It's the day after Thanksgiving and my husband is off from work, which means this morning he had time to make one of our favorite breakfasts: caramelized apple pancake. The munchkin goes nuts for the cinnamon-sugar glazed apples atop a fluffy pancake - because really, who wouldn't?
On lazy Sunday mornings (like today) one of our favorite breakfasts is Alton Brown's Instant Pancakes. If you haven't tried this recipe yet, you must. By making the dry mix ahead of time you get all the convenience of a boxed instant pancake mix without any of the preservatives.
The munchkin goes to preschool a few mornings a week and it seems like no matter how early we set our alarms we're always in a rush. It drives me crazy. So lately we've been experimenting with a streamlined approach to breakfast on preschool days.
When I woke up this morning big, fluffy flakes of snow were falling from the sky and the backyard was covered in at least 3 inches of snow. There was something about all that wintery beauty that make me think: I want waffles.
This may sound crazy, but have you ever given your preschooler spinach and ginger in a drink? What about carrots and celery? Until recently I was convinced that the munchkin would not drink something green, but I was wrong. In fact, these days his favorite breakfast drink is his...
We got our first snow flurries yesterday morning! I was in the kitchen stirring a pot of apple spice oatmeal when the munchkin ran up to me shouting: 'It's snowing! It's snowing mommy!' And indeed it was. Big white flakes were fluttering down past the trees and onto our back...
There are many wonderful things about homemade strawberry jam. For one, it tastes like sunshine. By which I mean, a spoonful of this jam makes you think about plump strawberries growing ripe in sunny country fields.
I firmly believe that healthy baked goods don't need to taste healthy. Know what I mean? This is especially true when you have a toddler, because no amount of pleading is going to convince a pint-sized connoisseur to eat something if it isn't yummy.
I've been making these pumpkin pancakes for a couple years now and - full disclosure - I put Jack-O-Lantern faces on them even before a toddler was in the picture. But eating these is much more fun when you have a little guy gobbling them up.
These whole wheat blueberry-zucchini muffins are a delicious way to use up summer blueberries and zucchini. The muffins come together in a snap, bake in less than thirty minutes and last for months in the freezer.
The munchkin and I are loving this fun story about 10-year-old Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III's attempts to capture and train a dragon. I see all the books in this series in our near future. See more of our favorite chapter books »
