a sweet morning in {hollywood}…



Happy Valentine's Day! To start off your sweet morning, I thought I'd virtually feed you this Hot Chocolate French Toast from Griddle Cafe that I enjoyed for brunch yesterday with my friend Bonnie. Double chocolate-chip brioche {love the melted chocolate chips inside} is topped with a pile o' marshmallows, toasted up top, then sprinkled with some cinnamon and extra powdered sugar. Gooey, melty, sweet, and chewy…it made our hour-long wait for brunch so worthwhile. — Joy

  5. I’m so glad I don’t live in Southern California. I’m so tempted by your photos to forget my food allergies and dive right in. I absolutely love your photography.

  6. Hi Joy! I LOVE Griddle Cafe! I just moved to LA and I look for any and all opportunities to eat “Mom’s French Toast” there. It’s soooo good. For the soul 😉 Thanks for your lovely blog!
