Oh, holy cow you guys. I think I might be allergic to dairy (cue sarcastic half-hearted woo’s). I currently am working on eating dairy-free and egg-free (already an allergen I just didn’t take it as seriously as I should’ve) for the next four weeks to test the waters, and we’ve been gluten-free for a couple years now. When thinking of going dairy-free it sounded really daunting, not gonna lie.
This recipe gives you a delicious combination of a quiche and breakfast sandwich all baked into one, and EVERY bite is like that. The cheese creates little puddles of goodness throughout the loaf and if you reheat a slice in an oven, toaster oven, or air fryer, the whole outside becomes a toasty cheesy shell and it’s ah-mazing. However, that is not the end to this beautiful piece of art, it also tastes freshly baked when reheated, like c’mon, how much better can this bread be??
Growing up my mom was the best person in my mind (and still is today). She always let us have friends over, do whatever we wanted (or so we thought), and she always made breakfast on Sunday morning. One of the family favorites for breakfast was french toast. Now, growing up I didn’t know that my mom made the best french toast, so when I would go to friend’s houses or restaurants and have french toast I was always disappointed. So here is the super secret french toast recipe! 😉
If you have been gluten-free (GF) for a hot second you’ll know that the bagels in stores are either cruddy, lifeless bread rolls with a hole in the middle, are stupidly expensive, or (most of the time) it’s both. I have yet to find a single GF bagel that even vaguely reminds me of a bagel. So, I turned to my kitchen, floured up my hands, and got to work. Our pantry has been taken over from this escapade, and I think I may have finally found a good recipe, or two!
Here is a tried and true recipe for the pancakes that are all the rage right now. I made this four times to get it just right, and am very happy with the results! If you’ve been hearing about this craze but are GF and can’t just buy them from somewhere else and/or are worried that a GF recipe just won’t be worthwhile, drop what you’re doing and make these right now. I promise they will work and they will be some of the best pancakes your taste buds have encountered.
Recently, McDonald’s released a new addition to their coffee line – the turtle macchiato. I saw an ad for it, we were going to be right next to a McDonald’s (when are you not?), so we got one. Derek and I were supposed to share, but he was looking at something and he made me hold it and… I drank it all.
I don’t know what my life was like before learning how to properly reheat fries. I think out of our whole relationship, the most valuable thing I have learned from Derek is how to reheat food properly.
