Strawberry Banana French Toast & Calphalon Giveaway

Before I tell you how to win the Calphalon digital convection oven you must first read all about my strawberry banana french toast I baked up in my very own Calphalon digital convection oven that they so sweetly sent me.

For years I bugged the other half to buy me a convection oven to use endlessly for easy dinners. What I LOVE about this convection oven is the size. It fits a small pizza or a 9×13 cookies sheet. Yes, you can bake cookies in it in the summer without heating up the entire house. How brilliant is that in Texas’ super hot summer heat!

The oven is perfect for teenagers that have light cooking skills. On more then four occasions now my teenagers have used it to make their dinners while the other half and I headed out for date night. They love it too! The convection oven has custom time and temperature settings for bagels, pizza and cookies. The pull out crumb tray makes it a breeze to clean. It takes reading the manual and playing with the settings to get use to and remember how to work it. I already have it aced though!

Below the recipe is the giveaway but first here is a look at one of the easy make head or do the day of breakfast recipes we baked up in the digital convection oven.

    I’d use it to make whole grain pizzas for the kiddos. Lol, ok we’d use it. Three teenage boys you’d think they’d have better things to do than cook but no. Their focus these days is eating and they love to be involved. All I prayed for is they’d LOVE to do the dishes but them always helping is even better!!!

    I would make pizza first! I love homemade pizza, and I have been wanting a convection oven to make it even better and faster!

    The first thing I’d make in this great toaster oven would probably be a quick bread. Pumpkin? Cinnamon-raisin? Applesauce? Banana? Geez, I’m making myself hungry! LOL

    I would roast peppers with it – YUMMY. Then use the roasted peppers to make a great sandwich with toasted bread!
