Happy Valentine’s Day

I know you all are thinking, what? Valetine’s Day is Sunday. Yes, you are right, but I thought that I would post a great recipe to make for your loved one today, just in case anyone out there needed any ideas.

Thoughts before Cooking:

Ever since I have heard the word “brioche” uttered by Hugh Jackman in Kate & Leopold I have wanted to sample some of my own. I was like yes, give me some.

And later in the film he makes this yummy dish for her breakfast:

I don’t know what it was, but when I looked through this cookbook and I saw Challah or Brioche French Toast, I just heard Hugh Jackman’s voice in my head saying “brioche” with that amazing accent and had to make it.

Of course it is not exact as I am on a budget and can’t get the same things Gwyneth Paltrow can afford to buy
