Dutch Baby

It is a snowy day here in New York.  There is about a foot of snow on the ground and it is still snowing!  Time to hunker down, relax under the blankets, and make a breakfast that makes you feel all warm and cozy inside.

While the snow was falling last night, I was researching for a yummy breakfast.  I already knew I wanted something pancake like and I came across this Vanilla Dutch Baby recipe from Food Network.  You can top this off with anything!  Fresh whipped cream, maple syrup, powdered syrup, etc.  The list goes on.

Since I'm working on a healthier me, I made a couple changes.  I swapped out whole milk for almond milk and a 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour for 1/4 cup of hazelnut meal/flour.  Best thing I ever did!  It gives the pancake a nice, subtle, nutty flavor.

The recipe makes 8 servings, each serving at 126 calories (without toppings.)

Chocolate Lava Cake

The hubby loves chocolate lava cake.  Any time we go out for dinner, I know it will be followed by chocolate lava cake.  I made this once for his birthday a few years back and never made it again.  How dare I?!  It is so easy to make and doesn't take a long time to bake.

By the way, I'll be making this for Valentine's Day <3
