French Food 101: Petit Dejeuner

My husband and I were in France together twice. Once when he came to visit me during my junior year abroad, and again for our honeymoon. As a French Lit. major and later a French teacher, I tried for years to teach him to speak the language. I was not successful. He had a really […]

Oven French Toast

Old cookbooks are some of my favorites. Not only are they full of tried and true recipes, but they also hearken back to the days of do-it-yourself-ness, a sure fire money-saving method. I adapted this recipe for French Toast in Betty Crocker’s Do Ahead Cookbook: From the Freezer and the Refrigerator, © 1972. It is […]
