Perfect French Toast



  • 1 loaf challah bread (sliced)
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 pat butter
In a mixing bowl, blend eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and orange juice. 

In a large skillet or griddle, melt butter on medium heat. Gently dip both sides of each slice of bread and let excess egg mixture drip off. Place onto heated skillet and let cook until each side is toasted until crispy and brown. Transfer the French toast to a platter and serve.

This dish can be served with your favorite syrup, fruit salad or with eggs.
It's perfect for breakfast or brunch.


enjoy, Christa

Fresh Off The Needles

I've been lucky enough to be so busy with several custom orders. I made the above cowl by double-knitting this piece for Juliana. She mentioned she has an eggplant-colored coat and wanted this golden color to 'pop' against it. By double-knitting this, it gave the cowl a perfect weight and warmth. I'm so pleased she loves it so much. She has recently ordered a hat to match and I'll be making that later this week. 
Karen ordered the Mistress Cowl in matte black and I'm very happy with the way it came out. She actually loved it so much, she ordered a second one for her niece! This piece is super soft and extremely vampy. It is meant to show a bit of the neck and you can wear it with the opening slightly to the side or in the front and the collar can be placed up or down for a dramatic effect.
