Croissant French Toast It's a Keeper

Croissant French Toast

Since our Saturday’s are usually pretty hectic, we like to start our Sundays off slowly and have a big family breakfast.  Usually, we have pancakes. omelets or french toast.  Recently, however, I thought I would put a spin on our traditional french toast. I found this recipe for Croissant on an episode of WNEP’s Home and Backyard.  It’s a great locally produced show that’s on our local ABC affiliate.  You can watch the episodes featuring yours truly here.

Carrot Apple Ginger Slaw It's a Keeper

Carrot Apple Ginger Slaw

In my humble opinion, coleslaws are the quintessential summer salad.  They are perfect for cookouts and picnics.   Some are sweet and creamy while others can be tangy and bright.  One thing I adore about slaws is their versatility.   Gone are the days of the boring coleslaw.  Why go with boring when you can tinker around with different veggies and sauces?  Some of my favorites are  my Creamy Broccoli Slaw, Sriracha Coleslaw, California Citrus Slaw and this delightful Carrot Apple Ginger Slaw.

I love the flavor combination of this salad.  The apples and carrots are crisp and fresh.  While the ginger-infused sauce has a tart, slightly sweet flavor.  When all of these flavors and textures come together, you have a refreshing summer salad that is just bursting with flavor!  It goes perfectly with fish – providing some acidity to balance out the flavors.  Or, I love it on top of a good turkey burger!
