Pancakes!

Mr. Jack loves pancakes. He eats them almost every morning along with eggs! I have done different mixes as well as from scratch. He gobbles them up all the same. I found a recipe for Applesauce Pancakes at Wholesome Toddler Food and decided to make them this morning. (I decided to blog about it after the fact, so there are no "making the pancake pictures") This site is GREAT for making wonderful healthy meals for your toddler and I used the baby food site for when he was little and I made all his baby food!

Applesauce Pancakes

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1 beaten egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups applesauce

Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl. Combine butter, milk and egg. Stir into dry ingredients. Add vanilla and applesauce, beat well. Spoon batter onto a hot, well greased griddle, about 4 inches in diameter.

*Tips*
Use whole milk and unsweetened applesauce
These brown quickly, and you can't tell like you would regular pancakes so keep an eye on them!
The texture is much softer than a regular pancake
They are really sweet on their own, and don't need massive toppings
They taste really good and the whole family will love them!

Another super tip is to use a pancake pen! I just bought one at our local kitchen store and I love love love it! Check it out here (mine has a green top and bottom and is not Williams-Sonoma brand and it works great!)

Jack of course gobbled them up!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!


Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
