Such Pretty Faces

A Space to Relate and Create

Despite being born and raised in the Deep South where there is quite literally a church on virtually every corner, I’m not now, nor have I ever been, a church-goer. In my twenties I discovered the religious institution of a really good brunch, and devoted my Sunday work to sourcing and enjoying the very best food possible. I was very good at this work, and was able to detail out the merits of Brunch like dining establishments by their food menu AND their drink menu.

In my thirties, I procreated and despite my pre children delusion of having the type of children who will sit quietly through a brunch, it turns out this was strictly the stuff of lofty dreams for me and my offspring. Imagine that, my offspring is as mouthy as their mother. I turned my unadulterated love for brunch inward, and became a very excellent culinary master, whose timing is best showcased in a breakfast meal.

I hail from a kitchen family and *I* love to cook. I also love a plate of beautiful food. Lastly, I managed to give birth to a little army of children, so family style beautiful food is my current season of life.

Today, I’m coming at you with a formerly intimidating recipe but actually NOT intimidating at all recipe, Hollandaise Sauce!

It was my brother who taught me this Hollandaise hack, but because he’s not a food blogger, I will move forward in sharing it with the world. In order to make beautiful unbroken hollandaise sauce every time, just use your blender!

The ingredients are simple, and you probably have them all on hand…. and If you don’t have an Immersion Blender already, please for the love of brunch, GET ONE.

It’s so easy, and doesn’t this look fancy? Don’t you want to come to my house for brunch? Breakfast is both a lifestyle and an art form and also apparently the most important meal of the day unless you are an intermittent faster, which I am definitely not.

Hollandaise goes on literally everything but ice cream, but let me give you some ideas for your perfect benedict brunch or dinner:

  • English Muffins (A Must)
  • Croissants (You’re getting fancy but I won’t stop you)
  • Eggs. Duh.
  • Asparagus
  • Bacon
  • Proscuitto
  • Ham
  • Crab meat
  • Spinach
  • Salmon
  • Capers
  • Brisket
  • Crab cakes

Look at her, isn’t she pretty?

Tell her she’s pretty.
