We had an excellent breakfast this morning. Apple Oven Pancakes from the Williams-Sonoma Essential Baking cookbook. My Mom gave me this book a few years back it has great basic recipes and I have officially put this one and the Ginger Scones on my top 10 favorite baked goodies list. I think I was actually the most animated over breakfast this morning. I got so excited seeing those puffy golden cakes. Gary isn’t much of a breakfast kind of guy, but me, ohh I love breakfast. It’s the little things that bring me pleasure like some good coffee in a beat up old red mug that I’ve had for years. I don’t know what it is about that mug but if it isn’t available to me in the morning the whole rest of the day can be thrown off. One time I caught a friend using it for her tea when I wanted it for my coffee oh the dilemma.  I couldn’t believe how it threw off my whole morning. What’s up with that? Do I have tale tale signs of OCD? Anyway, this was about those Apple Oven Pancakes…

    Those look really good! I’m totally going to make them! I’m not a huge breakfast eater either, but they would work for any meal or snack, right?!

    That looks pretty tasty. You can tell we are sisters because I love breakfast too. BUT I think I love your green plates even more!

  3. Sara

    Yum! I’m with Angie…I think we’ll try that for a treat sometime. I also love the plates!

    Thanks for the compliments on the plates. I found them on sale at Target last week and couldn’t resist ($1.40 each). They are Melamine which is a bonus for us because we can’t break or chip them. We seem to have slippery fingers in this house
