April's Birthday Brunch

I invited some girlfriends over for my friend April's birthday. Must not have been my day to cook, because I made a few mistakes.

I burned the nuts. I decided to set them out anyway and let people decide for themselves whether to pick over the worst burnt ones or skip them altogether.

I also forgot to put the streusel in the coffee cake. I was following a timeline in the magazine, which suggested making the streusel the day before and keeping it in the fridge. Which I did. After baking the cake, I opened the refrigerator door to get something else out, and there it was.

  • Zucchini Frittata (Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Deborah Madison, p. 574)
  • Strawberries & Whipped Cream

Your brunch sounds wonderful. I seem to always burn nuts. And I've had days like that, when everything I do turns out wrong.

How was the frittata with the basil?
