This year, Mother’s Day is extra special for me because I get to share it with Leah! Yes, friends, Leah’s birthday is on Sunday and my baby… whom I’m sure I just brought home from the hospital yesterdayis turning 5! How this has happened, I have no idea. I’m totally convinced that time is moving way faster than it should be at this point! She went from this

Serious Leah

to this

Leah-almost-5

in a blink of an eye!

So, Leah and I will be celebrating our special day together. The only problem is, my youngest sweet babe does NOT like chocolate? What the what, right? How can someone not like chocolate? I am about to get her DNA checked as I’m positive any child that came from me surely would love chocolate! Anyway, we’ve decided that I get the morning meal (breakfast which will include chocolate) to celebrate Mother’s Day and Leah gets the rest of the day.

I’m hopeful my family will make this Double Chocolate French Toast for me for breakfast. Made with a King’s Hawaiian round loaf, this recipe for Double Chocolate French Toast takes your typical French Toast up a tasty notch! I love the sweet flavor of King’s Hawaiian bread, so adding it to this recipe in place of a normal white bread was the perfect swap. Try subbing out the plain bread in your recipes with sweet and fluffy King’s Hawaiian bread products. So, so good!

If they decide to do something different, I’ve told them I’d be happy with any of the breakfast/brunch recipes over on the King’s Hawaiian site! I’m not picky!

I hope you all have a wonderful and delicious weekend. Enjoy!

    Your daughter is such a cutie! Time will fly by, and she’ll be a teenager. Watch out.
    And doesn’t like chocolate?? Wow. What little kid doesn’t like chocolate? How do you bribe her? :p This french toast looks amazing though. I think I would gobble this down in no time

    She is so darling. I love that you shared Mother’s Day and her birthday. I cry every time i think about how quickly my boys are growing up. I can really see why people have 3, 4 and 5 kids!!

    I think all Mom’s would agree with you. Oh my it seems like yesterday. She is an adorable little girl, so that is a piece of good news. Lol.
    And of course for all us middle age Moms out there, life is all about chocolate. So there is no doubt this is a crowd pleasing—at least for women—–recipe.

    I have two friends that shared Mother’s Day this year with a child’s birthday. Can’t say pushing a babe is exactly what I’d want to do on my special day but it’s a pretty great gift! This looks to die for! I’ve just discovered Hawaiian bread and we’ve been toasting it all week!
