I remember seeing a heavenly puffy pancake over at Kim's - Liv Life Too blog and I've been craving one ever since. This weekend presented the perfect opportunity to stay home and have a great breakfast. Most of my mornings are way too busy and fueled only by caffeine, bad habit I know! Sometimes we need to slow down even for a few minutes and fix a hearty breakfast.
I'm sure most of you are in holiday preparation overdrive, like myself. So this week I will be making all easy stuff you can do in a hurry. There is nothing worse than being over-stressed and hungry at the same time. It can lead to eating a whole box of cookies and before the sugar even reaches your brain and you realize, "Oh no, what have I done." Not that it's happened to me or anything.
Save yourself from the hard crash later and have a good breakfast!

I would have made this one fancy like Kim's with apples, but my husband was in such a hurry he ate the whole thing within minutes.
