So I guess I didn’t realize it until today, but we really looooove breakfast in our house! The kids and I, that is. When Kevin is long gone for work we whip up pancakes, french toast, crepes, frittatas, bacon, sausage, and all the fixings.


Today was a snowy morning and we needed the comforts of a sweet and delicious breakfast to get us moving. Our Winter WarmUp Breakfast of choice? Banana Bread Pancakes! They warmed our bellies and made us smile! Try them!
