Spring is (technically) here, but it doesn’t feel like it! Especially with another snow storm making its way through (we are NINE inches and counting so far here!).

Eggs benedict is my FAVORITE thing to order when I go out for brunch! It’s so good, and each restaurant does it a little differently. I love any eggs benedict with seafood incorporated into the recipe – my favorite EVER was at a small café in Nova Scotia that server lobster eggs benedict. It was…
