Oh Decadence!

Decadence upon decadence. I have just eaten French toast stuffed with thick, gooey Nutella and topped with strawberries.  I worked all day getting the house ready for various contractors working on my remodel project.  I climbed up and down the step ladder packing away decorative items, taking shelves down, and moving furniture away from where they will be working.  It was definitely not a day for intense dinner cooking. I needed easy and indulgent.

I made the usual French toast – 2 slices of French bread soaked in egg substitute thinned with non-fat milk. When the French toast was done, I spread a tablespoon of Nutella (a hazelnut-chocolate spread) on it (this shows 2 slices for 2 servings).

I must say I was tempted to eat the slathered slices right then and there.  I may do this next time.  I topped the Nutella-covered slices with another slice of French toast, and then spooned defrosted sugared strawberries on them. If you have fresh strawberries and the time to add sugar and let them release their juices, I think this would be even better. This made one serving (I’ve pictured 2) with about 6 grams of fat/serving. What a low fat indulgence. If I had whipped cream in the refrigerator, I would have measured out a squirt or two.

I have lost 200 pounds. I did not do it through surgery – I don’t like knives and needles – or by joining a club, vigorous exercise, or rigorous dieting. I did it by gourmet cooking. To be precise, by cooking low fat, really delicious food. I love to cook as much as I love to eat. Food magazines are some of my favorite reading. I would feel deprived if I couldn’t have the sensuous experience of good food crossing my lips. This blog is about my perpetual feast, my passionate love of food, with recipes, photos, and occasional advice and principles that I have learned along the way.
