Raise your hand if you haven’t bought any Christmas gifts yet this year (waving wildly over here). The good news is that I’ve heard that my cookbook, Love Real Food, makes a terrific gift. If you have purchased the book for yourself and your friends and family, thank you so much for your support. If you don’t have a copy yet, add it to your Christmas list!
One of my favorite gifts I’ve received over the years was a cookbook with a set of measuring spoons. It was a cute and thoughtful gift, and I reached for those measuring spoons in my drawer earlier today.
So, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite gift-worthy items to give along with a copy of Love Real Food. For even more gift ideas, don’t miss my 2017 holiday gift guide.
Head’s up: these items are affiliate links, meaning that I earn a small commission (at no cost to you) if you make a purchase through these links. Thanks for supporting Cookie and Kate!

Slow Cooker French Toast Casserole
1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cups raisins optional
9 Slices whole grain bread
3 cups finely diced uncooked apple pieces (Honey Crisp or Gala are both great in this recipe)
3 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup diced raw pecans chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Add the first 6 ingredients to a medium mixing bowl, whisk to combine. Lightly spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Add all the filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir to coat apple pieces, set aside.
Cut bread slices into triangles (that's in half, just triangle shaped). Place one layer of bread (6 triangles) on the bottom of the slow cooker, add ¼ of the filling and repeat until there are 3 layers of bread. Add the remaining filling to the top.
Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and cook on high 2 to 2-1/2 or low 4 hours, or until bread has soaked up the liquid.
3 Bananas (diced) can be substituted for apples.
Note: Drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup if desired.
