Oh how I love shoes, all types of shoes, heels, flats, boots, sandals, espadrilles, oxfords, wedges, ballerinas, platform, wellies ….. You name it, I have the perfect pair. Rumor has it, that I store more shoes in my closet than a centipede has legs. An unsubstantiated rumor, bien sûr..

Gladiator sandals, the coolest alternative to heels in summer, are my go-to warm weather shoes. The options are endless (Balenciaga multi-strap and Givenchy leopard sandals are must haves) but the Guiseppe Zanotti lace ups from 2010 are flat-out favorites. Terribly chic yet comfortable (a feat not easily accomplished) these strappy sandals look equally fabulous paired with a summer dress or skinny jeans (a cross functionality shoe should be on every traveler’s packing list). I like them so much I had to track down a second pair (an almost “mission impossible” two years later). The golden bronze color takes you effortlessly from day to night. To prove the point, I have worn them with an exquisitely embroidered caftan to a wedding in Calcutta and have happily and confidently strolled through Via Veneto in Rome (after all when in Rome do like the Romans do  ...)

I rue the day when, inevitably perhaps, the fashion magazines will declare this Greco-Roman trend passé but I have a feeling I will always have a soft spot in my heart for this style and in my rumored “too large” shoe closet.

DAT SCHMACHT NO MEI! (Thou shalt brunch ..)

Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch typically eaten between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekends.

Brunch is my favorite meal of the week. The combination of sweet and savory paired with an alcoholic beverage and/or coffee conjures up images of lazy afternoons with family and friends, lounging at home, socializing at our favorite local hangouts or enjoying a leisurely brunch-in-bed.

Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite brunch recipes: Open-faced eggs Florentine accompanied by a Stork Club cocktail (I like to substitute the standard fare of Mimosas and Bloody Marys with a more “interesting” drink)

Copyright © 2012 TIMELESS PIECES,LLC. All rights reserved

Open faced Eggs Florentine
Serves 6
(Original recipe by Katie Lee)

½ cup Ricotta cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
six ½-inch (1,27 cm) thick slices of crusty bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
6 large eggs
6-8 oz. (170-220 grams) steamed and drained baby spinach (about 1 cup)
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C)
  2. In a bowl, combine ricotta and parmesan. Place bread slices on baking sheet; spread with softened butter and equal amounts cheese mixture. Bake until cheese is bubbly and bread is crisp, 8 to 10 minutes
  3. While bread is baking, fry eggs sunny-side up
  4. Top each slice with steamed spinach and a fried egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve!

Stork club cocktail (my favorite mix via drinksmixer slightly modified)
(1 serving)

1 1/2 oz. (45 ml) gin
1/2 oz. (15 ml) triple sec
1/4 oz. (7.5 ml) fresh lime juice 
1 oz. (30 ml) fresh orange juice 
1 dash Angostura bitter (I serve it without the bitter and it still tastes great)

Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of lime or an orange peel, et voilà!
