Nutella Football Pancakes

Nutella Football Pancakes

Who’s ready for Super Bowl Sunday? We are big football fans and the Super Bowl is always an exciting day in our home. Even though our team completely bombed this year (Giants fans, you feel me?), we are still excited to see which teams make it and cheer them on. It’s a whole day celebration, starting with breakfast. The kids will get a “kick” out of these pancakes!

I make the pancakes with an easy pre-made mix and prepare the batter according to the box instructions while getting my griddle nice and hot. Let the batter sit for a minute, then spoon the batter onto the hot griddle into a football shape. Wait for the batter to start bubbling, flip the pancakes and cook them for another minute or until they are golden.

Spoon some Nutella into a plastic sandwich bag and cut a tiny hole in one of the corners (or use a piping bag if you have one). Squeeze the Nutella onto the pancakes in the design of football laces.

Serve with whip cream, syrup, strawberries, or whatever your family likes!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Bites

Happy Fall! I thought this would be the perfect time to get back into blogging. It’s my favorite time of the year to be in the kitchen, so it just seems fitting. Now I don’t know about where you guys are, but it does not feel like fall in Upstate NY. Ninety degrees in September doesn’t exactly scream “autumn” and I haven’t even thought about picking a single apple or pumpkin. However, the calendar says its September, the pools are closed, and the mums are on my porch so I will cook like it’s fall.

These no-bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Bites are perfect in the morning for a quick breakfast on the go or a mid-day snack.

Beet Citrus Pink Pancakes

Your family will love waking up to these pretty pink pancakes on Valentine’s Day morning! The pink color comes from Wildtree’s Beet Citrus Dressing & Marinade. The color of the dressing is so intense that you’ll only need a couple of tablespoons. It adds an extra sweet flavor to the pancakes and makes them so delicious! Proof that kids (or non-beet-loving adults) will love these pancakes….

Super Bowl Favorites

Super Bowl Sunday has always been one of my favorite “holidays” (it really should be considered a holiday)! Friends and family gather to watch the big game and eat! My favorite part has always been the half time show….pre-JT/Janet’s wardrobe malfunction…ever since then they just haven’t been the same. My all time favorite half time show was Aerosmith/Britney/ NSync/Nelly/Mary J Blige in 2001. Anyone else remember that one?! Ah-mazing!!

My other favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday is the food, of course! I’ve compiled my favorite past recipes that make great Super Bowl food dishes. Whether you’re hosting a party, going to a party, or just chilling at home (and not watching the game at all!), these meals are perfect to celebrate the end of another football season!
