Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw said it best in her ode to brunch: “There are very few things this New Yorker loves as much as Sunday brunch. You can sleep until noon and still get eggs anywhere in the city.” Still very unsure as to how Carrie managed to afford weekly brunches and a closet full of designer clothes in a New York City apartment, so we think she’d have appreciated a few homemade brunch options that are every bit as satisfying as the ones from your favourite restaurant. Invite some friends around, pop some bubbly for the mimosas and ease into the most perfect — and decidedly budget-friendly — brunch at home!
