Kristina Nichols-Wolter, who writes and photographs the blog Girl Gone Grits, developed this simple, delicious and elegant brunch menu to celebrate Mother’s Day. But any day becomes a celebration when you start off with this delightful meal.

Sunny Eggs in a Frame

2 Servings


2 Slices of good bread
1/2 Avocado, sliced
2 Eggs
Salt & pepper


Cut out the center of the slices of bread using a small drinking glass as a guide. Heat skillet; put in butter. Brown bread frame lightly on one side. Butter the bread rounds and place alongside of frame in skillet. Brown bread rounds, turn over and put aside.  Crack one egg into each frame. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cook to desired doneness. Flip over and cook for a minute longer. Place avocado slices on top of egg.  Place bread round on top of avocado.  Serve.

Guava Mimosa’s


2 oz. Guava nectar
Chilled Prosecco


Place nectar in a champagne flute and fill with Prosecco.

Hint – I like to mimic whatever fruit I’m serving with my brunch. If I have tropical fruit than I will try and find tropical juices.  Check out the canned juice aisle or the Latin foods aisle the next time you’re in the grocery store and see what kind of different Mimosa’s you can come up with. The cans are pretty inexpensive so you could easily make a “Mimosa bar” for a larger party.  I also prefer Prosecco over champagne for these cocktails because it gives the same bubbly effervescence but at half the price.

Spicy Candied Bacon


1 lb bacon (I like to use thick center cut)
1/4 tsp. of chili powder ( I play around with heat and switch this all the time)
1/2  cup of coconut sugar.


Preheat oven 350°

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place bacon slices down on sheet. Mix chili powder and coconut sugar evenly.  Sprinkle sugar mixture all over bacon. Bake until the bacon is crisp about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven.  With tongs (I can’t stress this enough) remove bacon to paper towels to drain fat. Do not keep bacon on paper towels, as it will stick from all the sugar.

Hint –You can use brown sugar and coarse black pepper for a tasty alternative.
