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.

Hi guys!

How’s the week going? What’d ya do last weekend?

We went out to the lake and had the best time. I’m obsessed with all things outdoors right now and thankfully, the tiny people I live with don’t seem to mind. We’ve hiked every trail in the area, swam in every lake, and I’m forever looking for new places to explore.

I’m already excited to spend every weekend for the rest of summer down at the lake.

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.
