  1. yummy recipe! I will try this one for sure. Oh and I love your header about laundry. That is so true. I have a sign in my laundry room saying "the laundry room - loads of fun."

  2. We're crazy for french toast at our house & this looks amazing! Yum. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'm off to read "Forks was a waste of time" . . .

    Warmly, Michelle
