Since starting this blog only a short time ago, I have tried out a couple of new recipes on my family. There has been some success.
Well, wow..I wasn't prepared for the success that I had with this recipe. They loved it. I mean LOVED it. Everybody. All 6 of them. It's a darn miracle. If your family likes french toast, this is a no brainer.
Try it. You (oh, and your family) will love it too!
