What is the start of a week without a little weekend-brunch inspiration? It wouldn't be a typical work-day without dreaming of breakfast in bed, brunch with the gals, or mile high pancake stacks — or maybe that's just how I get through the workday 😉 Either way, Elizabeth is whipping up the most delicious cream puff pancakes & they are a definite must for your next breakfast event. See what I mean below! xo, LK

Hi, friends! Elizabeth here & today is all about the french-iest of French toasts there ever was! When I bite into a big cream puff I instantly think of being in Paris one day. Although I can't have the authentic puff every day I can make French toast and feel just as French-y, and you can too! Whip this up for a fun French themed brunch with you girlfriends for the ultimate stay-cation, mimosas required!

  • Butter for frying


  • 1½ Cup of heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ Cup of powdered sugar
