Breakfast Popsicles

Here is to another easy breakfast that can be modified to your liking. Breakfast popsicles! I first learned about these on Facebook and I thought what a brilliant idea.

Oatmeal Bake

Things are getting a little busier especially if you have returned to school or work. You might find that there isn’t much time to prepare and get ready. Making breakfast for yourself or your little ones can be a challenge too. I am still trying new things out to see what little C likes to…

Fluffy Pancakes with Sugared Bananas

The weekends are my favourite because I get to wake up and make pancakes. These pancakes do take a bit of time but it is worth the extra effort. Prepare this pancake mix by measuring out the dry ingredients. In a bowl, mix together 3/4 cup of flour, 2 Tbsp of powdered sugar and 1…

Smiley Face Pancakes with Cranberry Sauce!
