The day after Thanksgiving may be the toughest time to cook for people who have hosted the big feast the day before. In my family, my stepmom calls it her day of rest. Her baguette french toast is the absolute perfect solution to keeping us all well fed with minimal effort on her part. She uses leftover (if there is any!) baguettes from dinner and throws any fruit she has in it, our favorite are blueberries! The best part about this breakfast, or brunch, is that you can make it the day before and pop it in the oven when you're ready to eat.

Millionaire's pie is one recipe that will have the kids and the adults at your table happy as can be. This family recipe comes from Arizona, where many Thanksgiving days temperatures can be in the 80's and a nice cool dessert is welcomed. Filled with many things you love, this pie is reminiscent of a sundae, filled with cool whip, pecans, maraschino cherries and pineapple. The best part, it takes five minutes to whip up, let it chill in the freezer and voila, you're good to go.
