Lisa-The Domestic Life Stylist, shares her holiday tradition for making Christmas morning extra special.
I love Christmas time. The holidays are a time for family, great food, special traditions and indulgences. One of those special traditions that I have, is making eggnog French toast on Christmas morning.
Seriously, this is one of those indulgences that is too hard to pass up. Just the smell of it cooking will wake everyone up. Your family will be craving this French toast every Christmas morning. Just don’t say that I didn’t warn you.
