Friends in San Diego!

Phil and Colton came to SD last weekend... and I forgot to bring my camera to most of the places we went too. But I promise we did a lot more than just play scattergories, which I am really really bad at.

Extraordinary desserts. Its delicious.

It's coffee
Look! It's that silly bit again...
They finally have a picture together ;)

Bacon, Potato, and Cheddar Frittata

I made my frist Frittata this weekend. Though there are a few things that I would have done differently (like cut the potatoes a lot smaller), I think it turned out pretty well! Here's what you will need...

6 Large eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons half and half
4 ounces of bacon (about 4 slices)
1/3 cups of cheddar cheese
2 scallions
Salt and peper

First turn on the broiler
Mix eggs, half and half, salt and pepper.
Cook bacon
After your done cooking the bacon leave about 1 tablespoon of bacon grease for the potatoes
Cook the potatoes for about 15 mins
Mix bacon, scallions, and cheese together then add to the skillet
Cook on the stove for about 1 minute until the eggs start the form large curds, but eggs are still wet. Let eggs set to form a base, this should only take 30 seconds. Then put it in the oven for about 2 minutes.
let sit for 5 more minutes
Enjoy with some yummy berries...

The Famous San Diego Black Out

Well as most of you know San diego was without power on Thursday night. I swear for a solid hour I thought it was the end of the world. Our phones stopped working and there was traffic everywhere. It also didn't help that my mom was telling me the power plant was exploding and that I needed to watch out for hazardous rays (What! how the heck do I do that!!)! After I realized the world was not ending Alli and I enjoyed a night in the dark. We ate Chex mix and watched a movie on our computer. I actually didn't mind it... it was kind of peaceful.

French Toast

I made some french toast the other day and I thought I would share it with you all. I love french toast but, I hate when it comes out all soggy. So I found a recipe that would help with the soggy mess. Heres the secret to french toast.. are you ready... bake the bread first for 15 mins in the oven. Baking it makes it crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, a perfect texture for french toast.

Heres what you will need...

8 large slices of heart white sandwich bread
1 1/2 cups ho milk, warmed
3 large egg yolks
3tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon of table salt
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
toast the bread on a rack for 7 mins on each side

Mix everything together (Make sure the butters melted, it turns into a big mess if its not)

enjoy with some syrup and powdered sugar!
