18 April, 2012

Sasha's adorable tablescape 
 Ever so often a group of friends and I try to get together to catch up, one of those happened to be this lovely brunch that my talented photographer friend Sasha (check her site here) put together for us. She made the most divine stuffed french toast. The recipe is so simple yet it gives unexpected results, you'll get the recipe down below thanks to can thank her later! It is s0 much fun to catch up with old friends and see what they are currently up to, sadly since our lives are all over the place these are the times we all get to catch up with each other and laugh about the good ol' days. Most of us have been friends since high school, with new additions along the way, which are always welcomed.

What do you do to stay in touch with your old/new friends?

  1. Yummy! I have been wanting to do a champagne brunch with my friends for the longest time. This food looks great! I am copying this recipe. I may not get my brunch for a while but I can at least make this for myself!


  2. Yummy is indeed right!! You will love the French toast, it should come with a will have more than one!

  3. I've been trying to get some friends together for a at home brunch for awhile now. Doubt we'd do anything as amazing as this though.


Thanks for the love!
