In case you can’t tell, that is indeed a 10 pound bag of blueberries. Yes, that’s right – 10 pounds.

Corn tortillas stuffed with eggs, veggies, cheese, and salsa make a perfect start to the day Americans have been taco crazy for decades, yet most of us have never thought of the tortilla as a breakfast food.

Breakfast Tacos

Not the case in Austin, Texas, where the 99-cent tacos stuffed with scrambled eggs, beans, and salsa mark the beginning of the day for many a local. Infectiously delicious, to be sure, but also a perfectly healthy start to your day, assuming you stick to corn tortillas, which have half the calories and twice the fiber of their flour counterparts.

The title says "cake" but I really feel that "bread" better describes what this is. Sweet yeasty dough cut and slathered with butter and lemon infused sugar is baked and then spread with lemon cream cheese icing. Once its iced you can just peel the slices off, no need to cut (who has time to find a knife anyways??)

It also helps to have a ruler as a guide for cutting the strips of dough before stacking them and cutting again. This made the house smell amazing..bread baking + lemon sugar mmm. The loaf gets spread with lemon cream cheese icing while its still warm. 1. 2. Blueberry Oatmeal Crumble Bars. Challah French Toast Recipe : Ina Garten. Crème brûlée french toasts.
