Oh Joan

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past eight years or so, you’ve probably heard of the AMC hit series Mad Men. Neil and I are devotees, and we’re enjoying the final half of the final season this spring. In a recent episode, my favorite character, Joan Holloway, orders room service in a hotel. “I’d like a grapefruit, a glass of skim milk, and a pot of coffee.” After a short pause, she smiles to herself, and says, “… and some french toast.”

This one’s for you, Joan.

This is the raspberry french toast from Make It Ahead. It’s really good hot out of the oven, but it’s equally good served cold, like bread pudding. Like Joan Holloway, it’s rich and delicious, but also surprisingly colorful. I’m not going to say anything about easy, because that would be rude to my girl Joan.
