Mother’s Day Brunch: Chorizo and Egg-Topped Polenta

20 May

I know that Mother’s Day was last weekend for most of you (and a few months ago for those who celebrate “Mothering Sunday“), but I didn’t have time with all that was happening last weekend to post this recipe.

This woman is an absolute angel, coming up with all sorts of allergy-free foods for her children, even down to packing them a lunch so that they can attend their friends’ parties without starving to death or having an allergy attack.
