Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks from justataste.com #recipe

If you peek your head around these parts, you’ll notice I have a strong affinity for custard-soaked carbs, specifically of the French toast variety. You’ve got your banana bread French Toast, your festively flavored French toast, and last but not least, your stuffed French toast. Today, we’re adding one more to the mix with Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks.

So what makes these buttery batons tasty enough to steer clear of the drive-through breakfast menu? None other than a simple cinnamon-vanilla custard that lends the characteristic eggy coating. But slices of bread were so 2013. It’s about time you forget the forks and take a walk on the slender side with finger-friendly French toast sticks. All that’s missing from this breakfast party is a few fresh berry buoys and a warm maple syrup plunge pool. Dip. Dunk. Repeat.

Shredded Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Dressing

Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad with Lemon Dressing from justataste.com #recipe

A new year. A fresh start. A clean slate. And a big ol’ kale and Brussels sprout salad with lemon dressing to kickstart our healthy eating habits on Day 1 of 2014.

Nothing says “healthy” quite like kale. The nutrient-packed leafy green made not one, not two, not three, but four appearances on the site in 2013. So while a salad of kale ribbons is nothing new around these parts, the addition of love-em-or-hate-em Brussels sprouts and sweet and tangy lemon dressing makes this healthy dish the exact knockout punch your New Year’s resolution needs.
