French toast in casserole form – what could be more perfect, particularly for the weekend of General Conference? These will fit well with the new AlohaLarsen family tradition of caramel/pecan pull apart’s.
Thanks to awesome Aunt Becky for the find.

Watching General Conference in our family room, computer plugged into the TV
Using the recipe from this blog page – the start of something great?
In goes the cream cheese
In goes the vanilla
In goes the sugar, butter, and cinnamon
The picture doesn’t show it, but I want everyone to know that as I grabbed the PAM by the cap, the bottom fell off, and I was able to catch it with my other hand. Yep, I’m that awesome.
Assembling the beater
She’s ready for battle… I should remember this vigor next time I’m thinking about getting in a fight with her.
Dad and Baby beating together
Baby is loving this beater
So far, so good
Mom and Baby had to take a break from baking for diaper changing. Side note for new parents out there – chucks are probably the best purchase we have made so far during Baby’s short life.
If I wore diapers, changing them would probably make me this happy, too
More skill needed for the picture taker than for the egg breaker…
…Good thing my photographer is awesome
She gets excited about the weirdest things
I’m proud of the fact that I’m allowed to do the jobs involving pointy objects
Ready to soak
Fitting so far
That’s it, for better or worse
Just a few last steps
A dash more cinnamon, and we’re oven ready
In the oven for 40 minutes. And then, we feast.
T minus 40 minutes
Mom and Baby had to take another break, this time to eat. He was pleased.
