French Toast Cups with Orange Cream Cheese & Fresh Fruit

French Toast Cups with Orange Cream Cheese & Fresh Fruit

I don’t usually like to write a blog post telling ya’ll to buy a certain brand of cheese or sauce. I don’t like many of the pre-packaged foods because of all the preservatives, sugar and other things I don’t know about it that is packed inside them. In the past, I think I’ve only blogged […]
