not bisquick

Growing up my mom made breakfast every morning. It was either, cereal, eggo's, or bisquick pancakes.
My favorite was of course those big, white and fluffy pancakes, topped with that syrup in the shape of the old lady. Huh? Ya, I know.. I also grew up with candy corn and peeps as a staple. You would never guess.
Well, Yesterday being mothers day, I woke up and thought about my mom and "her" pancakes. Big and fluffy was my main goal. Since, I don't even know where to find bisquick at the grocery store... really.. no clue. And my mom is not around to just "add water" to the mix so I made do.

Mom, I miss you and think of you everyday. I know your watching over and protecting my family. You are our angel.  I wish you were here to talk to, play with and hold your grandbabies and of course make me pancakes. For now, I'll just make do.


  1. ugghhh i just tried to comment and it deleted me!


    i said that i don't know the story behind losing your mom, but i am so sorry she is no longer here. i can't imagine how hard that is.. but i am so glad you have two cute kiddos to love to pieces.

    and i love coconut flour pancakes! such awesome texture.

    that was the gist of it.

  2. What a great tribute to your Mom :). I think my Mom made us bisquick as well. I prefer the homemade version now too- and coconut is a great add in. And may I also add, I used to be a peeps addict too!
