French Toast Hearts


 Start your morning with a little love:
French toast hearts, served with sweet maple syrup and tart cranberry preserves,
 a bowl of fruit and raspberry tea.

It's easy-  Cut the bread with a heart shaped cookie cutter before you dip in egg.

And remember, everything tastes better when the table is spread
with your Grandma's old, red, checked tablecloth.

How did you start your day?

  11. Oh my gosh, here I am writing you back to tell you I am trying not to eat sweets and lots of carbs, and look what you have posted on your blog! So tempting!!!! I am just watching portions and trying to eat the right stuff, adding supplements that are supposed to help cholesterol, and exercising more. We'll see what happens. I actually gained, now am back to where I started. Go figure! Good luck with it, keep trying. I will too!
    Hugs,

  16. Hello, my sweet friend,
    My mouth is watering at the sight of your Valentine French Toast. It looks so yummy and especially pretty on your Desert Rose. I have my Grandmother's Desert Rose dishes. I only use them once a year in the Spring. They look so pretty for Valentines!
    Blessings and thanks for your kind wishes for my little grandbaby, Chandler.
