Handstamp for Mom

Gold Brass Hammered Mom Nameplate Necklace 5

Mother’s Day is less than one month away.  I don’t know about you, but I think there is much to be said about personalized gifts.  It becomes one of those keepsake items that you actually want to hold onto.  It also shows that thought and love were put into whatever the personalized item is.  This Mother’s Day I’ve created the “Mom” Hammered Envelope Necklace and of course you can personalize the hand stamp to whatever word you want.   I’m doing an early special for $23 for this necklace until April 30th, so be sure to get yours soon.

Make It Monday: Banana and Coconut French Toast

Banana Coconut French Toast 1

Yesterday was a lazy Sunday.  That usually happens when it’s rainy and gloomy outside.  We had a couple over ripe bananas in our fruit bowl, so I had a great idea of incorporating it into french toast.  My sister even said hmmm “If I ate french toast I’d definitely try that!”  I even got the thumbs up approval from all the men in my house and my nephew…so I guess it was pretty good.  Here’s the recipe and don’t worry it’s super easy!

Banana and Coconut French Toast

Servings: 5

3 large eggs

10 slices of bread of your choice

2 bananas (I used over ripened opens)

1/4 cup of shredded coconuts

2 tsp of vanilla

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 cup of coconut milk

2 tsp of coconut sugar

1.  Heat griddle to 325 degrees.

2.  In a bowl mash bananas and add shredded coconut.  Then add 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of vanilla and mix.

3. In a separate bowl beat eggs then add coconut milk, 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnamon and coconut sugar.

4. Take banana mixture and spread about 1 Tablespoon (give or take) between 2 slices of bread (like a sandwich).  Continue until you’ve made all the sandwiches needed.

5. Next dip both sides of sandwiches egg batter mixture and place on heated griddle, turn after a few minutes.  The sides should be golden brown.

6.  Serve with maple syrup.  We ate ours with raspberry syrup, which was yummy.

What Does A Modern Mom On The Go Look Like?

Mod Mom On The Go

“She tries to maintain her look, but is constantly on the go. The life of a woman with a big bag with her kids in tow. She needs energy for the run and shades to block the sun. Being accessible, managing calendars and comfy but cute shoes are a must. She’s like superwoman and keeps a smile and without a doubt maintains her style.”
