Weekend treats


Our first round of homemade ice cream this summer. Mmmm. Some of our yearly flavors are your typical vanilla, dark chocolate, peanut butter, and cookies and cream, with occasional new ones thrown in. This week I'll try to make strawberry ice cream while the berries are on sale and then I'd like to try some different flavors this summer. Green tea, or any tea, and tiramisu are on my mental list.
Pancake cups from Sycamore Stirrings. I decided to make ours in miniature, though, as we do many things to accommodate small person appetites. And also because they're so cute! I didn't have a lot of toppings on hand, but I had enough to create these combos: peanut butter and banana, strawberries and cream cheese, scrambled eggs with cream cheese and a spot of blackberry jelly. The egg one actually turned out to be my favorite.

My adjustments to the pancake cup recipe were 1) to make smaller pancakes and bake them in mini-muffin tins, 2) to thin them by spreading them with the bottom of the ladle after pouring into the pan instead of by adding some water to the batter.

Thanks for posting your pancake ideas! I'm searching the net right now looking for some recipes. I wonder if my family would eat pancakes 4 days in a row! All the ideas look delicious!
