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: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
