Welcome to Little Miss Cookalot

I love to cook and try new dishes, and more often than not I am asked for the recipe, so I decided to start Little Miss Cookalot as a way of sharing my successes, and failures in the kitchen. The recipes that you find on LMC are what you would find if you came to my house. As a mother of two, there is a focus on food for fussy eaters and you may also notice I like to bake... Most recipes here are amended from well known chefs/cookbook authors, and you will find the source at the bottom of each recipe unless its entirely my own creation. Check back regularly as I hope to add at least 2 new recipes every week.

Strawberry French Toast

2 thick slices white bread
2 tsp strawberry fruit spread
1 egg lightly beaten
1/4C milk
10g butter or margarine

Spread one piece of bread with the strawberry fruit spread and top with the other piece of bread.  Whisk together the egg and milk in a shallow bowl.  Dip the sandwich into the egg mixture. Drain off any excess.
Melt the butter in a non-stick fry pan over medium heat.  Cook the bread for 3 minutes each side or until golden brown.  Remove from heat and use a cookie cutter to cut French toast into shapes.

For a healthier option use a high fibre white bread and no-sugar style jam.

ELLA-ometre  Its been a while since I made this one, but its on the menu again this weekend.  Previously Ella loved it but I find the less jam the better otherwise it gets too sweet.
