Stacks on Stacks

Not sure why this popped into my mind this morning. Maybe I’m just really hungry. Maybe I’m looking forward to brunch tomorrow with friends. Maybe I’m unsure how my weekends will look like with my new job and I’m mourning the loss of long weekend brunches. Either way, now I want stacks of everything. Stacks of pancakes and waffles and doughnuts and runny egg sandwiches and unlimited coffee refills. Ok, time to make breakfast.

What are you eating this weekend?

Happy (Long) Weekend!

Time for the weekend! I’ve got one of my best girls visiting for the weekend so I know that will include quality catch up time, good food (ok, when is there ever not good food?), and a little DC exploring. I’m definitely taking that extra day and dedicating it to creativity – time to get inspired and amped up for a new project or two I think! What’s on tap for you this long weekend? Yes, I think a bright coat and pink doughnuts should be included!

Daily Inspiration

I’ve fallen off the radar a bit because I’m knee deep in a fun but intense work project. I wanted to share a few things that are keeping me inspired… a sparkling clean and beautiful house, strawberry doughnuts(!), and being a bit of a type nerd. I’ve been listening to some great music that has kept me going too…check out some of my faves below. What are you listening to this week?

Time to Make the Doughnuts

When I was in high school, my dad used to wake me up every morning at 6am by opening my bedroom door and softly singing “Nik, time to make the doughnuts.”

I think about that almost every morning and smile. And then I want to find the closest doughnut. It’s a bit of an obsession. I get really excited when I see them on a menu and lucky for me, DC has some great doughnuts! Some of my recent faves…

Clockwise: 1. pork belley jelly doughnut from mike isabella at cochon 555 2. Coffee zeppole with mascarpone cream at Graffiato 3. carrot cake doughnuts at virtue feed and grain 4. Doughnut trio at Birch and Barley (lemon poppyseed, toffee-bacon, bittersweet chocolate)


And well, my dad was right, it’s time for me to make doughnuts. It’s a baking project I’ve put off for some time, but now I think I’m ready. While I decide which kind I’ll finally make, here are some of my favorites that I’ve pinned to my Breakfast & Brunch board to get me inspired!
