Pancakes. The quintessential breakfast. Is there any food more comforting in the early hours of a Sunday morning? Warm, savory, and fluffy, paired with maple syrup and maybe a pat of butter or dollop of whipped cream. Sausage or bacon for a bit of protein. I can’t think of a more enticing start to the day. These Banana Spice Pancakes use my go-to pancake batter of bananas and plantains, but introduce some warming winter spices into the mix. The flavor pairs well with caramel and/or coffee, if either are an option for you!
Keep your household clean, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my health-consciousness actually began long before I started cooking. Growing up with a sensitive nose and skin that would break out into a rash at the slightest provocation, I’ve been making my own cosmetics and cleaning products since high school. I hoped that avoiding these environmental toxins would not only improve my health, but be better for the environment and save me some money compared to buying high-end non-toxic products at a health-foods store. Whatever your reasons, making your own household products is easier than you might think. My e-book A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
