Interesting But Amazing!

A slice of delight! This idea hit me upside the back of my head! I really don't know where it came from at first. But, once it lodged itself there there was nothing else for me to do....but put my idea into action! I had a few apples that were on the way to death row. So I used those to soak them in RUM!!!!! I actually forgot about them in the back of my fridge you know. Which is why they ended up being soaked for a little over a week! As well as the little well known fact that i'm a lazy ass! Hahahaha!

So finally after making the time to make this cake everyone who has tried it, including myself, have agreed on one thing!

It's INTERESTING, in an amazing way!!!!!

Once you make and try it you will really understand what we all mean by this!
Happy Baking!!!!!

A beautiful Saturday Morning!

Good Morning my dear wonderful readers!

I Have returned in force to blogging to you about all sorts of delicious wonderful things! My wonderful hubby bought my a new tablet which allow me to blog from work.....which I am doing now! It's quite wonderful to be able to think without two little kiddos climbing all over me or trying to help me type! Speaking of them!!!! That is actually what todays entry is about!

I now have two picky eaters. meh. Hahaha! I guess it's what I get for being a picky eater when I was younger! Ah well! Moving on!

One of the things that they will both eat are PANCAKES!!!

Makes my life super easy. I did think to myself that eating them the same way can be rather boring. As did my hubbs! So we have been trying new flavors and different brands. A few simple ideas!

Plain pancake mix.
1. caramel syrup
2. fruit added into the actual batter
3.powdered sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top
4. use liquer instead of milk or water...such as bailey's or fulton's pumpkin pie
5. different flavored coffee creamers instead of milk or water.
6. pour some Crown Maple whiskey over them!!!!!
7. chocolate chips in the batter!

Don't be scared to try new flavors! Blueberry, Apple Oatmeal, Plain and whatever else you might find out there! Life is an adventure! Take it by the reins and go gun ho with it!
