As a child, I thought that French Toast was one of the grossest things on the planet...
I always hated eggs, even as a baby I'd poke my tongue through my tightly clamped lips, taste it and quickly hide my tongue back away and refused to eat it. As I got older, I would whine every time my family ate eggs because I hated the smell (and the rest of my family love eggs so that happened a lot) and refused to use any dishes that still "smelt like egg" - even after they'd been washed twice in the dishwasher.
Everything to do with eggs grossed me out - the smell, the taste, the texture - so naturally, the idea of egg soaked bread served up for breakfast repulsed me....
But then I married an American.
On one of Jesse's first trips here, I made him French Toast (when you're good in the kitchen, that's how you impress your love interests - and clearly, the strategy worked). At the time I was still 110% anti-eggs but I sucked up my hatred and made him a delicious breakfast.
But then I was intrigued..... It didn't smell so bad, it didn't look so bad - surely it couldn't taste so bad?
It took me a while to pluck up the courage to try French Toast, but eventually I did. At first, it was too eggy - but then I kept fiddling with my recipe until I perfected it and I actually found myself liking french toast.
But how did I do that? Well, being the peanut butter queen I stuffed the french toast with peanut butter, of courseeeeeeeee! The outsides are crispy with a soft, gooey peanut butter centre - and making this recipe on cinnamon raisin bread only makes it even better.
So let me give you the recipe >>

All women want to feel beautiful - it's a given. We'll stand at the mirror and pick ourselves to pieces, we'll desperately wish that certain someone would say how gorgeous the outfit we spent the last week thinking about looks, we'll work on this bit or that bit we hate so that we can finally feel "beautiful"...
But The Bible speaks of beauty in a different way...
