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!
Gingerbread Cookie Pancakes

I swear the Christmas sprinkles just APPEARED after I plated these plump cakes of gingery goodness!
And then some crazy penguins showed up…
As you can see, we had plenty of cakes to have a party! 😉
Fa la la la la….la la la laaaaaaaaaa!

Are you finished with your Christmas shopping or are you like me and haven’t even started?…please tell me I’m not the ONLY procrastinator around here!

Peace, Love, and Sprinkles!

I’m so happy for you. Don’t worry about the blog, it will be here and so will we. After all, it’s part of you, so it should only be updated when you have time, right?
What a cutie. The pancakes look fab, as usual. I’ve been loving sprinkles as well.
and I’m only done with christmas shopping because I won’t be able to fit anything else in my suitcase going back to the states! EP
Aww, Hannah, you are THE sweetest! Love you!!
Awww yayy!!! 😀 You guys make a super cute couple! These pancakes of course look awesome as well !
I guess I’ll forgive you for ditching us… but only because I’m so happy for you! 😀 You guys make a cute couple!
Shortbread always screams Christmas to me. My family has the most amazing recipe passed down from my Nana! I’m definitely going to have to post about it if they give me permission to reveal our secret recipe. 😉
Broc Babe is so cute! Im so happy for you love!
Did you make him pancakes, I bet thats how you really hooked him, besides you being a total hottie ; )
Awww very cute 😉
And thanks for the recipe. Those look yummy. I’m gonna have to try to make them vegan though 🙂
AHHH CONGRATULATIONS! What a cutie! You guys are a very good-looking couple, if I do say so. 🙂 It’s nice to “meet” your broccoli-loving boy.
And what a lucky man he is, to have a gorgeous, veggie-loving girlfriend who makes him gingerbread pancakes!
not even gingerbread pancakes can distract me from HOW EXCITED I AM FOR YOU!! I’m so glad everything fell in to place and you finally found someone who deserves you! New car, new man, new pancake recipe. You are living the life, girl! 🙂 Love you!
he is very cute. so glad you are happy!
and those pancakes of course look delish!
and duh. we always miss you <3
i guess i'll let it slide. boys are SOMETIMES worth it.
What a hottie 😉 hehe Congrats on the “facebook official”… my man-friend and I finally made the jump to official “bf/gf” status. When he introduced me to someone as his girlfriend on Saturday, I think my jaw dropped. Yeah, big step for two commitment-phobes 😉 hahaha But seriously, he looks like a great guy! And he’s lucky to have someone as AMAZING as you!!!! 🙂
Now pass me some of those pancakes!
So happy for you! Delicious food = the key to a man’s heart 🙂 [[among other things of course]]
a good reason for blog absence, i think i’ll let this one slide, haha
Aw, awesome reason to ignore everything else 😉 Love the picture of you two, you both look great. Especially together 😀
Your pancakes look amazing! I totally didn’t need help craving pancakes, but now I really want pancakes for lunch, or even dinner would be awesome, haha.
what a beautiful couple;)
Cute! That is one stunning picture of you too 🙂
Penguins? Pancakes? Sprinkles? A cute guy? AND a beaming, joy-filled Heather? This post is full of a bunch of my favorite things!!! I’m sooooo happy for you friend, and take as much time away from the blog as you need to nurture your budding relationship… I miss the courting, lovey-dovey, passion-filled beginning of a relationship (not that I would change a thing with my almost-4-years in guy, but you know what I mean!), and I say LIVE IT UP, GIRL!! 😉 <3
Congrats, girl. He’s a cutie! I love the sprinkles on top. My grandma’s Christmas cookies scream Christmas!
I will be trying the pancakes the week before Christmas.
One dish that screams christmas to me is Kolachy cookies. I make these every year.
You know I’m beyond happy for you! What a cutie! As for the pancakes, I swear you were reading my mind the other day. I totally blog stocked you looking for this recipe! It is on my list to make ASAP! Enjoy your time away from here…you are missed, but as long as you’re happy, I’m happy!
