French Toast and Blackberry Syrup

Crunchy French Toast

I was so disappointed yesterday when at the store I didn’t see as many berries as I’d been seeing in the past couple of months. I wanted to buy blackberries to go with the pictures on this post, but at almost 4 dollars half a pint I decided to just get strawberries and blueberries. I think they still look pretty in the plate above. What do you think?

Anyway, crunchy French toast is one of my favorite breakfast and one of the very first recipes I posted on this blog more than 2 years ago. Over time I have changed it a little bit and for this one I used corn flakes and toasted oatmeal for the crust. Instead of preparing the berries with sugar, orange juice and orange liquor, I made a blackberry syrup (recipe at Epicurious.com) that tasted delicious and looked amazing. The only thing that I missed was the mimosas, again.

Leela mentioned on my last post that I am having fun with photography, and she’s so right! I am obsessed right now with taking pictures of food that flies, drips, splashes and makes a mess, hehe. I just like to make things less boring, not that food photography is boring at all. Playing with colors and new compositions give pictures a new edge, I think, and it puts me in a very good mood. Anyway, this post is making me really hungry and I still have a couple of slices of toast left…
