This week’s #FoodFriday will appeal to all those who love a good brunch!
These recipes are courtesy of “The Cookbook According to St. Paul’s” by the Paulist Women’s Club* at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Community, the parish we serve in Los Angeles. (We recently rediscovered this gem of a cookbook created in 1979.)
Enjoy trying these delicious dishes!
