I give a lot of lip service to laziness masquerading as a commitment to simplicity, but the truth is that sometimes if you invest a little extra effort, you can reap massive rewards. Case in point: avocado toast.

I’m back with another delicious and super easy toast recipe! With Memorial Day and the 4th of July, summer is the perfect time to salute the armed forces. I come from a long line of family members who have served in the American military, stretching way back to my great-grandfather. When brainstorming recipe ideas for this Toastimonial, my father suggested doing “Stuff on Toast” (better known as “S&%@ on Toast” or “SOS” from members of the service), a popular dish served when he was in the Air Force. Father explained that it is a classic country gravy with chipped corn beef over warm buttered toast.
Did you know that you can buy French toast already made? I’m not talking about those frozen sticks of French toast-like substance; I’m talking about real pieces of thick, high quality Aunt Millie’s bread with all the yummy flavor of French toast built right in. You just pop a slice in the toaster and—bam!—French toast smells waft throughout your kitchen, and maybe fill your entire home, if your home is a 600-square foot, one bedroom apartment. In a matter of minutes, you’re eating French toast with a sly smile as if you’re getting away with something.
I work from home, and for the most part, it’s everything you’re imagining: laptop in bed, pajamas at 3:00 p.m., talking to my cats about their hopes and dreams. But what they don’t tell you about working from home is that you are responsible for lunch every single day. There aren’t any monthly team Chipotle lunches or impromptu midday margaritas with co-workers. It’s just me and the kitchen every single workday.
It’s Nathaniel from TermiNatetor Kitchen and I am back with another tasty Toastimonial. Today I’m sharing my recipe for Turmeric Milk French Toast. Now, if you haven’t had turmeric milk (or sometimes called “golden milk”) before, here is the run down. Turmeric milk is the infusion of either dry turmeric powder or fresh turmeric root into milk. Traditionally, it is an Indian drink most commonly used for treating specific diseases as well as a tonic for general health. Now turmeric milk is the cool new libation on the foodie scene that everyone and their brother is talking about, and for good reason. Two words: it’s amazing!
It’s a new year, but I’m the same old me, standing here in my kitchen trying to figure out how to give myself a well-balanced breakfast with the least amount of effort. Of course, I’m going to have toast. I have a piece of Aunt Millie’s Best Grains whole wheat bread in the toaster, ready to go. I just need something to put on it.
It’s 2017! It’s been a while since we’ve chatted. Where has the thyme gone?! I’m back again with another Breadsense recipe for all you bread fanatics out there!
When I was growing up, cinnamon toast was a staple of my wholesome Midwestern childhood. My mom would make it for me as an occasional breakfast or more likely for a bedtime snack. Even now, as an adult making cinnamon toast for myself in my apartment overlooking San Francisco, when I bite into a warm, crunchy, sweet piece of cinnamon toast, I am transported back to Indiana in the 1980s.
When I first saw it on the menu at a trendy brunch spot in none other than the Mission neighborhood in San Francisco, I looked over my shoulder to see if I could spot my guardian angel. Alas, she was working invisibly as usual, placing me in the path of my destiny in such a way as to make me believe I’d chosen it myself. For avocado and bread are my two favorite foods, and here they were together in one perfect dish bearing the unassuming moniker of Avocado Toast.
Despite having so many activities of obvious precedence, we still have to eat. This is when having a few, foolproof, ready-to-go meals become a necessity. However, as any seasoned veteran of summer time unpredictability knows, you have to be able to adapt. You never know who will be sitting at the table
The amount of times I hit snooze in a single morning is too numerous to count. I actually set my alarm an hour before I need to be up so I have a buffer to hit the snooze button five or six times. True fact. However, in developing this strawberry compote and honeyed mascarpone over toast recipe, I have discovered the cure to my loathing of early mornings.
The weather is bone-chillingly cold (the typical tundra that is the Midwest) and that senseless groundhog never seems to see his shadow. The most important thing? Eating all the chocolate. And if you’re feeling like something extra special: pour that chocolate on some bread.
