Although brunch has always been “a thing” it has taken on a new status of late, food establishments cashing in on the trend with hipster menus, bloody Mary bars, craft cocktails, blini experiences and more! It is a fun, often lighter and whimsical way to entertain at home too!

Regardless of your family size (even solo) meal planning can be essential to making sure you are able to have a healthy and quick meal even on the busiest weeknights. All it takes is a road map, a little help from the store, and an open mind in how to morph the same ingredient into something new and fresh. Here Chef Kelli has taken family staples such as chicken and meatloaf and shows you ways to turn them into completely different meals. Don’t be afraid to take a short cut and use a rotisserie chicken from the store. Additionally, use your freezer to your advantage…if you are making 1 meatloaf it takes just a few ticks longer to make 4 and freeze the rest for a variety of uses.
