Bubbies French Toast

My Bubbie (for those of you that don't know that translate to Grandmother in Yiddish) is a forever presence in my life and was such a force to be reckoned with while I was growing up. I have such fond memories of sitting with her in the kitchen while she cooked non stop for everyone that walked in the door. My Bubbie and Zaddie (Grandfather) came over from Poland after WWII. So in typical old world fashion the solution to everything is to cook and make you sit and eat. Eat till you can not eat anymore, then ask you 2 hrs later if you are hungry. One of my most favorite things was her version of french toast. I can close my eyes and still see me as a child sitting at that round table in her kitchen and smell it cooking. MMMM those kind of memories are always so delish!

So as I got older and started to have my own family I started to bring out the old recipes for my kids. Now it's a sure fire way to make sure everyone is here on a Sunday morning. Even people that do not live here and are just friends of the family show up for Bubbies French toast. I hope you and yours enjoy this as much as we do :)
