French Toast BLT

When we think about french toast, we immediately imagine maple syrup, cinnamon, berries…. breakfast and coffee, right? But what if there could be a savory version of french toast? Sometimes I think about those things, and I start googling and pinteresting to see what’s out there. I found a lot of BLT french toast photographs to inspire me. Basically, you use the same base as you would to make normal french toast, buy instead of adding sugar you add salt, spices and herbs to the mix. As I write this, I’m thinking about adding a little white wine to the mix, and top my savory french toast with sautéed mushrooms and caramelized onions? A little swiss cheese maybe? I’ll definitely try that and post the recipe.

My recommendation when trying this recipe, is that you can try to get a crusty bread.  Even though I made mine with whole wheat sliced bread, it would have turned out even better if I would have used a rustic type of bread, or even baguette sliced diagonally.

Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce

I’ve missed posting like I regularly did, this year has been full of changes and adjustments for me and I just can’t seem to get a handle on my schedule… but I’m still here!

Now more than ever, I am leaning towards fast and easy recipes. I always try to keep homemade tomato sauce in my fridge, I use it for all sorts of things and is sometimes a lifesaver when I need to get a quick meal ready for my daughter. I use it to make a quick pasta dish, or pita bread pizzas for her. For breakfast I use it on eggs and sometimes I use it on my cooking when the recipe calls for tomato sauce. Of course, using store-bought tomato sauce is convenient, but we have gotten so used to the natural flavors of the homemade kind that we don’t like the flavor of the commercial brands anymore. You might have to invest a little time in making it, although it’s actually quite easy, but you can double this recipe to freeze half of it for later use. And also, don’t you think that every home cook should know how to make a good tomato sauce?
