Best recipe for lazy brunch makers… baked french toast! Stole the recipe from a Pinterest pinner and added semi-sweet chocolate chips because since when is adding chocolate to anything a bad thing.
Double layered challah bread and a brown sugar glaze at the bottom and top of the casserole is key.
Sometimes it’s the utter beauty of a snack or food that makes you remember that cooking, baking and brainstorming flavors is a goddammit art.
Le Macaron made me remember that oft-overlooked fact. If you’re one of these brainwashed, trend-seeking foodophiles, then you’ve succumbed to the macaroon - THE cookie of the moment (yes macaroons are freakn’ cookies, get over it).
Bitchiness aside, these macaroons were incredibly good. We ordered the Sicilian pistachio and the blue currant. The bonbons took me back to a chocolatier in Budapest with their elaborate details; Gastrodamus ordered one pumpkin and one s’mores.
