mother's day pancakes

Even though it is a bit late I wanted to brag on my husband for a minute:) For Mother's Day he and the boys made me breakfast. My choice. I chose a new pancake recipe that actually required a bit more effort than just opening a box and adding water. And it was worth it. NOT only did he make them BUT he did it with the kids (if you have ever cooked with a 2 and a 4 year old you know how painful this can be:) The results were absolutely delicious and the memories priceless.

We first started out with Starbucks after Mass.
