That is yummy French toast prepared by A, which isn’t French at all. But it doesn’t really matter; it still is one of our son’s favorite for breakfast.

My usual proportion is 1 egg to 1/4 cup of milk to 2 slices of bread but it depends entirely on personal preference.

Slices of white bread

Break an egg into a large plate and beat with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt, and milk. Dip a slice of bread into the mixture and flip to coat both sides. Soak briefly to absorb a little bit more of the mixture, then griddle on a non-stick pan with a coat of melted butter. Heat slowly and turn to brown both sides. While cooking, you may dip and soak another slice of bread in your egg mixture. Repeat the egg mixture procedure until all slices of bread are used.

Serve hot with more butter and maple syrup. It’s also yummy with jam. Great with hot choco drink or coffee.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.

  1. That french toast looks so yummy. I actually love eating french toast better than pancakes, which are too dry for my taste.

    Love your picture – made me salivate, especially the zoom shot.
