Cranberry Pancakes

Such a beautiful Sunday morning here, in S. Florida. Windy, mostly sunny, and 74 degrees F. which actually feels like in the low 60's...always about ten or more degrees cooler on the beach! A perfect time to make pancakes from scratch, especially when you still have a couple bags of fresh cranberries that you put in your freezer from last December...better use them up, although you can keep them in the freezer for at least 1 year! I always use my 'tried and true' Mark Bittman's Basic Pancake recipe, but this time I followed the Better Homes and Gardens, which has the addition of fresh orange juice as well. A good way to start your morning, on a lazy Sunday!
I have absolutely no clue, how many points these yummy pancakes are for Weight Watchers, but I quit temporarily again...for the third time, not easy to keep up with the points. You have to be really diligent to stay with the program!
Close up, you can see the beautiful ruby red chopped fresh cranberries, nestled in…

Kodiak Cakes...Pancakes

I hope all you wonderful Moms had a lovely Mother's Day! These delicious pancakes were not for Mother's Day; I made them previously, last week, to be exact! A Canadian friend suggested this unusual, super moist, totally natural ingredients...no need to add eggs, or milk, so easy, that I splurged a little, adding fresh strawberries to top it off, and a little decoration with Ready Whip whipped cream...the best pancakes I've ever had from a box mix!
I never even knew about these amazing pancakes...or 'Flapjacks' as they call them, until I was introduced to it, and can only find them at Target! It's been around for a long time, but there is a 'success story' behind it. If any of you have watched Shark Tank...which I sometimes have watched, but missed this one...here's the story behind it!

Chocolate Pancakes...and a Guest Post

So far, since I've been blogging, for about 1 year and a few months, I have not picked up even the concept, about guest posting for someone, until now. This will be my actual second guest post, and I'm all excited about it!
This is not just a guest post, but THE guest post for my special friend, Swathi, who I've had the pleasure to meet through our blogs, since a year ago. We've been staying in touch through e-mail occasionally, since that time, keeping each other posted with our lives.

I am so thrilled, and honored to accept the invitation from my dear friend Swathi, who is the author of
Zesty South Indian Kitchen, and one of the host @ Hearth and Soul, Tuesday Blog Hop. Her blog is so beautiful and exquisite with true South Indian cuisine, and the most amazing yeast breads, that I cannot compete with, so I decided to post something simple, and American, that we can all relate to, is "pancakes."

Not just any old pancakes, but made with your own homemade bakin…
