Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I made this for our church's Easter breakfast. It looked so yummy and had such good reviews that I didn't try it out first. It was a HUGE hit and I enjoyed making something new. We didn't get to eat it for about an hour after I took it out of the oven (it hung out in my Pyrex carrier), and I did not take extra maple syrup. It did not need it (probably because of the pie filling sweetening it up) but when I make it at home I will drizzle on more because you really can't have too much real maple syrup! Based on other reviews (and my being too tired to face peeling and dicing apples) I did substitute the can of apple pie filling for the diced apples. I also added a couple of handfuls of Craisins. I also heeded the advice to up the temp to 350 and baked for 50 minutes. I also used a few bags of beans to weigh it down as it soaked overnight. The strata puffs up A LOT, so be sure to use a large enough baking dish - not all 9x13 baking dishes are created equal. It will settle back down as it sits - after 5 minutes I was able to put the lid of my carrier on it with no problem. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
These were so easy and SO good. My five year old daughter kept asking for more. So easy that they will be my next go-to recipe for any occasion that requires me to bring baked goods! There have been several comments about how they look. Toy do have to smooth out the batter if you want them pretty, but if you leave them "rustic" you end up with yummy crunchy bits on top!
