Happy "Toast" Tuesday

HELLO.jpg

After all these holiday feasts, I am wanting to get back in the routine of eating well and exercising. So my first fun foodie change for the #NewYear is to celebrate 'Toast Tuesday' every week (hopefully sharing with you all once a month) with a new and creative ingredient combination for my toast. The combinations are endless and the food photography is getting better and better!
