  • This is a delicious, custard-y, crunchy French toast. I love the addition of almonds here,which add a great nutty flavor and some textural contrast. And while of course it's great to use a "nicer" loaf of bread if you've got some on hand, the French toast worked very well with a regular whole wheat sandwich loaf. One thing to note about this recipe is that there's no sugar in the custard, which allows you to enjoy a sugar-y topping without going into sweetness overload. If you prefer your French toast with just butter, you might want to add some sugar to the custard. Here's my blog post on the recipe: http://cupcakemuffin.blogspot.com/2011/10/almond-crusted-french-toast-with.html

  • So tasty - I added cumin seeds and feta cheese. Leftovers keep well.

  • Fantastic cookies - moist, lots of spices, and great bursts of tart flavor from the dried cherries. I also added some chopped dried apricots in place of the walnuts as I was serving to a crowd where I wasn't sure of nut allergies, and those were great. I used quick oats instead of rolled oats and it worked beautifully. Yum!

  • These are amazing. The optional rum is definitely a "must add" in my opinion (at least if you aren't serving the to kids). Super moist and delicious.

  • These are nice, soft cookies with a subtle orange flavor. The suggested yield does result in fairly small cookies, so you won't get as many if you make these larger.
