Lemon French Toast

The hot summer days are long gone, but they are replaced by warm Autumn days. I am finding most of the weekends in September have been warm enough to have my weekend breakfast outside, although this is with a cardigan, I must add. I was reminiscing of my mini break earlier this year to Spain and although I never ate this for my breakfast in Spain it is a dish that reminds me of my holidays and summer. I have adapted this from the original recipe found in Nigella Express, swapping the orange for a sharp lemon, and topped with tropical pineapple cooked in a warmed lemon curd. This topping was topped on a cinnamon spiced bread soaked and fried in butter. I loved this as a weekend breakfast and will make again when the weather improves or when I want to reminisce about my holiday. I'm sure you will enjoy this treaty weekend breakfast.
Here is how my Lemon French Toast turned out:

Maple syrup chicken and ribs.

I have seen this recipe crop up on several occassions over at http://www.nigella.com/ and pencilled this recipe of my to cook a while bake. I have made quite a few of Nigella's ribs recipes from her Forever Summer, Feast and Kitchen cook books. What intrigued me about this recipe is the use of maple syrup in the marinade and I wondered how well would this would work on a savoury dish. I usually use dark brown sugar as part of the marinade for sticky ribs. I marianded the chicken and ribs overnight with 5 tbsp of maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, apple juice, star anise and salt and pepper. I teamed my maple syrup with turmeric rice, which I first discovered after making South African Bobotie which I teamed with turmeric rice.
Here is how my maple syrup and chicken ribs turned out:
