Peanut Butter Pancakes

Peanut Butter Pancakes

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…]

Back to School Breakfast 2012 – Make Your Own Pancakes

Make Your Own Pancake Back to School Breakfast 1

Saturday morning I hosted what has become our annual Back to School Breakfast.  Since I no longer have children living at home that will be starting school, they are all away at college, I invite my neighbor kids. Tomorrow is the first day of school here in Portland. For this year’s breakfast I decided to do my own home version of a fun restaurant here in Portland called Slappy Cakes.  You sit around a table that has a griddle built into it and you make your own pancakes.  It is [Continue Reading…]

Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Compote


I’ve been on a pancake kick lately. There were these yummy and healthy Oatmeal Pancakes. And some lovely strawberry topped Swedish Pancakes. Tessa’s favorite pancake to make are her Yellow Pancakes. And remember Pioneer Women’s light and fluffy Sour Cream Pancakes But sometimes you just want a good old Buttermilk Pancake. Lately I have been playing around with flavored pancakes. Last week it was lemon. Yes, lovely lemon pancakes! I found the lemon pancake recipe over at Two Peas and their Pod. The recipe calls for whole wheat flour which [Continue Reading…]

Swedish Pancake Recipe


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 are the perfect way to sneak more whole grains into your diet and they are delicious! @yourhomebasedmom

Oatmeal Pancakes are the perfect way to sneak more whole grains into your diet and they are delicious! 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 [Continue Reading…]
