|The colder it gets, the more I bake. I know it may sound impossible, but if I could bake everyday, I would and I do most days. Everyone migrates to the kitchen, the southern light comes pouring in, it’s warm, cheerful and inviting. I baked a couple loaves of my English Muffin Bread this week and wanted to try making French Toast with it. French Toast tastes great using stale bread. But fresh bread is still very nice. English Muffin Bread is a hearty, thick dense bread full of nooks and crannies and has a great flavor. I used a rich delcious eggnog from our Health Food Store. This week, we have been having so much fun wrapping gifts, singing Christmas Carols and drinking egg nog, I had to try dipping English Muffin Bread in the Eggnog Mixture. I think you will love it too! Perfect for Christmas Morning! Nettie
Whisk together in a shallow bowl:
1/3 cup milk or half and half
1/3 cup eggnog
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
One at a time, soak both sides of bread, then place in a hot well-buttered skillet.Cook on each side 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot sprinkled with Confectioners sugar or maple syrup, or jam.

|This is a super easy cookie to make for the holidays when you are rushed, stressed and have run out of time, even when you do have time and your son asks if you can make cookies for his school Christmas Party. I probably should make a double batch, so that they all actually get to the party, I see you sneaking in the container!

|This was the cake that I was supposed to have for my birthday. If you know me, you know that I am totally addicted to carrot cake, it is my favorite cake, the more carrots and nuts the better. This has been my favorite since I was a young girl. Going through all of the recipes on the Internet, I made my favorite recipe from my Mom and Baby Wayne. This was the cake that we would make for parties and birthdays. When it was baking, all the memories of those parties started flooding back, my Mom and I with all the guys from the Floral Market. Since I told my daughter that I was going to make this cake and then made my Gingerbread Cake. She hadn’t forgotten, and asked if I could make it when I got a chance. Since Amy’s Annual Wreath Making Party was coming up, I thought this would be perfect for the party. Everyone loves Carrot cake.|

|We play a game every day. We meaning hubs and I do. The game goes like this, “What do you want for dinner”, one of us says, “I don’t know what do you want”. Hubs says, “I’ll make pork chops”. I say, “It’s too cold for grilling, it’s 10 degrees out.” Hubs makes chops one way and one way only, on the Grill. He says, “It’s okay, it doesn’t bother me if it’s cold outside.” ( Hubs has been known to grill in sub zero weather). So I decided to make Crock Pot Pork Chops and not have any freezing bodies lying around.|
