banana split gf french toast
A trip to the Farmer’s Market! I look forward to this time of year when so many varieties of fresh fruit are available. So, I stocked my basket with everything I can get my hands on.  I grabbed some red juicy strawberries, yellow ripe bananas, and golden pineapples. I knew exactly what I would make. I decided to make two versions of a French Toast.  I thought how much fun it would be to create a healthy breakfast French Toast and also a dessert French Toast. The breakfast could be served with fresh fruit.  The dessert version can include your favorite ice cream and other fun toppings.

I was raised in and around an Italian family. All my life I cooked and everyone around me cooked. It was my life and still is.  In 2013 I had to go gluten-free for health reasons. I was devastated to learn that I can no longer enjoy bread and pasta, that I was so used to eating every day. Can you imagine an Italian girl not eating bread or pasta? During the last few years, I have experimented with all kinds of different products. Searching for a good tasting bread has been a struggle because there was not much available. I was super excited to find Three Bakers Rye Style bread while visiting CT, my home State. I was even more excited to learn it is available locally here in FL. It is absolutely amazing!
