Life with little ones

I thought I would post a recipes from Mollie Katzen's Honest Pretzels.  My kids and I found this one the other day and are having a blast with it...  Lots of healthy, fun stuff to make and eat together!

Here's her Gingerbread French Toast recipe:

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
3 or 4 slices Italian or sourdough bread (or try it with the amazing Rudi's bread we've been stocking in the freezer!)  You could also use challah bread, which would be decadent; the folks at artisan bread in five minutes a day have a fantastic challah bread recipe (which I make for the store when I'm not so pregnant!)

Optional toppings:
* Real maple syrup (we get ours from Randy Grippin's Mountain Winds Farm in Berne - it is, without question, the best maple syrup I've ever had!)
*  Applesauce
*  Sliced peaches or strawberries
* Powdered sugar

Mix eggs, milk, and the spices together, whisking until the batter is all one color.  Dip each slice of bread into the batter, then then stack them on a plate.  Heat up a skillet on medium heat.  Place the wet bread onto the buttered skillet and cook till it is browned; flip the bread over and cook the other side.

Serve hot, either plan or with one of the toppings.


Drop by on Sunday, too - we have an impromptu gathering of coffee lovers who join us in the afternoon and we often make them some special treats.  And we have a cupcake maker, with which, as you know, all things are possible!
