Who says brunch is only for the weekend? If you weren’t able to enjoy a nice brunch this past weekend or you love brunch just as much as I do, you should make this delicious dish that is easy enough to be whipped up on a weekday morning!

When my family visited me in Sydney, they brought over New York bagels, cream cheese, and two pounds of smoked salmon from Sable’s for me because they know how much I love and miss these things from back home. My current flat mate, who is also from New York, and I talk about how much we miss New York pizza and bagels probably at least once a day.

I was thrilled to have heaps of smoked salmon but when I ran out of bagels (that was a sad day), I had to think about other ways I could enjoy lox. Inspired by a great smoked salmon eggs benedict I had at Clinton St. Baking Company, I decided to make Poached Eggs with Avocado & Smoked Salmon.

Sydney Good Eats: Brunch

It is almost the weekend, which means it’s time to start thinking about making brunch plans if you haven’t done so already! For those who know me, it is no secret that brunch is my favorite meal of the day. I only realized my love for all things brunch-related when I went off to college in Baltimore because of all the great local brunch options.

Reasons why brunch is the best meal of the day:

  • More sleep (much needed in college)
  • Wide variety of foods– breakfast/lunch, sweet/savory, hot/cold, etc.
  • Excuse to dress up a little more than usual
  • Creative menu options

The last point refers to the innovative foods I often see on brunch menus. I love trying novel flavor combinations or twists on classic dishes. In fact, I look for those things when I am researching new brunch spots (the type of research I wouldn’t mind doing all day).

The types of snacks you bring on a road trip can make or break the whole experience. To prepare for a three-hour bus ride from Sydney to Canberra, the capital of Australia, for a university course excursion, I decided to bake these cookies for my class. I’m not sure why but I was craving soft, chewy oatmeal cookies and these definitely hit the spot! « Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome to the first post of Celine’s Eats!

After some urging from several friends, I finally decided to start a food blog! I am so excited to launch Celine’s Eats and share it with all of you! If you have not done so already, you should check out the “About” page to learn more about my food background and my vision for Celine’s Eats.

I am currently studying abroad in Sydney, Australia until late November so I thought it would be appropriate to launch Celine’s Eats with a recipe that highlighted the greatness of an Australian creation – Tim Tams. « Read the rest of this entry »
