French Toast à L’Orange

Good morning, Sunshine! Isn’t it amazing what a little sunlight can do for your soul? After a week of snowy weather and cloudy skies, seeing the sunlight beaming through our window this morning was a welcome sight and made this French Toast à L’Orange taste just a bit like Spring!...more

Baked French Toast Casserole

I could literally eat this praline topping by the spoonful. It's sweet and rich, and the pecans add a perfect balance of flavors and textures. Using this as a topping for French toast is just evil. It's already good enough on its own, but adding a little sweet crunch on top just blows your mind. ...more

Eggnog Challah French Toast Bread Pudding.

 I love eggnog. Some people say it's very rich, and that you can only have a tiny glass, but I don't have that problem.

Cinnamon French Toast: Morning's Are Good

French toast is so simple to make, and I find its always a crowd pleaser.  Having the right kind of bread from which to make french toast is important.  One cannot use plain toast bread--it will just turn out too mushy. I recommend a hearty, heavy, crusty whole grain or a rotund white round loaf.  Heading to your local bakery is well worth it....more

A 3 lb bag of apples for $3.00, sure! But now what am I going to do with all of these?

On our monthly shopping trip Mr Collier and I picked up a 3lb bag of apples at Aldi for around $3.00. The fruit bowl was filled with a box of clementines we bought for $4.00 so with the addition of the apples we have been literally packed to the brim with fruit. What in the world am I going to do with all of these apples? Sure apples and peanut butter as well as by themselves is delicious but how much of this could we possible eat? ...more
