Two Cooking Successes!

I just had to share.

1. We are out of cereal so I made pancakes from scratch for the kids this morning. I used this recipe from and they were amazing. Light, fluffy, and so easy to make, with common ingredients I already had on hand! The kids gobbled them up and asked for more.

I didn't take a picture of the ones I made, but they looked identical to this picture from
2. Collin slept in due to a headache, but when he got up he was ravenous. He wanted to go out and get something to eat, but I offered to cook for him instead. He requested pancakes, bacon, and eggs over hard.

Due to using the stove to make the eggs and pancakes, I decided to try baking the bacon in the oven. It turned out to be the BEST bacon I'd ever tasted! Moist and crisp and delicious. I followed these instructions and the bacon turned out marvelous. Best of all, there was very little mess, and it was so easy! I'm definitely using the oven to make bacon from now on.


  1. Yum. I make homemade pancakes always, and they're delicious. I try different recipes every once in a while and they've all been good.

    I'm gonna have to try that with bacon. I only eat turkey bacon, but I"m sure it'd work.

  2. I always make bacon in the oven... Because we need 2 pounds to feed everyone.. So 3 baking sheets full of bacon go in at one tome!!!

    1. Omgosh!!! I couldn't even imagine cooking that much food! Ha!

  3. Amazing. Gotta try that Bintheoven!!!!!

    Great Post!
