This Mother’s Day, treat your mom to a special brunch… Make her this delicious french toast! Personally, this is a very special Mother’s Day for me, since I am now the proud mother of both a son and a daughter. My little girl will be 3 weeks old this Saturday, the 7th.
I swear buttermilk is magic. I’ve dwelled on this before. Buttermilk seems to turn everything to gold. Super-moist, super-delicious gold. Anyway, I needed a simple, summery, breakfasty, cake-like-but-not-dessert-like recipe to make this morning.
When we went to California in November, we spent a day eating our way through Los Angeles with our good friend, Amanda, from Kevin and Amanda . Amanda had a long list of food places for us to try. We started our food feast at The Griddle Cafe in Hollywood. Amanda recommended the “Recess Time” pancake, which is a double-filled cinnamon streusel pancake.
Herb Baked Eggs Adapted from Ina Garten I'm a huge fan of Ina Garten. I think I've seen every episode of her cooking show. Twice! I love her delicious and simple approach to French food.
Well I'm back from the beach and back to real life as we were greeted by a falling down fence due to some storm damage, a lot of weeds and a giant spider. Fun stuff. Today was spent cleaning up the messes and doing vacation laundry so since that isn't too fun, I'll tell you about the French toast casserole that I made one morning while we were on vacation.
A brief tutorial on how to make crêpes at home, no crêperie required. Just you, your stove and a bit of batter and you’ll have a plate full of thin pancakes in no time at all. I’ve always wanted to live abroad, even if just for a short time. While the dream of leaving and exploring was there, the reality was and is that I remain fully rooted in the Midwest. In college I was a single parent.
Un-freaking-belivable is what these pancakes are. Really. Please, go home, scrounge up these ingredients and make these. Right now.
My son’s favorite game in the whole world is Let’s Play With The Other Baby! You Know, The One We Keep In The Mirror. We bring him over to this giant mirror in the hallway and he goes berserk, he paws at the “other” baby, kicks his legs, squeals and laughs. It cracks us up too. Babies: they’re so cute when they’re kinda confused! It took us a few weeks to realize how sad this game actually is.
