Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day

What a week… I can’t believe that a week ago I buried my mom, and tomorrow it’s Mother’s day. It’s been such a rough week, but I have so many of you to thank for the sweet messages, notes, emails, calls, flowers, comments, lunches, etc. I am trying to pick myself up every day and move forward, and this blog is one great way to push me to do that. I thought I would share a super simple recipe for Blueberry Pancakes for Mother’s Day or any day since my mom always loved Mother’s Day brunches and who doesn’t love pancakes and blueberries?

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful, wonderful, giving moms out there. For those of you who still have a mom, give her a big hug today! All the best, Alison

Weekend Pancakes with a Twist: Pomegranate Ricotta Pancakes with Pomegranate Syrup

IMG_2714

Making pancakes on the weekend is one of my favorite things to do with the kids. This recipe is really special because it includes ricotta cheese as well as pomegranates and pomegranate juice. It is a recipe I came up for POM, and it’s really wonderful. Since pomegranate season is about over, try substituting blueberries for the pomegranates in the pancakes.

My daughter, Leigh, loves to make pancakes, and we make saturday. These Blueberry Pancakes are delicious and are at the top of the list. They’re so easy and are as good as they look.

Pecan Waffles

For breakfast this weekend, I am making Pecan Waffles. My daughter, Leigh, is away at camp, and I miss her so much! She is the one in the family always wanting to make waffles. She pulls out the waffle iron and makes the batter on her own (she even made them on live television). I don’t always use the powdered sugar and butter, but maple syrup is almost all you need with this delicious recipe (and Leigh wouldn’t have it any other way).
