No matter who you are or what you like, there’s a French toast recipe for you. Between the bread type, toppings, and fillings, the possibilities are endless. That’s why we’ve compiled our top 10 French toast recipes for you right here. Get your skillet ready.

1. Crock Pot Creamy Banana French Toast

This recipe gets extra brownie points for utilizing the glorious crock pot. No need to dread the long process of slaving over the stove making endless waves of French toast. Just layer your bread and bananas in the crock pot, cover with a milk/cinnamon/honey mixture, and go back to bed until your breakfast is ready. Easy as pie… or French toast.

2. Savory Feta Cheese French Toast

If you’re feeling hipster, try out this savory version of the normally sweet classic. Adding the feta cheese not only as a garnish but also in the egg mixture will give your meal an extra dose of creamy goodness. Plus, this would make for quite an impressive dish at a brunch gathering.

3. Cinnamon French Toast

If you’re best buds with cinnamon buns, then this recipe is for you. Assembled in a casserole fashion, you can pop a pan of this treat in the fridge and bake it the next day. Or, if you just can’t wait to try it, bake it immediately – no judgment here. Top with your favorite fruit, drizzle with some syrup, and your taste buds will be singing your praises.

4. Creme Brûlée French Toast

Everything about this recipe screams classy. The brown sugar and Grand Marnier are just what you need to get your day going. Plus, it calls for Challah bread which everyone knows is the best foundation of a great French toast. You could even grab your culinary torch if you feel like getting really fancy.

5. Classic French Toast

Plain Janes, listen up. If you’re unsure of which recipe to start with, try this one. You can’t go wrong with the original French toast. The simplicity of the soaked bread all warm and gooey is beautiful – no frills needed. Everyone is sure to enjoy this dish.

6. Baked Stuffed French Toast

Think of this recipe as a sandwich’s cousin. Gruyere and ham sit inside the pockets in the rustic bread and melt in your mouth. Simple, but unique. A huge benefit of this recipe is getting to bake it instead of trying to use four skillets at once. Thank you, Martha Stewart.

7. Brioche French Toast with Asparagus and Orange Beurre Blanc

If you actually know what orange beurre blanc is, I applaud you. This sauce is made by boiling and reducing white wine, orange juice, shallots, cream, and butter. Already drooling? Me too. Also adorning the French toast is some roasted asparagus. Whip up this dish, and you’ll look like a pro.

8. French Toast Roll Ups

This recipe wins the fun prize. Not only are they easy to make, but they also look pretty spiffy. The cinnamon and sugar filling and coating will satisfy your cinnamon bun and French toast cravings. Plus, dipping the warm roll ups in syrup is practically a party in and of itself.

9. Pumpkin Baked French Toast

No need to feel guilty after devouring a serving (or two) of this dish. You’ll have many chances to substitute healthier ingredients – prefered milk, bread, sweetener, and even the option to nix the butter. Assemble it the night before, and wake up to a comforting dose of fall weather any time of the year.

10. French Toast in a Mug

It doesn’t get any easier than this! If you have five minutes and a mug, you can make French toast. The recipe calls for chocolate chips, but feel free to add any mix-ins of choice – use your imagination. When that microwave dings, you’ll be melting at the sight in front of you.

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

Review Your Past Flow

Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
