Healthy Pumpkin & Oatmeal Spider Web Pancakes


Happy Halloween! We have been baking a lot lately- mostly with a favorite holiday ingredient, pumpkin! On my list was pumpkin pancakes to make for Halloween morning.

I made these ahead of time so they would be ready to quickly heat up in the morning or pack in lunches for the day. These make your house smell so much like fall!

For the spider web d├ęcor, just grab chocolate syrup and swirl it in three circles. Using a toothpick, spread the circles outward to create a web. It is best to do this after your pancake is cooked while it is fresh off the stove top and still warm so that the chocolate absorbs into the pancake.


Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

Wednesday, October 29, 2014


Growing up in the 80's most of our dinners revolved around canned cream of "anything". Canned cream of mushroom soup, canned cream of celery soup, canned cream of chicken seemed to be the main ingredient into most of my favorite meals. And really, once I made the "canned cream of goodness" at home, it was surprisingly simple, healthy and lower in sodium, fat and made with no GMO.


For mini pies, I used disposable aluminum containers. I used the plastic tops of them to cut out the size of my pie crust topping.
