Last night I took a little trip to one of my favorite places to spend time with two of my favorite people and par take in some of our favorite activities. Lots of favorites. 

Being back at Syracuse for one night is too much of a tease. 4o days until the move in process begins! (Sorry, mom..)
A little birdie was quite angry with me that I have been a slacker. Since I'm so busy with no time on my hands really excuse-less as to why I haven't updated I figured I would make Maria happy.

And I choose pancakes because I woke up wanting pancakes today. Weird, I do not like breakfast.

Also, I have become a pro pancake maker and make them at least once a week for my kiddos. Gold star for me. 

Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Pinch of cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk, plus 2 Tablespoons
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries or strawberries, chocolate chips, whatever you please
Toppings of your choice- syrup, powdered sugar, etc

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla.
3. Pour liquids into the flour mixture and stir until combined (the batter will be lumpy, no worries!)
4.Grease a skillet or griddle and cook the pancakes on medium heat.
5. Right after pouring the batter onto the griddle plop the blueberries onto the pancakes.
6. Cook until the edges bubble and flip until the other side is cooked. 

Pancakes are really not pretty. But I promise they are tasty.
