She has developed some cooking skills but still considers herself as someone who needs a lot of assistance and she is not confident in her abilities in the kitchen. She has however learned how to make some of her favorite items quite well. Today's french toast demonstrated that.
These were delicious with a drizzle of pure maple syrup and a small swirl of whipped cream. It was perfectly complemented with mixture of pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries, and raspberries.
One of the things I love about french toast is the fact that it lends itself so easily to many delightful flavors and can easily move between the breakfast/brunch dish to a dessert.
If you haven't experimented with flavors beyond the traditional egg/milk/sugar mixture then you may want to try some of our favorite combinations. Here are a few ideas to get you started but it is by no means a complete list. Don't be afraid to experiment and try something new.
Replace some or all of the milk with ...
your favorite fruit juice
pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
your favorite jelly or jam
brown sugar and cinnamon
espresso powder or instant coffee
peppermint or other extracts/flavorings
your favorite liqueur
