Gluten Free Pancakes – fluffy and light!

gluten free pancakes

Gluten Free Week continues… If you have to be gluten free Portland is a great city to live.  There are lots of grocery stores, bakeries and restaurants that cater to gluten free eating.  I’m going to share a few new gluten free bakeries we discovered here on the blog this weekend. I always look at cooking for my gluten free girl, Cali, as a challenge.  I want to try and recreate family favorites so that she can eat them too.  I did a lot of experimenting while she was home.  [Continue Reading...]

Today’s recipe for Peanut Butter Pancakes is one of the recipes from our annual Back to School Breakfast that we held in September.  Thanks to a few of my loyal readers who reminded me I hadn’t shared the recipe yet.  Glad somebody is paying attention!! Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods.  When we go out to breakfast I am usually a sucker for the pancakes but I do love making them at home too. Sometimes it is fun to change it up a bit, something different from the [Continue Reading...]

Whole Grain Pancakes

Healthy Breakfast

We are taking a short break from Wedding Carnival posts to bring you a healthy whole grain pancake breakfast recipe! No worries, though I’ll be back tomorrow with another Wedding Carnival post soon. School is in full swing around here and when my kids were all living at home breakfast was always a bit of a challenge. As I kid and even as now as an adult I prefer to drink my breakfast rather than eat it.  I was a big fan of Carnation Instant Breakfast growing up and now [Continue Reading...]

Today is National Pancake Day – seriously! I guess you can get free pancakes at IHOP today but I promise if you make these for dinner instead your family will love you. It’s like having dessert for dinner disguised as breakfast! As I was doing a little blog surfing a few weeks ago and I came across a recipe that stopped me in my tracks. I think I began drooling all over the key board immediately. I was visiting over at Two Peas and their Pod. She had recreated an [Continue Reading...]

Swedish Pancake Recipe

Swedish-Pancakes_0001-400x267

We are pancake lovers around our house.  We love all kinds of pancakes! We love nice, hearty, healthy pancakes like these oatmeal pancakes. And we love a nice light, delicate pancake like today’s Swedish Pancake recipe. I used my trusty old cast iron skillet to make them but any nice frying pan will do. There is just something about cooking in cast iron that I think makes food taste better! The trick to getting a nice smooth batter without a lot of lumps is to use your blender – just [Continue Reading...]

Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal Pancakes

In my unending attempts to be a better wife and mother I have been trying to incorporate more whole grains and less of all that white stuff into my family’s diet.  This can be a bit tricky when your family is use to only white flour! This past week my husband and I went to breakfast and I ordered the oatmeal pancakes in my attempts to eat healthier. They were delicious.  As soon as we got home I set out to find a recipe so that I could duplicate them.  [Continue Reading...]

I love a good pancake. I love a good light and fluffy pancake. I love pancakes for breakfast or for dinner. No thin, skinny pancakes at our house, unless it is a yellow pancake!

I was excited to give Pioneer Women’s  Sour Cream Pancakes a try.  Named after Marlboro Man’s grandmother this recipe has been served on the ranch for years. [Continue Reading...]

Breakfast With Santa and Buttermilk Pancakes

When my children were younger one of our favorite holiday traditions was to have Breakfast with Santa downtown at Meier & Frank each year.  We probably did it for 10 years or so.  It was fun to get dressed, eat breakfast in the beautiful Georgian Room, enjoy the entertainment and of course see Santa. Sadly, my children have all outgrown the experience and the Georgian Room is gone but we decided our neighbor children hadn’t outgrown it so we started our own Breakfast with Santa at our house.  For the last [Continue Reading...]
