    1. my own homemade nut butter and apricot jam

      1. Butter, sugar and cinnamon. For obvious reasons, it's not how I actually eat it most of the time!

          A favorite childhood treat that I haven't had in decades. How do you make it?

          My Mother would make a spread of butter, sugar and cinnamon, maybe some brown sugar? I'm not sure, spread it on thick and broil it under the stove-top broiler on her Chambers range until the topping was browned and bubbly. They you let it cool down and set a bit before eating. We didn't even own a toaster so 'toast' was always broiled, anyway.

          Probably at least 300-400 calories per slice.

            That's my go-to breakfast when I visit my parents. I spread soft butter on thick slices of white bread, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then toast. I rarely have white bread at home, but my parents do, so I have built in moderation.

              That's backwards from our method. I toast the bread, slather with butter and then top with lots cinnamon sugar (50/50 ratio). Any extra cinnamon sugar gets tapped off. The result is a crunchy bit of toast with a pretty thick layer of spicy and sugary goodness on top. Delicious, but oh so decadent.

              I must say, though, the idea of broiling after adding the cinnamon sugar is intriguing...,

                sweet memoires, thats how we did it too. so good. especially on a cold morning with a cup of hot cocoa.

                for toast now: sometimes peanut butter, most of the time just jelly or jam, if i'm being decadent i LOVE butter, but usually omit it. :-(

                  When at camp in northern Wisconsin as a kid, we were always given oatmeal and cinnamon toast for breakfast. I put brown sugar or maple syrup on the oatmeal, and then eat the cinnamon toast - now for nostalgic reasons, repeat at home.

          2. Roasted Almond Butter from Costco and Honey

              What is so special about Costco? Is its almond butter that much better?

              1. re: Chemicalkinetics

                The price is what's special: $6.49 for a 26-oz jar of Maranatha. Most stores charge $7 or $8 for a small 12-oz jar. But I'm actually not crazy about it anymore - it's really runny, and I stopped buying it after they switched from glass jars to plastic. Now I stick with Trader Joe's in the glass jar, and at $5.99 for 16 oz it's still a better deal than most stores (Whole Foods 365 brand is the same price, but I don't like theirs as much).

                Back on topic, I don't eat bread anymore. But I used to LOVE toast, and my favorite toppings were:
                - butter
                - butter & cinnamon sugar
                - apricot or sour cherry preserves
                - PB or almond butter (honey & cinnamon optional)
                - butter and melted muenster

            2. I almost never eat toast at home but when I go out and it comes with the breakfast I order, I am hoping for strawberry or apple jelly. Usually no butter.
