…The desert wind that sifts the shifting sand O’er buried cities and tombs of vanished kings, Sad with the knowledge of forgotten things And old with memories none may understand… E gypt, one of the oldest civilizations in the world! I will never forget the excitement on hearing that Cairo would be my first overseas assignment with the British Diplomatic Service. That was over 20 years ago, but I can still feel the blanket of heat which engulfed me as I stepped off the aircraft, and if I close my eyes I can almost smell the sweet jasmine trees which lined the dusty streets. A country steeped in history and culture – from the winding warrens of the Khan El-Khalili souk where I would wander for hours haggling over perfume bottles, spices and other treasures – to the wide open expanse of the desert where I would de-stress from the daily noise and traffic by riding on horseback for miles, then take in a spectacular sunset over the pyramids at Giza.
I’ve made pizza, sandwiches and muffins in a waffle maker. Why not make cinnamon roll waffles! IDEA: Slice them into sticks, pour a little syrup into the bottom of a wide mouth cup, place the sticks in with just the tips touching the syrup and you’ve got a nice dippers for the kids or you can serve them up this way for a buffet. Want to add another layer of flavor? How about CINNAMON CREAM CHEESE BUTTER !!! Cinnamon Roll Waffles Recipe
We love our whipped cream in coffee, on berries for dessert, really on any of our primal desserts. But it’s nice to have an alternative to dairy and for our Paleo friends. Henry thought it would be good to have some cold coconut milk and stuck a can into the fridge for a couple of hours. When he opened it he noticed that it had gotten very thick on top, so he scooped it out and noticed that it had separated from the coconut water. So he added a little cinnamon and a little organic vanilla extract to the thick coconut and whipped it up.
I recently read an article which stated that people who ate dessert for breakfast had less cravings throughout the day and they actually lost more weight than those who swore off sweets completely. When I read this I immediately began thinking about Valentine’s day desserts I could transform into breakfast. Chocolate covered strawberries, red velvet cake, chocolate mouse. The possibilities were endless. After having great luck with baked oatmeal, I thought it would lend itself well to other dessert flavours. I adore the combination of bitter chocolate and sweet cherries so I decided on making black forest cake baked oatmeal.
Here’s a fun breakfast you can make this weekend. My family love German Pancakes (at our house they are called Hootenannies). So when I saw the idea of making mini ones at a site called Gimme Some Oven I had to try them. Her recipe is basically the same as the one I make in my 9 x 13 pan, but you add the butter to the batter instead of the pan.
This cooks while you sleep, so you can wake up to the aroma of a delicious, ready-to-eat breakfast. The oats, flax seed, bananas, and coconut milk will give you the fuel to keep going all morning. It's lactose free and vegan, too. Last year I shared two recipes for Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats, one was apple-cinnamon and the other was cherry-almond . They are healthy, hearty breakfasts that have been very popular with readers. So I thought it was time to try out a new flavor.
