It's time again for
Secret Recipe Club (Secret Recipe Club) reveal! My secret blog assignment this month was Daily Dish Recipes, a really great blog written by Nicole, a crazed mom of 5 teens who loves cooking, writing, photography, blogging, and scrapbooking, among other things. And in her spare time, she... Well, never mind - on to the recipes!
Again, I had a difficult time choosing just one. Having no idea what kind of recipe I wanted to try, I just started scrolling through Nicole's blog. Her Green Onion Egg & Toast Tarts look really good, and so does this Coconut Vanilla Kahlua Cow. I must admit, I'm a bit jealous of those posts sponsored by Kahlua. I've loved Kahlua ever since my college roommate introduced me to it - for breakfast, on her cornflakes! (with milk)
Speaking of breakfast, when I saw this recipe for Pineapple Rum French Toast, I knew it was the one! And, oh, was I right. This stuff is amazing! Sweet and crunchy and gooey and just plain yummy!
Nicole's recipe called for coconut milk and rum extract, but I didn't have any coconut milk, and my rum extract didn't smell like I thought it should. So, I used the Malibu for the rum and coconut flavors and added the shredded coconut to get more coconut flavor.
With the brown sugar and the butter in this, you don't really need any extra syrup, but it's also good with a little extra drizzled over the top. I made some with brown sugar, water and coconut oil that was really good, with that extra bit of coconut flavor. I will definitely be making this again!
Potluck Corn, Black Bean & Cilantro Salsa Dip, too. Be sure to visit her blog for that recipe, but let me tell you, it is really good!
