Sweet Treats and Good Eats!

Hi Everyone!  I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!  Here is a recap of some good eats from my weekend and a couple of recipes 🙂

Blackberry French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 3 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup blackberries (frozen)
  • Agave nectar or Maple Syrup
  • Cinnamon

Directions:

  • Whisk together eggs and cinnamon.  Individually dunk the bread and cover with the mixture.  Place bread onto a skillet set to medium.  Flip after a few minutes.
  • Microwave the frozen blackberries for 2 minutes in a bowl.  This makes a great topping and sauce.  Pour on top of the french toast and drizzel with agave nectar or maple syrup.  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

I have a lot of food I need to get rid of before my move in June…including a whole lotta’ frozen butter.  For some reason I thought I would go through 8 sticks? Not so much.  I decided to try my hand at making homemade cookies. There is nothing really healthy about em’ besides using whole wheat flour, but wow, are they tasty!  Butter is definitely essential sometimes! 😉

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon to taste
  • *Optional: 2 tbsp peanut butter (I had to use it up!)

Directions:

  • Mix everything together with an electric mixer until well blended.  The mixture will be thick.
  • Spoon out dough onto greased cookie sheets about 2 inches a part.  I made about 30 cookies.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

  2. My favorite thing I ate this weekend would have to be my turkey and cranberry sanwich from Five Loaves. It rocked! I like the Bud Light Limes too, but I’d rather have Firefly sweet tea vodka and sugarfree lemonade any day!
