Orange-Lettuce-Tomato salad with Orange-Lime Vinaigrette topped with Feta Cheese and crushed Walnuts. With both thinly sliced salad tomatos and cherry tomatoes and cheddar cheese slices.

Bought the vinaigrette from a store but I suppose you can make your own. I just love cherry tomatoes :)

[Recipe] Low Sugar Heart Shaped French Toast

Heart Shaped French Toast

Something you can make for this coming Valentines day. The heart shapes was achieved using a heart shaped cutter (actually more like an fried egg shaper, the one that you place in a pan before you break the eggs - don't ask why I have that in my kitchen). This particular batch is made from a low sugar recipe.

1 loaf Sugar-free wheat bread
4 medium sized eggs
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon powder
250 ml evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
5 packets of Splenda
sugar-free pancake syrup

Cut out heart shaped bread using the cutter. Set aside bread trimmings (no need to waste perfectly good bread - just soak the trimmings on the same mixture later and follow the same recipe). On a shallow bowl, whisk the 4 eggs, add milk, salt, cinnamon and the sweetener and mix well. On a non-stick skillet, heat up some butter on low heat. Dip the heart shaped bread on both sides before placing it in the skillet. Allow a few minutes for one side to get light brown before flipping to the other side. Drizzle with the syrup and enjoy while still hot :)

Happy Valentines everyone!
