Know what tomorrow is? Pancake Tuesday, maybe one of my favorite dinners of the year!

I can’t make pancakes to save my life, but I try every year. Experimenting with different recipes, changing cooking methods, nothing’s worked so far.

Last year I had quite the fiasco. Honestly, I don’t remember the pancakes. I guess they were good (or gasp! maybe we used a mix last year! – don’t tell 😉 ) The real story starts after dinner. I came back to the kitchen and the electric griddle’s leg was sizzling away on the front eye of the stove!

Believe me when I say this is not like me at all. Yes, I’m a real klutz, but when it comes to safety (locking the doors, making sure the oven’s off,) I’m really careful – like OCD careful.

So, what happened was, after everything cooked – the pancakes and Field Roast Sausages, I put the griddle on the hot, but off, eye, and didn’t think about it again – until the smell of burning rubber emanated the kitchen!

This year I guess I’ll be pancaking with a three legged griddle. Wish me luck!

Something else I thought I’d never be able to make – sugar cookies! Probably last year, I finally got it.

These specific cookies were created thanks to leftover birthday frosting and a dream to pipe pretty designs on cookies.

  1. Oh gosh – I know that feeling. Last week’s casualty was a wooden spoon that I left resting on the side of an enamel pot – now it has a lovely char mark on it. One of those fudge filled cookies would definitely cheer me up! 🙂

  2. Pancake Tuesday sounds so good! I’m the worst at flipping pancakes, so I buy those silo cone circles where you can just pour the batter right in…such a lifesaver! These cookies look gorgeous, Megan! I love the fudge filling! Yum!

    • I’ll have to look into one of those. My trouble is I can’t get the griddle the right temp – it’s either too hot or not hot enough (I even use the dancing water technique!) – that means lots of burned and undercooked pancakes 🙁 Thank you, Gayle!

  3. I had no idea pancake Tuesday was a thing. Taco Tuesday, yes. Pancake, no. But now I have to celebrate! Breakfast for dinner coming up, y’all!
    These are so gorgeous. Love the heart in the middle!

    • It goes by lots of different names, Mir – Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras – whatever you call it – it’s the perfect excuse to overindulge 😉 Thank you!

  4. LOVE having breakfast for dinner! I’m not too bad at making pancakes, but I’m THE WORST at making chocolate chip cookies. I don’t know what it is, maybe I’m just being a perfectionist, but I’m never happy with my own! These cookies are ridiculously adorable though and I love that you use cashew milk in the cookies and the frosting, I need to try that! I need these cookies in my life 😉

  5. My kids love pancakes but I’m not a fan of flipping them too. I am a fan of these sugar cookies though. They look amazing! I love the pretty heart and the fudge filling sounds perfect!

    • Thanks so much, Kelly! Last night I found a pancake tip – wait until the cakes look completely dry and then flip 🙂

    • I did enjoy, Pancake Tuesday, Jessica! On my last batch, I figured out part of my problem – I’m flipping, too soon! They need to look pretty dry before flipping. Thanks for visiting 🙂

  6. These look so pretty, great photos!!
    I’m totally like that too, a lil OCD with locking the doors and making sure the stove is off (BF always makes fun of me), but then i’ll go and accidentally melt a rubber spatula into the frying pan, or use wax paper instead of parchment paper and only notice when my oven fills up with smoke! Lol

  7. Kitchen catastrophes are the worst! One of my more recent blunders happened when I grabbed my sautee pan’s handle with my bare hand after I had it in a hot oven for 20 minutes baking meatballs 🙁 ouch. On the bright side, these cookies look super cute! I hope you get the hang of pancakes–they’re one of my favorite things to make for weekend breakfasts. I usually wait until the batter has bubbled a bit and then scoop them up and flip them. Practice makes perfect!

    • Oh no, Jessica! I’ve done that, too, & it’s no fun 🙁 & I think with a little more practice I will get the hang of pancakes. Thank you!
