pancakes and a 50th post giveaway!

For the last couple of mornings the girls have been asking for pancakes. Usually I have been able to make them happy by offering bread and peanut butter for breakfast, but today guess what? All the bread was gone! So I obliged and pancakes were made~

The pancakes turned out great. The girls and I used the recipe from the book Cooking is Fun. This book is totally great for kids and parents who want to make simple homemade delicious food. I love the vintage look of the book, which only adds to its charm. Actually the pancakes happen to be the second recipe that we have tried from this book. Just on Monday we made the Heirloom brownies (these were also totally good, especially with a cold cup of milk).

This is the 50th post on my little blog here, so I've decide to do something a little special. For a while now I been trying to organize my craft stuff- I have found some things that I think will do well in a new home, this includes:

~3 skeins of novelty yarn (purchased from Hobby Lobby)
~2 iron-on appliques (one floral, one an owl)
~1 needlepoint kit
~1 small bag of colorful tiny clothes pins
~1 card of vintage buttons
~1 small bag of vintage trim (purchased from thrift stores)

just leave a comment by Thursday evening (tomorrow night) and I'll draw a name by Friday lunchtime.

Have a good Wednesday!


  1. I could really go for some pancakes too!

  2. Oh the pancakes look great. My mom made some last week and she's mastered not having an ugly first pancake. I haven't mastered that yet....

    Please count me in on the giveaway! All the things look so good. I've been longing for trim lately. :-)

  3. Funny we had stale pancakes...........made pancakes using bisquick and who would have thought in my house something could last long enough to go bad well the blue berries I added where fresh and the organic syrup covered up the stale taste and we ate them anyway.

    I would love to be included in your 5oth post giveaway.

  4. It's been years since I had pancakes! I used to cook them when I was at University for my friends *wipes a tear away*. Your girls must have been delighted!

    I'd love to take part of your giveaway but it's ok if shipping to Europe it's not what you were planning. ;-)

  5. Wow great stack of pancakes! Wish I had the desire to cook/bake in the morning! I would love to be included in your giveaway! Thanks to Libby for the info!!

  6. yum yum!!! can I have one???

    Will you ship to Mexico in your giveaway??? I want in!
