The most wonderful time of the year is here, so over the next month, Brookfield Residential will be bringing you inspiration and tips on how to fill your new home with cheer. We’re proud to build the #BestPlacesToCallHome, and we know that there’s no place like home for the holidays.
The heart of the home is the kitchen, and the oversized kitchen island at Beverly at Eastwood Village in Irvine made for the perfect backdrop for us to prepare a variety of sweet and savory brunch dishes.
Bring holiday flavors and festive colors to the table with pears poached in cranberry juice and apple cider. For a seasonal twist, pair with chai-spiced whipped cream – just add grated cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and clove to whipped cream. Finish off the pears by topping with pomegranate seeds and chopped pecans.
Mini egg frittatas baked in muffin tins are an easy way to add small bites to group gatherings. Garnish the frittatas with fresh rosemary, thyme and goat cheese for a hint of sophistication.
As a healthier alternative, whip up some yogurt parfaits topped with fresh figs. Stemless champagne flutes offer an elegant touch to this nutritious option.
No brunch is complete without drinks. Serve spiced cider with cinnamon sticks and star anise. This quick and easy concoction combines festive flavors and shapes in one seasonal beverage.
And we saved the best for last – the real star of the brunch show is the berry Bundt cake. Topped with fresh blackberry sauce and a dash of powdered sugar, this vibrantly colored cake is a beautiful centerpiece for any table.
