My new favorite pancake recipe.

The Mad Hatter requested pancakes for breakfast "breadfest", and who am I to deny?

She told me that while I was making them she'd tell me the instructions.

I thought that I would do the world my humble audience the complete justice of sharing the cooking tips of my newly-turned four-year old.

Number one, you put water in it.
And number two, put mustard in it. Sorry, that's not mustard - you add mush.
Number three, stir it.
And number four put it on the pancakes.

When I asked what number five was, she told me there isn't any number 5.

Voila, pancakes.

Wait! You can also put cheese, strawberries, and blueberries on it. Oh, and syrup too.

All good tips if you ask me, although the cheese part is questionable.

Hang on a sec, what's that?

Oh, she's pointing something out on the box. That's not cheese (thank goodness she doesn't really think cheese on pancakes is a good idea), it's butter.

Okay, the secret's out.

I'm not Martha Stewart or Donna Reed. I use "add water only" mix.

And they're absolutely delish.

And hey, it's a step up from the frozen mini Aunt Jemimas we usually have on weekdays but are sadly out of on a day that nothing but pancakes will do for the first time in over 2 weeks.

Usually the mix is reserved for once in while Sunday mornings when DH begs special occasions.

I'm good like that.

What are your kids' favorite recipes?

Oh and guess what? Mommy actually ate breakfast for the first time in forever. Maybe I should follow the Mad Hatter's requests and recipes more often!
