What do pancakes and earrings have in common??

Except that I LOVE them both, and they'll both be in this post :)

Yesterday I made Brooks and I some wheat blender pancakes with the recipe that my sweet sister-in-law Katie shared with me.
Oh we were both happy campers...they were DELISH.
And since everyone deserves to be happy campers (makes me think of my Dad:) I want to share the recipe!
Here's all you need:
You can get whole wheat kernels at any whole foods store...or at Walmart if you live in Utah and food storage is at any basic grocery store ;)

Blend and pour...mmmmmm, sizzling pancakes :)
1 1/4 cups water [I used 1 2/3 cups]
1 cup whole wheat kernels
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk (optional) [I didn't add any and it was just fine]
1 egg
2 tablespoons margarine or oil [I used salted butter]
1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt [I didn't add]
1 tablespoon fresh baking powder

In blender, MIX water, wheat kernels, and dry milk on high for 3 minutes. ADD egg, butter, honey, & salt. BLEND for 20 seconds. ADD baking powder. PULSE three times just enough to mix. Mixture should foam up and become very light. COOK immediately on a hot nonstick griddle.

Cook: 3-4 minutes
Yield: 16 2" pancakes

Tip: If you want it to be semi-dairy-free, just add more water and omit the milk. OR skim milk can be used instead of water and nonfat dry milk. Batter also makes delicious waffles.
We topped our flap jacks with pure maple syrup (my favorite) and apple sauce (for Brooks) I canned last fall.
Brooks seemed to thoroughly enjoy his extra happy pancakes ;)

I'm linking this tasty dish to the lovely WhipperBerry!!
Go see what other awesome recipes, decor, and crafts people shared!

Remember how I shared my excitement of figuring out how easy it is to make unique, ornate button earrings?? I wear mine ALL the time by the way :)
Well a couple awesome ladies tried it themselves, and their earrings turned out great!!

First, Alli at Reasons to Smile made these golden lovelies back in January :)
I LOVE the cameo-looking ones in the back!
And then my friend Lauren at S'andL Days made some gorgeous dangly earrings last weekend! Using hooks instead of posts...they turned out awesome! I'm running some errands today and I'll putting earring hooks on the list for sure.
I'm SO glad Alli & Lauren had fun making them...both came out with such unique, pretty jewelry :)

Has anyone else had a chance to make them?? :)
