Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!!! I could seriously eat breakfast twice a day, between protein shakes, french toast, cereal, scrambled eggs, pancake and waffles. Waffles are my total downfall, which is why it’s probably a good thing that I don’t own a waffle maker. My next love would be a tie between protein shakes and pancakes. I struggled for the longest times making pancakes from scratch. After many trials and errors, I can actually say I am all about making them from scratch, which is not always a good thing. In the past I have bought many box mix pancakes from Trader Joe’s, which my favorites would be their coconut and pumpkin. So after playing with pumpkin recipes, I finally came up with one that is a winner in our household. Jimmy loves them and he doesn’t have an obsession with pumpkin like I do. So with it being the weekend, I hope you make these little gems this weekend and have a wonderful breakfast with your family. Of course don’t forget to cook the bacon too.

Wishing you a day full of love, laughter, sunshine and sweetness.
