Breakfast with Chickadees

French Toast with Maple Apple Compote

I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine and am still trying to figure out what was light about it! :) 

The Paxton kiddos stayed the night last night and when they woke up this morning I made this really delicious breakfast.  They said it tasted like apple pie.
 This is the fun part!
 The apple compote was just simmering a little butter with syrup and apples.
 It tasted like apple pie on top of French toast.
 Happy kids!  They are a little sleep deprived from the sleep over.
 Then the girls had a dance party to the Hannah Montanna CD!
This is the crappy part!  I hate dishes!!!!


  1. I think that looks delicious and now I'm hungry for some french toast etc.
    Isn't it funny that at a sleep over you don't get much sleep >> :))

  2. I hate dishes too! That's why I leave them to the doll headed fairies :)

    DE-LISH!! Come over any time so long as you whip this yummy number up!


  3. OOOO!!!!! Hot apples is one of my favorite flavors! Looks scrumpsh!

Your crazy quilt wall hanging looks fab, I LOVE crazy quilt stuff-my mom is so good at it. I can't QUILT worth a crap-I need t o take a class. XOXOXOXO

  6. Ok, I HAD to look at these again. It's a cold, rainy late-Sept. morning and these are looking extra good!

  7. Mmmmmm... Looks so good! I love to cook but I hate dishes too. Especially after I prepare everything and cook - then I'm tired and just want to relax!!!
    Anyway - lucky little girls. Kind of reminds me of our craft adventures where we come home so much more exhausted than when we left.

  8. Hi Sherry!
