Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Definitely a keeper! I served this for dinner on a night when my husband was managing the kids for dinner. I used apples, cranberries, fresh pineapple I had leftover and some chopped candied pecans (what the heck!). My oldest son said it was 'generally awesome' and my husband said he had to fight the kids to save some for me to eat when I got home. Love that you can prepare it ahead -- I let it soak for a couple of hours. I followed other reviewers advice and cut down to 2/3 stick of butter. Next time I'll try 1/2 stick of butter (1/4 cup), 2/3 cup brown sugar and whole wheat french bread to cut down on the sweetness a bit.

Chocolate Pineapple Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
I used fresh pineapple - maybe too much because the top layer came out too gooey even though the bottom was firm (or perhaps it needed an extra 5 minutes in the oven). My kids mostly played with it. I sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top about 15 minutes before it was done to garnish the top. Pretty but a bit bland - I think it needs more dense pineapple AND chocolate flavor to be a big hit. Maybe butter instead of shortening? Maybe a teaspoon of lemon juice or some zest in the pineapple 1/2?
