This Little Light of Mine and Strawberries!

OH how I love Friday's! Especially the Friday's when I am off...even if it's for 1/2 day! It's a nice prelude to the weekend, especially when the weather is as gorgeous as it has been this week! I wish I could just get in my car and drive....I don't mean just drive around here..I mean D.R.I.V.E. like all over our beautiful country! I know for sure I would head to each coast...because I LOVE the beach, and the water...not so much the sand. OH and I love lighthouses...they simply amaze me.....



Aren't they all so beautiful? I am not sure what it is about them that intrigues me.


What intrigues you?

Since strawberries will be in abundance is a super simple and
sweet recipe!

Angel Food French Toast


Yield: serves 4-6
Total Time: 30 minutes or less


1 angel food cake, sliced into 12 pieces
3 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2-3 tablespoons butter
for topping:
whipped cream
maple syrup
fresh mint


In a measuring cup, whisk flour into a few tablespoons of milk until it's totally dissolved to create a bit of a slurry. Add back to the rest of the milk.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium to medium-low heat. Gently dip each piece of angel food cake into the egg mixture, fully submerging it and covering all the sides. Make sure to let most of the egg drip off. Place a bit of butter in the skillet/griddle, then place cake on it and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. The only additional step here is you want to fry each side, then turn it on it's "back" and get that thick third end of the cake. Repeat with remaining slices, adding a bit of butter each time.
Serve with syrup, berries, whipped cream and fresh mint!
