As a recovering OCD mom, I've learned how to let go a little and enjoy having my kids help in the kitchen.  Of course there are times when all 3 of them are arguing over who gets to add which ingredient, or who gets to stir. And every single time, there is a little extra flour or other cooking ingredient spread across the counter (or floor), but thats all a part of their learning experience, right ?  I actually do still cringe a little on the inside when I see every single measuring tool or bowl being used, or when the mess seems to have reached the living room, but I have to say that my kids LOVE being in the kitchen and in the end, that is well worth it!

 

Banana Corn Pancake

Rarely is there a morning that I don't have to wake up early and get ready to be somewhere. But today, was one of those rare days and it was AWESOME!

Most days, I'm up by 6, making sure my oldest is awake and getting ready for school. Then by the time he leaves, my other 2 are waking and it starts all over again. On the weekends, its all about waking up early and getting my daughter off to tumbling and then Sunday mornings is filled with getting ready and going to church. But this week,,,,,,well I had today off simply because I went to church last night!

It was a pj wearing, pancake making, don't do your hair at all kinda of day (well, at least it was for the kids).

If you are like me, I can get this craving for something sweet, however, I tend to go for fruity and light, especially during the warmer seasons.   Thankfully I have a ton of cookbooks to pull from and as I went looking for what would make,  I found this recipe for Banana Blueberry Cake in Chloe's Vegan Desserts cookbook and I had to give it a whirl.
