Chardonnay French Toast

3-4 eggs
3-4 slices french bread
(cut from loaf, about 3/4 inch thick)1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup Chardonnay


Gently whip eggs, seasonings, half & half and chardonnay in a shallow pan. Soak bread at least 1 hour per side (use French bread -it doesn’t get soggy). Pan fry in margarine or butter until golden brown on each side.
Place in warmed oven until ready to serve.


White Cheddar and apples

Apple Conserve:

2/3 cup (about 1 medium apple), peeled and diced granny smith apple
2/3 cup (about 1 medium apple), peeled and diced red apple
1/2 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons balsamic or apple cider vinegar (experiment with both!)

In a small saucepan combine all ingredients except the cheese. Cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool.

Layer the conserve in between two slices of White Cheddar and sprinkle the walnuts on top.

Both recipes serve two…very Valentine!
