This is adapted from Crescent Dragonwagon's Cornbread Gospels. Dragonwagon cites Nelly Custis, Martha Washington's youngest granddaughter, gave an account of the first president's morning routine, which included getting up before sunrise, reading and writing until 7 a.m. in the summer, 7:30 a.m. in the winter, and then breakfasting on three of these cakes, "swimming in butter and honey."
I spent some time in Guatemala many years ago and we had a lovely vegetarian dinner at a local woman's house on New Year's Eve. Oh, it was so good! There were these tamales with raisins and we were served a tea that tasted of apples and chamomile. Here is my attempt to duplicate that recipe! I wish I could remember more about the tamales.......Outside, the local folk were shooting off sticks of dynamite (for lack of fireworks), but we didn't care, we were in foodie vegetarian heaven!
Adapted from the Churchill House(Bed and Breakfast)in Brandon, Vermont, They say this is their number one requested recipe! I have changed the recipe slightly. These are golden brown and crispy on the outside and tangy and creamy on the inside! The Bed and Breakfast got this recipe from Gourmet magazine, 2005.
Refreshing and healthy too! This works best on a summer sunny day! In the winter I just make this by heating the water to boiling, then steeping the tea bags for 10-20 minutes. Adapted from the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
A great treat from France! For a twist, you add the topping before the coffee. The dollops of freshly whipped sweetened cream will rise through the coffee for a floating cloud effect. Adapted from About.com. Cook time is time to brew coffee.

French toast is often thought of as sweet, but many people like a savory version, here in the United States and in other countries. Here is a version I believe you will enjoy! I actually found this on a Walmart card in the grocery section!
