Stuffed Saturday

I hope everyone had a great week and looking forward to a relaxing weekend! We’ve had a very busy and productive week, so the weekend couldn’t come sooner. Unfortunately, our weekends are just as busy.

When I was catching you up this week, did I mention we are now both Coffee Connoisseurs?! Ohh yeaaa… LaurenAsh has joined the cool scenes of the coffee world. Imagine that! Two corporate professionals now working at boutique coffee shops, some days I can’t believe it either. But when I take in all the stress I know longer have, it’s all worth it.

So I decided to share this delicious concoction from last weekend, when we were free to relax.

I can taste these beauties as I type. When I make this dish, I say to people “and you thought eating gluten and dairy free was hard?”
My new favorite type of bread to cook with is “Food For Life”, which can be found in your local health food store or Shoprite.

French Toast a la apple ๐Ÿ™‚
4 slices of Food For Life brown rice bread
1 tbsp of cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 c. of coconut or rice milk

(Glaze)
1/3 c coconut milk
1 tbsp of confectioners sugar

After mixing all of the ingredients together and soaking the toast, I butter the pan with Melt (butter spread) and pan fried the toast. In a separate pan, simmered pink lady apple slices, butter and cinnamon.

Just plate, drizzle and enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s New Our Way?!

World meet…

Enchanted Sweets is an all-natural baked goods company free from common allergens such as wheat, gluten, dairy and soy. We have just given birth to our first baby and it couldn’t smell sweeter.

Believe me it took sometime to perfect the mixtures and play around with the sweeteners and spices! But our bellies were filled with lots of love and hope for what was being born.

Every new thing needs a fairy godparent, so Ganache Cafe in Hoboken was the chosen one. Being the Supervisor, I am constantly watching customers walk away with sad faces because we do not have allergy free goodies, telling them “chin, up they’re coming” only made me stay in the kitchen longer to make these beauties.

Are you as excited as I am? Wait! There’s more!

So… the theory behind Enchanted Sweets, is to develop what your imagination creates. So the mixture of these flavors could possibly be found somewhere is, but not likely. ๐Ÿ™‚ To spark a little something extra, we developed “Mythical Adventures”… dessert replicas of favorite foods… the first one to complete?! Hamburger and Fries.

That’s right, I said it! Mini hamburger sliders and steak fries… don’t believe me?! See the wizard’s secret potion below:

Whew! I’ve think I’ve sent you into a state of shock or even tickled your sweet tooth! My apologies! But just for kicks, here is the final display at Ganache.

Try Something New Tuesday

I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!

I wanted to share this new little gadget that we just got. So as you know, we are totally in love with smoothies and unfortunately my beloved Bella spun her last spin of delicious goodness. I have to be honest, I did go into a state of withdraw for a few days, until I found a new smoothie buddy.

After visiting, Target and Walmart, my last resort was Kmart. Shockingly, every now and then, I find good deals on appliances there.

Little did I know that it would be my lucky day! While scanning the aisles, I stumbled upon this beauty.

photoBrought to us by Hamilton Beach appliances, the “Wave Station Express” picked me up out of my state of withdraw, sent me off with a big smile and delicious, creamy and thick smoothie! For the low price of $25, I couldn’t be happier!

The Wave Station is easy to assemble and take a part for cleaning, which is something I really happen to adore. So if you’re looking for a new blender or a appliance just for smoothies or milkshakes, this is it! ๐Ÿ™‚
