Here is an apology….

Good morning guys!  I know I have been on a hiatus for a several weeks now.  It wasn’t intentional, I promise!  To be honest I was sick (still am) a few weeks ago with nasty allergy/sinus stuff……you know since Louisiana decided to start spring in February and bloom!  Then I went on a cruise for some much needed R&R.  Once docking back in LA – yep you guessed it!  More sinus/allergy crap because I was back in the land of pollen.

So while I had intentions of posting, I just wasn’t feeling it!  Seeing as my little blog here is hobby only and not monetized, thankfully I didn’t feel the pressure to post.  So I took the time I needed to get back to me 🙂

So in my attempt to offer you guys a sincere apology I am going to share a recipe with you!  Here are a few of my favorite things.

A little Breakfast……..

Pear & Mozzarella Stuffed French Toast

  • 2 slices cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread
  • 1/2 small pear, sliced thin
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • juice sweetened jam (I use Crofter’s juice sweetened super fruit spread…..awesome!)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1T almond milk
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • coconut butter
  1. Preheat griddle and spray with non-stick spray
  2. Mix the egg white, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a shallow dish
  3. Spread the jam on one slice of the bread, layer pair slices, layer on the cheese, and place 2nd slice of bread on top.
  4. Carefully dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture.
  5. Grill until golden brown on both sides and cheese melts

A little snack……….

Cowboy Cookies

  • 1+1/3c unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1t baking soda
  • 1/4t salt
  • 1 + 1/3c rolled oats
  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1/2c white sugar/turbinado sugar/organic sugar (yeah you get the point)
  • 1/2c chopped pecans
  • 1c semi-sweet chocolate chips (if you are making jar cookies then you stop here)
  • 1/2c (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1t vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350*, and spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray
  1. Mix together the butter, egg, and vanilla
  2. Stir in the cookie mix (or remaining ingredients if not from a jar mix)
  3. Roll the mixture into ball with hands and place two inches apart on cookie sheet
  4. Bake in oven for 11-13 minutes, cool on a cooling rack

Of course you will want to hide these cookies because they are just that darn good.  I love to have them when they are still warm with a nice glass of almond milk 🙂

All three of the above recipes are things that I really enjoy making this time of year, and my kiddos love them too!  Please enjoy and comment below if you try them!
