Happy Friday, there's a bear in your toast.

I love Fridays! Today started with ALOT of coffee and I made my favorite french toast with baby Brioche bread and raspberries! It seems like we ran out of maple syrup but a dollop of raspberry jam did the trick! Problem is, when you get the jam out the bears come out too. Oh well, he wasn't too much of a bother....I always make too much food anyways!

Candy's Brioche French Toast

1 small brioche (or your favorite bread)
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 pat of butter
1/2 cup raspberries (sub bananas, or any other fruit)
icing sugar, cinnamon (if desired)
3 table spoons raspberry jam or maple syrup

Slice brioche into 3/4" slices and set aside. In a small bowl beat eggs and gradually add milk until mixed together. Dip slices of brioche in egg mixture until well coated. Heat frying pan on medium and add butter. Before butter gets too brown add slices of brioche and cook until browned on both sides. Arrange on plate and add fruit and jam! Sprinkle with icing sugar to taste or cinnamon. Beware of wandering bears as they will like to join in your feast....

After breakfast it was off to location scouting with JVDF for the upcoming AW2009 photoshoot! We found the most amazing loft to shoot in! Its in downtown LA in an area I didn't even know existed. The loft is huge and is owned by a fantastic new painter whose beautiful work is everywhere throughout. My good friend Lisa Aharon is flying in to do the makeup and just hang in LA for the weekend. The most fun is when you are working with fellow artists and friends and together you can make something AMAZING! Off to another meeting....hope that you all have a great weekend!
