Banana Lime Napoleon

I'm snowed in, Fargo's snowed in. A spectacular blizzard is rolling through the north country this weekend, and we're baking bread and making breakfast. Above is the latest recipe test for Farm Sanctuary - it looks like the breakfasts alone are going to make this cookbook a big hit. The recipe is actually a Plantain Lime Napoleon, but I used bananas. To help illustrate the photo, those are a pair of coconut milk pancakes on the bottom, with a layer of bananas on top of each. Crushed macadamia nuts are next, with a sweet and tangy lime juice and sweetened soy yogurt combo. On top is a waffle that was supposed to come out more as a crispy wafer. I fumbled that somehow - I haven't made many waffles, and it was a first run on a borrowed machine. It was really nummy, with maple and cinnamon and ground cardamon on top.

Yesterday I made this rye bread with caraway seeds, with a recipe from this month's Vegetarian Times. I'll be back with a reuben soon!

Holy hell, that looks tasty. I just ate lunch, but that could double as dessert. I can't wait for the cookbook!

Hope ya'll are okay up there in snowland! We were supposed to have some horrible ice storm in Memphis last night, but we got nothing but a little cold drizzle.
