for things on this list.


  6. Croissant french toast. Why didn’t I think of that? I generally make my french toast with challah, but croissants….GENIUS.
