Food for Fun: 4th of July Pancakes!
4th of July is quickly approaching and if you know me, you know I love to have festive food! This is one of my favorite holidays and this 4th of July pancakes recipe is so easy and makes the day super special. My kids look forward to these every year – the sparklers are hard to forget! The best part of this recipe….it’s from a box! I’ve made homemade pancakes so many times but when adding food coloring, I prefer to use box mix.
