Simple Hootenanny or German Pancakes

Hootenanny Pancakes These easy pancakes are called Hootenanny, German, Growing Pancakes or honestly whatever you want to call them. But my new name is Easy Blender Pancakes On Sunday I was starting to make homemade biscuits when my 7 year old came in and requested pancakes instead! If you could see my little boys face you would pretty much do whatever he says! He is a little dreamboat I tell you. He also wanted to help make them. I had been wanting to make these pancakes for my family for a while and when I realized it was throw stuff …

Peanut Butter and Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Peanut Butter and Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal

My youngest son is obsessed with oatmeal. It is always his favorite food on the questionaries that they do at school. Maple & Brown Sugar is his fav! The only problem with oatmeal each morning is that it takes a little longer on busy before school mornings. He is also my child who is very particular! If something is too hot, too cold, too spicy, or too sweet he will have nothing to do with it! When I discovered this oatmeal I was surprised and ecstatic! And I love steel cut oats more then any other type of oatmeal! So …

One of my favorite things about my food blog is creating new unique recipes using products that my family loves. That is why I always have so much fun creating recipes for Krusteaz.

I just loved it and had it for breakfast the few days after that. You can omit the veggies or throw them …
