owl 2

owl  - pancake of the weekboiled egg, strawberry, muenster cheese, persimmon, cereal

Whooooooos eaten too much candy? This mama.

I closely monitor how much sugar my son consumes, but when it comes to me, I have little control and a passionate love for almond Snickers. And Twix. And then there’s Kit Kat. And…

Anyhow, I whipped up this owl sans squirt bottle and a few items in the fridge. Easy peasy. This is the second owl I’ve made and here is the first. Which one do you prefer?


pear, apple, cheerio, nutella

Happy Thanksgiving!


Apple and blueberry

Tips: One apple can go a long way in providing details if you use both the skin and the inside.

the evil crow

Blueberry evil eye, banana wings and tail, sausage link talons

Dedicated to the ginormous evil crow who perched on my shopping cart and searched through my grocery bags while I was busy buckling Avery into his car seat last Saturday morning. Avery laughed hysterically as he watched me waving my arms, swatting wildly at the bird who then perched on the hood of my car taunting me. Beware the Kroger birds lurking on the side of the building – they will hunt you.

Avery thought this little escapade to our greatest adventure yet, so naturally, a “crow” is what he requested once we got back from the store (we had run out of pancake mix).

Tips: Sausage links can be useful as thin elements protruding from the central pancake. Think little legs, claws & whiskers.


Apple beak, thin layer of nutella on head, dollop of yogurt and halved cherries for eyes

It’s no secret I have a fondness for these winged creatures.

Tips: This is one of the easiest pancakes to make since it’s simply layers of circular shapes.

angry bird

Dollop of banana yogurt and jumbo chocolate chips for eyes. Banana for beak. Eyebrows were cut out and coated with very thin layer of chocolate syrup for color.

An angry bird as requested. Is there a child in the world who doesn’t like these guys?

Tips: Bananas are multifunctional: cut them into circular discs for eyes or halve to use as noses or beaks.
