By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1128 views

French toast can be a challenge for vegan eaters, with its egg- and milk-based batter. After all, it is that very batter that makes the dish so delicious. But as it turns out, a plant-based alternative is not impossible.

This Pumpkin French Toast Casserole is amazing for many reasons. The star of the dish is the gluten free Cinnamon & Raisin Loaf from Little Northern Bakehouse.

Little Northern Bakehouse’s breads are gluten-free, non-GMO and 100% plant-based, meaning they are egg and dairy-free. In addition to the cinnamon & loaf, they also offer a millet & chia loaf and a seeds & grain loaf. If you are buying gluten free bread, you will be hard-pressed to find better tasting bread than Little Northern Bakehouse.

Patak’s 3-Step Kits

I grew up in a Lebanese family in which food played a starring role. Before we could finish one meal, my mom was already asking what we wanted for the next one. Despite working all day, my mom always had dinner on the table every day at 5:00- a feat I did not appreciate until I was much older. Eating dinner together was a non-negotiable in our house. No matter how busy our lives got, the one thing we could depend on was a home-cooked meal. Even if it meant my mom being in the kitchen until 9 pm preparing dinner for the next day. Like my mother, I understand the importance of a home-cooked meal. Unlike my mother, I do not plan my dinners three days in advance, sometimes even one day ahead is pushing it. This usually results with me scrambling for ideas only to realize I am…

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich Recipe

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 363 views

Philly cheesesteaks are iconic, and for good reason. A well-made one can be a thing of beauty. All of the ingredients kind of… fuse together. Thinly shaved beef, glistening caramelized onions, melty gooey cheese – all loaded on a perfectly toasted roll (pause to wipe drool).

Making cheesesteaks at home doesn’t require any fancy moves, only the willingness to turn your kitchen into a South Philly hoagie shop.

Coffee Crusted Roast Beef

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 442 views

One of my first dates with my boyfriend was to a Justin Bieber concert. Before the concert, he invited me over for one of the best roast beef dinners I’ve ever had. I remember thinking to myself “this guy likes Justin Bieber AND knows how to cook? Jackpot”.

As it turned out, he wasn’t actually a Belieber and doesn’t really cook, but the roast beef recipe is still one of the best. The secret is the addition of coffee to the rub. Just like red wine, coffee is acidic and acts like a spice to enhance the flavor of the meat. The combination is a match made in heaven.

This roast is a show-stopper, and perfect for whomever you’re looking to impress. It reminds us that we should be using our coffee beans in much more than our morning mug. It makes great leftovers too.
