Savory Pancake Brunch

Roasted corn with spring peas is a great brunch dish this season. Bring this combination to your Sunday brunch.

Recipe

Roasted Corn Pancakes with Spring Pea Puree Poached Egg with Roasted Corn Aioli

Spring Pea Puree (make the day before and reheat)

2 TBSP Olive Oil

1 shelled fresh or frozen peas

2 cloves garlic

1 small onion chopped

1/4 cup broth (chicken or vegetable broth)

1 TBSP Chopped Parsley

2 TBSP Lemon Juice

2 tsp. fresh mint leaves (1 tsp. fresh mint chopped)

2 TBSP Cold Butter

Sea Salt/Ground Pepper

In a sauce pan over medium heat oil until hot. Add the peas, onions, and garlic until softened. Fresh peas 1 to 2 minutes froze peas 3 to 4 minutes. Add the broth cook until the peas are tender. Remove from the heat add the parsley.

Place in the a blender or use an immersion blender. Add the butter blend till puree. Add the mint, dash of salt and pepper blend well.

Roasted Corn Aioli (can be made the day before)

1 TBSP lemon juice

1 Tsp. lemon zest

2 cloves of garlic

2 eggs

2 TBSP Parsley

1 Tsp. Dijon mustard

1/4 Tsp. Salt

1/8 Tsp. cayenne pepper

1 cup olive oil more may be needed

2 ears of roasted corn (remove kernels from cob)

Combine all ingredients except for the olive oil and corn kernels in a bowl of a food process until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil through the feeding tube while processor is running. This will create a consistency of mayonnaise when all the oil is added. It may need a little more to reach the consistency needed. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the roasted corn in the aioli. Can be store for up to a week in the refrigerator.

Corn Pancakes

3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 Tsp. baking powder

3/4 Tsp. salt

1 TBSP sugar

1 large egg separated (yolk slightly beaten) (egg white beaten stiff)

1 1/4 cup buttermilk

1 TBSP Canola or Olive Oil

1 jalapeno seeded, deveined, and chopped if heat desired)

1 Tsp. cilantro

1 ear roasted corn (remove kernels from cob)

1 Tsp. butter for cooking

Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk together the egg yolk, buttermilk, and oil in a medium bowl. Mix dry ingredients well with wet ingredients. Stir in corn. Gently fold in whipped egg.

Add a pat of butter to a griddle. Heat over medium heat. When the surface is hot pour 1/4 cup of batter to form 5 inch pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the top surface. Flip and cook the other side until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.

Poached Eggs (can use a medium over egg, yolk needs to be runny)

6 Eggs

2 TBSP vinegar/rice vinegar

Bring a large pot of water to almost a boil. Add the vinegar, which will help the eggs set.

Swirl the simmering water, and then gently crack each egg into a small bowl and release right above the surface of the water. This is very important in order to present them from breaking and to achieve proper consistency.

Remove the pot from the heart, cover and let stand until the egg whites are fully cooed and the egg looks like a smooth ball about 4 minutes. You want the yolk to be runny.

Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel lined plate.

To serve place the corn pancake on a serving plate, dollop about 1 TBSP of spring pea puree, top with poached egg (over medium egg) drizzle with roasted corn aioli. Top with sprigs of mint and black pepper.

Note you can make variations on this recipe

You can use mashed avocados in place of the peas

Add smoked salmon, Canadian Bacon, or half slices of bacon placed on top of pea puree or avocados.

Enjoy.

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes

Vegan Dinner for the 77th Golden Globes. Setting a dynamic dinner for the elite of Hollywood is always a challenge. This year for the first time the Golden Globes has asked the Beverly Hilton chefs to create a completely plant-based menu.

Vegan Golden Globes Dinner 4chion Lifestyle
Menu Golden Globe Awards

Vegan Menu Decision

The last year we have seen an increase in plant-based food from the Impossible and Awesome Burger. “For the first time the meal served to our guests will be entirely plant-based, a way to focus awareness on the need to countenance sustainable lifestyles as our world moves towards climate and environmental insecurity.” The menu has no meat or dairy in any dish. The Golden Globes takes the challenge and brings a star-studded menu.

King Oyster Mushrooms Vegan Dinner

Vegan Menu

The celebrities attending the Golden Globes this year will find a glamourous filling dinner. The menu includes:

  • The appetizer is chilled golden beet soup. This is prepared with shaved candy-striped beets, citrus oil, pistachio, micro chervil, and amaranth
  • The entrée will be “scallops” made from king oyster mushrooms, served with wild-mushroom risotto, roasted baby purple, and green brussels sprouts, globe carrots, and pea tendrils.
  • The dessert is a “Vegan Opera Dome,” with choco brilliance, praline gunaja crumble, caramelized hazelnuts, and passion crispy. 

Vegan Menu Changes

Executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi discusses making a beautiful cake without the use of gelatin, eggs, milk, or butter. This is a completely plant-based pastry. “It is a bit different when coming to pastries. You have to always learn new things,” Henzi states.

Executive chef Matthew Morgan says, “It is exciting to be a part of it. The statement that it is making is extremely important.” The menu looks to be as fancy as years past and the celebrities should have plenty to eat and drink.

7 Winter Fashion Trends to Keep On Your Radar

7 Winter Fashion Trends to Keep On Your Radar

It seems like only yesterday when the fashion world was having a field day with fall’s unapologetic florals, giant bags, and pointed shoes. But with winter now in full swing, we’re welcoming a new set of “It” clothes, some refreshed styles, and seasonal colors.

Whether you’re looking to jump on the bandwagon or simply need new outfit ideas, here are some winter fashion trends to keep on your radar.

Fair Isle

(Image Credit: Hypebeast)

Named after the tiny island in northern Scotland where it originated from, fair isle is a knitting technique used to create patterns with various colors. Despite its humble beginnings, fashion experts Creators Syndicate have labeled it as the pattern of the year. While typically found on sweaters, it can also be seen on turtlenecks, cardigans, and knit dresses.

Capes

[Image Credit: Harpers Bazaar]

Last winter, it was all about futuristic fashion and shiny fabrics, as seen in February’s New York Stock Exchange 2018 collection. This year, brands are still focusing on luxe and dramatics but with a twist. No longer reserved for comic books, capes have found their way to high-fashion runways and store racks. They’re actually easier to style than you think, like this cream cape from Goodnight Macaroon paired with skinny jeans and heels.

Leather Trench Coats

(Image Credit: Vogue)


Trench coats have always been a winter favorite, but we’re now seeing them take center stage as a statement piece, instead of ordinary outerwear. Take your cue from Amal Clooney who was spotted donning a trench coat, in full leather. Even if it came in a seemingly neutral brown, she proved that trench coats can very much elevate your entire outfit.

Structured Pants

Despite how tempting it is to live in your cozy pajamas in this cold weather, a sleek pair of pants will add something a little extra to your wardrobe. With all the bulky coats and slouchy sweaters you’ll be wearing, you’ll need to balance it out when it comes to your bottoms. These straight-leg pants from Woman Within come in a sophisticated yet casual silhouette that will look great with a loose top or outerwear. Bonus: they come in soft cotton to mimic the comfort of sweatpants, so no need to worry about feeling stiff.

Tonal Dressing

(Image Credit: WhoWhatWear)

If you’re not too keen on mixing and matching, then you can simply keep it streamlined with tonal colors. Just because it’s tonal, doesn’t mean you have to stick to monotone blacks and browns. You can totally pull off an all-pastel outfit if you want. The trick is to keep everything in the same color family, so you should try combining different shades of purple, green, red, or any other hue that’s popular this time of year.

Rubber Sole Boots

(Image Credit: Silk Fred)

With all that snow lining the sidewalks, heels are perhaps the most uncomfortable footwear choices you can make. Instead, it’s time to bust out the rubber sole boots, as they’re incredibly practical. Fashion writer Andrea Hannah explains that rubber soles are great at keeping water out, so feel free to dive into the snow as you please.

Fur Bags

(Image Credit: May Kool)

No other piece screams “holiday fashion” than fur garments. And this year, it’s all about fur bags. These statement pieces are incredibly chic and can instantly upgrade your look. If you don’t want to go for full fur, you can always go for accessories lined with shearling, with this purse from Chanel as a classic example.

And there you have it! Whether you’re the type to play with textures or keep it simple, this year’s winter trends will definitely have something for you. That way, you’ll be strutting into those holiday parties in style.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Sexy Hair ~ Knives Out Exclusive

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Sexy Hair ~ Knives Out Exclusive

Ben Stiller and Jamie Lee Curtis Golden Globes 4chion lifestyle Hairstyle
Ben Stiller and Jamie Lee Curtis

Sean James gives us insight into the trademark short hair of the beautiful and sexy Jamie Lee Curtis. He is the hairstyle for Curtis for the upcoming Rian Johnson film, Knives Out, and her 2019 Golden Globes red carpet phenomenon.

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Hairstyle LA Premier

Sean James, the hairstylist to the famous Jamie Lee Curtis, provides 4Chion Lifestyle an exclusive insight into her gorgeous hair. He states, “I’m so excited to share, the look I did for, Curtis for the LA premiere of Knives Out the megacast whodunnit thriller.
In the movie Curtis’ character, Linda Drysdale Thrombey, wears a bleach blonde platinum perfect look that I created for her at Matthew Preece Salon using Neo Bond hair protector, and Wella Blondor Toning with a mix of 9 level toners by shades EQ, it was styled on set with stylus hair care and FHI Heat tools supplied to the incredible hair and makeup team Luisa Abel makeup and Kelvin Trajan hair .
For Curtis’ red carpet look for the LA premiere last night, I used the chrome 2000 Blowdryer by FHI Heat and High Altitude Root Lift by Stylus Hair Care, round brushing it, to add volume and shape complimenting her beautiful face. To give hold the look and make sure it has volume and a punky attitude all night I used the ‘stay styled ‘ hair spray by Stylus Hair Care. Curtis’ favorite hairbrush is the FHI Heat Unbrush.”

Sean James Hair Stylist to the Celebrities

Sean James Hairstylist to the Celebrities

We first met James when he did a segment with FNL at YouTube space. He is often found in our seasonal beauty features. His passion is his talent and his talent is his passion. He creates a vision and makes that vision come to reality in hair. His ability to understand each person not just their hair but their personal style and personality makes his art as individual as those he works with.

James is from Australia and has settled in the beautiful area of Venice Beach. His talent has graced runways, Oscar-nominated films, televisions, a trusted panelist, and believes in giving back to the community.

He continues to increase his knowledge and talent with continued training with brands like L’Oreal, Redken, and Phyto University as well as product reviews. He even has talent in wig making. While he is busy with celebrities he still has time for his regular salon clientele. List of regular clients includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Hardwick, Al Yankovich, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Phil Keoghan, Eugene Levy, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, Teddy Thompson,  Rufus Wainwright, Chris Stills, and many others. 

Jamie Lee Curtis’

Curtis is a very talented actress we have covered on many occasions. She says about this film, “They will have a good time. A great movie. The puzzle pieces will come together in the delightful way of ‘I got this but then you don’t have it.’

She goes on to say, “Clearly this is a movie built for Thanksgiving weekend. If you want to ever make a movie about a dysfunctional family and then be able to take your dysfunctional family to see the movie, it’s this movie. It is a perfect family comedy.”

Sean James Hair stylist to the celebrites Jamie Lee Curtis 4chion lfiestyle
Jamie Lee Curtis Linda Character Poster

Her character, Linda Drysdale Thrombey, fashion and style for this film is an old school elegance. She centers the looks for this film around a Verdura Jewelry bracelet, seen in her poster for the film. The jewelry company founded in 1939 by Duke Fulco di Verdura, the jeweler is known for its timeless, elegant and distinctly original designs.

Thrombey, Curtis’ character in the film, is the eldest surviving child (is this a clue to the film??). She finds herself, much like real life, the center of the family, the cheerleader. A fun fact she lived in the kitchen, the center of the family life, of the home they filmed in for 2 months.

Curtis’ roles include Halloween (1978), Trading Places (1983), Perfect (1985) and A Fish Called Wanda (1988), True Lies (1994), for which she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance and many more.

Knives Out Teaser_Poster_rgb
Knives Out

Knives Out, A Rian Johnson Film, Synopsis

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fresh, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect.  When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a fun, witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

The movie release is Nov. 27, 2019. Check local listings for times and locations.

Beauty Tips For Autumn

Beauty Tips For Autumn

This is the beginning of a wonderful autumn season. The time for pumpkin, layers, parties, and great red carpet events. The insight to this season best beauty tips brought to you by the top in their industry. The best time to shine and show your beauty.

Hair Tips Sean James

Well, I want to first start with hair colors for fall, we are going to be seeing a lot of reds red browns, golden tones, bronde (A mix of brown and blonde highlights through brown hair). The latest trend of mushroom (ashier tones) highlighted hair should go into a rootier look with balayage vs foilyage technique.

On the red carpet, we are going to see big bouncy waves, the best way to get this look is the 1 1/4 “ curling iron by FHIheat. Center parts are back. Side parts too, use stylus hair care “stay put” To thicken up the hair. High Altitude by Stylus is great to use at the roots, or add a little “Toppik” hair fibers in your color.

The looks on the red carpet will be a lot of hair down. And classic waves with center-parted hair, like Taraji P Henson And Kim K. It’s going to be a fantastic award season.

Makeup Tips

Gia Klime, Hollywood makeup artist, just finished makeup for the Emmys’® Red Carpet has the best tips for your upcoming season parties and red carpet events.  

It’s all about the dewy skin on the red carpet. Mix 3 drops of a liquid highlighter into a white color, then into your foundation then use a dewy primer. Klime loves Clarins beauty balm flash, it tightens as it prepares for the makeup. It’s also very hydrating to apply primer first. Then mix the dewy drops into the foundation. Then use a dense brush and press into the skin all over do not use the brush, use circular motions, press, and pat. This way you get coverage without cake face.

It’s about the glow. Using a dewy setting spray. Klime loves NYX Professional Makeup Make Up Setting Spray Dewy Finish. Do this and you will look red carpet ready. Add the perfect red lip. My favorite Smashbox has the best universal red stays on all day. This never gets dry. And of course, lashes are a must.

Beauty Flash Balm Unisex Balm by Clarins is a fabulous primer. It is an excellent anti-aging and lifting a balm that brightens, tightens and eliminates signs of fatigue in a flash, celebrities love this, and total glowing and dewy skin.

Beauty Tips Tavao Palomin

Hot girl/boy summer is long gone. The fall season is here and this is the best trend you will come across. Say hello to the start of living your best life.

When it comes to beauty, throw all the rules away. There’s no better time than now to live your best life. Your rules, your way, your colors. We are trained to follow new beauty trends season by season. What color is in? What formula should I try? This season, we challenge everyone to try the one trend fits all. Wear what you want, when you want. If you prefer smoky eyes, go for it. If a bold lip is your thing, wear it with pride. If a tinted moisturizer is your go-to, apply it and go! New beauty products are releasing all the time to keep up with the constantly changing trends so this season make your own and wear what you want, what makes you comfortable, and bring out your inner beauty!

Just because we said to fall out of the makeup trends this season, you should always maintain and protect your skin. 

Make sure you’re applying your sunscreen daily. A favorite is the Supergoop Unseen SPF 40. The formula goes on clear so it’s great for all skin tones. It’s also lightweight so you can apply your moisturizer and makeup on top seamlessly. Buy it here https://amzn.to/33sMnyn

The best skincare in the world won’t suffice if you’re not applying it correctly. The PMD Pro is worth trying out. It’s a double-sided smart cleansing device that helps remove dirt and oil from within pores on one side while the other acts as an ActiveWarmth Facial Massage to help your skincare absorb deeper by using the SonicGlow technology and heat. The PMD cleans, lifts, firms, and tones your skin.  Buy it here https://amzn.to/2B8yk5d

Try these products and trends out this season. You’ll be glad you did!

Nail Tips Jenifer Winger

A great nail addition for having on hand or change from the toxic salon set of nails is Color Street. These are so fun and they are fabulous. I wore mine for over two weeks. You can get up to twenty nails done for each package. It is a great deal especially for little ones who want their nails done but cannot just sit still, exceptional for getting a rest from salon nails, gifts, or a night glam party. Gorgeous Ten by Jen has all the insight and specials for the upcoming glam season.

You are beautiful and bringing your beauty to each moment of life brightens your spirit and enlightens those around you. You are worth a few moments of self-care and reflection.

Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Emmys’® Governors Ball ~ Brilliance in Motion

Sunday is the 71st Emmys® Prime Time hostless award ceremony. The nominees and winners will be honored with an after-party, Brilliance in Motion, at the L.A. LIVE Event Deck. This will be an evening of exceptional food, talent, and drinks. You can even enjoy a glamourous evening at home.

Home Entertaining for the Emmys®

Emmys® Brilliance Party At Home

Entertaining is such always fun. There is no better time than the Emmys®. Celebrate your favorite actor/actress, streaming shows, and mini-series.

Create a great time that involves your senses. This will engage your guests. The food is one way to really bring this to light. You can create great courses that bring all five senses to the table (recipes at the end).

Decorating is always a lot of fun. The Governors Ball is using a rich palette of eggplant purple, magenta, coral, red, and Emmy gold! These are great colors for your invitations, table accents, and backdrops use scarfs or sheer fabrics.

Add fountains for just an added touch of sound. Crystals are a perfect addition to the table setting and capture the light from candles. Farmers’ Markets have beautiful flowers to use as a nice pop of color around the room. Add extra large pillows that can be used as sitting for the guest to sit while enjoying the show.

Have the evening be the formal attire. Then make a budget for the amount one can spend on the purchase of formal evening wear. Then have a golden trophy for the winner.

Gift bags for your guests as they leave is a nice surprise. You can include a personalized label bottle of wine (in Chandler AZ Down Time Wines creates personal labels), Fuji water, Lindt chocolates, and an Emmy® of their own.

This event is one big celebration covering three evenings of Emmys® nominees and winners.

Emmys® Recipes

Hor d’oeuvres
KOBE BEEF MEATBALLS WITH ROASTED TOMATO SAUCE AND
CREAMY BECHAMEL

Serves 16
2# Ground Kobe Beef
1# Ground Veal (can be substituted with ground pork as needed)
3 C Toasted Ciabatta bread
1 C Whole milk
2 T Ground Fennel Seed
2 T Ground Caraway Seed
2 T Garlic Powder
1 T Onion Powder
¼ C Salt
¼ C Chopped Parsley
¼ C Chopped Basil
METHOD: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a knife, remove the crust of ciabatta bread and tear the
remaining bread into small pieces. Drizzle the torn beard with olive oil and toast in oven until lightly
golden brown. While the bread toasts, mix the ground beef, veal, and all the dry spices in a large bowl.
When the bread is toasted and dry, remove from oven and allow to cool. Once the bread is cool enough to handle, crumble the bread into a separate bowl and cover with the whole milk; set aside until milk has been fully absorbed by the ciabatta. When the bread is fully hydrated, combine the bread mixture with the beef mixture, and add the fresh parsley and basil. Mix well by hand until fully incorporated. Form the mixture into 2oz balls and place onto a baking tray. Bake the meatballs in a hot oven until dark golden brown and fully caramelized, about 10 minutes. Once baked, immerse the meatballs into the tomato sauce completely and allow to simmer until fully cooked. Once cooked through the meatballs are ready to
eat but can be left in the simmer sauce to be served later. Serve warm with an ample drizzle of the bechamel sauce.
TOMATO SAUCE:
¼ C Extra Virgin olive oil
8 cloves Garlic, finely sliced for minced
½ EA White onion, finely diced
½ C Dry white wine
12 Leaves basil, chiffonade
1 can San Marzano tomatoes, crushed
1 t ground black Pepper
1 T Kosher salt
½ T Chili flake
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed cooking pot, warm olive oil over low heat. Once the oil is warm add the
sliced garlic and diced onion and allow to cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to ensure the onion and garlic
does not burn. When the onion and garlic are soft and fragrant, carefully add the white wine and reduce
to ¼. After the wine is reduced add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer, stirring often, until the
sauce is thickened and smooth, approximately 1 hour. Keep the heat on low and allow the sauce to simmer
slowly for best results.
BECHAMEL:
1 C Dry white wine
4 EA Thyme sprigs
2 EA Bay leaves, fresh if available
4 EA Garlic cloves, crushed
1 EA Shallot, sliced
1 tsp black peppercorn
¼ C All-purpose flour
¼ C Unsalted butter
½ C Whole milk
½ C Heavy cream
METHOD: In a heavy-bottomed saucepot place wine, thyme, bay leaves, garlic, shallot, and black
peppercorns, and simmer on low. Reduce the mixture to ¼ of the original volume. Once reduced, strain
the mixture and place the wine back into the cooking pot. Allow the wine to continue to reduce until
almost evaporated. Roughly chop the butter and add to the wine. Keeping the heat on low, allow butter to
fully melt and then whisk the flour into the butter and wine mixture to start the roux. Continue to whisk and
cook the roux until the smell of raw flour is gone, approximately ten minutes. Combine the whole milk and
heavy cream and slowly whisk into the roux watching for any lumps that may form. Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, adding more milk if bechamel becomes too thick.

Main Course
PRIME BEEF TENDERLOIN

Serves 12
1 EA Prime beef tenderloin
2 oz Unsalted butter
6 EA Thyme sprigs
4 EA Garlic cloves
Kosher salt
Ground black pepper
METHOD: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season beef tenderloin with salt and pepper on all sides. Over medium-high heat in a cast-iron pan, sear beef tenderloin until golden and caramelized on all sides. Add
butter, thyme and crushed garlic to the pan and baste the beef with the frothy melted butter. Once basted
place in oven and cook until medium-rare, approximately 15 minutes. The internal temperature should be roughly 125 degrees if using a meat thermometer. Remove from oven and allow the beef to rest for at least
10 minutes before cutting and serving.

WHITE CHEDDAR POTATO GRATIN

4# Russet potato, peeled and finely sliced
6 EA Shallot, finely sliced
6 EA Garlic cloves, chopped
2 C Whole milk
4 C Heavy cream
2 T Kosher salt
2 T Thyme leaves, chopped
6 oz White cheddar, grated
4 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
METHOD: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy-bottomed pot, sweat garlic and shallots until soft and fragrant. Add cream, milk, salt, and thyme leaves and reduce by half. While the milk and cream mixture is reducing, peel and slice the potatoes as thinly as possible and cover in cold water to prevent browning. Prepare an 8×10 inch heavy-bottomed casserole dish with cooking spray or butter. Arrange one layer of the sliced potatoes into the bottom of the casserole dish. Carefully cover the potatoes with the reduced cream. Sprinkle with the white cheddar and parmesan. Place the second layer of potatoes and again cover with cream mixture and grated cheeses.

Dessert
BUTTERSCOTCH BUDINO

Yield: 10 portions
1 cup Dark brown sugar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cup heavy cream
1.5 cup whole milk
8 ea. large egg yolks
4 tablespoon cornstarch
4 tablespoon unsalted butter
Method

  1. Combine the brown sugar, water, and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, place the pan on the stove over medium heat, cook until the caramel is dark, takes about 14 minutes.
  2. Standing back with caution add the cream and milk to the caramel. This will make the mixture seize up at first, but if you keep whisking and let it heat back up, it will combine. Bring the mixture back to boil, then turn down the heat to medium.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch.
  4. Temper the caramel mixture with eggs yolks and cornstarch by adding a cup caramel mix to the eggs mixture, whisking constantly, then pour the egg mixture back into the pan.
  5. Increase the heat to bring this mixture to a boil and keep whisking as the custard thickens from the cornstarch, should take two minutes.
    6 Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter.
  6. Strain the custard through a fine strainer to remove any big lumps that might have formed and portion the custard into ramekins.
  7. Cover the ramekins with plastic wrap and chill the custard for a least 4 hours…it’s best when you make a day ahead

This is a great place to meet with a high school friend and his beautiful wife. We enjoyed breakfast at Ranch House Grille. It is a very local place. Many entering the grill knew other patrons and shared stories of their families and community. It is a wonderful meal. Large portions, good café coffee, and great hash browns are found here.

Joe’s Cafe Breakfast

Orem Utah Reunion Breakfast

Meeting up with my dear friend Lisa Sherman is like we never missed even one day, even though it had been a few decades. Lisa and I have known each other since we were three. We ran the neighborhood streets as two determined little girls could. We enjoy breakfast at Joe’s Cafe. The food is so delish. Lisa even enjoyed the grits. A dish she is convinced she did not like. Joe said, “You will love them. Nothing comes between your lips and my grits.” It is so wonderful catching up with Lisa after all these years.

3 Sisters Cafe Breakfast

3 Sisters Cafe

The first food stop of the trip is 3 Sisters Cafe in Indianapolis, Indiana, in business for 20 years. They serve a large choice of elegant breakfasts from sweet to savory and great lunch menu as well.

They have great beverages (no alcohol) with flair. I enjoyed the turmeric and ginger iced tea. It is a great flavor not too sweet or sugary. The brunch is perfect a great hollandaise sauce over Scottish lox, poached eggs, fresh tomato, and locally made English muffins with caviar on top. The English muffin is fresh with a nice sourdough flavor. The hollandaise sauce is perfect with just a little heat. The porridge is a new experience. It is creamy with a hint of cinnamon.

Courier Café

The Courier Café Urbana

The Courier Café brings Champaign history and old Victorian styling in the decor. The main dining room has:

  • A large palace chandelier from the Opera House in Erie Pennsylvania
  • The cash register is  the first electric cash register
  •  The courier clock pendulum filled with mercury makes the time keeping right
  • The stained glass comes from a Danville church predating the Civil War
  • The Pullman lamps light the aisle for passengers on the Pullman railroad cars
  • The brass chimes a gift from George Malford, a Nickelodeon Maker, they are steamed powered

The Café’s name is for the Courier newspaper that operated for decades in the building. The building is almost lost to fire and remained empty for decades. In 1980, the current owners began remodeling and opened for business on November 10, 1980. They are a farm to table restaurant with the garden and bees on the property for the freshest ingredients.

The menu is a hearty all American menu with breakfast served daily until 11 AM then lunch and dinner menu until closing. The breakfast is traditional eggs, omelets, fantastic pancakes, and hash browns. Their coffee is fresh ground daily and they have special blends. The lunch/dinner menu is hearty with a ribeye sandwich, fries, soups, and steak. The food has that home cooked look and feel. They do have a few items for vegetarians including breakfast sausage. They do have one special treat “Courier water this is sparkling water from deep below the café. It is a great place for large parties and a sense of the community in Champaign.

Scone City

"<yoastmark

Scone City located in Wicker Park is wonderful for a morning after bar hopping or late night in Chicago. Jessica and Tim Canning along with chef Laurie McNamara took on the endeavor in a specialized sweet and savory scone menu. This place is a perfect stop as my sister Cherie is heading to the airport to return to her family in Idaho. It is so wonderful sharing this experience with here. Seeing places and enjoying the cross-country journey. I truly miss her every day. She enjoyed a sweet blueberry w/ lemon glaze scone she says, “It is delicious!! Sweet. Soft. Perfection!!! Soooo tasty.” They have savory scones as well. I enjoyed a hot Vanilla Bean Latte with the house-made vanilla syrup. It is a perfect start to a day of exploring Chicago..

Kanela Breakfast in Chicago

The last morning of the road trip in the Midwest is brunch at Kanela, the Greek name for Cinnamon. This restaurant place is Wicker Park neighborhood on a street with many older shops. It is a great place, voted best in Chicago by USA Today,  for a Sunday morning brunch. The coffee tops and wonderful after an evening at Bangers and Lace.

Brunch includes California Benedict and Fried Egg Sandwich this is an exceptional meal. The hollandaise sauce perfection with a nice touch of heat, the poach egg picture perfect. The sandwich is fabulous with the chili aioli brings the flavors together. The seasoned potatoes nicely cooked not too soft or undercooked. It is a nice brunch with my sister. We do agree that this is a great place for brunch.

Milk Bar NYC
MIlk Bar NYC Road Trip 4Chion Lifestyle 1
Milk Bar NYC

Super excited to try crack pie and coffee for breakfast. This is a planned find in NYC. Watching Chef’s Table on Netflix. I knew I needed to try Milk Bar. This is Christine Tosi’s and is part of the Manhattan-based Momofuku restaurant. This is my first stop in the morning. The little shop has great cookies, cakes, pies, and bagel bombs. I order an iced coffee, bagel bomb with spinach, and crack pie. The bagel bomb is warm and filled with spinach and cheese. It is a nice bite for the start of touring NYC.  I save the crack pie for a little later, but it is delicious. The filling is something like a custard, but buttery. The oat crust is light and flaky. This is a must stop and see.
