Celebrate on a budget!

Feb 14, 2017 | Food, Fun | 3 Comments

I love to entertain. But my favorite people to entertain are my KIDS! Which is why I am so in love with the dollar section at Target. I’m able to get a bunch of cute and inexpensive items to make my kid’s faces light up. You can even create an adorable Valentine’s inspired breakfast for dinner, using inexpensive heart-shaped cookie cutters in various sizes and milk jugs.

Share pictures of you and your loved ones celebrating Valentine’s Day! Our favorite picture will be sent a signed copy of my book “The Seasoned Life”.  (contest entry deadline February 15th at 12 pm (PST.)

Heart Shaped French Toast and Eggs

3 Eggs.
3/4 Cup of milk or heavy cream.
1 Teaspoon cinnamon.
1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
1 Teaspoon granulated sugar.
Pinch salt.
Any type of bread. (3-4 slices)

*Tip* Mix together 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon in a separate bowl and sprinkle on each side as cooking.

Beat eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon in shallow dish. Stir in milk.

Use heart shaped cookie cutter to make your shapes.

Dip bread in egg mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly. (Don’t be the victim of soggy bread!)

Cook bread slices on greased nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat until browned on both sides. (Butter baby!)

For the eggs. I simply sprayed a heart shaped cookie cutter with non-stick cooking spray. Put it in a heated skillet and crack an egg inside of each one. Cook it to your liking! And season with salt and pepper.

*Tip* Placing a pan lid over the top ensures fully cooking your egg. Usually about 2-3 minutes.

Hope you all have a great day celebrating LOVE!

XO Ayesha
