French Toast Bake

French Toast Bake
Last weekend I made a French Toast Bake for a bridal shower brunch. I love this recipe because it is so easy (Fia could do this by herself), economical (most expensive ingredient was the Texas Toast at $2), & oh-so-delicious! The best part is that it is made the day before so there is no fuss on the day you consume it....perfect for a Sunday afternoon or brunch. This food post will be step-by-step as I take you through the entire recipe with me...as I like to make my own tweeks & people get mad at me for not telling them EXACTLY what I did. *My additions to the recipe will be in red* Before I begin....I must note that I was making a double batch (two 9 x 13 pans) so the pictures have double the ingredients. ** For those who are not familiar with Texas Toast, it is thickly sliced bread. Ingredient Checklist 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick) 1 cup brown sugar 1 loaf Texas toast 4 eggs 1 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla Powdered sugar for sprinkling Directions 1.

Cinnamon Sugar Churros Keeping with the Mexican theme going on here, I’ve decided to share with you one of my proudest recent accomplishments: CHURROS! I conquered my fear of frying in hot oil, and feel quite silly for not trying this sooner. Sure it was slightly terrifying at times, but with Ryan’s help and just a little screaming, we made it out with no injuries and with some really freakin’ delicious churros.

Beautiful Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Wreath & The Inspiration Behind It All Steelmom While watching videos for the new Kraft Cooking Creme, at the Real Women of Philadelphia, I came across this recipe I found so intriguing. The RWoPer that inspired me to make this wreath is known as "Steelmom". For me, her nickname has always been perfect for her, since she is someone I admire for being a hard working mother inside and outside of the home. She must be made of steel to do all that she does, working full time as a sales representative for a steel mill, raising a family, and not to mention creating the most beautiful hand painted ornaments. Dessert Recipe: No-Bake Boston Cream Pie Strata Cookbook Recipe But even with making your own homemade pudding from scratch, this recipe doesn't take more than an hour to put together, and then it is all done. Since it needs to be refrigerated before serving, it's the perfect thing to make ahead of time for a dinner party. I love making this the night before a big party, or even the morning of. People always go wild for it. If you want to really take it over the top, you can always make homemade graham crackers too!

Portobello Pesto Pizza One of my favorite things about playing around in the kitchen is trying to recreate favorite meals or desserts that I’ve had at a restaurant. It’s great to enjoy food out, sure, but it’s even better when you can duplicate it (or maybe even improve on it) from the comfort of home. This pizza is one of my latest projects in recreation. (You might remember previous projects: Fig and Almond Cheesecake, Cosi Signature Salad, and White Sicilian Pizza.) Here in Pittsburgh there is an establishment called Church Brew Works. In the Lawrenceville neighborhood of the city, St. Cinnamon Baked French Toast This is a scrumptious make-ahead breakfast casserole that’s so easy to prepare, it should be illegal. Leave it plain as the recipe dictates, or throw in blueberries or apple chunks to give it a little more dimension. And what I love about this dish is that you can decrease the cooking time a bit in order to result in a more moist bread pudding-like dish…or bake it a little longer to make the final product more crispy and “done.” Perfect for guests, kids, foreign dignitaries, heads of state, dimwits, dillweeds…and me.

Butterbeer Cupcakes As promised last week, here is another post dedicated to my jaunt to sunny Florida. But instead of featuring their famous fruit, this time I’m focusing one of their famous attractions — The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Last spring we spent our entire trip at Disney World (as evidenced by my Mickey Cupcakes), but since then Universal has opened Harry Potter land, and so Ryan, my brother Scott, and I had a reason to go back in 2011.

Baked French Toast It's not my day to post a recipe, but I couldn't help sharing this absolutely delicious recipe with y'all! It. is. so. good. I found it last night while searching for a make-ahead recipe for breakfast (I'm trying to get as much done the night before as possible so I can get all my exercising in early....which is a good thing cuz this ain't no diet-friendly recipe!). Cinnamon Swirl Bread I made this bread late at night and poured a glaze on top to intensify it even more. I knew there was a problem before cutting into it because it was sunken in the middle. I found out that the innards of the bread were not fully cooked. I went back to the website to see what others had said about the cake, and they mentioned that the gooey center was the best part, but my cake was a bit too gooey. I heated the cake up more, which caused the sides of the bread to burn even more and the top of the bread to form an extra layer of crust from the glaze I had put on before.

3 Weeks of Cheap Dinners, ready in under 15 minutes Thanks to an insanely busy schedule, my husband and I had some really poor eating habits. We know that fast food barely qualifies as food, but ended up in the drive thru more often then is humanly acceptable. When we started making better life decisions, this became a glaringly obvious problem that needed to be corrected. Customizable Bread Bowl Breakfast If I ask my (almost) 5-year-old what cooking show she wants to watch with Mom, she always says, “Pioneer Woman!” She adores Ree’s show! After one recent episode where Ree made soup in bread bowls, my little girl was obsessed with the idea of eating her bowl when she finished her soup. (It IS pretty cool if you ask me.) She’s been hounding me to make them for several weeks now. Since bread bowls are pretty substantial (especially for a 5-year-old) I was so excited when I saw a miniature version made from crusty rolls!

S'mores Cookies I LOVE pot-luck dinner parties — especially when the instructions from the hostess ask that each attendee bring their own bottle of wine. This was the case last weekend when I was in NYC with a group of my best friends from college. Three out of the five of us at the party have food blogs (T and M), so you can imagine how excited we all were to get together to cook and above all, eat! Obviously I grabbed the dessert course, and turned to this cookie recipe I had been drooling over from Lovin from the Oven. Since I was traveling from CT, I prepared the dry mix ahead of time to bring with me, and was able to whip up the dough while Tyla and Marissa were making dinner. By the time we had finished the delicious dinner course, my dough had rested in the fridge for just the right amount of time, and within 10 minutes we had warm, gooey crack/cookies.

breakfast pizza 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.
