Homemade pancakes are one of this family's favorite comfort foods. Steven particularly loves pancakes. Of course, I always say he'll eat anything that's covered in syrup. Like Buddy the Elf, he thinks syrup is one of the basic food groups.
Pancakes are easy to make. I always make twice as much and freeze the rest. The kids can just warm them up in the toaster or in the microwave!
1 Cup Flour
3 Tablespoons Melted Butter (cooled)
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
3/4 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
Mix all ingredients together (use my mixing tip for easier clean up). Pour 1/4 cup batter on a hot, lightly-oiled griddle or skillet. Cook until bubbles rise out of batter and edges start to look dry. You can also check underside for doneness by lifting slightly with a spatula. Turn and cook until browned on both sides. Serve hot with butter and syrup.

I am still amazed at how simple and delicious this comes out!
Savory Pork Roast
3-4 Lb. Boneless Pork Roast
Drizzle honey over the pork roast to make a nice, even coat. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and onion powder to your liking ( I like a lot of onion powder and pepper on mine). Pierce the roast all over with a small knife to allow the honey and seasonings to seep in. Let roast sit at room temperature for one hour, turning every 15 minutes or so to roll the roast in the honey that drips down.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Brown all sides of the roast in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan on a rack. Place in oven and roast for about 28 minutes per pound. Check doneness with meat thermometer beginning about 3/4 of the way through the roasting process. Internal temp should be 160 degrees when done roasting. Let roast rest on platter tented loosely with foil for about 20 minutes to allow juices to redistribute. Thermometer should read about 165 degrees after resting.
Slice and serve warm.
