Who wants pancakes?
Everyone loves pancakes, at least in my family! You can never get tired of pancakes.
I’ve gotten use to making different pancakes because the little man doesn’t like eggs. He used to love eggs but all of a sudden he stopped eating them. He won’t even touch anything that is make of eggs, no quiche, no omelets, no egg baskets. It limits breakfast options for him a little but I’ve gotten creative with parfaits, waffles and pancakes. Hubby is especially happy about my pancake experiments.
I told you that you will be seeing a lot of key lime recipes from me. I have an awesome milkshake coming up on Kelly’s site at livelaughrowe.com and delicious cookies coming up on Carolyn’s site at carolynshomework.blogspot.com. Stay tuned because they are all coming soon!
I still have a few more key limes to use up. You just never know what I will come up with! If you have any requests, feel free to leave a comment.
