My 1st Allrecipes FB Live:
"Friends with Benedicts"

Allrecipes - Friends with Benedicts -- The Perfect DIY Benedict Brunch Bar

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I absolutely LIVE for a weekend brunch, so I was thrilled I had the opportunity to represent my company, Allrecipes, and host our brunch-themed Facebook Live! I was joined in the Seattle AR Kitchen by the lovely food blogger Holly Haines, creator of "From My Impossibly Tiny Kitchen" and we slayed the perfect DIY Benedict Brunch Bar.

Between the poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, a lot of people have felt overwhelmed and shied away from making benedicts at home. As someone who has worked in the Allrecipes office for 3+ years, I've grown to enjoy cooking and trying recipes outside of my comfort zone -- and the idea of poaching eggs definitely fell under the "feels too intimidating to try on my own" category. Using Holly's recipes totally demystified the process and made the poached eggs and sauce attainable to recreate at home, on my own. I swear these were all SUPER easy! Don't believe me? Just watch the video!

It was peak #BlackGirlMagic.

On top of that, black women are still underrepresented in media, so I applaud AR for seeing the beauty in diversifying our on-camera talent. Representation matters, so I'm hoping this is the beginning of something new for Allrecipes.

All of the recipes we made are now available on the site. Be sure to tag @Allrecipes and use the hashtags #Brunchworthy and #FriendswithBenedicts so we can see all of your lovely brunch creations.
