Buttermilk & Honey Tupelo Pancakes

I admit I’m a compulsive recipe tweaker. When trying a new recipe I keep finding myself adding pinches of this and drops of that trying to make the recipe my own and bring out even more flavor.

Jayden’s Smoothie

  When it comes to my kiddo’s eating habits, I really can’t complain. However, there’s one thing he absolutely dislikes. Fruit. Amazing, isn’t it? I thought kids took to fruit naturally? Guess not. Aside from apples and an occasional grape, he’ll simply refuse to eat any kind of fruit unless it’s mashed, blended or incorporated into something. Now for a short while I wasn’t even all too unhappy about that – this was…
