Jars by Sarah Böttger

Juuri Jars by Sarah Böttger

Germany-based designer Sarah Bottger keeps it modular with her nifty Juuri series of glassware. By taking one basic bottle shape, making dozens of them and making cuts at eight different locations, Bottger cleverly yields a myriad of containers, from jars to glasses to decanters and everything in between.

Almond-crusted pumpkin stuffed french toast

for the filling:

4 ounces cream cheese
3-4 tablespoons canned pumpkin
1/2 cup-1 cup powdered sugar

for the french toast:

sliced bread 
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

for the almond crust:
1 cup almond flour

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

for cooking and serving:

pure maple syrup

1. Mix together the ingredients for the filling with an electric mixer, adding as much sugar you need until you reach a thick, spreadable consistency. Spread a generous amount on half the slices of bread. Press the other slices on top to make sandwiches.
2. Mix together the ingredients for the french toast liquid in a shallow baking dish such as a pie plate. Mix together the ingredients for the almond crust in a separate baking dish. Soak the “sandwiches” in the french toast liquid first, and then dip in the almond crust mixture and coat well.
3. In a non-stick skillet set over medium-low heat, melt about a teaspoon of butter, and fry the stuffed french toast on both sides until golden. Place in a warm (220 degrees) oven. Repeat with remaining toasts. Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
