Kid Friendly Party Food

Pancake Muffins. Yes, two breakfast foods in one. Fluffy, golden brown, and oh so delicious.

These muffins are great for kids; they can just dip the muffins into the maple syrup but they're also great for parties. You and your friends/family can gather around the table and just eat and dip them.

They're very versatile too. You can add chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts, etc. to the batter. You can cut out the middle and fill it with your favorite fruit compost or other favorite filling. I added raspberry jam and some maple syrup.

All you need to do is make your favorite pancake recipe and fill a muffin tray, either 24 or 12 muffin tray. The recipe I used was a simple and classic. Actually the best recipe I've used for pancakes. The recipe calls for 1/2 to 3/4 cups of milk. I used both amounts, because I found the batter to be dry; it worked out beautifully.

After you make the pancake batter, butter your muffin tray and pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. But remember I used a 12 muffin tray, so adjust the time if you use a 24 muffin tray. After they're golden brown, check if they're done by poking a toothpick or knife in the middle. If it comes out clean, you're good to go. Take them out, let them cool, and put them on a plate. Then you can jazz them up however you want. Again, you can use fruit compost, other type of filling, out just good ol' maple syrup.

That's it! That's how simple it is to make these delicious muffins. Enjoy!

I'm sorry I've sort of neglected this blog. Writers block and no motivation equals no blog posts. I have ideas to write about, but nothing happens. Bare with me please.

watching, wearing, wanting, waiting, winning

I'm currently watching some old TV show that my mom likes. 

I'm currently wearing a pink shirt with comfortable lounge shorts.

I'm currently wanting my own apartment, pancakes (I'm craving them right now), to go shopping, cook, and go to culinary school. 

I'm currently waiting for dinner to be ready, I'm really hungry, I can eat a cow. 

I'm currently winning nothing. I used to enter a ton of giveaway but I haven't entered many lately.

Currently & Announcement

snapping, checking, learning, dropping, saving

I'm currently snapping nothing. 

I'm currently checking job boards online. I lost my job the other day :( Back to square one again.

I'm currently learning it's ok if you lose your job and to cry about it for a day. But after crying for a day, get back up, update your resume, get back onto those job boards, and apply. Oh, and call people back when they offer you a job. I have yet to do that...eek!

I'm currently dropping everything. I dropped my anxiety medication a few days ago, I dropped a fork I was using today, I've dropped my phone, etc. I could go on forever. I've been a klutz. 

I'm currently saving money by being frugal. 

Now for the announcement. 

I'm expanding my blog! I'm including cooking and traveling now. Since I don't travel much, I'm looking for contributing writers for the traveling section. And if you want to contribute to the cooking section, let me know. So, if you're interested leave a comment with your email or shoot me an email at mscdyson@ymail.com.

Sunday Currently

Reading The House of Memories by Monica McInerney. 

Writing this blog post. I'm in a writing slump though, so not a lot of blog posts happening right now. 

Listening to the TV. I'm watching Full House. 

Thinking why the hell did I lose my job? Why was I let go? I was a hard and dedicated worker. 

Smelling nothing. 

Wishing I was rich and never had to work a day in my life. I also wish I had my own apartment, was married to my boyfriend, was financially stable, and had my career choice figured out. 

Hoping I get a job soon. I just lost my job today, so yea...

Wearing a tank top and really comfortable shorts. 

Loving my boyfriend, the summer, 

Wanting my own apartment, 

Needing my own apartment

Feeling sad. I just cried for like 2 hours. 

Clicking every single job listing I see on Craigslist and other job board.

feeling, questioning, longing, watching, moving

I'm currently feeling under the weather. My allergies have been killing me since last week. I have a love/hate relationship with the spring. 

Jose, my boyfriend, is currently questioning what his next step is in terms of schooling and a career. He just finished his Associates in Criminal Justice, but now he's wondering what to get his Bachelor's in and what career he wants in CJ. 

I'm currently longing to go on vacation and get out of NYC for awhile. I haven't been on vacation since the summer of 2012. 

I'm currently watching TV. Nothing in particular; I have it on for background noise. 

I'm currently moving nothing. I do want to move soon, out my parents house, but I'm not financially stable yet.
