While scanning the interweb for today’s featured food blog of the week, I decided I’d also look for a few brunch dish ideas for future brunches to be held at my new abode. I’d need to find a few sweet dishes, a couple savory, and a few cocktail recipes to make this a boozy occasion. Usually, I have to use a couple different recipe blogs to put together one solid menu, but when I came across See You In The Morning, I looked no further.
See You In The Morning is a slightly quirky and very photo-forward food blog that had me hooked almost instantly. As foodies, we come across food blogs all the time with people going on about their origins and inspirations and how the dog they had in the second grade inspired these oatmeal cranberry muffins. That is all well and good, but sometimes a few photos, a recipe, and some words about it are all we really need. See You In The Morning is by no means a novel outlining a play-by-play of the writer’s life, but it is a great depiction of what she loves: food and everything else that comes with it.
A good place to begin on See You In The Morning is in the breakfast section, which has a great variety of sweet and savory breakfasts to start the day off right. Simple and tasty dishes like a Peanut Butter, Bacon, Banana and Honey Sandwich are a great way to satisfy the sweet and salty aspects of a morning meal. I also love her recipes for the Dutch Baby Pancake with Cherries and Hazelnuts and the Chocolate Cherry Skillet Bread. Chocolate with breakfast? Yes please.
From there, jump right into her section on salads and you’ll instantly get hooked on the Green Quinoa with Corn, Scallions, Plums and Pistachios; Brussels Sprouts with Edamame, Lemon, Pecorino and Basil; and the homemade Buttermilk Ranch to top a salad of Lettuce, Tomato, Corn and Pecans. I love any salad that can be turned into a full meal on its own, and her Roasted Cauliflower with Fingerlings and Lemon Tahini Dressing embodies that perfectly.
While See You In The Morning has its fair share of savory treats, the focus is predominantly on satisfying the sweet tooth. Each recipe seems sweeter and more delicious than the last. Check out the section entitled Pudding and Things and you’ll see what I mean. A Banana Chocolate Hazelnut Cake is a great place to start and Meyer Lemon Pistachio Rice Pudding is one of many sweet treats to finish up with.
Since I managed to find all of my sweet and savory ideas for brunch from this blog, I continued to look around for what it had to offer in terms of drinks. Find, I did. A recipe for Habanero and Bacon Infused Vodka for Bloody Marys really blew me away. Or, to keep things sweet and rich, the Hot Malted Vanilla with Chocolate Whipped Cream. Mission accomplished.
I hope you can take away some delicious recipes from See You In The Morning just like I did! Have any food blogs that you absolutely love? Tell us about them in the comments section below.
