Gingerbread Cookie Pancakes & Some News


You know when you have that friend that goes out and finds herself a boyfriend and then totally ignores all of her friends after that?

Well, I am totally guilty of being THAT girl for the past few days!

The REAL question is…how much did you guys miss me??

But no seriously, I guess since I went “Facebook public” with it the other day, I guess it’s the perfect time to introduce to you guys who’s responsible for whisking me away from the blog the last few days.

*I promise he’s not another nut butter*! 😉

I shall call him Broccoli Rabe Babe 😉

Sorry ladies, but sadly BB doesn’t have any brothers 😉

And just in time for Pancake Sunday, I walked into the kitchen this morning with motivation to make some pancakes for my vegetable-lovin’ man.

But not just any pancakes…

With the weather getting colder, and the neighborhood full of houses decked with icicle lights, I knew it was time for a good solid recipe that screamed Christmas!
