A beautiful friend of mine emailed me about brunch suggestions for a bible study "brunch" that she is having next week and I realized that my recipe box is not organized into "party" suggestions! That is definitely something I will need to work on! Of course, I will start off with brunch/tea! :-)
When emailing her back, this was one of the recipes that immediately came to mind! Very easy and frees up your time to decorate or bake something else more complex! You can even make it the day before and bake it in the morning! In my opinion, this is the perfect breakfast when having house guests!
