Brunch: Crock Pot French Toast December 5, 2010 Ella Tags: Breakfast in bed, Brunch, Crockpot, French Toast HEY!!!! THIS POST IS 2+ Years old— I updated it recently to help answer the questions and comments and traffic this post has received The updated version is HERE. From December 2010: I love big weekend brunches! I can also say I hate all the dishes involved after a nap worthy brunch fest. I have tons of brunch recipes that until now I haven’t posted. Crock Pot French Toast: I got a crock pot for Christmas last year after having to borrow my mom’s for last years Thanksgiving dinner extravaganza. I made half of what her recipe calls for as my crockpot is a bit more on the petite side. Ingredients: 1/2 loaf of bread. I don’t recommend wheat bread generally though honey wheat is pretty good as french toast. Break up bread in half pieces. Combine: 6 eggs, 2 c milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp light brown sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Pour over bread if you’ve already placed in the crock pot. Like this:

71 Toes: "conference" cinnamon rolls My kids eyes light up when General Conference comes around. I'd love to say it's mostly because they get to listen to hours of spiritual inspiration on television. (Someday they'll join me in glee at that prospect...I LOVE can watch, listen or watch it HERE.) But for now I think that light in their eyes comes particularly from this knowledge: In our family conference = cinnamon rolls. Slow Cooker Vegetarian Cannellini Bean and Kale Soup Recipe with Shaved Parmesan As much as I whine about the cold weather, when you look at the Soup, Stew, and Chili section of my recipe archives you can tell I love cold-weather dishes, especially soup. Some of my favorite soups are the ones where I start with an idea and add things until it tastes good, but even when I have a recipe to start with like I did this time, I tend to improvise with most of the soups I make. This slow cooker soup that can cook all day while you're at work was adapted from one I saw in The Italian Slow Cooker, a book that's loaded with good ideas. I increased the amount of stock (and might use even more next time), added some dried Italian herbs, and served the soup with shaved Parmesan Cheese instead of croutons, for a Phase One soup that was warm and filling, and loaded with flavor. I used chicken stock because that's what I had in the freezer, but if you used vegetable stock and skipped the Parmesan, this would be a tasty vegan slow cooker soup.

Sister's Share It All: Favorite Fall Recipe This round of Sister's Share It All was Landen's pick, and she wanted us to share our favorite fall recipe. Throughout the fall and winter, I make a lot of soups and stews, but since it's still pretty warm around these parts (despite a few cool days last week), I've been taking advantage of some last summer meals of hamburgers, street tacos, and summery pastas. But since Landen didn't want a summer meal, I had to dig through my pinterest boards and see what I was making and loving last fall, and thus I ran across a cinnamon sugar pumpkin pull-apart bread that I made last year for a Halloween party. You guys, this bread is so delicious.

Pancake Squares We are pancake people. For breakfast or dinner we love our pancakes, especially my middle Little.

Sweet Li'l Strawberry Hand Pies A few years ago, around the time of the global financial crisis, I started thinking of ways to make money. My consulting job in advertising had pretty much stopped as clients suddenly stretched their arms across their desk, held down all of their papers and literally froze everything. I remember that there was a sunny weekend and Mr NQN and I were having a picnic. He was lying down on his stomach reading a book on the sun dappled grass.
