Sunday brunch is a great time to catch up with friends and visit your loved ones. In my family, we try to keep the tradition of meeting for brunch at least once a month, but meeting at restaurants can limit the time spent together. The restaurant bill can also be pretty pricey when we brunch with a large group. So we started a new tradition. Brunch at home! Brunching at home is a wonderful way to visit each other’s home and spend limitless time with one another. The children can play while the adults talk and laugh without any worry. This month, it’s my turn to host brunch, and I will be making various frittata’s to go with sweet, creamy pastries and refreshing mimosas. My favorite frittata to prepare for brunch, is this asparagus and zucchini frittata. It’s fluffy, tasty and a slice will satisfy hearty appetites. Serve it with heavy cream for added flavor, or keep it healthy and add pico de gallo or ricotta cheese for a zesty bite. MORE + LESS -
