    Blueberry Lemon Pancakes

    These sweet and slightly tangy blueberry lemon pancakes will become a fast favorite in your house! Pancakes are such an easy breakfast staple. Plain pancakes only take a few ingredients … probably items you already have in your fridge and pantry. Then you can easily mix things up with fun add-ins based upon in-season fruit, produce deals from the farmers’ market or grocery store, and even spices from your cupboard. Some of our favorites pancakes over the years include peach cobbler pancakes, cinnamon sugar pancakes and, of course, traditional homemade blueberry pancakes. But, with regards to a traditional favorite, I’ve found that sometimes even the slightest of additions can take that…

    Homemade Blueberry Pancakes

    Homemade blueberry pancakes are super easy to make on weekends and perfect to reheat during the week for easy breakfasts! Pancakes are one of those recipes that once you make them from scratch, it seems ridiculous to have ever used a box mix, or even store-bought in the frozen foods isle! My basic recipe for homemade pancakes includes ingredients that even the most basically stocked fridge and pantry usually have: flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, oil, eggs and milk. In my book, simple is delicious. But, there are still times when you wanna liven things up a bit, give a little pizzazz or just use up some ripe fruit or…

  • Peach cobbler pancakes are a great excuse to combine breakfast and dessert into a yummy plate of awesome!

    Peach Cobbler Pancakes

    Peach cobbler pancakes are a great excuse to combine breakfast and dessert into a yummy plate of awesome! Sometimes you’re forced to get creative. One morning the kids wanted pancakes — easy enough, right? Normally, yes. I make pancakes all the time, for breakfast and dinner. However, on that particular day, we were missing a critical component: Syrup. What to do, what to do… Time to get food crafty, that’s what. Fruit syrups aren’t difficult to make. All it takes is a stone fruit or berries, water, and either sugar or a scoop of preserves, and a little time on the stove. It kind of reminds me of the syrups that used…

  • Use leftover mashed potatoes to make these dreamy, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth mashed potato pancakes!

    Mashed Potato Pancakes

    Mashed potatoes might be the quintessential comfort food. Or, at least, my quintessential comfort food. Mashed potato pancakes? Ahhh … divine. It’s rare that I whip up a batch of mashed potatoes and have leftovers “just because,” so I have to be intentional about it and throw in an extra potato or two to ensure leftover mashed potato goodness. I use a basic mashed potato recipe that’s no fail, and super yummy. It involves whatever potatoes are on sale (though my favorites are red skin OR russet because I believe they make the creamiest mash), whole milk, salted butter, salt, a dash of black pepper, and a hand-held mixer. Some of…

  • Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes - they're dairy-free!

    Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes

    This conversation is sponsored by Silk and showcases light and fluffy cinnamon sugar pancakes made with their Silk Cashewmilk instead of dairy. The opinions and text are all mine. We’re intense pancake eaters over here. I make them every weekend, with hopes that I’ll have enough leftover to reheat for busy weekday mornings. It rarely happens these days, now that the kids have near-adult appetites. Looks like they’ll either have to stop growing, or I’ll need to begin making double batches. Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes Last weekend I made my regular pancake recipe, but with a few significant tweaks that involved copious amounts of cinnamon and sugar, and new Silk Cashewmilk.…

    Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

    Lemon ricotta pancakes are a delightfully tart and citrusy version of a breakfast classic. I’m a firm believer that you can’t have too many pancake recipes. They’re just so … easy and yummy and practical. It’s like the trifecta of breakfast food qualities! This weekend I’m trying to make good use of a bag of organic lemons that I bought a couple weeks ago and have had stored in the crisper drawer of my fridge ever since. I’ve found most citrus fruits last for-practically-ever when they’re in there, which is good for me when you find a forgotten bag. Pancakes are a favorite. I’ve said time and time again how…

  • Fluffy Homemade Pancakes

    Fluffy Homemade Pancakes

    Disclosure: I am a Stonyfield ambassador, which  means I’m being compensated for posts like this one, and I’ve also been given free Stonyfield yogurt. As always, the opinions, recipes, ideas, etc., are all mine! I don’t need to go on and on about how much we love pancakes in our house, because you can easily read about that in the other pancake recipes I have on the blog. I will reiterate how useful leftover pancakes can be during the work-week though. My kids both love them reheated in the microwave, and it’s arguably quicker than pouring a bowl of cereal! Today I cooked a batch of fluffy homemade pancakes. They…

    Easy Blueberry Pancakes

    Every weekend I make pancakes. EVERY WEEKEND. I just can’t help myself. They’re super easy to pull together, and the flavor combos are endless. Got leftover super-ripe berries, or bananas that are on the edge of being too brown? Pancakes are your best friend. Plus, the leftovers make for a quick and delicious breakfast during the work-week. Why eat a granola bar when you can have steamy, buttery pancakes in less than a minute? So, a pint of blueberries found its way into my shopping cart last week…. Easy Blueberry Pancakes Stir the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl – don’t worry about sifting them; there’s no need! I…
