Cream Cheese French Toast Sandwiches

Yum! We had a visitor for breakfast the other day who suggested a WONDERFUL innovation to our menu. We took 6 oz softened cream cheese and a scoop of blueberry jam and mixed them well. Then, we mixed our french toast dipping sauce (I do three or four eggs, a splash of vanilla, and half-and-half/milk/cream, depending on how much I want to work out that day). You spread our cream cheese mixture on one piece of bread, put another piece on top (just like a traditional sandwich) and then dip the whole sandwich in your marinade. Grill those babies as usual, and shake on a little powdered sugar before serving. Whoa!

Sorry there are no pictures, I was too busy eating!

Fried Apples

Today we had a pajama day. We all wore our pjs all day and were only allowed to eat breakfast food. By dinner, I was feeling a little breakfast food-ed out. Until. I found these - fried apples. WOW! I forgot how much I like apples. And the sauce over waffles was more like candy than breakfast!
I love See here for this tasty treat!

Apple Pie Oatmeal

This recipe is not an original. It was taken years ago from a magazine I simply cannot remember the name of. However, it is too good not to share, especially with apples in season and fall upon us!

3 c water
2 medium tart apples, chopped
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
dash of salt
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c chopped almonds (I like walnuts too! I would just use whatever nuts you have on hand, they are all fairly nutty)

Boil water. Add apples, oats and salt and boil, while mixing, for five minutes. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Cover and let stand for 2 minutes. Sprinkle each serving with nuts and add milk or syrup. Or, let me go out on a limb here, what about a scoop of vanilla ice cream? It is dairy, right? How about apple pie oatmeal a-la-mode? No problem getting breakfast eaten today!

Pirate Cake, with a treasure discovery

Hyrum wanted a pirate cake for his birthday this year. I wanted to do it, I did not look forward to using the fondant recipe I have used for the past several years. So, I looked throught trusty and came up with a great Marshmallow Fondant recipe!

It did take some work to do all the detailing, but it was SO fun! I can't wait for the next!
