A Hawaiian Vacation Staple: Tropical French Toast Bake

Every year I spend one week on one of the many beautiful islands of Hawaii, and every year I make this Tropical French Toast bake! French toast bakes are so versatile and a snap to whip up. This makes it the perfect brunch dish to make on vacation since it requires few ingredients that can be purchased nearly anywhere, and can also be customized to suit your tastes or to suit what’s available in your region. Making this Tropical French Toast Bake always gets me in the Hawaiian mood, but of course each time I make it is slightly different due to what’s available! You can completely customize this recipe, of course, and can make it for any occasion, anytime, anywhere!

Bye, Summer: 3-Ingredient No-Churn Nutella Ice Cream

I love ice cream. In fact, I scream for ice cream. Seriously. Sometimes I get so excited for ice cream I start screaming my head off. And I know you do too. I mean, doesn’t everyone? But to make homemade ice cream, it seems you need one of those huge, expensive ice cream churners. And I could imagine that you wouldn’t want to buy one of those. So, here is a secret to lift my spirits and yours up. You don’t need an ice cream churner to make ice cream. Now is the time should be screaming for ice cream because making ice cream is no longer a tedious process consisting of tempering eggs, creating the perfect custard, churning the mixture, and then freezing it for what feels like decades. This is a much faster, much easier process that yields flavorful and creamy results! And as an added bonus, you don’t need to let your ice cream sit out before consumption! Straight from the freezer, no-churn ice cream is perfectly soft and creamy. So let’s get started on making 3-Ingredient No-Churn Nutella Ice Cream!
