6 Tips for Hosting a Brunch Party

6 Tips for Hosting a Brunch Party

I think that brunch is the new dinner. At least for people with kids. Anyone else notice that? The dinner invites have stopped and we do a lot of morning gatherings with friends. But I’m not sad about it. After all, brunch is more casual (read: kid-friendly, no paying for a baby-sitter, and I can stay awake the whole time) and who doesn’t love breakfast food all day every day?!

But brunch can also be tricky because of the timing of the different dishes, and you have to plan ahead a little more (because no one is getting up at 5am to cook for friends).

To help keep brunch fun, casual and 100% delicious, here are some great tips, brought to you by Simple Mills.

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

I love this version of carrot cake baked oatmeal. It is packed with nutrition from whole grain oats, plus fruits and veggies. It’s a little more work than a simple bowl of oatmeal, but it is 100% worth it. Great for a brunch or heated up throughout the week.

Breakfast with Siggi’s

Breakfast with Siggi’s

My obsession with Siggi’s yogurt is definitely not a secret. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen plenty of evidence of how I like to eat my Siggi’s. Last week, I was invited to attend a special breakfast event for dietitians – and a couple of food bloggers – that Siggi’s hosted. It involved hearing more about the company from the founder, Siggi Hilmarsson. The event was great, and reminded me of why I love the yogurt and can so easily evangelize for them 🙂

Everyday Cranberry-Apple Crisp

Everyday Cranberry-Apple Crisp

I’ve always been partial to apple crisp… Since I can’t get enough of these flavors, I prefer to make myself an “everyday” version of desserts. Meaning, it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I had it every day. Or, it’s not indulgent enough to be a “once-a-year” treat. Save those versions for holidays and birthdays, in my opinion.

Breakfast: The How-To

Breakfast: The How-To

The topics and questions boiled down to these major categories:

  • Protein vs carbs! Eggs: good or bad? What’s the skinny?

  • Hunger! Either I’m not hungry at all, or I’m starving by the time I eat (and then make bad choices). 

  • Convenience! How do I pick a good breakfast bar, protein bar, shake, smoothie, etc?

  • Time! Let’s make it quick, without sacrificing nutrition.

  • Neat! I want to take on the go or feed it to my kids – without leaving a trail.
