Mini Pancake Muffins are my new favorite breakfast treat!  They are both a pancake and muffin, so you get the best of both worlds.  Plus, they are mini / bite-sized pieces so you can enjoy a variety or all of the same kind, and not feel bad about how much you eat 🙂 The first recipe is for Mini Pancake Muffins.  These are essentially plain pancakes in mini muffin form.  The recipe makes 24 mini muffins, so I kept 8 plain flavored, made 8 chocolate chip flavored, and made 8 blueberry flavored.  I do have a sweet tooth, so the chocolate chip were my favorite but all tasted amazing! The recipe can be found here. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin pan (with 24 small wells) with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.  This is the … Continue reading

Can you believe it?  Easter is right around the corner.  With all that is going on in the world these days I’m starting to lose track of time.  What is typically a day of family and friends gathering together will most likely be spend apart or perhaps in very small groups.  This puts quite the strain on menu planning when you won’t be hosting, won’t be attending the usual get-together, or are just trying to maintain social distance. Not to worry – I won’t let you know down!  I have created a menu of simple items you can make at home.  Some can be modified depending on the ingredients in your pantry, some can be reduced in size or doubled depending on the number of people in your household, and some make great leftovers 🙂 I’m going to start the morning with Peeps Pancakes and Hash Brown & Bacon Egg … Continue reading

One of our favorite dinners growing up was “Dad’s Pancakes” made from scratch and unbelievably fluffy. The pancakes were always served with what is now referred to as simple syrup, we referred to it all those years ago as sugar syrup. While I would like to tell you that I continue to make Dad’s recipe, my time does not allow that to be the case, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying pancakes for dinner! There are many good pancake mixes, I like a complete mix where all you have to do is add water, a quick and easy way to feed the family for dinner, add some “little sizzlers” or bacon with a giant glass of milk and your family will be very happy. That glass of milk can also help save BIG money at the gas pump as well. Save 10 cents per gallon of gas for EACH … Continue reading

When I was constructing the Menu plan for this week and testing some recipes I realized I needed some ingredients for the menu.  What a wonderful option to be able to go on line and place an order for groceries delivered on the same day. Our Festival Express Grocery Delivery service has received wonderful reviews give it a try! This week’s menu includes a Chicken Enchilada recipe from Rick at our White Bear store.  I love chicken enchiladas and best of all it is another recipe that you can use our rotisserie chicken if you don’t have time to cook the fresh chicken. One of our family’s favorite meals is on the menu this week,  it is Pork Medallions with Mustard-Chive Sauce. We like to serve this with baked potatoes at our house. The pork cooks quickly so this is a quick meal to put together. Have yourself a lazy … Continue reading
