Honey Vanilla French Toast


Tools: Nonstick pan, bowl, whisk or fork, nonstick cooking spray

Preparation time: 5 minutes


1/4 cup local honey (Not the kind in the bear shaped squeeze bottle)

1 egg (or two if you prefer your French toast to have a thicker coating)

splash of milk of choice

1 teaspoon vanilla or 2 turns vanilla bean grinder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 slices bread (can use gluten free, dip your bread in mixture more briefly, as bread tends to crumble)


Combine egg, honey, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, whisking until mixture is uniform. Dip bread in mixture, allowing to soak for a minute. Coat nonstick skillet with cooking spray, cook on medium heat. Watch bread carefully as they will brown quickly. Flip once, then enjoy!

Today is cold. Summer is confused.

I ventured out before having coffee today to check out a new grocery store. This is the closest I will ever achieve to a heroic act. I was so excited to see the dairy free options the new store carried…of which there were none.

It was not a pleasant day to venture out in the wind and the cold. When I returned home I jumped into pajamas. Flannel ones! The coffee was brewed and marvelous comforting French toast was made. It comes together so quickly you can have it on any day of the week. I don’t even use syrup with this, all it needs is a pat of Earth Balance melting over the hot slices. Enjoying my imagery?

A word on nonstick pans. You need a good one. I can’t tell you how many I’ve gone through finding cheap coatings that scratch so quickly no matter how careful you are and how many silicone utensils you use. Until I found the Pioneer woman’s. It’s holding up beautifully, and it’s blue which makes me happy. Here is a link to your very own blue nonstick champions.

The rest of today will be spent recipe developing. Doesn’t that sound more professional than snuggling with my baby in pajamas? Wherever you are, enjoy this recipe and I sincerely hope this cold weather decides to move on.
