Morning Thanks {Recipe: Eggnog French Toast}

French Toast Vertical

Pin It In my fantasy world, mornings would be calm…a time for soft music and happy chatter.  Ideally, I would get up before the kids, sit down to a nice cup of coffee, catch up on the days news (aka Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and make a delicious breakfast for all to share.

I’ve never been a fan of the huge Thanksgiving feast. I love food, I love gathering together, but “traditional” Thanksgiving food has never been my favorite.
