    Mimosas and cinnamon toast casseroles for all, hurrah!

    (I have a cinnamon-toasty cake thing to post this week too…)

    Sorry to hear that you’ve been feeling homesick! But it sounds like you’ve got some great company there. I’ve never had a brigadiero but I am feeling the urge to consume one strongly!! 😀

    Oh brigadeiros, yum! But more shockingly, has hell frozen over? That photo of you looking at some orange juice concoction, with an expression that seemingly indicates affection… mind. does. not. compute. Welcome to the dark side, lady. Does that mean any future devilfruit recipes that may pop up in my blog will be met with less revulsion?

    Great post Hannah … and it brought you closer to us. Breakfast casseroles! Wow! I thank Kristy for looking out for you at a holiday time.

    As for Mimosa … I guess you can’t go wrong with champagne.

    Win one for the orange!! This is a very exciting development indeed. Now I just have to find a way to translate this into dessert, and maybe we can win you over to the side of the orange one and for all. I do have a mimosa tiramisu in Vegan Desserts, you know… (

    You had orange?!?!?! Mind. Blown.

    happy easter hannah – glad to hear you have had a glorious easter breakfast in the company of good people and a pink typewriter – and yes I am amazed to see you looking so lovingly into a glass of orange juice – must be all that snow turning your tastebuds weird 🙂

  8. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    That looks like a stupendously delicious Easter brunch. I am happy to hear that you and orange have found a way to talk to each other. Communication is key in any relationship, even those with fruits.

    Nice spread. So glad I don’t have that issue with mixing OJ with other things. That’s a new one on me…like the Lupini Beans and enjoying a poem.

    Ah, I was wondering what the devil was with the oranges, then read your comments and I totally agree with you! Orange juice is great on it’s own, but I don’t really like it with my sweets. Like. That’s what chocolate is for surely.

    Sounds like you’ve had an absolutely lovely easter, French toast casserole sounds pretty epic…

  11. Catherine

    Alright, you really did hit your head when you fell a few weeks ago, didn’t you? No other explanation for the orange juice is apparent.

    But I’m really commenting to express my envy of that glorious breakfast – it looks incredible. I’m hungry just eyeing the pictures…

    Truly you must have felt very loved and very happy during Easter to have tried a *shudder* mimosa 😉
    Glad you had a good one!

    Happy Easter!

  13. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    The fact that you spontaneously referred to mimosa on my blog makes me think that not only have you been converted to the devil fruit, but it has somehow caught you in its grip and is not ever going to let go 😛 I am delighted you found a way to stomach orange (although was interested to read above that you are actually ok with orange juice alone – I am not, but like it in chocolate and other things), and even more delighted that you had such a wonderful Easter day. Bonus points for the sunshine, too!

    I also love that these brigadeiros, in contrast to your brightly coloured version from 2010, look a bit like they are sitting in snow.

    Its great to read about your lovely Canadian Easter! Good food and friends are the perfect combo for any holiday. It took me a minute to realize was devilfruit is!!! LOLOLOL. Maybe this means you’ll try orange choccies one day?! 😉

  15. hungryandfrozen

    Sounds like a lovely time. Hooray for heart-soars and good people! And I will keep mimosas in mind for the next occasion that we’re spending time together…

  16. msihua

    Awww yay for not being a mopey dopey Rake Sway party girl! And those balls.. look like Lamington balls!

  17. Hotly Spiced

    I love the old radio and typewriter in that photo. And if you were caught ‘lifting’ that typewriter, I wonder what country the Canadians would send you to. How lovely to have so many invites for Easter – nothing worse than being on your own at a special time of year xx

  18. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Oh! Special. I love this. Those 2 casseroles, the cinnamon sugar french toast & english muffin one – AHHHHHHH I want them. Glad you had many lovely invitations. Of course you did, though 🙂 You’re just so lovely!

    Wait did you say BACON CASSEROLE? and FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE? Who needs family when you’ve these to hug and hold!!! 😀

  20. Sarah

    Oh I loooove brigadeiros! A Brazillian friend made them for me once – so delicious! I’m sure your hosts would have been thrilled!

    But for me, I want dem breakfast casseroles!! 🙂

  21. Gmasydney

    Convict roots? Convict roots! Not on my side!! Seriously, though, we’re so glad you had a happy Easter. We did too though we missed you but be assured, we toasted ‘Our family, wherever they are.’ XXOO

  22. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Aww this looks lovely! It’s funny because this was my first holiday not spent with a family. When I was travelling abroad I still spent it with a lovely family of a good friend. While it wasn’t my family, it was so nice to be welcomed into their celebrations. SO this Easter was strange for me. Good thing there was lots of chocolate 😉

    Devilfruit and champagne go hand-in-hand. 😉
