First off, I’ve got to say a BIG thank you to everyone who said such nice things about my new design. If I could give you all big plates of fruity, whip creamy French toast I would! Your feedback helps me more than you know, and I appreciate it so much, so keep it comin’! :)

Now, onto the good stuff. I don’t know about you, but I’m a nut for French toast. And fruit. And breakfast in general. So, when McCormick contacted me about trying one of their recipes for a spring promotion, I was all up on this one. With a few little tweaks and a whole lot of homemade whipped cream, I had French toast perfection.
