Quinoa whole wheat pancakes made with greek yogurt. A healthy pancake option!I love quinoa. We thought these were pretty good. Served w/ choice of real maple syrup, black berries, walnuts, bananas and peanut butter for topping.Even the 10 yr old approved!
Pancake Pops - bite-sized pancakes on a stick. Dip them in maple syrup and have a little breakfast party. Fun for a play group brunch.
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we did when we created them.
BEST PANCAKES EVER recipe ~ They are super tall, light and fluffy and yet they don't get all mushy when syrup is added, they are excellent!
"The Most Common Cooking Mistakes: I wasn't going to read them, but when I did, half of these tips I did not know!!"
What a cool idea.....mini pancake skewers....just stack mini pancakes (Eggo makes minis), add a blueberry or strawberry and put on skewer and drizzle maple syrup over them. Perfect.
pumpkin pancakes. I used almond milk & they were still delicious. I added a little extra milk to thin the batter a bit. This recipe made about 14 pancakes. I topped with candied pecans & powdered sugar.
Blueberry-Oatmeal Smoothie --- this smoothie is DELICIOUS! Had to add a little water in it because I did two bananas and it was really thick. Also added flax, chia and a blueberry muffin yogurt. But SO YUMMY!
Baked Pancakes from SixSistersStuff.com. I made these, cut into squares, and froze them for busy mornings when we needed a good breakfast! #pancakes
SOUTHWEST PULLED CHICKEN  --- It was delicious, I added black beans & so glad I did, we ate ours with a bed of rice, lettuce,
A display we did with our youth group (7 - 11 yr olds) when we were looking at the story of Joseph and the coat of many colors. each quarter was made up of 6 puzzle pieces (so 24 in total). kids painted them individually and they were then stuck together. thinking was meant to be the dreams were a bit of a puzzle without God enabling Joseph to interpret them
Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter | "This was delicious, and the fish was like butter. We did add a little salt and pepper at the table, and I might try seasoning with red pepper before cooking. But, overall, fantastic."
It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together - and I knew it.
Annotating Text - This is a good reading strategy to teach when you want them to 'dig' into the passage. We use this strategy quite a bit

X-Ray Craft I drew a skeleton with white crayon on white card stock during "Xx" week, because all there is to talk about is x-rays and xylophones. Anyhow, I did 22 of those (OW!), then we had the kids do watercolors. Ours struggled a bit with the right ratio of water--too much and the color wasn't bright enough, to little and it covered up the crayon. But it was very cute to hear them get excited when they could see their bones!
Lisa and David - Our photographers suggested we incorporate the sparklers and we are so glad that we did! They really added a "punch" to our night time pictures, and we were able to use them during our send away as well. - Limelight Photo Works
Tuscan Chicken Skillet - the perfect one-pan meal that's a delicious mix of chicken, white beans, tomatoes and herbs. We actually added two cans of beans and this dish went a long way. The sauce thickens with the beans cooking down in the tomatoes, and tastes delicious with crusty bread. Loved this dish.
Smoked Salmon Bisque - this was delicious. we had canned smoke salmon from friends in Alaska. added potatoes, used Veg broth instead of clam juice, fresh chopped tomatoes instead of canned. About doubled the amt of smoked salmon but did not use salmon filet. Also added extra spice. YUM.
Pork shanks - a delicious and less-costly alternative to veal shanks. This is probably how we would cook them--shallow pan in a very rich cooking liquid that includes wine or vinegar.
Busy Mom Puffins (Pancake Muffins) (my recipe adapted from these crazy blog moms who make them from scratch) Preheat oven to 350, mix 1 c pancake mix, 2/3 c water, 1/2 c syrup. Mix together, pour in greased muffin pan. Top with banana, blueberries, chocolate chips, pecans, sausage, bacon....etc. Bake for 12-14 minutes and serve. Easy, fast, delicious & no syrupy mess!!
Simple Asian Soy-Peanut Noodles - we have made these TWICE this week - we can't get enough of them! The original recipe was a little too salty for me so we added extra honey and peanut butter ... SO Delicious!!

I ❤ crazy quilting, beading & embroidery . . . Tarnished Gold- The center fabric print has just the faintest hint of a lavender. I had added some tiny clear lavender flower beads to the silkie when I was embellishing it. I added the same lavender beads along the lace in the upper right then I took them & added them in the rose motif to bring the eye around & back down to the silkie. I also added a similar bead that is a champagne color to the
Clean Eating Taco Seasoning- Really liked this. So much better than the packets and not all the junk in them. I made no changes and used the entire amount with 1 lb of beef. I did it just like with a pack, added it with a bit of water after the meat was cooked. It's a wee bit spicy, so cut down on the cayenne if your fam doesn't like heat.
Poopie diaper #babyshowergame. Cut out diapers from white felt and safety pin together. Smear one or two with a little bit of chocolate (I used nutella). Pass them out for guests to wear when they arrive. Have them check the diaper right before they leave. Whoever has "soiled" diaper wins a prize.
