Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunches are one of my favorite times in the week. It’s relaxing, delicious  and a time to reflect upon the previous week and think about what is coming up next week. Today I had Sunday brunch for one, in my robe, in my kitchen and it was FABULOUS. The chef ( 🙂 ) made delicious Carrot Craisin Pancakes that are out of this world. They low in fat, high in potassium and an easy way to add vegetables into your diet!
