Cinnamon Raisin Squared

I totally crashed on the couch last night at like 9:30 – I just could not keep my eyes open! I wanted to stay up to watch the new Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, but I only saw a few minutes of it in between my closing eyelids  ;) Oh well! I guess I needed the sleep.

And I got up on time today, unlike yesterday.

I was hungry when I woke up today and was excited to try these new Alvarado St. bagels I found at Martin’s this weekend.


I loved their flaxseed bread I got a few months ago, but this was the first time I had ever seen their bagels.


I toasted up one cinnamon raisin bagel and topped it with a Tbsp of cinnamon raisin pb. I know some people would think cinnamon on cinnamon would be too much, but I love it. I don’t think there’s such a thing as too much cinnamon.


With a sliced local gala apple on the side, this should keep me full for a while.


Off to work!


What’s your favorite type of apple?

I love galas, honeycrisp, and pink lady, but I’ll pretty much eat an apple as long as it’s good.

  1. Honeycrisp, Jazz, Golden Delicious, Jonagold…

  2. Those bagels look yummy :)
    I’m like you, I’ll eat any apple as long as it’s good!

  3. Fuji is my favorite but I’d love to try honeycrisp!

  4. For a snack I like the sweeter ones better, like Gala. But for cooking I love Boscop! We have a huge Boscop apple tree on our grounds in France and I know I’m looking forward to many homemade compotes and applesauces this year!

  5. I did stay up for DDD, but don’t worry–they usually air the reruns 100 more times in the next month (I just love Guy-what can I say?).

    As for apples, I like Gala or Red Delicious when I’m snacking. I used to be hooked on Fuji, but now I just think they’re a bit watery and tasteless.

  6. I’m a honeycrisp and gala kinda girl. :)

  7. My favorite apples are honey crisp by leaps and bounds. I also only eat apples in the fall when they are in season because otherwise, they just don’t taste good to me.

  8. I love Honeycrisp, Fuji, Pink Lady, Granny Smith…

  9. Honeycrisp… ’em!

    You can NEVER have too much cinnamon. I have some every day. I’ve put cinnamon on some crazy things….like eggs…and its good! My favorite splurge breakfast used to be a cinnamon cheese muffin with a cinnamon latte. Man… those were the days!

  10. you’re right…there is no such thing as too much cinnamon! my favorite type of apple is granny smith :)

  11. Cinnamon on cinnamon is amazing! I love that plate!

  12. galas are awesome. and pink ladies. never had a honeycrisp!
    my friend swears by braeburn. =D


  13. That bread company is good! I’ve never tried their bagels, but their california sprouted grain bread is yum yum!
    I love DINERS DRIVE INS AND DIVES!!!! I have it saved on my DVR so I may get back in bed right now and watch it!
    My favorite apples are fuji, jazz, braeburn, and pink lady!

  14. no such thing as too much cinnamon!!!!! :-D
    Gala’s my favorite apple, too, but i don’t really discriminate.

  15. there’s no such thing as too much cinnamon!

  16. I agree…no such thing as too much cinnamon!!

    I LOVE apples. My old favorite used to be golden delicious, because they are softer. The hard ones hurt my jaw! But my NEW fave is definitely honeycrisps. SO sweet!

  17. Honeycrisp or pink lady! Oh and I am loving the winesaps we got this weekend. Have a great day lady!

  18. Hi Brandi,

    I went on a pre K class trip last week to the apple orchards and they handed out macoun apples, none of us have ever heard of them before, but watching how all the kids ate them, we bought bags of them. So my dd would say macouns. Me, I am a red delicious girl, something about a nice dark red apple. But sooner or later you always rub off on me, Just so you know, I have been eyeing the other apples.

  19. I like a red delicious
    One week that bread was on sale very cheap at Stop and Shop so I really wanted to try it. We went to not 1, or 2, but 3 stop and shops looking for it. We even called and they said they had it. But we never found it :-(

  20. excited to meet you at foodbuzz festttttttt :)

  21. honeycrisps & cortlands!! yum :)

  22. I did the same thing last night. I fell asleep on the couch while Hunni had an evening meeting. Then he chased me to bed about 9PM.

    I love almost any apple but it depends on the flavor if I eat it alone or with something.

    I hear you on the cinnamon. I douse things and most people think its too much. But I LOVE it!

  23. Love me a red delicious! I’ve never heard of a pink lady. I swear I learn something new from blogging everyday!

  24. My step-son is the same about cinnamon – so at Christmas I make him cinnamon chex mix and for his birthday, I make him carrot cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting!

    FUJI Apples Rule!

  25. Those bagels look so good! I have to agree with Fuji & Gala, definitely my favorite.

  26. I completely agree about cinnamon! I never really cared about cinnamon until I started making oatmeal. Now, I can’t get enough of it!

  27. I made sure to tape Diners Drive in’s and Dive’s its my FAVORITE show. heheh! I’m just like you, any apple is a good apple in my book! :)

  28. My fave apple is Cortland, and honeycrisps are a close second! The bagels sound good!

  29. I am a honeycrisp and pink lady gal alll the way! I’ve had Alvarado St. sprouted sourdough bread and it was good! Need to try the bagels :)

  30. you can NEVER have too much cinnamon :)

    i always throw a bunch in my oatmeal before and after its cooked!! makes it taste extra deee-lish.

    and yumm a-street bagels are a childhood fave of mine! my dad always has the sprouted ones stocked in our house!!

    And hmm, galas and fujis are my fave apples!

  31. Cinn raisin bagels are my favorite! Nothing like too much cinnamon to start your day :-)
