Blueberry - Lemon Pancakes

A recipe found in San Bernardino 4th ward cookbook Cooking With Love from 1989.

Blueberry - Lemon Pancakes from Marilyn Willis
1 cup flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Combine above, then add:
1 beaten egg
1/2c. milk
1/2c. yogurt
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. oil
Use 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons blueberries on each.

Dan and I used Fage greek yogurt for the yogurt and used the blueberry compote that comes with the Fage yogurt on top of our pancakes. These pancakes were so fluffy and tasted so good.

We even subsituted soy milk for milk and raspberry soy yogurt for yogurt in the recipe for Jake who has a milk allergy and they were just as yummy.

Monster Party Preview

Jake's 3rd birthday party. Jake requested a monster party weeks ago before we knew we were buying a house and moving. We thought about not doing it since we just moved two weeks ago but we didn't want to disappoint him. Here's a preview of the party.
