I have found that I am craving sugar! Sweets…not my usual fare to crave…So to give reason to the maddness I decided to document my craving for french toast on FOF over on Ann Kroeker’s Blog…lame, yet genious in the mind of an emotional menopausal woman…  =}



This could also fulfill the Make – Do – Monday Blog too!  If I had made it on Monday….   =}


So in the effort to create easy french toast…Not only was I ravenous, I was lazy! So this is what I did…with the help of my son Chef James…

A loaf and a half of Pepperidge Farms Raisin Bread…A treat my Grandfather brought me every time I saw him…

I miss Grandpa!

I miss Grandpa!

The only 2 eggs in the house…a half quart of heavy cream…a half cup of brown sugar…a 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon and a pinch of salt…whisk briskly and set aside.

Butter baking pan…dish…whatever you put your hands on that can go in the oven…remember I just wanted french toast I was not going for the perfect presentation. I did however use an exceptable baking dish. (this time!)

Layer pieces of raisin bread cover with 1/2 of custard mixture…another layer of bread and cover with the remainder of custard.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes…checking after 30; depending on your oven. FYI ~ Don’t walk the dog and take pictures of your daffodils…you will burn the edges! LOL!




Cool and enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk…or both! A touch of maple syrup might be nice too! This was delicious for any Sunday breakfast…enjoy!

Happy Good Friday everyone…Enjoy your Resurrection Sunday!

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
