Salt and Pepper French Toast


You’re probably thinking the same thing I was when the notion of savory french toast was thrust in my general direction: No.

But I found this recipe on food52, a cooking blog I really do love and highly recommend everyone check out. They’ve rarely steered me wrong in the past (well, that whole “In Defense of Tofu” article has caused me much soy related grief) so I figured, why not?

And that’s really what we should ask ourselves in most cooking endeavors: why not? I mean, how much sense does it really make in the first place that we cover slices of bread with eggs, cook them and then serve them with maple syrup? I’m sure the person who had that served to them threw a fit.

I think this recipe is the perfect balance of that buttery, eggy, err, breadcombination we crave sometimes, but without the cloying sweetness of syrup or honey that isn’t welcome every morning.

Personally I think this dish less resembles french toast and is more akin to a homestyle attempt at those scallion pancakes some Chinese takeout places seem to have (but never the ones I go to, oddly enough).

Give the recipe a try and tell me what you think

Everything about Nine was great


Everything he said was pure gold



And not just the funny and sass…


Literally everything


Even when he don’t say anything, tho




I love how he was always smiling


Even tought he was the most damaged Doctor


The way he looked at Rose



image hells yeah



I want him back

"My husband was reading to my daughter—all these traditional fantasy stories, and fairy tales, like A Wrinkle in Time, and Lord of the Rings, and something called The Dark Is Rising—and you know, they’re all the same, in the way that the hero is depicted, the trials that the hero goes through—and I’m listening to these stories, night after night, and they’re giving me some of the ideas for the fairy tale. And some of the ideas, I already knew, was aware of, from reading all the stuff that my daughter would eventually be reading, or reading to her myself, so that definitely shaped the story. But I think maybe the idea that the girl is the focus of the story, that she is not just being rescued, that at one point, she rescued the boy, I think that part comes from having a daughter."
