French Toast Recipe!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Today I thought I’d share a delicious breakfast recipe. Sundays were always a day in my family when we would enjoy a yummy home-made breakfast or brunch. I feel like that is were my love for breakfast comes from. Now, my own traditions include weekend breakfasts. Typically, we eat eggs, but on occasion I enjoy something sweet. Here is an easy and fast French toast recipe that I hope you enjoy!

French Toast Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 8 slices of thick bread-I use my whole grain bread
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use organic)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter for griddle/pan

Directions

  1. Heat griddle on medium heat. 
  2. Mix together your eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt. 
  3. One slice at a time, gently coat your bread with the mixture on each side. Be careful not to drench the bread. 
  4. Place your coated bread on the griddle. About a minute or two on each side. Press on the center of the bread while toasting to get an even texture. 
  5. Remove from griddle and add butter, powdered sugar, and syrup to taste. Enjoy! 

Weekend Furniture Hunting!

Happy Monday, everyone!

This weekend was really busy for me. Saturday included getting up early in the morning to go to yard sales. I didn’t get anything major, but afterwards we had delicious breakfast at a little restaurant called Zee Best CafΓ©. I got French toast with sausage links. It was so good!! My mom got biscuits & gravy, which I took a taste of (okay, more like I ate a biscuit).

On Sunday I went to a salvage flea market. There were so many cute refurbished & upcycled items! I ended up buying a salvaged dessert buffet table from the 50’s to go under my TV in my living room. I also got a bar cart, which is so beautiful! I am waiting to give a full view of these items until I move into my apartment. That’s a future post I can’t wait to do! Afterwards we got cupcakes from a pumpkin farm, which were so yummy!

How was your weekend? Comment below!

Bananas Foster French Toast!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I thought I’d give a recipe for some delicious Bananas Foster French Toast! Add a cup of coffee, & enjoy!

(Recipe found here.)

Ingredients:

Banana sauce:
4 ounces (1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
4 bananas, peeled and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slicesFrench toast:
3 large whole eggs
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 slices (3/4-inch thick) brioche or challah bread
3 tablespoons (about) unsalted butter
Whipped cream (optional)

Directions:

Make the banana sauce: Melt the butter in a large stainless-steel skillet with a lid over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and whisk until it melts into the butter. Add the water and whisk until smooth. Cover and set aside while you prepare the French toast.

Prepare the French toast: Whisk the whole eggs and egg yolks in a large bowel to blend. Gradually whisk in the milk, cream and vanilla. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat and soak until they are completely moistened with the custard.

Heat a heavy, large griddle pan over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter on the griddle. Working in batches, transfer the soaked bread to the pan with a slotted spatula and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Add more butter as needed for each batch.

To serve, add the banana slices to the sauce and cook until the bananas are almost tender, tossing gently, about 3 minutes. Transfer the French toast to plates. Top each with the banana sauce and whipped cream, if desired.

Beach Week Update!

It’s hard for me to do posts since I am away from reliable Wi-Fi. I figured I’d post today since I have quite a bit to share. Enjoy!

We decided to get brunch one day at The Angler. Talk about good food! I got Banana’s Foster French Toast, delish!

We got muffins before the meal, and we took our extras home. πŸ˜‰

We also ate outside, and the view was great!

Last night, we got to watch fireworks. So pretty!

Finally, today we did some inlet shopping. I found this cute Audrey Hepburn canvas:

I should be back to my daily posting schedule soon. But I gotta enjoy the beach while I can! πŸ™‚
