Creme Brulee French Toast – you assemble this dish the night before and bake in the morning.
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoon corn syrup
- 2 baguettes or 1 loaf French Bread
- 5 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups half & half
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon Grand Marnier
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small heavy saucepan, melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup over moderate heat, stirring until smooth and pour into a greased 9 X 13 inch baking dish.
Cut 10 to 12 slices (1 inch thick) slices, reserving ends for another use. Arrange bread slices in one layer in baking dish over the melted syrup. Squeeze them slightly to fit. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, half & half, vanilla Grand Marnier and salt until well combined and ladle evenly over bread. Chill bread mixture, covered, overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bring bread to room temperature. Bake bread mixture, uncovered, in middle of oven until puffed and edges are pale golden, 35 to 40 minutes. The custard should be set. Serves 6.

For Cheri’s birthday in June we went ziplining! The Ozark Mountain Zipline opened here a couple of years ago. We’ve had great feedback from our guests, just no time to try it. We walked around the corner to their office, got fitted with our gear, boarded the bus and had a short ride to our destination. Our group was ages 7 to 70 with two very entertaining guides. The first two ziplines are short so you can get your nerve up. Then you’re off to the races. There are 10 lines woven through the Ozark forest as high as 250 feet and up to 1800 feet long. This is Rick coming in for a landing! We had a really great time and if you’re up for a little adventure we bet you will too.
