Great French Toast

1/2 of a French baguette
2-3 eggs (use large eggs if you can)
1-2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 drops of vanilla
1 Tbsp butter

NOTE: This is great for two or three people, if you expect more guest, just double the listed ingredients.

Cut the baguette into about 1 inch slices (you can cut the slices on an angle if you desire for aesthetics). Hand whisk eggs in a bowl. Then add milk and whisk together to incorporate. Whisk for a minute or two until it's smooth. Add cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla. Whisk once again for a few seconds to combine the newly added ingredients. Using a Tbsp of butter, add to your pan/skillet and turn on medium heat. Once butter has melted, your ready to fry up your toast. Using a set of tongs or your fingers, dredge A slice of bread in your egg mixture. Ensure both sides get coated and allow any excess to fall back into the bowl. Place coated baguette slice(s) into your heated pan and repeat this until you pan is full... but not overly crowded like Wal-Mart on Black Friday. Allow to cook on one side for 2-3 minutes then turn to the uncooked side. The newly uncooked side doesn't normally take as long to cook so check on it just over a minute or so. (Adjust this as if you desire lighter or darker french toast). Best served warm with some syrup and optional light coating of powdered sugar.

Southern Fried Rice

We tried this great recipe the other night. Figured I would share on here since I've been busy with my photography blog. This turned out pretty deelish! Served it with oven fried chili-lime Chicken via Kraft Foods new breading & cheese mixture. Made for a pretty quick meal when two are working together.

3 Tbsp bacon drippings
1/2 C green onions & tops, chopped
3/4 C celery, diced
1 C mushrooms, sliced
3 C COOKED rice
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 lb crisp bacon, crumbled

In a large skillet, fry bacon and reserve drippings. Drain bacon and crumble. Place onions and celery in bacon drippings and sauté until tender. Once tender, turn heat to low. Add your cooked rice, and soy sauce. Cook for about 10 minutes on low heat. Stir in the beaten egg and cook until the egg is done. Add crumbled bacon and mix well. Serve with extra soy sauce if desired.
