Pecan Oat Pancakes – fluffy pancakes filled with pecans and oats! Delicious, hearty breakfast recipe! 

Hi guys, I made pancakes.

I don’t make pancakes. I haaaaate making pancakes.

I can’t make a decent pancake to save my life.

I would rather stand at the waffle maker all morning, making one waffle at a time, than even attempt to make pancakes.

But you guys, look at my pancakes!

Aren’t they beautiful?!

I made so many batches of pancakes last weekend and I think I’ve finally got it down.

This all started because I took my kids to IHOP last week when it wouldn’t stop raining and it was super depressing and the best way to eat your feelings is with a funny face pancake. I’ve had pancakes on the brain since then.

Peach Blueberry Crisp - quick and easy summer dessert! Fresh peaches and blueberries with a crunchy topping!

Hiiii guys, happy Monday!

How was the weekend? Mine was fantastic. The boys were gone with their dad and I had every intention of working all weekend and taking the husky for a forever long hike buuuuut that didn’t work out. I did, however, have this Peach Blueberry Crisp to pick at while I caught up on everything last night so it wasn’t too bad.

S'mores Granola - eat your s'mores with a spoon! Crunchy granola with chocolate chunks, mini marshmallows, and Golden Grahams cereal!

Last day of S’mores Week!

I’m sad. Are you sad?

Don’t worry, Nicole and I have something very exciting coming up soon! Really soon.

Like, this weekend if we get our you-know-what together in time.

Spoiler: it involves me having an awkward conversation with a Target cashier at 9 pm last night about why I needed so many marshmallows and a jar of caramel sauce.

No Bake Granola Bars - perfect for kids or adults!

The end of school is probably not the best time to be sharing a No Bake Granola Bars recipe, huh?

My kids have been loving these in their lunch boxes but they’ll be perfect for throwing in my pool bag or whatever, too. 

Anyway, my kid totally pulled one over on me yesterday. He’d been sick over the weekend. Like, not super sick but he had a cough and he basically slept from Thursday night to Sunday afternoon. So yesterday morning when he woke up and said he didn’t feel better, I let him stay home.

An hour later: “Mom! I feel so much better! Can I play Playstation?!” 

Uh huh. 

And lucky for him I was waiting for the guy to come fix our fence and didn’t want to risk leaving and and missing the appointment so he got to stay home. 

I feel like a sucker. 

If your kids aren’t jerks like mine, you should definitely make these for them. Y’all know I can’t control myself around granola bars and these were no exception.

Sweet Potato Pie with Streusel Topping

There are few things in life that I love more than a pie with a streusel topping made of rolled oats.

I feel like I mention at least once a week that I really, really hate making pie. The crust. It’s just too fussy for me. And then there are those stressful moments where I’m positioned in front of the oven trying to catch it between when it’s undercooked and too jiggly and overcooked with burnt  crust.

Pie is just too stressful for me.

But pie is SO GOOD and you can’t do the holidays without it, right? Plus that list of pies my husband wants gets longer everyday.

I picked up the special winter packaging of Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats that’s exclusive to Target (it’s limited edition so keep an eye out!) and wanted to make a fabulous and easy pie with them. 

I’m super traditional when it comes to pie for the holidays. I like pecan, pumpkin, and sweet potato. That’s it. So I made a super simple, but absolutely delicious sweet potato pie.

The pie starts with a store-bought crust and I don’t care what anyone says, I think they’re just as good as anything I’d make from scratch. Then a simple sweet potato mixture (I just diced my sweet potatoes and boiled them like I was making mashed potatoes – beat them with my stand mixer until they were smooth and added the rest of the ingredients) and then topped with the oat mixture. 

It turned out perfectly. Super soft filling with a crunchy topping. Just how I like my pie!

Make sure you print the Quaker Oats coupons on the Target website and then head to Target to #QuakerUp with the limited edition winter packaging of Quaker Oats and let me know what you think of #MyOatsCreation.
