Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast

I came home from work super early the other day and surprised my kids the other day with these beauties! They were so excited and gobbled them up.  I must admit they were delicious. 
Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast
apapted from Rachael Ray
10 slices bread
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 Tablespoons butter
Peanut Butter
Jelly or jam
Optional: Maple Syrup
Spread peanut butter and then jelly on 5 of the slices of bread.  Put the other slices on top to make five sandwiches.  Beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add 2 Tablespoons of butter.  When the butter is almost melted, dunk two of the sandwiches in the egg batter and let the excess drip off.  Place in the pan. Fry the sandwiches until golden brown on each side about 3-4 minutes per side.  Repeat by melting the rest of the butter and finish cooking the rest of the sandwiches.   Cut sandwiches into 4 sticks each and if desired serve with warm maple syrup. (I ate mine plain!!)
Makes 5 sandwiches but you could possibly make 6 if you want.
*I made half with whole wheat bread and half with white.  The kids did not notice the difference. So next time it is all whole wheat! Yay!!


  1. Yum! I should do this with just PB for the boys as they don't like jelly, sounds awesome! Almost like a monte cristo sandwich.

  2. Making this for breakfast with my kids. Thanks for sharing. =)

  3. Sounds like a late Saturday morning treat!

  4. What a great kids breakfast! Fun!

  5. Wonderful recipe! My family will DEMAND these after I make them! Thank you for posting!

  6. What a cool idea! These are great for kids!

  7. I didn't think you could improve on the pb&j...but you did!!!!

    Lots of yummy love,

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
