Puff pastry egg in a basket for Mother's Day lunch at EatingRichly.com


Life is running at full speed ahead. I recently realized that I will be traveling 3 of the next five weeks. I am SO not ready! While I don’t have time to write a long and flowery post about how perfectly the flaky puff pastry, rich egg, spicy sausage, and creamy cheese pair together, I just had to share this post before Mother’s Day.

If I were to get breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day, which I won’t because I will be on an airplane, THIS is exactly what I’d want. It’s beautiful, simple, and hey, I could even hold it with one hand to eat while breastfeeding the baby!

Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day. Eric and Corban and I will be on our way to beautiful Florida to speak at BlogHer Food. We’ll be sharing all about telling stories through video, and have a really fun video coming up in the next couple of days.
