Lemon-Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with Fresh Blueberries & Syrup

Lemon-Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

I was chatting with my mom on the phone the other day. It was her and my dad’s anniversary and she was telling me all about this wonderful breakfast she had just had at a restaurant.

As she was describing it to me I thought – well, that doesn’t sound too hard to make…so here Mom – a late anniversary gift just for you! Continue reading

It made 8 medium sized pancakes…Crazy good!    Continue reading

And with the addition of vanilla they became our favorite weekend pancakes. Sometimes we add chocolate chips; sometimes it’s sliced bananas, strawberries or blueberries. They’re as easy to make as they are to eat! Enjoy!    Continue reading
