Challah French Toast with Caramelized Bananas! Such a delicious weekend brunch recipe! ll

I am a self-proclaimed carboholic, mainly due to my love of bread. As you guys should know by now, my healthy outlook is all about balance, and so even though I eat bread on a regular basis, I only eat healthy, whole-grain varieties.  Challah is my favorite bread of all time. When made correctly, challah is fluffy, light, and slightly sweet. In recent years, I’ve seen some grocery stores and […]

If you’re like me, keep reading because I’m going to teach you my tips for […]

The 10 Best Kitchen Tools Under $10 ll Great for everyone from beginner cooks to advanced, and these products are perfect for anyone shopping on a budget! ll

When I was in college and first starting teaching myself to cook, a lot of the kitchen tools I used were hand-me-downs from my parents.

As with most things I buy, if I know I am going to use something cooking-related over and over again, I like to invest in a good […]
