Just yesterday, we fully transferred all the material from the previous blog tot he new. 95 recipes and ideas in food and cooking. Yes 95! That means that soon enough we will cross the barrier of the 100 recipes. In five years of life, with our problems and struggles I was able to get 100 recipes, ideas or just thoughts on food. At the same time, I was able to share some tool and dinning experiences. Know as I look the next five posts needed to get to the magic 100 recipes mark, I think I should make them special. So join me to countdown to number 100!

French toast is my choice of breakfast when I want to treat myself to something awesome. Something Amazing something great.

Before we get to that though, we need to learn about its history. Origins etc. It is been a while that we felt with historic facts in this blog but, we are back to it. You missed it?
