Here we are, right on the verge of the unofficially last official weekend of the summer. A final weekend to head to the beach, the neighbor hood pool, or maybe one final barbeque bash to sign off the summer. Maybe some of you have already escaped for this weekend, stretching a three day weekend into four or five days. To you I say, well done! Well done, indeed. However, if you, like me, are stuck on the job for a few more hours…a few more hours until you are able to escape to freedom and bask in the glory of a three day weekend….while you are day dreaming, let me help you plan the perfect weekend breakfast. It is the least I can do.
First though, I need to tell you about Chef Dennis over on A Culinary Journey. I met him back in July at The Big Summer Potluck and I am so glad that I did. BSP was my first ever food blogging conference/retreat, so you can imagine my nervousness going into that first evening. I knew no one. NO ONE. Not a single soul. I knew of a few of the bloggers, but I knew them, they hadn’t a clue who I was. So, yeah…nervous is putting mild. I walked into the hotel lobby Friday evening nervous and shy and all kinds of awkward, however within moments I was pulled into conversation and from there on out, for the remaining weekend, I was more at ease than I ever could have imagined. In the hotel lobby, the group that pulled me into conversation contained Chef Dennis and instantly I knew he contained a wealth of knowledge. Beyond being a professional chef ( he knows his way around the kitchen – just a quick glimpse at his blog and you know he is the real deal) he is overflowing with information from SEO to how Google+ works and how it can benefit your blog. I could have picked his brain for hours! So you can imagine, when Chef Dennis invited me to write a guest post on his blog, I didn’t have to think twice.
So, today…Today I am sharing my recipe for Blueberry Lemon Dutch Baby over on Chef Dennis’ blog, A Culinary Journey. A Dutch Baby (or maybe you call it a German Pancake or just a Giant Popover)…is the ideal breakfast fare for a long relaxing weekend. A breakfast dish that highlights the bright flavors of summer but is also full of carb lovin’ comfort…perfect pairing for the crisp fall air that is slowly creeping into our mornings. Please head on over there and check out not just my recipe, but take stroll around Chef Dennis’ blog…there are some serious recipes over there!
Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
