Epicurean Kentuckian: Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast

RECIPE: Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast

From the Kitchen at Tucker's Station Farms. This version of "French Toast" has a few more ingredients than the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast recipe posted on June 27, 2014 but since you make this recipe up the night before and refrigerate it I think that it's actually easier to make than last week's recipe. One thing's for sure it's a whole lot more impressive. This is the breakfast you might want to serve when your mother in law visits! If you have a small family this recipe can easily be divided in half. Just divide all the ingredients in half and bake it in an 8x8 pan.

A word with a concept to give serious consideration: Woonerf

Where Walkers, Cyclists, Street Calming has precedence

There are places in the world with living streets where pedestrians and cyclists have priority over motorists, using techniques shared space, traffic calming and low speed limits, according to this entry in Wikipedia: Woonerf. The idea is catching on in the United States, in places like Chicago, where DePaul University is trying the idea for its Kenmore Campus. See also: Living Streets/DePaul To Restructure Kenmore as Dutch-Inspired 'Woonerf'. The Wikipedia article says that 6,000,000 Dutch now live in Woonerven.
