Our Sunday Isolated Brunch: What's In The Kitchen I Am Cooking!

Besides being a babbling gal, I am just a plain ole' southern country eating Bama, who loves eating good food.
 And since being in isolation, I totally believe in my mother's motto: what's in the kitchen is what we will be eating. Yep, I stole that phrase from my mom,  because if  I'm gonna steal, I may as well take it from my momz. :)



Who else loves to copy all the recipes and cooking tips from their mother, granny or auntie? I know I do.
 Because we all know the old folk from back in the day can really burn the kitchen down. I remember food dishes; my mom used to cook; when we fell upon hard times. And I never could understand how moms went in an empty kitchen and set the table with a feast.

When my momma went into the kitchen. I knew it wouldn't long before I would smell fried chicken, sweet butter corn, cream potatoes, and hot biscuits. 
My Mother's Motto: Always keep meats in the freezer, flower, sugar milk, and can goods.
So, as a kid, when I saw nothing in the kitchen, mama saw everything to make a feast.

As a child, I grew up knowing how to cook meals that would keep a skinny man's belly full Yep, back in my day, we did not waste food at all because we were taught to bake, shake and fry.

 But, this new generation (like my family) loves quick and fast foods. But, since being in isolation, things have changed a lot. What's in the kitchen is what I am cooking, yep it's that plain and simple.

But, in all fairness, I must admit I have taken on a lot of my mother's and grandmom's traits. I also know how to go into my kitchen and cook up a masterpiece.

Half of my family wanted something salty, and the other half wanted something sweet for our late Sunday brunch.

It didn't take me long to come up with the perfect combo that would seal all the taste buds in my house.

Let's just say the confinement of being isolated will not keep this mama from coming up with a good ole' brunch style meal.

This may not be Instagram worthy, but let's go on into my tiny kitchen and cook up something gooey and chewy.

First, I had to look over everything I had on hand that could make up something special.

I grabbed my heavy whipping cream, whole milk, some old leftover bread from the night we ate spaghetti. The last thing I wanted to use was a little bacon and sausage for my famous egg scramble with a side of hash browns. And my darlings that would be the salty vibes for the other side of my family.

Now let's put all this together.

Ok, first things first, I prepped my heavy whipping cream and powder sugar. I mixed for ten minutes then placed in the fridge until I finished making our morning pastries. I usually use regular whip cream, but as of late, I've been making homemade whip for all my food topping. Honestly, it tastes better.

Moving forward, I pre-cut all my bananas and pecans so the family could place their toppings on top.

Then I used two eggs, carnation milk, nutmeg, a dab of heavy cream, with cinnamon as a mixture for making cinnamon toast.

SideNote: Cinnamon toast can be made in several different ways, and I always try something different.

After mixing my mixture, I soaked my croissant and regular bread before placing it on my hot skillet.

When my skillet gets, piping hot down goes my croissant toast.

Ten minutes later I drop it like it's hot with regular french white bread. Yes, it's 100% yummy and easy to make.

The hash browns are out of the oven, and I am ready to put my whip cream in a bowl.

I must admit my fresh whip wasn't as thick as I usually like it, but it was A-ok for today's isolated Sunday brunch at home.

 The last thing I cooked this morning was a sausage mix with eggs and pepper. Trust me, it tastes better than it looks in the picture.
By the time I finished making brunch, my kitchen was a total mess. But it did not matter because I accomplished the best sweet and salty meal my family could ask for.

In conclusion: Being in isolation is teaching me so much about life through cooking and eating with my family. I spend a lot of time eating on the go because of our hectic and chaotic schedules. But, being home now, I am becoming more appreciative of eating and enjoying the simple things we all call life.

I love sweets, and I love salty things, and today's meal proved I could make anything out of what I already have in my kitchen.

Since being at home, I am cooking more now than I have ever done in my life. Honestly, I love every bit of it, and I wouldn't change one minute of getting to know my family all over again.

Perhaps I may need to go on a diet when all of this is over. But, for now, I am enjoying the laughs and mid-day eating we are doing at the moment.

What's in your kitchen that you love cooking?

Please share because I am so nosey:)

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
