Today is Mother’s Day and my youngest daughter started cooking yesterday. She baked a strawberry chocolate brownie with roasted almonds, and in the morning she began preparing a festive breakfast.

At first, she made a cocktail with a tequila, strawberry, and mint. Then cooked Benedict eggs,

 on a toasted beigle with smoked salmon on top, and homemade hollandaise sauce.

She also made a small appetizer with cucumbers, cream cheese, and smoked salmon.

She came up with the recipe herself. I think this dish is very suitable for cocktail parties! Note that the measurements come from improvisation so it is best that you follow your own taste.
