White Chocolate (w/Raspberry) Sherbet. Absolutely Cray Cray.

Hola World!

Hopefully y’all enjoyin this Olympic Coverage wherever y’all maybe on the planet. Y’all got a favorite event so far?

Me? You aint gonna believe it, but its Rowing. Yep. Rowing.

Fun Fact: I was once a rower. Not an Elite one, I was too short for that. Those guys are HUGE!!!

BUT I rowed in an 8 man boat about 5 years ago. Watching the races brought up good ole-nostalgia.

The Blisters on the hands, The Spandex Uni’s.(Unless you are in good shape, those things will exploit your flaws). Feeling like you may have a heart attack after the race is over.

Oh the memories.

Not sure if y’all been watching, well you should. But watching it, they make it look so effortless. But it aint.

Speaking of effortless, (dig the segway coming up here?) Sherbert is up there.

Now what in the world is it? It’s Ice Cream, but a bit lighter version of it.

Usually the traditional Ice Cream got Heavy Cream and Egg Yolks. This one is mainly Milk Based along some Egg Whites or Gelatin, sometin to thicken it up.

This recipe’s got Egg Whites and they are whipped, but not cooked. But it aint something to “Clutch Tha Pearls” over. If you eat cookie dough, or Mayonnaise, you eating raw egg.

So I wanted to do somethin unique with sherbert since I did Peach Ice Cream.

I fortunately had some left over white chocolate that I’d been tryin to figure what to do with and thus this was born:

I know it don’t as glamorous or got that “OOOHHH” factor as say if I’d used Dark Chocolate. But the taste is all there folks.

I wanted to give this a boost, and Raspberry goes well w/ White Chocolate. Plus I needed to clear out some space in the fruit drawer in the fridge.

I swear most of theses recipes come from me tryin to clear out room in the fridge.

But to get this

You will need this recipe:

White Chocolate & Raspberry Sherbert

  • 4 Cups of Whole Milk
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 6 oz White Chocolate
  • 1 Cup of Raspberry Puree (strained)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 a lemon, juiced

Sidenotes:

  • Pour the Sugar into the Milk and let it come to a scald (where the bubbles are on the sides)
  • Dump in the White Chocolate and stir to let the chocolate melt.
  • After it’s combined together, take the milk off the heat, add the vanilla and let it cool down.
  • Put some Raspberry with some lemon juice in a blender and puree it. Then strain to catch the seeds and proceed to put into Hot White Chocolate Milk concoction.
  • Whilst its cooling, put the egg whites and pinch of salt in a bowl, and whip that sucker til its soft peaks. See how I used “Whilst”.
  • After it’s cooled, fold the whipped egg whites into the concoction and pour it in an Ice Cream Machine thingy.
  • If you dont have one, like moi?? Put it in a blender  and in the freezer for about 90 minutes then pulse for a few seconds, then place it back in and repeat 1 hour later. Do that about 3-4 times then let it set in the freezer overnight.

And thats about it. And you get this:

One thing about Ice Cream, it’s better over time. Eating freshly churned Ice Cream aint the same as seasoned w/LUV Ice Cream.

Hopefully y’all enjoyed todays little fun fact and Sherbert post.

Like what y’all see???

Like, Comment and/or Subscribe to this sucker. I do update this on a weekly basis. Who knows, maybe this’ll amuse you for the week.

I dont know.

But  I do know that I wanna make Pull Pork again…. Adios.

Peach Ice Cream and a Flat Tire on the Freeway. What??

Confusing Title? I can explain that.

Highlight of this past Monday: I got a Flat Tire driving on the freeway. Now for those who are from small towns or don’t have freeways in major cities.

One would say it’s scary as hell esp when you live in Texas. It’s a danger zone. But fortunately I was able to get off the freeway accident free and w/some assistant from my one of my boys. Got a spare put on.

Right before a rainstorm hit. To say that I had a “Case of the Mondays”, I’d probably throw somethin at you and laugh at you at the same damn time.

Word of advice for those who have crappy days: Pour ya’self a tall glass of whatever your fav drink is. (Mine’s Peach Lemonade.) Try and Crack a Smile. Thank God you survived the day and hope that tomorrow will be a lil less crappy.

Deep huh?

But enough about THAT day.

Apparently it’s Ice Cream Month. And it just so happen that this summer, I wanted to try my hand at making Ice Cream from scratch.

Sure I’ve made Ice Cream before. (There’s alotta links today). But not the old skool way. With Eggs and Heavy Cream and Whole Milk.

But I wanted to take a crack at it. And made Peach Ice Cream.

See

 

I even put a peach right next to it. To reiterate the point.

I think everybody should attempt a form of Ice Cream. The regular kind. Sherbert. Or if you one of those vegetarian/vegan type. Sorbet.

Next week, I’ll explain the difference between the three styles of Ice Cream.

But back to this bad boy here

 

Fun Fact: If you don’t have an “Ice Cream Machine”. It’s still easy to make Ice Cream.

I learned that from one of my fav dessert peoples: David Lebovitz.

If you got a whisk, Electric Mixers or in my case a Blender. You can make Ice Cream.

Just like dodging a wrench in dodgeball.

So my recipe for Peach Ice Cream consist of this

  • 2 Cups (or a Pint) of Heavy Cream
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1/4 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extra (you got one of those vanilla beans, use it)
  • 4 Peaches Puree-d

Side Notes (Pay attention this theses y’all!!!)

  • Warm up the milk in a pot, once you see bubbles on the side, take it off the heat.
  • While the milk is warming up, whisk both brown and white sugar with the egg yolks.
  • Take the warm milk and pour some (NOT ALL) of the milk on the eggs WHILE whisking. It’s called tempering. If you dont whisk, the yolks will be scrambled eggs.
  • After whisking some of the milk with the yolks, pour it all back in the pot and whisk it together so it finishes cooking.
  • Best way to know it’s done= The coated spoon test. Take a metal spoon, dip it in the custard, if it coats the back of the spoon. You’ve done work. And stick it in the fridge to cool down.

For the turning it to Ice Cream part

  • Pour it in a container and place it in the freezer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Take it out and with a whisk, mixer, or a blender, crank it and break up the frozen bits with the liquid.  Then place it back in the freezer for another hour.
  • After another hour do the same thing, then place it in the freezer another hour. You should do this no more than 4 times. Then let it sit overnight.

And there you have it.

 

I think the longer it sits, the better it taste. It gives it more time to gel and chill w/each other.

So give it a try. If you can spend 4 hours cooking up a Julia Childs’ Coq-Au-Vin, you can make Ice Cream dangit!!!

That’s all I got today. Like what you see: Comment, Like and/or Subscribe to this page. I swear I do keep this sucker updated.

Next week, I’ll bring more Ice Cream. Speakin of which I got a coupon for free Ice Cream I need to go buy.

Laterz.

my attempt at making Eclairs. Look good huh?

I really don’t know where to start with this one here: Eclairs.

They kinda look like those long johns at Shipleys or whatever Doughnut shop you can think of?

Is Krispy Kreme still around?

Anyways, how you make Eclairs comes from makin a  thing called “Choux Pastry”.

Choux Pastry is the basis for not only Eclairs, but also Cream Puffs or even “Crocquembouche” aka that giant tower of mini-doughnut looking balls.

Is it me (cuz I’m a guy) or has that word become weird to use over time?

Anyways. To make choux pastry is pretty easy. Even for a guy like me. And you’ll get somethin like this:

What you would need is this:

  • 1 C Flour
  • 1 C Water
  • 1/4 C Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • BAKING TIME 15 min @400, then 30 min @ 350 degrees.

Sidenote:

  • Put everything BUT the Flour in a sauce pan and let it come to a boil. You want it at a rolling boil aka where it’s Bubblin like crazy.
  • Then take it off the heat and dumb the flour. And stir like mad til it becomes a ball
  • Then once you let it somewhat cool down, add one egg at a time. You can use a mixer like I did. Prob save you an arm. Just saying.
  • Also it’ll look like somethin went wrong when you add the eggs in (one at a time again.), because it’ll start separating. But it’ll come together and look like smooth and creamy.

Also when you dumb the flour, be sure it’s all at once, but in small cups. I used a the 1 Cup and got splashed with hot butter water on my thumb.

Guess you can say that note is rule of thumb? HELLO!!!

I just wanted to do that. Don’t Judge.

From there, with a plastic bag or piping bag, squirt out the pastry in 3-4 inch pieces. And Bake for 15 minutes at 400 Degrees, then 350 for 30 minutes.

Et VOILA

Nice & Crunchy on the outside, Soft & Chewy on the inside.

From there, you can dip ’em in Chocolate, Peanut Butter. Whatever your heart’s desire. (Maybe a Nutella spread or something)

They do make a nice dessert, or breakfast food. They kind are like croissants, sorta.

And thats it.  In other news, my bracket for March Madness is still (barely) somewhat in tact. HOORAY!! Even though, I’m near the bottom of the barrel in point standings.

Hopefully my bracket wont be burned just yet. Although there were some upsets I wanted to see happen.

UNC-Ashville, y’all got hosed.

But that’s all I got for today. Enjoy Eclair making, guys & gals.

If y’all like what you see, comment, like and/or subscribe. I really do keep this sucker updated regularly.

BTW. I decided to read the Hunger Games.  I decided to follow the crazy trend. Crazy stuff. But a good read.

But here’s one more pic of Eclairs. Til then, DEUCES!!!

Chocolate Whoopie Pies: My Super Bowl “Snack”

The Super Bowl. Here’s Ole-Bill’s review of it: To be honest. Didnt care for it. Figured the Giants were gonna win this one. What was worse? The commercials. They were garbage this year. Other than a couple (M&M’s and the VW Dog getting into shape). They were fairly lame this year, agree?

As for the half-time show? Madonna for the most part did a good job. Was I offended that M.I.A. flipped the bird during their number? Nah, not really. She’s a rebel. That’s what rebels do. Besides if we had a dollar for everytime somebody flipped the bird, we’d probably could eliminate half the country’s deficit.

Just Sayin.

So what did I make for the Super Bowl? Judging by the title Whoopie Pies. And I made a bunch.  (See Below)

I will admit. Im a bit of a Whoopie Pie lover/addict. The idea is GENIUS! It looks like cookies, yet its cake batter. But the “Pie” aspect. I’m still researchin that one.

So y’all are probably are wondering, what up with the different colors? Or what up with that top one looking like a jumbo-sized chocolate Clam?

I made three different fillings: The Top Level (The one that looks like a chocolate Clam) is Peanut Butter Frosting. The Middle Level is Orange Butter Cream Frosting. And the green one at the Bottom is Peppermint.

Had to make it stand out.

Here’s how I did it:

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 C Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 C Butter
  • 1 C  Milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Bake for 10 minutes @ 325 Degrees.

As for I went with those three, because those to me, are the some of the best combos for chocolate.

If you know any combos, go ahead with those.

Nice thing about watch parties, you can make food that doesnt have to be overly complicated.

Sometimes a whoopie pie is all you need instead of a 3 layered cake.

That’s for next week. V-Day’s comin up y’all.

Will I do anything? Like every year, Nothing.

But will I come up with an EPIC dessert for Valentimes Day? YEUP.

And did I just misspell it?  You Darn Skippy I did. I still say it that way too.

In the meantime, subscribe to the site.

I’ll do my best to keep it interesting.

Deuces!!

Apple Bread Pudding/ Bored on a Saturday.

 

Boy, where have I been with this sucker?

Normally, I try to keep this sucker updated twice a week, but its been kinda tough cuz A. I’m slowly running out of ideas. And B. Sometimes, I procrastinate. Forgive me y’all.

Anywhos I discovered a new Food Market. Dont know if I should say the name cuz I dont want this to be a shameless plug.  But after fighting in the parking lot for a spot. I found something I’ve been wanting for the longest time: MEYER LEMONS.

When I walked by them, I knew I couldnt resist the urge to buy some. I just had to. What I’ll make with that? Y’all got any ideas, let me know and also stay tuned.

Anyways what did I do over the weekend? Jack Squat. Nada. Nothing. I had nothing really big going on. So I decided I’m gonna try and tackle something I hadnt done before: Bread Pudding.

Pourquoi? Had nothin else better to do.

So I came up with Apple Bread Pudding after watching that show that Michael Symon’s on.

I didnt write down how He did it. So I kinda “winged it” if you will. And came up with this:

How does it look?

Sometimes I’m amazed at myself (not trying to sound egotistical or nothing. Hey! Big Word!) How I randomly decide, “Eh, I’m bored. I’ll bake something now.”

And this is what I came up with. So how did I come up with this. Simple

Take:

  • 2 Granny Smith Apples, Chopped
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 C of Heavy Cream
  • 1 1/2 C of Milk
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 6 cups of Challa (HOLLA) or Brioche bread

Bake at 325 degreez for 45 minutes.

And you get this

Sound simple enough right?

Thats all I got for today. Like what ya see? Subscribe, I’ll do my best to keep this as interesting as possible.

Now,  Excuse me while I ponder what should I do with theses Meyer Lemons that I bought.  But I’ll leave y’all with another pic of Apple Bread Pudding.

Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal Bread. That sounds healthy right?

 

So… Hows the weather?? Here? Currently flooding. Again. I swear, we go months in a drought and now all of sudden we on “Flood Watch”. Crazy.

But that aint the point. I had a realization or the fancy term “Epiphany”. That sounds fancy huh? (You fancy huh?)

I realized that I wanna work in a pastry shop. For realz this time. I realized this after a while of tryin to find that elusive “Big-Kid” Job. (You know the one with the salary and the alleged “Benefits”)

I enjoy cooking or if ya wanna be technically “BAKING” more each day. Sounds corny, yeah. But it’s the truth.

Y’all got any ideas, pass ’em along. I have even considered goin abroad to Hungary. Cant speak the language, but after watching a wedding. I want a Hungarian Wedding.

But back to the title post: Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bread.

First of all I’d like to say thank you Gwen Stefani for helping us be able to remember how to spell the word “BANANA” correctly. That song, at least, contributed to spelling. If anything.

Second of all: I decided to keep up with my theme of January of “Healthy Baking”. That sounds hot right???

This was the first time I’d use Bananas(thank you Gwen.)since that whole Grooms Cake mishap. (For those that are like WHAA??? Here’s the Play-By Play)

And it just so happened I had a couple bananas lying around going brown and instead of just tryin to whoof ’em down. I thought I’d do some ingenius cooking and make banana bread.

But not just plain ole-banana bread. I wanted to switch it up and add some oatmeal and my first love: Peanut Butter.

And this is what came out of it

So how’d I do it?? Y’all ask?

Here it is folks

  • 2 C Flour
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 2 Bananas, just about browned ( I swear if this was a drinking game for that word, you’d be flat out DRUNK)
  • 1/4 C Butter, Room Temp. No excuses. Dangit.
  • 1 C Peanut Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C Oats (Stir’em in the batter and put some up top)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt

Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.

No Side Notes this time.. Fairly straight forward.

So hopefully y’all give this a try and tell me what y’all think. I really do read these things. Even the negative comments.

And  you know who you are. Dont think you aint hurt my FEELIINGS!!

I kid of course. Maybe.

But for real, if you like what ya see, subscribe. I’ll do my best to keep y’all entertained and fed. At least on your computer screen. So one more for the road: Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal Bread

 

If this was for real a drinking game of the word “Banana”. You’d be HAMMERED.

Whoopie Pies, Vegan Style. With Orange Buttercream. Yeup.

 

Happy Friday everybody!! Another week in the books. Well, sorta. Anywhos whats gone down since the last time?

Welp apparently there was a war on SOAP. (I’m aware how it’s spelled). And a few brits thought we were hating on Prince William’s sister in law. PIPA.

To get off topic for a minute, but for real. WHY IS SHE FAMOUS??? Did I miss a memo or something on why folks should care about Kate’s sister and make her as (or possibly more) famous as Kate? Somebody tell me please. She kinda up there with people who are just famous for no damn good reason.

Anyways, sorry about that.

I’ve decided since the last post to make this “Vegan Week” I guess since I figured I can bake without eggs or dairy and it actually tasted good. Now will I make the switch and convert?? NOPE. But it’s somethin to think about though.

I wanted to see if this could work for whoopie pies. I love, love whoopie pies. Just the name alone “WHOOPIE”. I mean C’MON SON. It’s ridonkulous.

I decided to use orange buttercream (yeah I couldnt find any sub for butter, so this technically aint ALL the way vegan. Don’t judge). Mainly cuz I think Vanilla and Orange gets overlooked.

We make such a fuss about chocolate and orange, but vanilla and orange is just as good folks. And messing around (that sounds kinda dirty) I came up with this:

 

Not bad eh? How aboot that. Shout out to the canadiens. I want to go to canada one day. Completely random. But just wanted to say that.

So y’all prob hoping there’s a recipe right? JACKPOT here’s the recipe I created.

Vegan Vanilla Whoopie Pies

  • 2 1/4 C  Flour
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar (Yes, There’s a difference)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 C Soy Milk (It looks gross, but it does wonders I’ve heard)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 C Canola Oil

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.

As for the Orange Buttercream

  • 1/2 C Butter or Margarine
  • 2 C Powder Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbspoons of Orange Juice (From the Orange, not the carton peoples)
  • Zest of 1 Orange.

Note: This recipe makes more than a dozen whoopie pies. So have more than 2 cookie sheets on hand. Or just use A LOT of Parchment Paper. And you’ll get this:

Now I had so much batter left over I ended up making a Giant Whoopie Pie. Now I know what you thinking “Pics Or It aint happen” BOOM:

It even took up almost the whole plate.

Yeeahh, I can get a bit outta hand sometimes with the baking. Oh well.

Thats all I got for today folks. Hopefully, you’ll wind up givin this a try. Whether you a Vegan or not.

Like what you see?? Subscribe to this sucker, I keeps it updated weekly. And comment. Good or Bad. I take criticism (not as well as I should but) fairly well.  For now enjoy one shot of the giant whoopie pie

Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes w/ Lemon Frosting. Yeah thats right I said “VEGAN”. Crazy.

Whats good y’all? How was y’all weekend?

Me? This was prob the busiest I’ve been in a while. Should I say all year?? Thats garbage. I apologize.

But for real, I got to watch the Olympic Trials for the Marathon. A friend from skool competed and finished in the top 40. Sure the top 3 make the Olympic team. But I got so much respect for those folks who put in the time and work to even make it to something like that.

Though I will say, it’s gotta suck coming in 4th place in that situation. I felt bad for that guy and girl who did.

Afterwards got to go to a swanky after-party, cuz after the race,its the AFTER-PARTY!!. (LA-DI-DA-DI. We like to PARTAY!!)

It was free food and open bar. WINNING.  Then the next morning I had to compete in the 5k of the Houston Marathon. It wasnt my fastest time, but it was the most fun I had running a 5k.

I even wore a shirt that said “I’M SO GETTING A BURGER AFTER THE RACE” Which I did do.

But what does that have to do with the title of this post? Hmmmm…….

Well prior to my race-filled weekend, I had to make cupcakes for a client that were Vegan. Now I aint really sold on the whole “Vegan” thing. I’m a meat-eater. It’s too good to pass on. But after researching thru a Vegan Dessert book, I came up with a Vanilla Cupcake that was vegan.

How you ask? Soy Milk and Canola Oil. And it worked. Huzzah!

I was really surprised how flavorful they came out. I for real thought they were gonna taste funny. Honestly. But even yours truly was dumb-founded on how good they came out.

Now am I gonna go gung-ho and swap dairy for the Vegan life style. Hell No. I love milk too much. BUT. In an effort to lose some LB’s (Thats pounds in hipster talk). I may do so to lose some weight.

After this weekend of seeing so many people in tights and short-shorts, I’ve been motivated to shed some pounds for the summer.

But after my “Experiment”. I’d definitely put this on my menu.

So for those looking for Vegan Cupcakes. Ole-Bill gotcha covered. Holla @ Me.

Thats it for nows. If you like what you see, subscribe to this bad boy, I keep it updated during the week.

Now if y’all dont mind, my legs still hurting. You try running that much and doing P90X in the same day. Dumb idea? Possibly.

Healthy (Dessert) Eating pt.1: Grapefruit Sorbet

Grapefruit Sorbet. Where do I begin? Well first of all, I’d apologized for the delayed post. It’s been a wacky few days. From surviving a city-wide flood (for real) to surviving the dentist office.

I swear, I think they get a kick outta using that small hook scraper.

And also my voice is shot/horse. I got to witness the Texans first playoff win.EVER. And I can barely talk without my voice cracking. Oh well.

But back to subject title at hand. I realized last post that I talked about tryin to lose weight. Baked Eggnog French Toast prob wasnt the best post to start the year with. But I got somethin 4 y’all!

Grapefruit Sorbet.

I know, I know. ANOTHER SORBET??!!

But this is actually a healthy dessert. If ya’ didnt know, Grapefruit (allegedly) helps with the fat breakdown. I can attest. Back after I graduated high skool (I like to spell it that way. Don’t Judge) I ballooned in weight due to going to a certain fast food chain 3 times a week with my friends. We were cheap back then and thought “EH. Why not”

That summer I drank grapefruit juice a lot. And it sorta worked.

Now will I have a weight loss commercial with me now and a obviously photoshopped pic of me stretched wide claiming that was me “BEFORE”. No.

But Grapefruit, after getting over the extremely bitter taste can be delish. Yeah I said it. Delish.

So how to make it?  Shockingly easy.

  • 3 Cups of Grapefruit Juice
  • 1 1/2 C of Sugar
  • 1 1/2 C of Water

Sidenote: Bring the Sugar and Water to a boil to make a simple syrup. Then add the Grapefruit Juice and let that come up to a boil.

And thats it. Now if y’all got an ice cream maker, use that. If not like moi. It’s simple but it does take some time. I’d suggest making it on a weekend when you not working.

Basically take your cooled down mixture and put in the fridge and every 45 minutes take it out and use a handmixer to break up the ice. And put back in the freezer.

Keep doing that until it has the texture of ice cream.  I had to look that up.(Shout out to David Lebovitz).

And you’ll get something like this

So if y’all wanna something to feel less guilty about. Gon’ head and give it a try. It’s got the grapefruit flavor with a little sweetness to it.

Now excuse me, I gotta go start training (again) for this race I’m fixin to run on Sunday at the crack of dawn.

Hopefully I wont get trampled. Fingers Crossed.

What to do with Eggnog? Make French Toast. Duh.

Welp y’all. I’ve done it. I’ve finally made some Resolutions for 2012. I had to actually sit down and think about this.

Some of mine are basically this

  1. 1. Lose a bunch of weight (show of hands who else thought of this idea?)
  2. Travel a lot
  3. Do more Photography work,primarily at Sporting Events.
  4. Make Multiple Grooms Cakes
  5. Attempt to BBQ this summer (I live in Texas, that’s all we know)

And of course, expand my audience on this site. I’d love to hear from y’all. Tell me what you like,what you don’t like, what I suck at. Or just say “Hola”.

What are some of y’all resolutions for the new year?

Back to the title of the post. This came from when I had made my own Eggnog. It’s been somethin I wanted to do all winter long. And I did it. It kinda tasted like a Milkshake. But it was good though.

I had a bunch of it left over and was like, What to do with it? I just so happened to go to Jimmy Johns with my friend and forgot about how you can buy day old bread for cheap. No this aint a plug,though I do love some JJ’s every now and then.

Anywho, I promised my auntie that I’d make some sorta of bread pudding, but I wounded up making French Toast.

Why? Cuz I had ran outta cereal. SNAP.

I ended up killing two birds with 1 meal: I used up some of my leftover eggnog  AND made some dope French Toast. I should also point out, this is a baking recipe. Nothin like Baked French Toast right? Win Win.

I know it does look chard up top, I like it that way. That and gas ovens can be tricky sometimes. lolz.

So if you were hoping for a recipe for this: here it is!

  • 5-6 Cups of Day Old Bread. Like Brioche or something that’ll absorb liquid good.
  • 4 eggs (whisked of course)
  • 1 1/2 C of Eggnog
  • A GOOD pinch of salt.
  • 1/4 Cup of Sugar, SPLIT
  • 1 tbs of butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon.

Sidenote:

  • The sugar is split cuz 1/2 of it will go into the eggnog and egg mixture and the other 1/2 will go on top with the cinnamon.
  • Bake in a 8X8 dish for 45 minutes @ 350 Degrees

And you get something like this

Hopefully y’all like it. If you do, go head and subscribe to this bad boy. I promise to do my best and keep this sucker updated for y’all.  And y’all have a good weekend too. Yours truly is going to his 1st NFL Playoff GAME!!!

Texans Vs Bengals! Who’s excited? This guy is. Texans have never hosted a playoff game, let alone BEEN to one either. Our 1st one. Get Excited!!!

That’s it. I gotta go wash my Texans shirt for tomorrow.

Anybody else spell that word w/ 2 “M”s?
