Baked French Toast with Bananas Foster Sauce

Elena Besser

I love this recipe because it is a great way to use up bread that is going stale and make a fabulous breakfast dish. It can be prepped the night before and finished in the oven in the morning while you're making the bananas foster sauce. Plus, the flambé moment is a really fun entertaining trick for a crowd!

Rainbow Smoothie Bowls 3 Ways

When it comes to brunch, I love a wow-factor moment. These rainbow smoothie bowls are gorgeous but each has just a handful of ingredients. The base for all of these fruity smoothie bowls is frozen coconut milk cubes. They add a tropical, creamy base while still keeping them vegan.

Granola is always great but this recipe makes it that much better. Fragrant saffron, warm spices and crunchy nuts are just the tip of the flavor iceberg. This crunchy concoction gets even more taste and texture from healthy seeds, toasty coconut and dried fruit.
