Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Pumpkin Spice French Toast


This recipe is so easy. I love it because it's naturally dairy-free, and you could easily make it gluten-free by swapping out the bread. It's also a quick fix if you're craving a pumpkin-flavored treat. My girls and I like to make pancakes for our weekend brunches, but this is our new favorite. We made it a few times, adding more pumpkin each time. Tonight (yes, we had it for dinner) we added extra pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Everyone agreed it was the best thus far. Serve it up for a cozy fall brunch or for an easy holiday breakfast.

I used 9 slices of plain white sandwich bread, and the pumpkin mixture wound up being just enough; if you want to make more slices or plan to use large Texas toast and want to let it soak a little, you may want to increase the quantities a bit.

Ingredients
  • 8-9 slices of white sandwich bread
  • 3/4 c canned pumpkin puree
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1&1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • butter or oil for coating the griddle

Instructions

Simply blend all the ingredients (other than the bread of course) and dip the bread in the mixture, coating each side.

Coat the griddle and heat it to 350 degrees, then cook each side about 5 minutes or until golden brown. That's it!

Pile on the fixings for a holiday brunch; set out an array of syrups, powdered sugar, cinnamon, whipped cream, and nuts.
