Blueberry Coffeecake with Almond Streusel

My boyfriend and I were visiting friends this weekend and I wanted to bring a little something for everyone to enjoy. This month’s Cooking Light gave me the perfect recipe: Blueberry Coffeecake with Almond Streusel.     Coffeecake can refer to two different dishes: a cake made with coffee, or a cake that is served with coffee. This coffeecake is the latter, and can be served for breakfast or as a dessert.       Ingredients: 9 ounces unbleached all-purpose flour (about 2 cups) 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cups fresh blueberries 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 2 tablespoons sliced almonds 1 tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 tablespoons butter, melted 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup butter, softened 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1 cup nonfat buttermilk 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Cooking spray

Peach-Glazed Salmon with Raspberries

February is Heart Health Month, which brings awareness to heart disease, the leading cause of death for men and women, and how to prevent it. A simple way to keep your heart healthy is to maintain a healthy diet, filled with fruits and vegetables (It is recommended that you eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily), as well as choosing foods low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol and high in fiber. This recipe for Peach-Glazed Salmon with Raspberries is packed with heart-healthy benefits: Salmon’s omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce blood pressure and blood clots.

Slow Cooker Nutella French Toast Casserole with Caramelized Bananas

As most of the U.S. has been dealing with seriously cold weather and snow, I thought it was time to share another French Toast recipe. Without fail, people always go out before a storm and stock up on bread, milk, and eggs so French Toast is the perfect meal on a snow day. This recipe is based off my Slow Cooker Apple French Toast Casserole, but incorporates Nutella and tops it off with caramelized bananas for good measure. I love using my slow cooker for French Toast because it makes a bunch of servings to either share with a group or pack up and enjoy all week! Ingredients: 1 loaf challah bread (about 1 pound), cut into cubes 6 large eggs 2 cups vanilla almond milk (or normal milk) 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 heaping tablespoons Nutella, plus more for topping Pinch salt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 4 bananas, sliced 1 tablespoon brown sugar
