Nutella is an absolute favourite in my family, so I thought making Nutella Rolls would be appropriate as well as appreciated. I cannot say they are not. My family honestly licked two trays clean and asked for more. These rolls are soft, sweet, fluffy and read more

Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

This post is sponsored by Danone North America. The opinions and text are all mine.

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.

Waffle Breakfast Board

My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.

This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.

It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.

Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.

Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.

Waffle Breakfast Board

With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.

It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.

I love the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix because everyone loves an amazing deal, and Publix definitely has it.

You can purchase so many delicious products that you likely already use, so check it out. Do not miss this excellent opportunity, because it is a great one!

In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.

Stok Cold Brew Coffee

Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.

Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.

As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.

They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.

Creamer from So Delicious

Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!

Easy and Quick Salad Dressing

When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.

I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.

Salad with Yogurt Lemon Dressing

However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.

Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.

Yogurt Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Mix ingredients in one medium-size bowl. Set aside for about 15 minutes to allow all flavors to develop.

I love a good sandwich, especially these amazingly delicious and super easy Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches.

It is a comforting breakfast or you may eat it for brunch. Well, we prep it many times even for dinner. Wouldn’t you agree that sometimes breakfast for dinner hits the spot?

Just the other day before my oldest son, Aleks, went to work I made these sandwiches for him.

It was a perfect meal to keep him full until lunchtime. He is on the winter break so he is home from college for one more week.

I like spoiling my kids with good homemade food. To be honest, I think I just love feeding people.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

So, if you into making your own croissant, be my guest and made that buttery pastry. However, you can pretty much get them these days in any grocery store bakery.

I got a boxful of smaller or mini Croissant from Kroger’s brand private selection. They were great for these sandwiches. Additionally, it saves you so much time.

Anyhow, I do have many sandwich recipes so my blog that I know you will love. I must recommend one of my favourites, which is similar to this one just by using bagel.

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Brunch Bagel Sandwich – egg, bacon, cheese, avocado and lettuce.

Saying that I love bagels is an understatement. I really enjoy nice bagels sandwiches and my family is exactly the same.

I know perfectly well that this sandwich is nothing new, but I wanted to have it on my blog as an idea.

You know when you come and search for sandwiches and you see these beauties. You instantly know that you are craving it.

Scramble some eggs, crisp up your bacon in the air fryer, add a few slices of cheese and you got yourself an amazing breakfast meal.

Recipe

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches

Yield: 1 Serving
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

Bacon Eggs and Cheese Croissant Sandwiches are a perfect breakfast or brunch meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of hardwood bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Pinch of salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chives, optional
  • 2 oz mild cheddar cheese, or any on hand
  • 2 small croissants or one larger.

Instructions

  1. Place bacon in the air fryer and crip it up for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on your taste, at 360 degrees Fahrenheit. You may also use bacon pre-set temperature on your air fryer. For oven baking: place bacon in the baking pan and bake for about 15 minutes at 350F or until it is crispy to your desire. *If you are baking in the oven, do not toss those drippings. Save them and you may make potatoes or chicken in it. So good!
  2. Meanwhile, make eggs. Crack two eggs in the cup and add salt, pepper and chives which are optional. Mix until the eggs are smooth. Preheat your skillet or frying pan with a dab of butter and at the lower temperature cook eggs. You could make something like an omelette and fold with cheese before adding to your sandwich or you may make scrambled eggs and toss some cheese on top to melt. You have both useful methods below.
  3. Now, open your Croissant just by slicing in half.
  4. Add cheese eggs then slices of bacon on top.
  5. You may heat it all together in the air fryer, microwave or oven for a couple of minutes or until Croissants are softer. Enjoy!

If you are heating sandwich in the air-fryer, use temp of 350F for 3-4 minutes. The time and results will depend on your air fryer.

If you are heating sandwich in the microwave, you will heat it for 20-30 seconds. The time and results will depend on your microwave.

If you are heating sandwich in the oven, you could preheat the oven to 375F, cover sandwiches with alum foil or similar and allow it to get sandwiches heated through for about 5-7 minutes. The time and results will depend on your oven.

Creamy scrambled eggs:

  1. The moment the eggs hit the pan, use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to rapidly swirl in small circles around the pan until the eggs look slightly thickened and very small curds begin to form.
  2. Then try changing from swirling in circles to making long sweeps across the pan so it could cook into larger curds. You may add a bit of shredded cheese on top and before adding in the sandwich.


Cheesy Omelette:

  1. Once the pan is hot, pour in the combined mixture in the pan. Use a heavy-duty silicone spatula to gently move cooked egg in from the edge of the pan to the middle, creating curds.
  2. Slightly tilt a skillet or a pan and rotate to make sure that any uncooked egg fills in any empty spaces that you just pulled in the middle.
  3. When the surface of the egg looks wet but does not jiggle or look too uncooked when the pan is shaken, it is ready for the cheese or any other filling.
  4. Add cheese on one side and fold the omelette in half with a spatula.
  5. Slice in half and you can use one half of the sliced omelette for each sandwich.

Notes

Double or triple the ingredients if you going to make more than one serving. Salt and black pepper technically you will only need a generous pinch of both.

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Appetizers

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Appetizers

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Appetizers are perfect bites to serve over joyous holidays. However, in my humble opinion, these are divine perfection all year round.

Sometimes, instead of these rather gourmet crackers, I would serve it with toasted bruschetta. It is just so fancy, yet unbelievably easy.

Truth to be told, this is my absolute favorite to munch on especially if we have a Swedish table; which is a Scandinavian meal, originating obviously in Sweden, served buffet-style foods on a table.

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Appetizers

Well, I love shopping in Cosco for the best quality foods. I am not sponsored and paid by them to talk about it.

I don’t go frequently, but perhaps once every two weeks to get my favorite charcuterie board products.

Needless to say, you could get it anywhere, but I love certain premium brands. Also, buying in bulk if I know we will have guests.

Tap here for more appetizer recipes.

It is significantly more inexpensive, I get an incredible amount of food as well as the excellent quality.

So, for my party of six, I picked up Norwegian Smoked Salmon Slices. Actually, I got a couple of packages. Authentic flavors of the smoked ready to eat salmon are Peppered, Traditional, Dill.

Of course, I served it with other things, such as a cheeseboard and my deviled eggs, which are amazing.

Smoked Salmon Goat Cheese Appetizers

Anyway, this salmon pack of 12 ounces includes a packet of so amazingly delicious honey mustard dill sauce.

I am certain it is not a massive deal to make your recipe for honey-mustard dill sauce, but since salmon came with it, I used it.

If you for any reason dislike goat cheese, you could use any other creamy cheese.

Goat cheese just goes perfectly together with smoked salmon. Capers are somewhat must-have with these appetizing bites.

With this being said, aren’t these amazingly delicious-looking? You must agree that these look fire.
