I {heart} Pancakes

I've never been one that "likes" to cook. It's just one of those things that you have to do. Well either that or eat fast food for the rest of your life. Bleah. 

However, every once in a while I get excited about cooking. Why? Well, for instance, when you find a super yummy recipe that tastes like it came straight out of a restaurant and each and every ingredient is one that you have heard of before and you can find at the local grocery store. In addition to that, the prep is easy and you don't have to have a $500 pan to make it. I like to cook then.

Also, when I find a really good recipe that is easy and tastes good and my kids ohhh and ahhhh and tell me what a great cook I am and ask when I'm going to make it again. I like to cook then.

Tonight was one of those nights. My kids were whining about how hungry they were and every two minutes would not-so-subtly remind me. My son even said, "mom, don't you hear my stomach growling?".  They made it sound like it was 10 o'clock at night and they hadn't eaten all day. 

I have to admit, I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner tonight. At the same moment that I was about to strangle pat my kids on the head and tell them that I was going to get dinner ready, I happened upon this blog post. Oh. My. Yumminess!!! This woman just might ruin my hatred for cooking because everything I have made of hers is The Yum! The Pioneer Woman just may be my hero. Especially tonight. 

Guess what I made for dinner? 

It started like this....*ahem*..Yes, I know I use too much stuff. Don't judge me! 

Pancake Prep

Then the best pancakes that I've ever eaten served up with butter and with my home-made syrup....The Yum!!

Day 47 - Mmmmm Pancakes

Kids loved them and ate them in like five seconds! I recommend doubling the recipe. If not, you will just be mixing it back up again :)
Oh, wanna make my home-made syrup? It's easy peasy!

Take 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup karo syrup, 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar, 3T of butter and mix until melted. Then bring to a medium boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes. If you want it thicker, add less water. Too thick? Add a bit of water until desired thickness!  I no longer will eat store bought syrup. It's that good. 

I hope you try these. Let me know and enjoy!

Much Love!!
