Best ever French toast recipe and "oh so easy!" I personally love the macadamia nuts with coconut syrup, like in Hawaii, but any nut would be delish as well. A nice fruit on the side with or without meat would impress family or friends. Will be making this soon, wonderfully easy, but impressive breakfast!��

My screen name is FCR Gal because my husband and I have Flat Coated Retrievers in addition to Gordon Setters and Pulik. My photo and my icon are of one our dogs as a puppy, Kipling. About my ratings, I don't give anything lower than three stars. The recipes that I give four stars to are ones that I will definitely make again and will share with family and friends. I reserve five star ratings for recipes that are so fantastic that they are received with rave reviews from family and friends. These are recipes that become instant favorites and are made over and over. I appreciate constructive criticism about my recipes and how I can make them better. I have lived in the South all of my life and have been cooking for as long as I can remember. I started cooking with my mom as a very young girl. I am fortunate to have been surrounded by wonderful Southern cooks all of my life and nothing says comfort food like fried chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables that have been cooked down to mush! :-)) That is just the Southern way! To me, Southern cooking is very intuitive in that the best cooks don't ever work from a recipe. I try to do that also and almost never make something the same way twice!
