These pancakes are such a fun treat for adults and kids alike. Noah can’t stand waiting for them and so he helps me each step of the way to stay distracted. Mommy’s lemon squeezer is the best toy in the land so when he gets a chance he is the official lemon squeezer.

Saturday mornings are the best day of the week. Usually because daddy gets up and tackles breakfast while mommy watches and sips coffee and talks to him. And sometimes…I even clean the kitchen up too.

I try to explain to Kevin that he can only have so many great qualities in a wife…beautiful, good cook, funny, great photo taker-er. All that and keeping the house clean might just…you know…be asking too much.

But let’s be honest. All that Bob’s Red Mill Flour did NOT make it into the bowl. And a 3 year old and lemon juice? Well…I’m not sure I could ever mop the floors frequently enough to keep up with these two.

One of these days I will keep the house perfectly clean. But that day may be the day both our children move out.

Until then…I plan on keeping on with making too many dishes, chasing my babies and whipping around my house like tasmanian devil when I have the time to clean it all up.

Vanilla Syrup

This syrup is sweet, buttery and a fun mix up from regular maple syrup! You can totally add more lemon if that's your thing too!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup salted butter
  • 1/2 cup syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  • 1. Place butter, syrup and milk in a medium-sized pot (it will fizz up so you need a bigger pot than just the ingredients warrant).
    2. Heat over medium heat stirring, until butter melts. Bring to a boil and boil one minute.
    3. Remove from heat and add vanilla, lemon juice and finally baking soda. It will fizz up, continue to stir it for a few moments and let it sit for a moment to reduce the bubbles before serving.
