French Toast

During weekends, hubby always prepares breakfast fo us. Its either, pan cakes, oatmeal or french toast. He made us french toast yesterday morning. Preparing french toast is easy. All you need is bread, egg, cinnamon and butter, of course syrup when its done as toppings.Here's a recipe from
This French toast recipe cuts back on fat by using only 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites. Ingredients: 1 egg 2 egg whites 1/4 cup milk 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon dash nutmeg 8 slices French bread, sliced on diagonal Preparation: In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and egg white until foamy. Whisk in milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Have warming drawer heated or heat oven to 200°. Heat butter in heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Dip 4 slices of bread in the egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly. Let excess drip back into bowl. Place coated bread slices in hot skillet. Cook, turning, until both sides are nicely browned, about 2 minutes each side. Transfer to a warm plate and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining bread and egg mixture. To serve, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired. Serve with maple syrup


When I first came to the States, I tried to discover what my father in law's favorite foods are. He love food that are sweets and snacks like that. I prepared him a spaghetti one time but it was Filipino style, you know the one with hotdog and a lil' bit of sugar in it. I was surprised that he liked it and since then whenever I prepare spaghetti, I do it Filipino style. He told me that the hotdog actually compliments the touch of sweetness on the sauce. He also love eating my lasagna..
My husband like the way I prepare it too. Before leaving home yesterday morning, he told me that if I decided to cook something, he would love to have some spaghetti, so that's what me and my kids prepared. My husband can eat a lot of spaghetti hehehe..When we moved out from his house, I always call him to come over to our house every time I cook spaghetti or lasagna. Now that we are here, he told me that he is missing my spaghetti hehehe... I am so thankful that my Filipina close friend visits him once in a while and brings him some spaghetti too.. Thanks Manay Raquel!
