Pound Cake French Toast!
The combination came to me one day when I had been shopping at Costco. I enjoy eating their pound cake, but it comes in a package of 3. It’s not that my family can’t polish off all three loaves within a few day, I just don’t think that is the healthiest choice I could make for us. But alas, I remembered I was having my family for brunch over the weekend, I could just serve the buttery pound cake with the rest of the brunch items…Or… I could do a two for one and make… wait for it…
Pound Cake French Toast
I knew it would be yummy! I knew my family members would not be able to figure out why the french toast was so delicious this time. Do I dare let my secret out? Or do I leave the whole table wondering?
Of course, I couldn’t wait to blurt out that is was pound cake that make the french toast so very delicious. There is something about the buttery sweet goodness that pound cake has, when it is dipped in an egg batter it becomes the perfect combination of tender in the inside, crispy on the outside yummy goodness.

A few weeks ago, I was in central California at a blogging convention in San Jose. Handsome and I decided to take a few days after the convention ended and travel up to Napa, then down through Paseo Robles on the way back home. Sunday morning we set out on our wine adventure from San Jose up to the breathtakingly beautiful California wine country.
As we left our hotel, I remembered a fellow blogger telling me about a psycho themed donut shop in San Jose by the name of, what else, Psycho Donuts. I knew we could not pass up a donut for the road!
If you have ever ordered a delicious cannoli in an italian restaurant or bakery you know how utterly deliciously finger licking good they are! If you have ever tried to make them at home, you know how difficult they are. You need to make the dough for the shells and roll the dough out very thin, then wrap the dough around the cannoli forms and then deep fry them in the hot oil. Then you make the cannoli filling and fill the cannoli shells with the filling in hopes you don’t break too many shells in the process. Then you finally get to eat one.
Because they are not the easiest dessert to make, I have come up with my version of the cannoli.
I have heard people rave about Tito’s Tacos in Culver City for years, and for years I have been meaning to give their tacos a try. Well, the day finally arrived!

Thank goodness for GPS to show us the way to the famous Tito’s Tacos! Continue reading →
