Blueberry Stuffed French Toast Recipe + David Bromstad Designs + A Giveaway!!

Are you a coffee drinker? Let me tell you, it is my mode of survival! Without it, I'm no fun, ha! And with it this is how I feel.... "Given enough coffee I could rule the world"! Can you relate? I do, however, use creamer in my coffee, always have. So you can imagine I was pretty stoked when design star David Bromstad partnered with Coffee-mate and Target, making a splash with the limited edition bottles inspired my coffee and Coffee-mate. The new David Bromstad designed bottles (French Vanilla and Hazelnut flavors) will be available at Target stores nationwide! Why am I excited about that you say? Well, one I LOVE David Bromstad, have you seen the designs that man comes up with? Brilliant! And two, I'm a coffee freak (not to mention I'm Target obsessed), so this was basically a win-win for me!

It's a lot of fun when you can become inspired by a product you use to think outside the box! Not only do I love coffee creamer in my coffee (French Vanilla is my favorite!), but I like to explore recipes with it too! I recently made an absolutely delicious french toast recipe using the French Vanilla creamer. My kids and husband just raved over it, so I will certainly be making it again!

Here's the recipe:
Coffee-mate coffee creamer, flavor desired
3 large eggs
sliced bread
blueberries (optional)

Start by cracking your eggs into a bowl. Mix in your coffee creamer, pouring just enough to thicken the mixture (about 2-4 tablespoons). Add a teaspoon of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon. Grab a fork and mix well. Heat your frying pan to medium heat and melt a little butter, dip your slice of bread covering both sides into the egg mixture and place it onto the heated pan. Cook until slightly brown on each side. This mixture was enough to make 7 slices of french toast. Grab your blueberries, rinse and place them in a small bowl. Grab a fork and begin to mash them up, add a little bit of water to create a syrup-y mixture. Place the blueberry syrup between two pieces of french toast. You can add a small amount of syrup on top or a little powered sugar. This breakfast is full of flavor and simple to make!

Can you believe a little coffee creamer inspired all that? For more inspired fun, snap a photo of the newly designed bottles and share it on Facebook with the hashtag #CMInspiresSweepsEntry for a chance to win a year’s worth of Coffee-mate, $500 Target GiftCards, and a signed print from David Bromstad!

To create a little more excitement, ONE lucky winner will receive a giveaway prize including 5 mini journals, a pack of colorful pens, a coffee poster and 2 full-value product coupons (a $45 ARV).

Are you looking for a simple, delicious dinner to make this week? Well, you're in luck! I just that to share with you today! With just a few ingredients, you will have yourself a tasty, healthy meal!

Here's what you're going to need!

I love this meal because it's a one pot wonder! Simply add everything to your pot and add about 1 cup of water. Cook on a low-medium heat with lid. Continue to add small amounts of water to maintain consistency. Turn heat to low and allow to cook at least 30 minutes. By this time, your veggies will be soft and full of flavor!

Fab Pins of the Week!

Hello gorgeous! It's Friday, whoop whoop! Do you have any exciting plans for this weekend? I'm hoping to cross of at least a couple of current projects off my list! I tend to get myself into numerous projects at once, and then I get frustrated when I have to finish them all. Do you ever do this?

I'm in full swing of gathering inspiration for my home office, which I will begin to design late Summer/early Fall. I am still having a hard time as to finding exactly what I want! I tend to take my decorating slow, so once I start to get some major pieces in there, I think things will start to fall into place! Meanwhile, here's what's been inspiring me this week!
