Friday Quickie: Pancakes!

Just a quick little post for you on this Friday! The hubbie has the morning off after a really busy week so I decided to treat both of us to a yummier than usual pancake breakfast that I doctored up just a bit. 

I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it inspires you to treat yourself to a cozy breakfast this weekend!

To make your pancakes, I used pancake mix and followed the directions on the box. I added about a tablespoon of sour cream to the mixture and about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. (I eyeball these things so I’m guesstimating, but you really can’t screw it up unless you go overboard!)

As your pancakes are cooking, heat up some lemon curd in the microwave on half power (so it doesn’t spurt everywhere inside the microwave). It’ll get nice and runny for drizzling on top of your pancakes. 

Once your pancakes are done, put butter and lemon curd between each layer, and top it with more lemon curd and some maple syrup. 

It’s sooooo delicious and feels extra special, without being a lot of extra work. Win win!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

love & cupcakes,

Happy birthing day to this blog!

Hello, world!

You know when they say if you have a goal and that goal gives you butterflies in your stomach, then you should go after said goal?

Well, this blog baby is that goal for me. And boy oh boy, did it take more than the 9 month gestation period for it to come to fruition. I mean, granted I didn’t have to give up wine or coffee, thank god (can I say thank god? I know it’s not really PC but I say it in real life, and I want you to feel like you’re reading/talking to me!), or go through the life changing process of giving birth, but MAN, it is a lot of work to get this bad boy set up!

I haven’t showered yet today, I’m still in my PJs and I don’t even wanna tell you what time it is! BUT, and this is a big but, I’m ok with that because I have wanted to start a blog of my own for YEARS! Thinking about taking the plunge of having my own blog, being responsible for generating content for it, and actually publishing it gave me those butterflies I told you about!

Do you have a goal or something you desperately want to do that just gives you hardcore butterflies? DO IT! Start working toward it. Don’t know how to achieve what you want? Start researching it; learn as much as you can about it! It’s a step in the right direction. And hopefully soon you can get your project rolling.

Let’s accomplish scary things TOGETHER!

So…what gives YOU those butterflies?

love & cupcakes,
