  1. I added 1 tsp vanilla extract to the milk/egg mixture before soaking the bread. I also used a loaf and a half of day old french bread I had on hand. Lastly, I added a layer of well ripened bananas sliced, on the brown sugar spread, and then the soaked bread.
  2. Hi Audrey M....made your wonderful French toast recipe for my son and his girlfriend, well what a hit it was...DELICIOUS!...made it with my homemade syrup recipe, no leftovers!...I usually fry my French toast in a frypan, this is a different way of making's great, cause you can make lots at one time....made it excactly as stated, only I let it sit for approx 10 minutes instead of 5, as it didn't seem to soak up all the egg in 5 minutes....thanx AudreyM for a wonderful French toast recipe...I will be making this again soon...keep up the good work:-)


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
