Bonjour Mon ami! Am I ever glad its Friday afternoon right now- I just finished an exam where I literally wrote out of my…derrier. I swear with EVERY exam I have ever done, everything I study is NOT on it. Seriously. EVERY. EXAM.

Anyway let’s not dwell on that, its almost the WEEKEND! I almost forgot but yesterday was my 100th post! I’m so thankful to have shared it with Amy, who is also making an appearance on here this weekend…I should just rename this Amy Week!

Have you guys heard this recent article about the man who sued his wife over giving birth to ugly children, in particular his daughter? For those unaware, the man successfully sued his wife for $120,000 because she married him without telling him that she had prior it, undergone $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery. I still don’t know what to think of it….

There has been a trend with Summer approaching for people to decrease their meat consumption and focus on vegetarian sources to ‘optimum health.’ Yes, another fad that they are trying to portray. I just look at it in a humorous way.

Hummus please!

Similarly, every front page of any fitness magazine is centralised around burning a certain amount of calories in the shortest amount of time. I should write the Arman Weekly. The cover (boy) for the first issue will be this. BOSS.

I love using the bench press at the gym but I’m always wary about increasing the weights in fear of dropping the bar. If only this could happen…

Now for the recipe. A fair while back, I talked about how I LOVED the smell of cinnamon raisin bread however the taste was always underwhelming. Not that it was bad- its just I always expected to TASTE the cinnamon and actually have more than 5 raisins. Last week, Khushboo posted a recipe for a flatbread she had been (subconsciously) taunting me with for the last couple of months. Since she posted the recipe, I had made it at least once a day!

A few days ago, after leaving my exam I went past a cafe which had the most tempting smell of cinnamon raisin bread. Immediately, the craving struck. Knowing I was not going to go out and buy an entire loaf to be once again disappointed, I decided to see if I could mould the basic flat bread recipe and put a cinnamon raisin spin on it. I wanted the flat bread to be thicker (so I could lather butter on it) and more dense so with abit of kitchen magic, I found success!

  1. When we were young my mum only ever gave raisin flat bread to us as our ‘treat’ – we loved it, and to this day I think her raisin flat bread was one of the best fruit breads. I will have to try adding cinnamon to it – yummo!
    I heard about that couple. I read that the photo attached to the stories online is not actually the couple as they only had one child (a girl) before he divorced & sued her. When I told me husband about it he wasn’t surprised; apparently they’ve been predicting this would happen in China!?

  2. er YUM! I’m so happy that you are loving the oat flatbread recipe and even happier that you remixed it into a sweet alternative. LOVE cinnamon raisin anything and can’t wait to try this out. My sister is visiting this weekend and I just emailed her this post with the subject line: “Sunday brekkie?” Will let you know how it turns out :)! I read that article yesterday and was so horrified- the things people do for money! Deceit or not, the father has probably ruined his daughter’s self-esteem for the rest of her life.

  3. I would laugh at the calories burnt joke, but after my recent luck in the kitchen, I should probably refrain. That being said, I’ve never tried baking my own bread because working with yeast intimidates me — just one more step that can go horribly wrong. Flatbread, though? Sounds perfect. And I know what you mean about the underwhelming flavour in cinnamon raisin bread — it’s even worse if the raisins taste burnt.

    Happy Friday!!

    1. On the same wavelength, my friend. I actually bought yeast yesterday to try out Lindsay’s pretzel bites…although I am VERY nervous. Anything requiring yeast talks about letting dough sit…sit in a chair?

      Don’t even get me started on the burnt raisin. I swear its an art in itself to get the toast to that perfect non burnt raisin state.

  4. I LOVE this variation! Minus the raisins…. I have never been able to get down with dried fruit. Weird, I know. I’mloving making every variation possible of K’s flat bread too! I tried it with a little egg for make breakfast too! All cinnamon. 😉

    1. I actually despise dried fruit on its own- it has to be in baked goods or in raisin toast.

      …I went through a time where I carried cinnamon with me when I travelled… don’t even get me started on the red pepper flakes.

  5. Cinnamon raisin bread = heavenly. Definitely giving this a shot! Oh meant to tell you I adapted your kabocha cookies and used pumpkins and peanuts instead. Hope you don’t mind 🙂 that is crazyyy about the “ugly” family. So sad. Making bread that actually rises terrifies me so I stick to the easy stuff. Like this.

  6. Going to try making K’s oatbread this weekend! I like the sound of your version too.

    And this weekend I plan to hang out with friends and relax in the Miami sun!!

  7. Haha, oh my Gosh the Arman Weekly cover!! I need a membership for your magazine please !! I am sooooo going to make that bread. i bought more oats beginning of this week but still didn ‘t make it. This is the sign to finally rush into the kitchen. Yay for one last exam ! Get it caro mio !!

  8. Now I have even more of a reason to make bread at home 😉 I’ve experimented with it before and homemade irish soda bread is my favourite, but I’ve yet to make flatbread…this looks pretty perfect though! And I hadn’t heard of that family, but that’s just depressing. His daughter is going to need a LOT of therapy…

  9. What!?! I hadn’t heard about that man suing his wife for birth ugly children. That’s just the most insane thing ever! Totally loving this recipe! I can’t believe how easy it is and I’m pretty sure I have all the ingredients at home right now. Yay! This would work as a perfect morning or afternoon snack. I’ve made bread in the bread machine before…does that count!?! 😉

    1. I know! Its terrible- and apparently its not uncommon over there!

      I’ve been snacking on it like a goon- just check out the instagram. Bread in any baked form counts!

      Speaking of instagram…When are we going to get some EatGreatBEgreat action? 😉

  10. I can’t believe that guy sued his wife!! That’s so crazy. I’ve made quick breads before, but never flat bread. This recipe looks so easy! I have to work tomorrow so I didn’t make any other weekend plans. I’m just excited to sleep in and stay in the same zip code for 24 hours on Sunday!

  11. There’s nothing quite like the smell of cinnamon and raison! My fave. Yum.

    I can’t believe that article. I read it. I’m simply speechless. He said “I married for love” but now he doesn’t love her any more based on her looks and ‘ugly’ children they have together. I’m still not convinced it’s real!

    Thanks for linking up to #RECIPEFRIDAY my friend!

  12. that herbivore image and the 800 cal image are HILARIOUS! i am so that dino who brought hummus. you know what’s strange but good on cinnamon bread? TUNA! it’s true. try it!

  13. I am in love with that recipe!!! I LOVE easy & quick – ask Laura – I always complain when I have to cut or grate things! 😉

    I heard about that crazy story about the “ugly” a few months back over here – don’t get me started! 😉

    1. Hahaha, that is why I over gloss so many recipes to stick to no bake ones… even then it takes twice the time!

      You know what is worse? The comments on the article said such actions or antics are not uncommon.

  14. SO insane about the man suing his wife! But also insane that that little tidbit of THAT MUCH cosmetic surgery wasn’t brought up prior to the nuptials! 😯 And omg, the “how to burn 800 calories”? I had to get up and carry the laptop into the next room to share that one with the man-friend! Bahaha! Gah, I hate all the diet talk when once summer hits…it’s like HELLO sun…now bring on the body shaming! What?!

    Love love LOVE cinnamon raisin bread, but I’m right there with ya…never enough cinnamon OR raisins! I’ve actually made a loaf once…a couple of years ago, but gah, it took for-freaking-ever! I love homemade bread…storebought just doesn’t compare, but ain’t nobody got time for that! 😉 Ps, Ever noticed that the loaves that DO have the best balance of cinnamon raisin goodness weigh like 20 pounds? Haha!

    This weekend….what am I doing? NOT working! NOT stressing! And unfortunately, last night NOT sleeping…but I hope to remedy that tonight after a little get together with friends involving some pork butt, deviled eggs, potato salad, a fire, and MARSHMALLOWS!!! Oh, and the man-friend promises to take me to Costco after he gets done putting together his new toy (table saw)! Score! 😀 <- You know you're a foodie when… Lol

    1. Haha, glad the OTHER man in your life liked it 😉 Don’t come to australia right now. I’m going to dedicate a post on the stupid cover pages this month…..The chia seed power pop diet. WTF. It sounds like chia seeds are giving birth or something!

      So true about cinnamon raisin bread chock full of the good stuff weighing a tonne… and the associated price tag with it. I was telling Amanda about how there is also the fine line between burning cinnamon raisin toast…stupid bread.

      Saw on instagram some amazing marshmallow antics…so glad you enjoyed yourself. YOU. DESERVE. IT.

      Now make me a pork butt pancake.

  15. I think that’s horrible about the man suing his wife over ugly children! Seriously, how shallow can people be?! Geez. As for “Harry Spotter”, love it! 🙂 Oh, & totally feel ya on writing an exam out of your butt. 😉 It sucks when that happens.

    1. I hope so- its so good! I saw a recipe for a ‘quick’ bread involving letting dough sit for 2 hours…It made me question their definition of ‘quick’

      PS a part of my upcoming MIMM is dedicated to you and Laura 😉

  16. I read about that man suing his wife awhile ago too. It kind of made me sick to my stomach. And makes me never want to get married… Haha. Just kidding kind of. But I also don’t ever plan on getting plastic surgery so that covers my bases there. 🙂

    Really though, I don’t understand how that man won his case. I want to say that nothing like that would ever fly here, but I just don’t know.

    You successfully brightened my day with the burnt pizza and Harry “Spotter” pictures 🙂

    1. Hahaha, we’re still young we have time to decide these things…including plastic surgery! :p

      Glad those pictures humoured you…. I saved that harry potter referenced one you posted last week… Genius. When I come to the states we’re having a HP marathon….via audiotape. Books > movie.

  17. That is so horrible about that man and suing his wife. It is just not right.

    That cinnamon raisin bread looks so delicious!! I’m going to have to try it. Which means buying raisins!

    I love that burnt pizza picture!

    I also have the same fear of the bench press and shared it with Tara the tip she gave me is that you can always just bring it to your chest and roll it down your body and sit up instead of thinking you have to lift it back up.

    1. That sounds so smart- I’m so excited, 1 more week and then I’ll start one! although one time, I dropped the bar similarly and it was hurting my chest and the guy standing next to me just watched then continued using the cable cords..argh!

      Its terrible, isn’t it- and ironically, the comments in that article said it was not uncommon there!

      I have a cheese twist on the flatbread for my Monday (afternoon) post…knowing how much you enjoy cheese it might beat out the cinnamon raisin one 😉

  18. So raisins are not my favorite, otherwise I’d love that flatbread!

    I read that short article you linked about the husband suing the wife…I like how he said, “I married my wife out of love” but then they had problems once he found out she wasn’t naturally beautiful. Cannot believe she has to pay him 120k!! Also how messed up are the kids going to be psychologically when they find out their father thought they were so ugly he sued their mother?? Ca-ray-zy.

    1. I really despise dried fruit by itself, but in a bread….thats the only way 😉 I’m going to post a cheese twist on it for Monday’s post.. so maybe if you like cheese haha!

      Exactly- the kids are the ones who suffer through all of this. Stupid parents on BOTH counts.

    1. Not to mention frying it in butter! i know ‘ghee’ and ‘coconut oil’ are the new ‘frying’ means but eggs fried in butter…Ok my breakfast is sorted for tomorrow. And the only reason to make it thicker is to add topping. Defeats the purpose of ‘flat’bread. 😉

  19. suing for ugly children? GOOD GRIEF. I do not even know what to say. congratulations, Arman – you have succeeded in my being speechless. it happens rarely.

    can I make this with like, 2 raisins? HA. I actually like raisins in cookies, and *sometimes* in bread… the golden ones are okay in bread… 🙂

  20. I love flat bread, and the addition of cinnamon and raisin just makes me smile. And while I can appreciate that the husband was upset to learn his wife had all this plastic surgery….but WTF, they are still your kids, dude.

  21. I love cinnamon raisin bread…and this looks fantastic! I never make bread, but I think I am going to have to try it. And the man suing his wife…I don’t even know what to say. One, that much plastic surgery and she never thought to tell him? And two, they’re his kids! What the heck is wrong with him?!!! They’re both idiots in my opinion. I guess that is a strong word but really?! I just can’t even fathom.
