Vegan Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast

Calling all French Toast Lovers! Especially the lovers who love it but can’t get past the strong egg taste! This one is for you! My Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast recipe is one that I’m so excited to share because this has been an ongoing issue for me. I love french toast but I dislike eggs no matter how you make it. Though eggs is just a single component of what makes french toast, it can sometimes end up being the star of it. I never realized that till I started going out for weekly brunches. I would order French toast at various restaurants and would be so turned off by the overbearing egg taste that I avoided ordering French toast completely for a few years. Until I came across an egg-less version at a local restaurant and fell in love. The restaurant’s french toast was chia-based which to me wasn’t the best visually but at the root of it all the french toast was vegan.

It’s my favorite time of the year, Fall! And with the start of fall means all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Though there’s not much of a weather difference in south Florida yet it doesn’t mean that I have to wait on the seasonal flavors of the season. So to spice things up a bit but to also keep things cool, my mornings have been a mix of my favorite Coconut Yogurt Kefir Chia Pudding with a quick pumpkin-spiced apple topping that is great as is or warmed.

Vegan Chipotle Lentil and Sweet Plantain Tacos

I’ve never met a taco I didn’t like! But I also never really venture too much outside of what I’m not used to. I’ve tried many vegan and plant-based food but when it comes to tacos I don’t go out the black bean spectrum of tacos.  I’m a creature of habit and when I love something I stick to it. So when I ventured out and whipped these chipotle lentil plantain tacos up I was amazed at how good these were and mad that I didn’t make these sooner. Continue Reading…

Summer Fruit, Nuts and Muesli Toast Charcuterie board with Brown Butter Langostino Lobster Rolls

Is it me? Or does it seem like the summer months are zooming by? It literally feels like its still March, at least in my mind it does. But it’s mid-July and that means in another month or so we will be in Fall.  So this past weekend I decided to throw my annual but not so annual backyard picnic for me and my family. Backyard picnics mean charcuterie board to me so I definitely knew that Continue Reading…

Lemon Pepper Spicy Honey Butter Cauliflower Wings

I’ve been craving cauliflower wings for some time now and with this quarantine and social distancing happening, going out to a restaurant is the last thing I want to do. So after a recent trip to Trader Joes for my favorite seasonings ( 21 seasoning salute and onion salt) and produce, I decided to make my own. But instead of making my General Tso Cauliflower wings, I decided to make Lemon Pepper Spicy Honey Butter Cauliflower Wings. This was an ambitious attempt but it came out great and was pretty simple to do. Continue Reading…
