old-fashioned pancakes

There really is nothing better than cooking something your entire family enjoys.  It fills up my heart to hear a cheer, see a fist pump, or note an under-the-breath "Yes!" when I announce the meal we're having.  Such is the case every time I tell the boys we're having pancakes.  All three of them!  

I have tried numerous pancake recipes.  Numerous, I tell you.  But some have been too thick, some too tough, some with no taste whatsoever.  It's like a page out of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  Thankfully, I have found the one that is just right.

This recipe is quick and easy and no-fail.  It's been my go-to for several months.  Sometimes we toss in a few chocolate chips or berries.  My favorite add-in combo is cinnamon and pecans.  It's really fun to experiment!  Do you have a favorite variety?

Saturdays are made for PJs and coffee, pancakes and syrup, and - of course - bacon, if you're in the Green household.  Wishing you and yours a lovely weekend!
