ENTERTAINING 101: If you're planning on having a slumber party involving LOTS OF WINE, make sure breakfast the next morning is SIMPLE.
Toasting bread, caramelizing pears and spreading cinnamon sugar & mascarpone on top is child's play.
Adding a side of scrambled eggs with truffle salt & bacon? That's where things get a little more complicated.
Photographing a brand new recipe in front of 4 people who are waiting to eat breakfast? Crazy idea!
Especially when you forget to drink coffee.
This one is definitely going in my I DRANK TOO MUCH LAST NIGHT BUT HAVE TO FEED SOMETHING AWESOME TO GUESTS, folder. It's super scrumptious & simple!
