This is some pretty great french toast. If you like peanut butter, crunch and french toast you will love this combination. On the other hand, if you’re not fond of peanut butter you can use nutella instead and in my mind it’s even better! Either way it’s the perfect addition to any breakfast, brunch or even dinner.
Only half of a french toast piece is pictured above.
I love these posts from buzzfeed, but I think I missed the November one, what happened? Anyway, I’m drawn to the drinks and the desserts in this article…priorities, right?! To balance things out I think the Teriyaki Glazed Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Stuffed Garlic Monkey Bread look pretty tasty too!
My mom told me that TJ’s and Aldi were owned by brothers. (I also know plenty of people who have shopped there ;)) It’s fun to go there around the holidays too because they have some German imports (chocolate, etc.). It’s a fun place to peruse.
Chances are that you have never set foot inside the best grocery store in America: Aldi. And even if you are lucky enough to be in one of the 32 states where Aldi is, perhaps you were put-off by the cardboard boxes in lieu of shelves, or the row upon row of suspicious-looking off-brands.What is this place? Why do I have to put down a deposit to check out a cart? What is the weird giant shelf by the exit? And what do you mean, I have to pay for a bag?
I had heard these stores were one and the same before and I saw Aldi all over the place when I was in Europe (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) back in September. I love TJ’s so I guess I need to give Aldi a try…
Eataly’s giant Chicago location opened yesterday, and it is epic. Also, "Life is too short not to drink well" may become my new motto.
I just read up on this place and now I’m wondering how in the world I didn’t know it was coming to Chicago?! I can’t wait to go and see what it’s all about!
From huffpost: The food emporium, formerly the site of an ESPN Zone, comes complete with a Nutella bar (we repeat: a Nutella bar), a pizzeria, a mozzarella “lab,” a brewpub, a gelateria, two cafes (from Lavazza and Caffe Vergnano), plus all the meat, cheese, bread, olive oil and wine one’s heart could possibly desire.
I made these for my family’s Thanksgiving celebration and they were relatively easy. I used a muffin tin with liners since I didn’t have a mini cheesecake pan and it worked really well. They were great little tasty treats!
Things have been pretty busy lately hence my radio silence, but here goes the recap of the holiday weekend and November. This month started with the Hot Chocolate 15K, the Beer Hoptacular and the Bears game. Then fall dodgeball ended with my team winning the championship. About mid-November the holiday festivities started with friendsgiving. After that Thanksgiving and all of the family events surrounding it quickly passed. There were numerous days filled with food and drinks, including smoked pork shoulder, appetizers at Revolution Brewery, sushi at Shiso, smoked ribs and plenty of sweet treats. Of course there was also some shopping sprinkled in there, even though we didn’t go out for Black Friday we did a little shopping online. The weekend and the end of November was finished off with picking out and decorating a Christmas tree…the perfect end to November and the start of December!
