Breakfast in Bed (a V-Day round-up)

Breakfast has long been my favourite meal of the day. I make a point of eating something special each morning, but the weekends are a perfect time to linger with a little more coffee, warm pancakes or toasty waffles, or experiment with a new omelette concoction.  Since Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend this year, the timing couldn’t be better to treat yourself or the one(s) you love to a little bit of homemade love. This post is an ode to glorious breakfast! And breakfast in bed never hurt no one.
