Three Grain Pancakes

These Three Grain Pancakes were a hit, plus a sneaky way to get something healthy into the bellies of my unsuspecting kiddos. My kids like them because they are sweetened with honey, and I like them because…well, I like them because they are sweetened with honey too, but high fiber wholesome grains aren’t bad either.

My kids and I love pancakes for dinner. We could have them every night of the week without complaint. This summer we’ve been trying out a lot of different pancake recipes. And with school out for summer, I’ve had more time to get my kids involved in the process of making them.

Homemade Oreos From Scratch

Oh, look at that?! It’s been a month since I’ve posted anything on here!

Sorry y’all, (I can say that because I once lived in Texas), anyway it’s been a crazy whirl wind of non-stop everything for the past month. You know what I mean right? When sun, fun, deadlines, family, friends, school, work, license renewals, CEU’s and birthdays all demand your attention? And the hobby stuff (AKA, the blog), well it gets put on the back burner for a bit.

It’s not that I haven’t been trying new recipes or haven’t been taking photos of delicious food, or haven’t been thinking of what we all should be drooling over next (teaser: Ice Cream Cake!). Definitely not any of those things.

What it is, is having the time to put them all together in one complete thought out blog post. One that actually makes sense, has a drool inducing photo and a recipe or link. This stuff all takes time you know. Er, maybe you don’t know. Well then, I’ll tell you. Completing the recipe, photographing it, editing the photos, writing long stories to introduce the recipes (yes, I know I can get long-winded), editing the draft, fitting all the photos in, linking to sources and reviewing it, it all takes time. In fact, sometimes it takes me a few weeks or months to get some posts completed. Even if I get one post done, I might bump it for another recipe post depending on inspiration.
