Breakfast Kabobs (nut & gluten free)

This is just fun to make for the kids.  Cut up various fruit.  We like to use a mix of these fruits depending on what’s in season… strawberries, pineapple, apples (cut into chunks), blueberries, grapes, and bananas.  Then take a waffle (gluten-free if preferred) and cut it into little squares too.  Take a kabob stick and place a piece of waffle, then slice of strawberry, a piece of pineapple, 2 pieces of waffle, grape, blueberry, 2 pieces of waffles, more strawberry, a blueberry, and a piece of waffle.  If you don’t have a kabob stick, use a toothpick and use one piece of fruit and a piece of waffle.

It’s a fun breakfast for the kids to make, super easy & even more fun to eat!

Homemade Pancake Syrup

My girls are on spring break this week, and this morning we had nowhere that we had to be, so I decided to make pancakes. A treat we don’t have very often, because of time contraints of getting both girls off to school and getting myself ready for work. The pancakes and sausage were done cooking, and I was setting the table when I checked the pantry and realized we had no syrup. I jumped on the internet and found a few syrup recipes, but didn’t have all the ingredients. I decided to wing it. Here is what I did… I used 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla, and 1 1/4 cup of water. I put it all in a pan and cooked it on medium until it started to boil, stirring constantly. I boiled it for about 6-7 minutes.

When it was done it was thinner than syrup, so maybe I should have let it cool some or maybe cooked it longer. However, in a pinch this definitely worked, and it was pretty good. If nothing else it’s good for a sugar rush. 🙂
