The littlest chef


One of my favorites from allrecipes...

Fluffy Pancakes

3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
cooking spray

Directions:

Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".



Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.


Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.







definitely double this recipe-- mix it up and add things you like-- cinnamon, blueberries, chocolate chips! And don't worry about that "sour" part- there is definitely nothing sour about these pancakes!




I think she liked it :)

Spring breakers

We had some insanely warm weather the week of spring break so what better to do than pack up and head to the beach?




It was so nice...no crowds, no waiting in line, it felt like at times we had the whole place to ourselves.




Pigged out-- ate lots of goodies. Stopped at our favorite candy store...






Sat back and enjoyed the beautiful scenery...




The plan was to stay only one night but my **awesome** (you know who u are!) neighbor met up with us and took us out to lunch and told us we needed to stay longer.....at her beautiful oceanfront condo! She is the BEST! And its a good thing I packed clothes like a crazy lady! :)




Now we are back to the daily grind :( I am sooo ready to go back and play...





Summer hurry up and get here!!!!

Chicks


Kassie just cracks me up. I gave her a few chicks the other day and she was just squealing in delight over them! Holding them so gently and petting them so softly.



It almost made me want to run out and buy her real chicks! Almost....





Easter was crazy warm (still is now!!). Usually I don't even bother with the cute dresses because we just end up in tights and winter coats. Luckily this year I had a few cute things stashed away for the girls. They spent the whole entire day outside playing, blowing bubbles and of course a Easter egg hunt!




I think I hid some of those eggs too well.....we are still finding more today. :)
