Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day! Hope everyone had an AMAZING day! Every year I spoil my mom rotten, but she indulges me the other 364 days of the year. Confession: I am a typical only child. I’m not spoiled, I’m blessed. On top of the fantabulous gifts I gave her, she also put in a special requests for pancakes. Fact: I can make cakes from scratch, I can roast an entire chicken, but I SUCK at pancakes. I have no idea where I go wrong but it almost always flops. I wasn’t completely thrilled with how these came out, I’m not sure if I put too much brown sugar in the batter or the fact that I forgot the pinch of salt (which does make a difference). My college boyfriend use to put sugar in his pancake batter and it was PHENOMENAL! Either way, my skills are lacking. I did, however, love the blueberry syrup! Simple and sweet.
