They are light, tender and fluffy and the raspberries and chocolate make this breakfast feel very decadent.  I’m easing back into it.

I’ve been relaxing, having fun, being with friends and family, and drinking a little more than my fair share (which is probably most people’s normal amount). I feel like I really haven’t had to seriously work in weeks and it has been …
