Breakfast in Bed – Delightful French Toast

We’re still celebrating our Mothers!

I am always trying to dream up different and new ways to surprise my mom for Mother’s Day. Let’s face it – she is my world and she is always doing extra special things for me all of the time. One of my favorites when I was a kid was breakfast in bed. Today we are going to be making some super delicious french toast. It is perfect for a very scrumptious breakfast in bed surprise for that very special mother. It is a really simple thing to make and it is just a touch bit fancier than the usual pancakes. So take a leap and do something easy and fun, that will make your mom feel extra special and loved by you. I promise you that she will not forget it.
