i LOVE brunch. it's my favorite meal of the day. i don't care how cliched it is or how many sex and the city episodes mention it. it's perfect and new york has perfected it. where else are the streets deserted before noon on a sunday and then instantly flooded moments after? since everyone is freaking out about the economy (including me), i've been making a concerned effort to cook it more at home and eat it out less.

i've recently jumped on the corn meal train thanks to a friend's brunch cooked at her place (see picture above). last week she made cilantro and onion corncakes, which were basically hush puppies cooked in a pan rather than deep fried. she served them with black beans, scrambled eggs, cheese, guacamole and salsa. they were awesome and inspired today's cornmeal pancakes.
