When you think of French Toast, what comes to mind? For me, its the delicious albeit unhealthy breakfast that you have to sit over the stove to cook. So if you are cooking this for a crowd, you won’t get any time visiting with anyone. And depending on how you fry it, the calories can really add up fast.
So it’s time for a recipe renovation!!! We’re changing up how you cook French Toast, along with some of the ingredients to reduce calories and infuse flavor~!!! And the product of this is my Healthy, Baked Cinnamon Sugar French Toast!!! And it has become a staple in our home. I love that it packs more protein than standard pancakes, is super easy to make and super delicious! Definitely a winning combination!
Do you ever get stuck when Valentine’s Day comes around, looking for ideas that aren’t so cheesy or cheap looking? With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I went on the hunt for some fun ideas for decor, gifts and projects. Looking for DIY ideas that were a little more elegant, not so cheap looking, and ones that were very doable yet affordable! AND, I found some wonderful ideas!! In fact, I had intented to do a post with around 10 ideas; then that grew to 20, and then 30. Well, then I figured I might as well do 101 IDEAS~!!! There were too many awesome ideas and actually ones that I’d love have in my decor year-round!!! (Yes, I kinda do love hearts, pink and red. I’m cheesy like that)
The wonderful thing about most (if not all) of these projects, is that you can pretty much get all the supplies you need at your local dollar store, or dollar section of your local craft store!!! I have to say, after seeing all of these amazing projects, I’m gaining a new-found respect for dollar stores~!!!
Do you ever get stuck in a rut when it comes to making dinner? Feeling like you are making the same recipes, or are bored with your standard dinner routine?
Well this meaty, pasta sauce recipe is a flavorful and fun twist on a dinnertime staple! Its Pepperoni Spaghetti – a slow cooked, hearty, flavor-rich tomato based sauce over pasta!! This recipe is as easy, as it is versatile!! The way I’ve prepared it is in a slow cooker, but you could just as easily cook it over the stove if you are pressed for time. And this also makes a wonderful sauce to use in your lasagne, which will JAZZ it up!!! THIS is comfort food at its best!!!
Have you ever had Falafel before? If not, you are missing out!! They are these little balls of yumminess!!! But more precisely, they are made up of ground chickpeas, coupled with amazing spices, then deep fried (or baked). Once cooked, they are put inside a pita alongside condiments such as hummus, tzatziki, feta cheese, onions, pickles, tomatoes and (if you like spice) jalapenos!!! They are a Middle-Eastern delicacy and one we grew up with and adore!!!
