Remember how I said that we’d feature a Homemaking Hints link-up on the first Friday of each month? Yes, well…I completely forgot about it in May. So sorry. Now that it’s June 1, I am remembering and very much looking forward to hearing your fun tips!
The tip I’m sharing comes from my lovely friend and mentor, Avon. After I shared my “Bird’s Nests” idea, this is what she emailed me:
I like to pour my pancake batter into a squeeze bottle… then it is amazing all the things you can design.
When the grandchildren are here I make a second squeeze bottle of batter and mix in some syrup. Then I make a design on the griddle (like a smiley face or their initials or in your case the state of idaho) then cover the whole thing with the regular batter. When you flip it over the design cooked darker so it looks really cool.
This was our traditional finale at all our sleepover parties when my kids were growing up.
Well, isn’t that just a super fun idea? I need to give it a try – I know my boys would love it! Now, if I could only find just a little bit of artistic ability so that my boys can actually recognize the designs I’m going for in my pancakes!
