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.

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.
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.
My particular kitchen vibe is best described as “assembling ingredients.” Rarely does what I do cross over into “cooking” territory. I argue, however, that what I do requires a different set of skills than cooking. In order to assemble ingredients in a satisfying way, one has to have a taste for what ingredients will go well together. Usually, I steal from restaurants. This situation is no exception.
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!
March Madness is upon me. It’s my favorite time of the year, but there are so many college basketball games to watch that I lose what little resolve to cook that I had in the first place. I have usually at least two games on simultaneously: one on the TV and one on my laptop. On the first two days of the tournament, there is sometimes a third game playing on my iPad.
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.
