Bring it, Paul Deen!

I received an email last week from a restaurant in Newport Beach who is offering a killer 3 course brunch for Mother's Day. One of the items on the menu is Nutella-Banana Stuffed French Toast. Seriously? I had to try it but my plans for Mother's day consist of breakfast in bed and lounging by the pool ALL day. So, I had to figure out how to make my own to get the thought out of my head.

This is what I came up with...

Pick up a loaf of fresh sourdough bread
..spread nutella on one side....or two like me if you're an over achiever
slice up a banana and cover the nutella

















 Whisk 1/2 cup of milk, 1 egg and 1/4 tsp vanilla and smother your stuffed french toast in it..

{not pictured}
 heat up skillet, throw some butter in and cook both side of the bread until they are crispy

And then...
cover in more butter, dust with powder sugar and whip cream if you really want to get crazy



















Oh my gosh. I can't get over how good this was.
This is on my list for breakfast in bed next Sunday! 

This will not disappoint!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
