french toast


I’m pretty sure I could eat french toast everyday of the week. After all, who doesn’t love dessert for breakfast?
What’s great about it is that I always have the ingredients on hand. That’s reason enough right there.

You’ll need:
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
salt to taste
6-8 slices of bread

To make:
Combine first 6 ingredients well. Coat your skillet with Pam or butter if you’d prefer. Heat skillet over medium heat.
Dunk bread in egg mixture coating both sides. Place in skillet, cooking both sides until golden.

Serve hot with syrup and confectioner’s sugar for ultimate sugar overload.

…okay, clearly i have no life

Call me sad, but I’m posting my second post of the day. Not sure if you’ve noticed, but it’s Friday.  1041p. I digress.

So Ash and I happened to catch an episode of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives on Food Network tonight.  They did a bit about a quaint little store-front in Cabbagetown with a really great restaurant. Anyway, that reminded us that DDD had been to Atlanta before to feature one of our favorite breakfasts spots….The Silver Skillet.  I know a few of you have been there before. Some love it while others (sister) can’t handle the grease in-take.  I lean towards the love it side. I mean give me some french toast topped with a hint of cinnamon, a side of bacon and hashbrowns w/ cheese, and I’m a happy (yet fat) girl. 

If you haven’t been fortunate enough to check this local eatery out, you might want to after you see this. Oh, and that waitress that everyone says is so friendly, isn’t.  But we love her anyway!  PS. that’s not a turtleneck under that t-shirt.  It’s a dickie.

d’s buttermilk pancakes.

In a previous post I mentioned the ever elusive D.  The man may be a crazy, funny, quirky man, but he’s one heckuva granddad.  And as you’re well aware, he’s got quite the sense of humor.  Well, on top of this quirky humor, he’s also pretty crafty in the kitchen.  He has what goes down as my mother’s favorite pancake recipe ever.  Just ask her…oh and when you do, please mention tennis in the same sentence.  Trust me on this.  Oh boy, she used to whip up this recipe and keep the extras in the freezer for a rainy day, or rather, a tennis tournament day….sorry, I got distracted…

Yes, pancakes.  These are goooooood.  Plain, simple, buttermilk pancakes.

Eat them.  Love them.  Thank D.


1 Cup flour, 1 Cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp melted butter, salt (but don’t go crazy unless you like an overload of sodium in the morning…) pam.

mix all ingredients well. Spray the pam on the frying pan and heat on medium. spoon in mixture forming pancakes.  (this always proves difficult for me, but i have faith in you guys…) turn over when bubbles appear through the top.  now cook on other side for just a minute or two.

see. easy.

And as my mom would say…”Great breakfast for tennis matches..” 

Yes, Mom…always. :)
