I ♥ MY BF (aka Breakfast)

Breakfast is like ignition to your car. The strike of a match. The momentous take-off of a high jump into the air. It's the most happiest morning alarm. And the only answer to the roaring growl of my stomach.

I like breakfast. Breakfast means so much to me. I can't function properly without food in my belly. It is impossible for me to understand breakfast-skippers. Especially when breakfast can be so easy and delicious. Breakfast sandwiches for example. Or Buttermilk Pancakes. Or how about French toast? French toast is even more awesome because it gets rid of your impossible stale bread. The French are geniuses!

My friends, let us have breakfast! According to wikipedia, "Nutritional experts have referred to breakfast as the most important meal of the day, citing studies that find that people who skip breakfast are disproportionately likely to have problems with concentration, metabolism, and weight." Take a few moments in the morning to treat your body and your mind. Maybe share this time with your loved ones and start off on a sweet note.

Classic French Toast

makes 4 servings


8 pieces of sliced french baguette or any other bread
2 eggs
1 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tbsp of sugar
dash of salt

butter or canola oil for cooking
powdered sugar, optional


1. In a shallow baking dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and salt.
2. Place pieces of bread onto the dish. Soak at least 5 minutes and flip over. (The longer the soak, the more flavourful. But this is usually good for really stale bread. The fresher the bread, the more soggy it might be. So maybe not too long!)
3. Heat butter or oil on a pan on medium heat. Place soaked bread and cook about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
4. Set cooked toasts on plates and dust with powered sugar, if desired. Serve with syrup and enjoy breakfast!
