When All Else Fails: Pancakes


Last night’s dinner was to be Chicken Tetrazinni. As you can see this is NOT Chicken Tetrazinni. I had all the ingredients for Chicken Tetrazinni. In fact we had gone to the store to buy the whole milk, cream, and Parmesan cheese to make the Chicken Tetrazinni. But, I did not want it. Yes, I…

Joy of Cooking Pancakes


Some nights dinner needs to be easy and be comforting. We are getting ready for some icy, rain, sleet combination tonight. Getting ready means that we pull everyone home and cancel all plans. We have a fire in the fireplace and finding all the candles in the house, just in case. We stopped at the…

Chunky Monkey Pancakes


One of my daughter’s favorite ice creams is Chunky Monkey. A banana flavored ice cream with chocolate pieces in it. As I was trying to come up with a new pancake flavor to make this is what was what we had ingredients for.¬† We are still trying to get dinner on the table as often…

Brown Sugar Pancakes


I love brown sugar. When I make Chocolate Chip Cookies I make them with only brown sugar (no white granulated sugar). I love the richer flavor from the brown sugar. We were talking about making pancakes for dinner and I thought why not try to make them with all brown sugar like I do my…

French Toast Pancakes


We are a house divided, on French Toast that is. Two really like it and the other two are, meh, we will eat it if we have to. I know a large part of why we don’t like it is that I tend to use substandard bread to make the French toast. You need a…

German Oven Pancake


I did a bit of digging to find out what is the difference between a Dutch Baby and German Pancakes. This is more a hybrid between the two dishes. The Dutch Baby has the same basic ingredients as this dish but is to be prepared in a special pan. The German Pancake is similar but…

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes


There was a video on Facebook and on Pinterst last year showing pancakes similar to these that looked so simple to make. Now they were perfect little cinnamon roll looking but I haven’t been able to make them like they do. We adapted this recipe for us and it works. They are not beautiful but…

Pumpkin Roll Pancakes with Sweet Cream Cheese Filling


Is it dessert? Is it dinner? Why yes it is! Have you seen the pumpkin rolls with the cream cheese filling? This is a take-off on that idea. No, it is NOT the same recipe so the pancakes are a bit more pumpkin bread like so it is not as sweet but the filling is…

Buttermilk Pancakes – IHOP Copycat


When we get towards the end of the month and pay-day I am trying to stretch out all the things we have in the pantry and cupboards for just a few more days. That is why I always buy an extra bag or two of sugar and flour during the month so that I can…

Fluffy Greek Yogurt Blueberry Pancakes


It is the beginning of blueberry season here in Michigan. ¬†Which means in our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share we are getting 2-3 pints of blueberries each week. My children love to eat them right from the container but I save one out just to make blue berry pancakes with. As I was looking through…

Chocolate Chip Pancakes


As things wind down to the end of the month we are all hoping that life will finally slow to a dull roar. We have Irish Fest next weekend and then just our usual summer business. We are all hoping for some rejuvenating rest before gearing up for the heart of summer. My daughter has…

Yummy Blueberry Pancakes


One of the last items left from our No Buy January was a bag of farm fresh blueberries from our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share last summer. My daughter had a friend spend the night over the weekend so I made blueberry pancakes for the girls to use them up! Verdict: These were really good….
