Sweet Roslyn.  Deep history and some of the friendliest, down-to-earth folks you will ever meet.  But you’ve heard me say that before…

If you are planning a trip to the area next summer, the Roslyn Sunday Market is a must.  Fresh veggies from local farms, homemade goods, beautiful art and best of all, the people.  It is a guaranteed excellent, heart warming good time.

A breakfast of orange ricotta hotcakes and we were out the Airstream door headed here . . .

The Roslyn Sunday Market and Orange Ricotta Hotcakes

That’s Paul looking at me funny (before I introduced myself) – you can find him at the Ellensburg market every Saturday from Parke Creek Farm.  Just about the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.  I say in Ellensburg because, sadly this was the last Sunday Market in Roslyn.

I will miss you Roslyn, so much.  The weather is slowly changing and it’s time to change our Airstream venue — I can almost hear the San Juan Islands calling . . .

This really turned out to be incredible.  Probably the best french toast I have ever made.  In the end you sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of the baked french toast and put it under the broiler for about 30 seconds.  Then what happens is almost magical.  The sugar carmelizes and when left to cool for a few minutes, turns into a hard candy shell on top.  Almost like a french toast creme brulee!

You can use whatever bread you like but since I wanted my boys to have sustained energy for another day of skiing, I used multi-grain.
