easter brunch at the beach

this easter, we have a full house with my grandparents visiting from arizona. it also happens to be my grandmother's birthday! we decided to celebrate both occasions with a boozy brunch and birthday cake. on holidays, my family usually eats an early dinner meal but since we're at the beach, we didn't want to be stuck in the kitchen all day. brunch was a great decision! we made our favorite breakfast dishes including scrambled egg and sausage casserole and blueberry crumble, then toasted over mimosas and bellinis [screwdrivers as well].

after brunch, we headed to the beach to enjoy the weather and play some beach golf. it's days like this when I really need a one piece swim suit.

an abundance of fruit: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, honeydew
almond cake

classic cheesy scrambled egg and sausage casserole - always a hit!

warm blueberry crumble coffee cake with amazing brown sugar topping

my first time to make ina garten's lemon bars. I will definitely make these again! I topped with quartered lemon slices and raspberries.
