October is National Pretzel Month
I think you can put anything in a pancake. I mean, just look at the IHOP menu.
- cupcake pancakes
- double blueberry pancakes
- chocolate chip pancakes
- strawberry banana pancakes
- Mexican tres leches pancakes
- German chocolate pancakes
- vanilla spice pancakes
- New York cheesecake pancakes
…and that is just at IHOP. At the right restaurants, you can buy pancakes with apples, lemon and poppy seeds, cherries, peaches, pumpkin, and anything else you imagine. Pancakes are so versatile that you can include everything (except the kitchen sink).
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup mix-ins (I used pretzels, peanuts, raisins, and chocolate candies)
- Combine oat flour, yogurt, milk, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix well.
- Fold in your choice of “mix-ins.”
- Lightly spray a griddle with nonstick spray. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto the griddle. Let cook on one side until bubbles begin to form on the surface of the batter. Flip and continue to cook 2-3 minutes, until a spatula easily slides under the pancake. Transfer to a plate.
- Eat and enjoy!
P.S. I am linking up with Angie and her cohosts Antonia @ Zoale.com and Laurena @ Life Diet Health for Fiesta Friday.
September is National Honey Month
There’s a lot I could say about these muffins.
I could mention that Super Squirrely was the first Blind Spot Nutbutter flavor that I tried (back in 2016).
August 31 is National Trail Mix Day
I’ll probably spend National Trail Mix Day (Friday) at work (like most of you, I assume).
Happy National Eat a Peach Day!
English majors see symbolism everywhere.
Milk symbolizes abundance. Seeds symbolize life. Peaches symbolize youth. Tea symbolizes peace.
I can’t promise you an abundant life of youth and peace, but I can promise you a good breakfast.
- 1 peach, diced
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 cup peach tea, cooled
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- Combine 1/2 peach, chia seeds, tea, and milk in a sealable container. Seal, shake, and chill overnight.
- In the morning, add remaining 1/2 peach
- Eat and enjoy!

When I was about ten years old, my best friend’s grandma taught me how to make grilled cheese. I am sure I had made grilled cheese before then, but she taught me the proper steps.
- Butter the pan, not the bread.
- Heat the pan.
- Completely assemble the sandwich before placing it in the warm pan.
- Cook two to three minutes, and use the back of a spatula to smash the sandwich. This is key. I am not sure why, but it is highly important.
- Flip the sandwich and smash again.
- Toss the sandwich onto a plate, and cut it in half.
- Eat it!
August is National Sandwich Month
August 2 is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love ice cream?
June 29 is National Waffle Iron Day!
Although it was not my intention, it has been the year of weird ingredients. January started with oatmeal-coated chicken, and February progressed to chocolate hummus. You were skeptical about my powdered-peanut-frosting, and now I bring you something even more unusual.
