It’s back to school season! So today I’m back with a kid-friendly, super adorable toast-inspired recipe that’s easy to put together and even easier to enjoy. I’ve been seeing photos of these teddy bear toasts recipes where people use fresh fruit to replicate the face of a bear. I fell in love with the idea so I decided to make it here! For this recipe, I used homemade cashew butter, but you can use any variety of nut butter or sweet spread (perhaps even cookie butter like the one I made last year). These Teddy Bear Toasts are cute, simple, and easy to assemble. Get the kids involved! I also found that adding raisins and a drizzle of maple syrup works beautifully here as well. Mornings never tasted so good.

Summer is berry season, but you already knew that. You’ve been to the farmers’ market. You’ve seen the stands teeming with delicious berries. (I hope yours are cheaper than mine in San Francisco.)
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!
This time of year calls for warm wool sweaters and baking all things squash. With autumn well under way, the cool weather demands a bowl of soup!
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.
Call them "hacks," "secret weapons," or just plain ol' good ideas; I think we'd all agree that saving time without sacrificing quality is something we can get on board with. This is especially true when it comes to feeding a party. We've all been there; you've been planning for weeks, then somehow it's three hours before guests arrive, and it looks like a bomb went off in the living room. Not to mention, the only food you have to share is a couple slices of cold pizza, and some day old donuts. While this may not deter some guests, it's really not something we recommend falling back on.
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.
In need of a summer/autumn inspired appetizer for your next BBQ, tailgate, or bonfire? This grilled tomato bruschetta has got you covered. The beautiful charred grilled tomatoes are chopped up, mixed together with red onion, fresh basil, and vinegars, before being topped on some Aunt Millie’s Honey White bread and served immediately. Delicious!
Even though it’s summer, I don’t think there is ever a bad time to enjoy a bowl of bread pudding.
I discovered pesto butter a year or so ago. It was at this little, hole-in-the-wall burger joint about a fifteen-minute drive from my parents’ place. I’m not the biggest burger fan, so I had their grilled chicken sandwich with a cilantro feta pesto butter and it was outstanding! I went straight home and developed a recipe myself and since then I’ve been in love.
When I think of summer, I imagine the smell of smoke from the grill, perfectly sweetened iced tea, the sounds of a thousand grasshoppers, the blinking lights of a cluster of lightning bugs, and, of course, gooey, chocolaty s’mores.
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.
