Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancakes

I love my pancakes and I make them a bit different each time. This extra hit of cinnamon with buttermilk makes for a slightly tangy dish. My kids are asking me for breakfast casseroles for “Breakfast for Dinner Thursday.” Yes, every Thursday we have breakfast for dinner. It is easy to make and tends to…

5 Flavored Pancakes for Breakfast or Dinner

Happy Valentine’s Day! Pancakes for me are love. I made a post in 2016 about recreating our first Valentine’s Day.

Simple Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

We are a breakfast for dinner family. At least once a week, usually Wednesday or Thursday because they seem to be the toughest day of the week, we have some sort of breakfast/brunch meal. I love eggy casseroles with all sorts of toppings mixed in because they can be made ahead of time and rest…

Ham & Cheese Croissant Casserole

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

I love our breakfast for dinner nights. Pancakes and waffles are a favorite of ours. We love breakfast foods just not for breakfast. Experimenting with flavored pancakes and waffles is something my family loves. These apple cinnamon pancakes were from apples that were over ripe to eat but perfect for cooking. They were just a…

Sweet Potato Bread

In our area pumpkin is hard to find this year. I was able to get 2 pie or sugar pumpkins from our grocery store and 1 from our farm share. Pie or sugar pumpkins are smaller, more fleshy and less stringy than carving pumpkins. We cut them in half, removed the seeds, and roasted them….
