Rhubarb French Toast

Happy Mother’s Day! Do I ever have a recipe for all the moms out there today! It’s seasonal, sophisticated, beautiful, and tastes absolutely delicious! My recipe for Rhubarb French Toast is a great way to greet your mom, or any mom (fur-moms included) this Mother’s Day. For this special holiday, I decided to make French Toast. What mom doesn’t love French toast?! It’s fluffy, warm, and sweet and makes you feel great inside. While my classic French Toast recipe is always a hit, I decided to add a few extra special ingredients for this occasion. My Twist(s) on a Classic First, I decided to top my French Toast with a delicious Rhubarb Sauce. Apart from the fact that my HUGE rhubarb plant needed a bit of a trim, I knew this would be perfect since rhubarb is tart and would offset the sweet maple syrup perfectly. Plus, I can’t get over that pink colour! All I had to do was chop it up, and stew it in a pot with water and a dash of sugar. …

Black Sesame Almond Milk

As you can see, I am starting this year off on a very colourful note…. just kidding! While this drink may look a little peculiar, my entire household can vouch that this is one of the best nut milks I have made to date.

It’s a bit outside the box, but trust me, you will want to give this healthy recipe for Black Sesame Almond Milk a try! Making Homemade Almond (and other nut) Milk I use almond milk throughout the week in many breakfast meals, but I find myself so busy and on-the-go that I often rely on store-bought almond milk. The brand I purchase is pretty good, and it has the fewest additives and preservatives from what I have found. However, when I made a batch of almond milk from scratch, I am always taken back at how good it is! Rarely do I sit back and gulp down a …

Honeyed Greek Yogurt with Blueberry Jam

#BCBlueberryWeek continues today with a healthy, blueberry-filled breakfast recipe. This recipe for Honeyed Greek Yogurt with Blueberry Jam is so sweet and delicious that it could almost be a healthy dessert rather than a breakfast! Even though this is a simple and straightforward recipe, the combination of ingredients are set to stand the test of time. Honey, lemon and blueberries are commonly used in breakfast recipes and are considered a classic combination for a reason. Yep..those are real blueberry leaves! I opted to add the honey and lemon directly into the Greek yogurt, rather than the blueberry jam itself so that the flavours do not cook out or fade during the cooking process. Plus, Greek yogurt can sometimes be tangy (perfectly complimented by the lemon zest), but are sometimes bland overall, so the addition of honey and lemon really makes it taste so much better. You only need to add a little bit of honey to the Greek yogurt, since the blueberry jam gets mixed in with the yogurt as you eat it. Speaking of …
