Three delicious reasons to stay home this long weekend

Chrissy Dupé

Long weekend season is nearly over. That’s right, people! Be alert but not alarmed. This Queen’s birthday long weekend is your last chance for a while to kick back and put your feet up.

Why not avoid the weekend crowds and the winter chill and invite some friends over to your place for a leisurely weekend brunch-fest?

These scrumptious DIY brunch recipes from little food blog have got you covered. There’s one for each day of the long weekend. So crank up the heater, get those fluffy slippers at the ready and get your brunch on.


Ease into the long weekend Salted caramel hotcakes with coconut and caramelised banana and it’s one the whole family will love. 



Nothing says Sunday breakfast better than Mini croque monsieur (and madame, complete with quail egg), perfect for that early morning brekkie or the long, lazy brunch.



That’s right, there’s still one more day to enjoy before heading back to work (but it’s ok because there’s only four days). Forget going out (it’s a public holiday after all) and instead enjoy homemade Eggs bennies with the perfect Hollandaise sauce. Trust me, after you eat these you’ll never want to eat out for breakfast again.

Chrissy is a lover of lists and a self-confessed control freak. Her mission is to help other women with a strong need to be in control learn how to harness the power of their inner control freak and use it for good. Having lived through the devastation that being control freak without focus brings, and going out the other side stronger, Chrissy developed a series of hands-on, zero 'fluff' programs to help women control their freak, instead of letting it run them into the ground. Her philosophy is based on the little-known fact that control freaks are actually born for greatness... and that without them, the world would fall into disorganised chaos.
