Welcome to this month’s installment of The Secret Recipe Club. This time around I was assigned to Ros’s bog The More Than Occasional Baker! I somehow managed not to cook one of Ros’s desserts. I could happily get lost in all of her amazing flavor combinations with things such as Crystallized Ginger and Beer Cake, Marmalade Chocolate Croissant Pudding, and Pear Walnut Cake. Be sure to stop over and check out her blog!
Sometimes happy coincidences happen when you don’t fully read recipe instructions. Usually unhappy things, but sometimes good. For example, even though I read the title of this recipe on The More Than Occasional Baker and saw the word “baked” I most definitely whipped out the skillet and went to town before I could correct myself. Apparently I was so excited to try a savory stuffed french toast, drizzled in maple syrup, that I didn’t want to wait for it to bake! I am one of those people that loves sopping up the remnant syrup on my breakfast plate not with my pancake, but with my sausage or whatever other breakfast meat I’ve got going on, so the idea of syrup on this savory stuffed french toast pulled me right in and it did not disappoint. I do like the idea of baking it with some extra cheese on top though, cause when is that ever a bad thing?
And yes I drank wine with my french toast. Don’t hate, I developed a weakness for Gewurztraminer. So very unlike me loving a white, but I do enjoy my whites sweet, while my reds are dry.

Happy Christmas Eve! Here’s a great breakfast recipe to prepare for breakfast tomorrow morning – eggnog french toast. Substituting eggnog for milk makes this fresh toast festive and perfect for Christmas morning (or any winter morning).

Happy Thanksgiving! Or as I like to call it, Fat Kid Day! It also just so happens to be National French Toast Day so before you dig into that turkey, how about some breakfast? I was a bit sad to discover that I only have 5 recipes total for french toast. Disgraceful after 3 years of blogging. I’ll have to work on that, but in the meantime check out these yummy options to start the day:
This whole writing business is slowly coming to an end. My advisor told me that the first draft of my my intro was “exceptionally well written” and did not have many suggestions or comments (he cannot actually edit anything since it’s my dissertation). All I have to do now is clean up one more research objective chapter and then compile my discussion chapter. Oh but then I have to do all the annoying formatting! I purposely scheduled my defense for the end of September in order to give me the recommended 5 weeks for format reviews, as the finished product is due November 1st.
I know you are probably thinking, “how bad can it be?” but it really does involve a lot of tedious work that takes a lot of time. So much so that I know several students who pay to have it done for them, saying that the $45/hour (averaging around $400) they paid was worth every dollar. I will admit that if I had an extra $400 lying around, I would do it in a heartbeat. Imagine how much more time I could dedicate to applying for jobs during the month of October instead of fiddling with all that formatting? Consider this rant my not-so-subtle graduation present hint.
But I digress… let’s make breakfast. French toast waffles are exactly what they sound like: French toast cooked with a waffle iron. just the kind of simplicity I need these days. And you can use any kind of bread you prefer, in fact next time I am going to use cinnamon-swirl bread. I do what I want!
P.S. It’s have to believe it has been 12 years since the attacks on September 11th, 2001. I can only imagine the pain that lingers for those who lost loved ones on that day.
It’s time for peanut butter stuffed french toast, dipped in a cocoa egg mixture. Which must not to be confused with my peanut butter french toast with chocolate syrup, which was made with peanut butter bread and then had a chocolate-maple syrup drizzled over it. Today’s french toast is much more peanut buttery. The filling is similar to the inside of a buckeye candy (which is peanut butter, powdered sugar, and butter), and since it has a chocolate coating on the outside as well I was tempted to name it “Buckeye French Toast”.
Today’s game is versus UAB at home in The Horseshoe. But it is only going to be aired on The Big Ten Network, so I will be unable to view it. However, I will be watching the Michigan versus Notre Dame game. It feels so wrong to cheer for that state up north, but I’ve gotta support my conference (didn’t I have this struggle already once this year when they played Alabama?).
