Idiot's Guides in Full Color

I love this book, and let me stress that you do not need to be an idiot to enjoy it. Using that term just means it is illustrated and fully detailed on each recipe and how to make them.
I first tried the Boston Baked Beans recipe and it was so good that we ate it all before I remembered I needed a photo, so I chose another recipe to check out.
Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
I chose this recipe because Fall is in the air and pumpkin is on the brain. Mix breakfast foods and pumpkin together and you can't go wrong! So Pumpkin French Toast Casserole it was. Man, it was delicious too! My only criticism is I like some pan sear crust on my french toast, and with the slow cooker you will never get that crispy crust you look for. So while I enjoyed it, I think I will stick to french toast in the pan.
I can't wait to do more, and frankly, make the beans again. They were AMAZEBALLS! 
Definitely a great choice in the Idiot's Guide collection!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
