Super Bowl Sunday Recap

For the Super Bowl this year I really wanted to take it up a notch with my cooking. Check out my recipe below for Loaded Baked Egg Potatoes and Strawberry Crescent Rolls. The commercials were awesome this year. I’m super excited for Fox’s 24 to return to television. That was one of my favorite shows of all time! Check out the trailer below.

This is my dog Louie and we enjoyed our first Super Bowl together this year.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Hello! Recently my friend Maddi contacted me about what she could do about eating a healthier breakfast and it inspired me to make this post. All photos are taken by me. Enjoy!

Here are some ideas:

Cottage Cheese with walnuts, berries, and chia seeds.
Green smoothies with kale, spinach, pineapple, and bananas.
Whole Grain bagel with almond butter, banana, honey, dried cranberries and chia seeds
Toast with spinach, turkey, cheese.
Egg sandwich with avocado, tomato, cheese, turkey bacon.
Whole grain waffles with pomegranate, blueberries, honey.
Oatmeal with peanut butter, cashews, bananas, and chia seeds.

To sum it up:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Protein is key! It will keep you going through the day. Stay away from artificial sugar. If you’re watching your fat intake drop the cheese. Your breakfast should have fruit, veggies, protein, and carbs. Stay away from sugary drinks and start your morning with iced lemon water and coffee. Replace your coffee creamer with soy milk.

Custard Mix
1 cup half-and-half
3 large egg
2 tbsp honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
1⁄4 tsp salt
8 slice (1/2 inch) day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread
4 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp of vanilla

Berry Topping (optional)

Handful of Black Berries
Handful of Pomegranate
Honey
Brown Sugar
Tangerine

1)In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together half-and-half, eggs, honey, vanilla and salt. You may do this the night before. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan and set aside.

2)Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Dip bread into custard mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, and then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

3)Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10 inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately.
