During all this hustle bustle, I made pancakes a couple of times. I had never made pancakes from anything other than a box before I married Chris, and I didn't think this was a problem. And actually, it isn't. But! It is so super easy to make them without a mix, and then you don't have yet another cardboard box in your pantry. Also, the recipe we use (my mother-in-law's) makes very fluffy pancakes and they are oh-so-tasty! My mom used to put chocolate chips in our pancakes for us from time to time when I was little and I always enjoyed that. So naturally, I continued to do this with the homemade pancakes. One Saturday I was sad to discover I was out of chocolate chips, but I did have a few butterscotch left. Best "mistake" ever!!! Butterscotch have definitely become the favorite pancake embellishment in our house. You should try it sometime!

2 c flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
2 c milk
1/3 c vegetable oil
Whisk together dry ingredients. Beat eggs; stir in milk and oil. Combine and beat until mostly smooth (batter should still be a bit lumpy). Cook until underside is golden brown and bubbles appear over surface; flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes and remove.
