I'm not big on breakfast food, but since brunch is a beautiful hybrid of breakfast and lunch, I'll take it. It's the hip thing to do every Sunday morning after a night out, but it's also an expensive treat. Bottomless mimosas already spike up the bill, but add on the fancy crab cake benedict and you're paying about $30 on that meal alone. Nooooo thank you!

Luckily, people are nice enough to share some bougie brunch recipes on the web. Cooking brunch is a great way to gather your friends for a nice Sunday afternoon of chitchat without having to pay tax and tip. Let's get on it!
