dinners at fancy restaurants are fun, sure, but for me, at least,
romance is best when it’s a little more relaxed, and a lot more
intimate. Which is why there’s little in the world that makes me
happier than a long, lazy morning spent lounging about with my sweetie,
the two of us cozied up under a fluffy down comforter, closeted away in
our little love nest. The
loveliest boy in the world to snuggle with, NPR on the radio, a streak
of sunlight hitting my face – and a big, beautiful breakfast served up
on a tray. One hundred percent pure heaven.
Looking for a lavish, luscious
breakfast to share with your honey this Valentine’s weekend? Try out
our menu of baked French toast, spicy potatoes and scrambled eggs, which not only tastes marvelous, but let’s you do a lot of
the work the afternoon or evening before … giving you more time to
linger in bed in the morning.
Beat the eggs. Add milk,
cream, sugar and vanilla. Soak the bread slices in the custard mixture
overnight (a 9” square baking pan works best; you want something just
big enough that you can arrange the slices in a single layer).
The next morning: Grease a
baking pan with plenty of butter. Arrange the bread slices. Bake in a
preheated 350F oven for 30-45 minutes, until the slices are puffy and
golden. Serve with maple syrup.
