I've always collected recipes. Before the Internet, I subscribed to many cooking magazines. I'd cut out my favorite recipes and put them in a sheet protector in binders labeled 'dinner,' 'breakfast,' etc. When I started an account on Pinterest, I decided to upload the recipes. However that didn't turn out well. In the end I searched for the recipes online,then pinned them to the proper board. There's a lot less clutter in my house!
I've made this recipe for years (the original recipe was featured in Cooking Light Magazine 2003). It's fantastic on a cold, winter morning. I plan on making french toast with left the over bread tomorrow to start our busy Saturday morning!
