Celebrate National Pancake Day

Show of hands, is anyone else jumping for joy because it is National Pancake Day or is it just me? I thought so! Pancakes are not just for breakfast anymore – the entire family loves it when we do a “breakfast for dinner” evening, and I can’t think of a more perfect day to have pancakes for dinner!

Nobody wants the same boring pancakes all the time though. That’s why I am thrilled to be sharing six yummy pancake variations from our friends at FamilyFun magazine which are sure to get your little ones (and not so little ones) excited to help out in the kitchen!
