This week, it's about breakfast and brunch ideas, and upcoming beer events! Here's what's dishing on the blogs we follow:

When thinking of breakfast, granola inevitably comes to mind. Culinary Cory also had granola on his mind, and made two weeks-worth of crunchy Everyday Granola in 30 minutes. On the other hand, the Brown Eyed Baker whipped up a big batch of Maple-Almond Granola with Dried Fruit for purely snacking reasons! Whether to pour it over yogurt in the morning or to snack on it throughout the day, homemade granola is always a great choice!

If you're not in the mood for sweet, crackly deliciousness for breakfast, try the tasty Slow Cooker Sausage Breakfast Casserole that Katy put together in her BakingDomesticityandAllThingsMini kitchen, and then enjoy the perfect brunch cocktail, a Brunch Time Tomato Shrub Spritzer, that Linda crafted at Dinner Plan-it.

If you have a free afternoon, take a stab at the L.C. Greenwood-Smoked Chicken with Apple Ginger Coleslaw that Liz grilled at Stiller Snacks. But if you prefer something lighter, Yum Yum's Green Beans with Walnuts & Lemon Vinaigrette and the Cashew Lime Kale Chips that Leah baked in her Brazen Kitchen are fantastic options!

Finally, on the Pittsburgh restaurant scene, D&T: in the burgh dined at Soba; Yum Yum ventured to BOhem Bistro; Dan from Pizza Walk with Me checked out DiFara's Pizza in Brooklyn, N.Y.; and the girls from eatPGH will attend the Togather Books & Beer: Foodies of Pittsburgh event on Oct. 25 at the Pittsburgh Public Market. Togather Books & Beer is part of the The Brooklyn Brewery Mash series, a nationwide interactive tour of food, music, literature, and beer!

See you here next week!
