February 28 is Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday. Every year we celebrate this day before Ash Wednesday so lather on the butter and syrup or nutella and whip cream and indulge. It is the Tuesday to eat these fatty foods because the next day starts the 40 days of Lent.

Celebrate with Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

cinnamon roll pancakes

I use a protein pancake mix we love and it is our Costco must-have for waffles and pancakes. But I began adding a bit of a twist after seeing a similar recipe in a video a while back.

While you make the batter, make a cinnamon filling in a separate bowl. You will want this ready before pouring the pancake batter onto the hot cooking surface you are cooking on.

Cinnamon filling

Cinnamon Filling: 6 TBSP butter, 1/2-3/4 C brown sugar and 1-2 TBSP of cinnamon to taste.

After you pour batter on pan, use the Whiskware Pancake Art Kit Bottle to drizzle cinnamon filling over batter on the side that’s up. When you flip to cook that size it will bake into the pancake for a light crunch of cinnamon (if you add the higher amount of brown sugar you get that nice mild crunch of sweetness). My son just adds butter but you can make a cream cheese frosting or syrup.

Whiskware BlenderBottles

I love having the Whiskware Pancake Art Kit because I have one batter blender bottle for the mix and a second smaller blender art bottle for the filling and it is so quick and easy to make these pancakes with no mess or accidentally pouring too much batter or filling.

Plus you can use the shapes included and use the cinnamon filling recipe above strategically to make even better pancake art-make eyes, lines with the filling. Visit Whiskware and find more great BlenderBottle and other kitchen products to make your kitchen life easier.

Easy Morning Meals with belVita Biscuits

belvita-biscuits-meal1

I have been on winter break and it is always a joy to have the youngest home with me. The older boys work and are in College so they are never home much anyway. However, it does make my morning schedule change a bit from what I am used to in getting work done. Besides Blogging I work part time at the High School so I am on break from my job when my son is out of school. On normal work daysI like easy morning meals with belVita Biscuits.

belVita Biscuits varieties are easily available in the cookie and cracker section at my local Walmart store. I love Walmart’s low prices and the belVita Biscuits are priced very well here.

I went looking for the new belVita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch biscuits but they aren’t out quite yet at my store. I am hoping that they will have them at the Walmart belVita sampling event on January 7th and 8th at my local stores and can stock up then. I am excited to try them.

On school and work mornings, I drive my son to school then come home where I have about 90 minutes before I leave for work. I shower and change then spend time having a quiet breakfast and catching up on emails and post shares for my blog. Eating belVita biscuits varieties gives me a few hours of sustained energy when I combine them with just 1 serving of milk and fruit. A cup of coffee finishes off my morning routine and off to work I go.

Bakery on Main New Hot Breakfast

Samples sent for feature

logo_glutenfree

The days and nights are getting colder and perhaps the cold cereal in the morning needs a warm touch. Bakery on Main has been bringing natural foods to us as they roll into specialty stores. Now there is a new hot, grain cereal. The two I have are the unsweetened varieties. They do have that grain taste to them and perhaps you don’t even need to sweeten on your own. I think the Quinoa Multigrain is great on it’s own and I did add honey (my so adds yogurt) to the Amaranth Multigrain. Honey is great at the cold and flu season anyhow so it’s a great way to get honey and grains in my day.

These varieties are oat-free and certified gluten-free. It is the hot cereal you love with the touch of grains. They make a great source of fiber, ALA Omega-3 and have 27.5 grams of whole grains.

Inside the box are individual packets. Simply tear open, add water and microwave. You can add some honey, fruit or other toppings as desired to give it the flavor you want.
