Banana Pancakes {paleo, GF}


I have vivid memories of pancakes from my childhood. I grew up eating pancakes. My mom and grandma both made a fantastic buttermilk pancake but they always turned out sort of flat. The vivid memories of flavored pancakes take me back to sleepovers I had as a child. For about a year or so, I…

Delicata Squash Pancakes {paleo, GF}


I’m a pancake girl. I always have been. So delighted was I to discover you can make healthier pancakes that are grain free and guilt free too. I played around with a recipe to find a good base for starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes and pumpkin. When I saw that people were making pancakes…

Grain Free Dutch Baby Pancake


Let’s talk about pears for a minute. I’m very particular about them. I only like them when they are green and crunchy – like an apple – and I’m particular to the Bartlett kind, I pass on any other. So when I realized that I had a ripe pear in my refrigerator (the horror!) I…

Sweet Potato Pancakes {paleo, GF}


There are all these weird grain free pancake recipes floating around the Internet. I cannot even conceive how the ingredients make a pancake. So that’s why I am ecstatic to bring you the below recipe. It not only looks like a fairly normal-isn pancake recipe, it also produces a normal pancake. Sometimes when you are…

Greek Yogurt Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes


If you’ve seen a lot of banana posts recently it’s because I have bananas that I need to get rid of before they totally spoil. After making some cookies, I was toiling with what other dishes I could make to use up the four bananas sitting on my counter. The obvious banana bread/muffins came to…

Pumpkin Pancakes {paleo, GF}


Updated 11/19/2017 I previously wrote: So I’m going to warn you that this is not the most technically sound recipe for pancakes. I based this recipe off of one that is vastly different than mine only because when I tried following the recipe it just didn’t make sense. So I kept adding things until I…

Cauliflower Fritters


Every time I buy cauliflower (or rather cauliflower rice these days) I get grandiose thoughts of doing something cool with it and then sort of forget that the cauliflower is even in my refrigerator. I guess I must not find cauliflower all that exciting when you get right down to it or I wouldn’t procrastinate…

Low-Carb Pancakes


A few weeks ago I bought a low-carb baking mix from Bob’s Red Mill thinking it would be a disappointment. The terms “low-carb” and “pancakes” have never really jived with me. I’d always assumed if you ate a low-carb lifestyle you were destined for a life of eggs, bacon, cheese, red meat and high cholesterol. I…

Almond Flour Buttermilk Pancakes


I have always, always, always wanted to try almond flour pancakes but have been a bit scared to do so afraid they would be nothing like the buttermilk pancakes that my mom made on weekends when I was growing up. As is, I’m always a bit leery of gluten-free recipes because any that I’ve tried…

Big, Thick and Hearty Two-Ingredient Low-Carb Pancakes {gluten-free}


I’m one week into my New Year’s “diet” and less than successful having lost -.2 pounds (if you understood what I said there that means I actually gained .2 pounds this week). I mean who wants to restrict what they eat only to gain weight? But let’s not focus on that. I’ve discussed my “diet” extensively…

Light, Fluffy Pancakes


I spent almost $400 unexpectedly this past week between a routine vet visit and a cavity filling. (Having not gone to the dentist for the last 7 or 8 years, I was happy to only have one cavity and no advanced periodontal disease. In case you’re wondering how one goes 7 or 8 years without…

Old-Fashioned Fluffy Pancakes


I made these pancakes last weekend when I was on the Oregon Coast with my sister. Unfortunately, I was in the midst of a histamine coma from an asthma attack and my taste buds were pretty much non-existent. My sister said the pancakes were great. I’m not sure I would add as much cinnamon next…

Puffy Vegan Pancakes


My dad’s in town through Thanksgiving-ish, which means I automatically kick up the frequency of my cooking. Impressed with the vegan Oat and Quinoa Pancakes I made last weekend, we decided to try plain vegan pancakes this weekend. I found these pancakes on Alicia Silverstone’s website, The Kind Life. This is the easiest pancake recipe…

Oat and Quinoa Pancakes {vegan}


The other day my mostly vegan friend Julie asked me if I had ever made an eggless oatmeal pancake. The answer was no. I’m never really prompted to eat vegan food on my own. I normally need to be inspired by Julie or vegan food bloggers before I take the plunge into a vegan meal….

Raspberry Pancakes


It’s been a raspberry weekend in my house. This morning I decided to make some pancakes using leftover raspberry guts. Leftover raspberry guts? Yeah, I know. Sounds gross. I made some raspberry juice to add to buttercream frosting and in order to make raspberry juice you need to cook 2 cups of raspberries with sugar…

German Apple Pancake


This recipe is courtesy of Karl Ratzsch’s Chef (or one-time Chef, I suppose), Michael Dreazy, clipped from the newspaper and sent to me by my grandma. Karl Ratzsch’s is a Milwaukee-famous German-American restaurant I’ve actually never been to – even though I spent the first 29 years of my life living in the Milwaukee, Wis. area….

Baked Dutch Baby


Last night my coworker came over for wine, guacamole and gossip. When I showed her a picture of what I’d made for breakfast, she immediately exclaimed, “You made a Baked Dutch Baby this morning?! I love those!” And instantly I felt like I was in the culinary slow group for people who aren’t very worldly…

Giant Baked Pancake Puff for One


Almost exactly two years ago when my mom was in town visiting I made a Finnish Pancake, which was less of a pancake and more like custard pie to me. I wasn’t overly thrilled by it. Rooting through my overflow of clipped out recipes sent to me by my grandma, I found a recipe for…

Multigrain Granola Panakes


Lately I’ve been into eating granola with almond milk. I had that yesterday for breakfast instead of my normal weekend pancakes. And to be honest, although I do like me some granola, I felt a little jipped. I love having pancakes on the weekend! Still wanting granola again this morning, yet not wanting to forego…

Yeasted Pancakes


It always shocks me when I’m out for breakfast and see that the menu does not offer any sort of pancake option. There’s this really popular diner right up the street from my house (it almost always has a line on Saturday and Sunday mornings) that does not offer any pancake option. Quite frustrating for…
