You guys! It’s finally spring, and berries are coming back into season.

I swear, I live for spring and summer when so many fruits are in season. And especially the berries when they’re sweet and juicy.

French toast is one of my favorite breakfast/brunch dishes. Mostly because it’s simple to make and I just love that it’s so custardy. Topped with maple syrup, it’s almost like having dessert for breakfast.
