Rolled Oat Pancakes
Rolled oats are a great way to satisfy hungry bellies on active days. Plus, they're great for digestion. Two of my boys are not big fans of oatmeal so sometimes it's a challenge to get them to eat a bowl of hearty oatmeal. These rolled oat pancakes are a hit at home; making it possible for them to get a good dose of oats. They have no idea how good those oats are for them and don't mind me disguising the oats in pancake form.
Lemon Buttermilk Twist
I must admit, I have quite an affinity for buttermilk. I love cooking with buttermilk because it can make some dishes richer and more wonderful. Lemons....well, lemons are like gold in cooking I think. It's hard to go wrong with giving a lot of dishes a lemon twist to take them from delicious to WOW. Lemon zest gives your cooking the most stand out lemon flavor without overpowering a dish or changing it's cooking results.
