We wait all winter long for the promise of summer. As spring slips by in the blink of an eye, summer arrives in all its abundant glory, along with sultry nights, backyard barbecues, sunny vacations and, best of all, leisurely late-morning brunches.
The best part of hosting a summer brunch is celebrating what the season provides, from bright berries, fresh tomatoes and crisp beans to spicy peppers, sweet cherries and a vast array of nutrient-rich greens.
So hit the farmers market, set the table on the porch and gather your friends for a scrumptious Sunday brunch brimming with seasonal flavors. Today, we are brunching with bagels.
