INGREDIENTS
  • 4 tablespoons low fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons whole grain bread crumbs, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • 8 strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 teaspoons oil, divided

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. To make the filling mix the cream cheese with the honey and set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish whisk the eggs and milk together.
  3. On a large plate combine 2 tablespoons bread crumbs, ½ tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon.
  4. Heat ½ teaspoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan. To assemble the French Toast, spread a slice of bread with ¼ of the cream cheese mixture. Top with two sliced strawberries and cover with a second slice of bread. Coat first with the egg mixture and then with bread crumbs. Fry over medium-high heat until golden brown and crunchy, gently pushing down on the edges of the bread to seal.
  5. Continue the same way with the other six bread slices. Halfway through wipe the plate with the coating mixture clean and mix the rest of the bread crumbs, sugar and cinnamon for making the other two French Toasts.
  6. Serve warm with additional strawberries.

Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons Yields: 1 serving, about 6­/7 pancakes

Ingredients

1/4 cup (60 g) plain Greek yogurt

1/2 medium, ripe banana (50 g or 1/4 cup [60 ml] mashed)

1/2 cup (40 g) rolled oats*

2 large egg whites OR 1 large egg

1­/2 Tbsp (15­30 ml) unsweetened almond milk*

* 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup (35 g) blueberries, fresh or frozen

 

Instructions

1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat and coat it with cooking spray or oil. You want to make sure that it’s very hot before you start cooking your pancakes. 2. Add all the ingredients except for blueberries to a blender in the order listed and blend on high until the oats are fully broken down and the batter is smooth and frothy, about 1­2 minutes. Fold in the blueberries by hand and allow batter to sit for a few minutes so that it thickens up. 3. Pour batter straight from blender onto skillet until desired size of pancakes is reached and cook until the edges have set and bubbles begin to form on the tops of the pancakes, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula, flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat until all the batter is gone, making sure to coat your skillet again with oil between each batch. Top with desired toppings and enjoy!

 

Notes
* make sure to use certified gluten-free oats if you need these to be gluten-free.
** start with 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of almond milk and only add a second if you feel the batter is too thick.

I may be a fashionista but a girl has to eat…..which is why I treated myself recently to a trip to Tuscany.  Ok, you called my bluff , I didn’t cash in my frequent flyer miles for a one-way ticket to Italy but I did strap on my finest pair of designer Italian heels and saunter down Las Olas Boulevard to the Tuscan Grill.  This charming and authentic Italian eatery offers a unique waterfront al fresco dining experience for all to enjoy!

I would quickly add this gem to your lust list for a future girl’s night out or a romantic date night with your Mr. Big as the restaurant’s cozy ambiance lends itself to long, intimate conversations over even longer tendrils of delicious, homemade pasta.

For starters, try the grilled artichokes, which were perfectly cooked and full of garden flavor. I complemented this dish with an elegant glass of Pinot Noir from their diverse selection of wines. Note: their signature cocktails were also recipients of Wine Spectator Magazine’s Award of Excellence.

Next, I enjoyed a deliciously healthy yet hearty grilled salmon accompanied by a crisp and bountiful salad, which paired perfectly with the wine.  From the prime aged steaks and veal chops to fresh local seafood, it was really hard to choose exactly what to order and the menu and the waiter’s recitation of daily specials, created by the exceptionally talented Chef Josh Welch, read like a food porn diary. So my suggestion is to bring lots of friends and divide and conquer for an impromptu tasting journey through Tuscany.

What does one wear for such a journey you may ask.  I draped myself in a floral maxi dress by Yumi Kim of course to compliment the al fresco dining experience.  As I mentioned in previous posts about our spring trends shoot for FOX’s Deco Drive show, floral is one of this season’s must have trends. I accessorized with another  current obsession – a Vanessa Mooney choker. It adds a slight edge to my feminine florals. Stack delicate bracelets up one arm and run a curling iron through your hair for effortless, beachy waves and you’re ready for a delightful evening out on the town.
