I used to think that brunch was only a food fad that my grandparents participated in, during the 50's and 60's. However, as I have gotten older, and the trend has grown exponentially in popularity, I am slightly disappointed I didn't pay more attention to it when I was younger.

Summer is berry season, but you already knew that. You’ve been to the farmers’ market. You’ve seen the stands teeming with delicious berries. (I hope yours are cheaper than mine in San Francisco.)
My particular kitchen vibe is best described as “assembling ingredients.” Rarely does what I do cross over into “cooking” territory. I argue, however, that what I do requires a different set of skills than cooking. In order to assemble ingredients in a satisfying way, one has to have a taste for what ingredients will go well together. Usually, I steal from restaurants. This situation is no exception.
It’s a new year, but I’m the same old me, standing here in my kitchen trying to figure out how to give myself a well-balanced breakfast with the least amount of effort. Of course, I’m going to have toast. I have a piece of Aunt Millie’s Best Grains whole wheat bread in the toaster, ready to go. I just need something to put on it.
