Friday Fooday

Happy Friday lovebugs!

This weekend I'm heading home to Philadelphia and I couldn't be happier. It's good to road trip and force the BF to enjoy my playlists of BSB, Britney, etc.

Lady C Cognac Cocktail
2 ounces C by Courvoisier
1 ounce Courvoisier Rosé
3/4 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce Champagne
Cinnamon, for garnish
Orange zest, for garnish

Shake first 5 ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into two Martini glasses and top with Champagne. Sprinkle very lightly with cinnamon. Garnish with orange zest.

Brussel Sprout & Potato Hash
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 5 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and rosemary; cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in hash browns, salt and pepper. Spread into an even layer. Cook, undisturbed, for 4 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in Brussels sprouts, spread back into an even layer and cook, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes and returning to an even layer, until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes total. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
  3. Meanwhile, bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a Dutch oven. Reduce to a gentle simmer. Break an egg into a small bowl, submerge the bowl’s lip in the water and slide the egg in. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Cook for 4 minutes for soft set, 5 minutes for medium set and 8 minutes for hard set. Transfer the eggs to a clean dish towel to drain. Serve the eggs over the hash.
