From the Kitchen of. . . .

Here’s a couple of winner recipes we’ve tried on a whim around here. I am more than happy to share!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes
This recipe is adapted from the Whole Wheat Pancakes over at The Happy Housewife.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP white sugar
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
3 TBSP butter, melted
Blueberries as desired.

Mix dry, then add wet and mix. Cook on hot, 350 degree griddle for about 3 minutes each side.

For freezing, I double the recipe. Let the extra pancakes completely cool (this is important!!), then place on a sheet and put in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then stack in a bag and store in freezer.

Baked Fries
So yummy and simple! I adapted this recipe from Disney’s Family Fun Recipes.

2-3 large baking potatoes
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 TBSP oil (I use EVOO)
1/2 tsp salt (optional)

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine garlic and oil in pan and heat thoroughly. Cut potatoes into 1/4 wedges (or matchsticks). Toss potatoes in the garlic/oil mixture. The spread potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until golden crispy (about 35 minutes), flipping halfway through. Salt can either be added in the tossing or sprinkled on the potatoes when you put them on the baking sheet.

Berry Blast Yogurt Pops
This recipe is from The Mommy Chef. My kids LOVE these!!
1 C. Greek Yogurt, plain or vanilla
1 1/2 C. frozen berries
Honey* to taste

* Children under 12 months should not have honey. A little apple juice concentrate or sugar will work fine to sweeten in this case.

Blend all ingredients together and pour into molds to freeze. Makes 4-8 depending on the size of your molds.
