Sometimes my ridiculousness even amazes me.

I have no idea what in tarnation made me want to make some kind of roasted grape mascarpone French toast crostini business.

Honestly, I’m not even sure I got the capitalization right. ย Is it French Toast or is the toast French? Beats me.

So, anyhoo —

I’m keeping things short today because I have some lawyer stuff to do for a family situation. ย Wish me luck!

  1. All sorts of deliciousness is happening with this French toast buisness, Rachelle! Love the honey roasted grapes and mascarpone is ALWAYS a winner in my book! This looks like the perfect way to start every day! Good luck with the law stuff for the family, my dear! Cheers! Xo

    • I would love to see what you do if you veganize this! You are always so creative – so I’m sure it will be awesome!

  2. Okay, first of all – good luck (with your lawyer business). Second of all – WHAT?! I can imagine the sweet flavor of the grapes against the creaminess of the mascarpone set atop one of my favorite things…French toast. Holy! You’ve outdone yourself, my friend!

    • Shhhhh – don’t tell anybody – no one likes lawyers. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was a totally crazy idea and totally delicious! Thanks!
