Delicious French Toast!

I have been MIA but I am here for now.  I wanted to share this delicious recipe I tried this morning.  I have tried other french toast recipes but am discusted by its soggy texture.  This recipe was liked by all in my family including my 2 two year olds.  It has taken me awhile to like french toast and now as I make it I think of my wonderful dad.  Don't you hate how you treated your parents when you were a teenager! My dad made me french toast one morning for my birthday before I went to school and me being an idiot I got mad at my dad for making me something that was not my favorite.  He loves me so much and always does so much for me and I never appreciated him enough!  I am sorry dad for being an annoying, rude teenager at times! I love you. 

Okay here is the recipe!


1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1 pinch salt

3 eggs

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon white sugar

12 thick slices bread- I used leftover French Bread from last night


1.Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.

2.Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.

3.Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.

Showcase Sunday

Recently I signed up to be a vendor at The Pink Cottage in El Paso.  It is an absolutely charming boutique/gallery with very talented crafters and artists! To prepare for this opportunity I had to finish 40 pieces for my spot.   I also wanted to be sure to think about the customers that might shop at The Pink Cottage.  I decided to make UTEP Miner apparel and patriotic/ military apparel due to the fact Ft. Bliss and UTEP are a major part of El Paso.  I made some bandanna pillowcase dresses in blue with orange ties and I made these Army brat clothes. 

I made this a tie on halter with the ruffled capri pants.  This set is priced at 36.00
I had a hard time embroidering "Army brat" on a 6 month size so one of my facebook fans suggested this.
I am working on a boy army set but as you most likely know boy clothes are so much harder to be creative with.  I want to ask you to please "like" me on facebook.  Just search fancypantsbyjamee and click "like".  I am trying to reach 500 fans.

 Have a wonderful 4th of July and something to think about as you look at firecrackers tonight. The firecrackers are to remind us of "the bombs bursting in air"- remember all those who fought for this country and preserve what they fought for
