Four Fabulous Fall Flapjacks

I had to use flapjacks in the title because I’m a sucker for alliteration, sometimes I just can’t stop being a teacher. Anyway, these flapjacks or pancake, depending on what you like to call them, recipes are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert. Here they are!

  1. Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes will not disappoint. They are just the right amount of pumpkin with crunchy pecans and a hint of cinnamon.

2. Salted Caramel Oatmeal Pancakes with Caramel Drizzle are oatstanding! I would eat these for breakfast, but I would also serve them with some vanilla ice cream for a quick and impressive dessert.

3. Apple Cinnamon Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup are fall on a plate!

4. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Drizzle make breakfast special. They could also be a fabulously easy dessert.

Welcome to Five on Friday Week 9!

  1. I am still super happy and flabbergasted by the outpouring of support and donations we have received to help those in need.  I will be posting the numbers of what was collected and where it goes next week. Below are a few pictures of the stage at my school. I can not say thank you enough to everyone who has helped promote, gather, and sort all of the items! 
  2. One of my dear friends and co-workers got me a Teacher Box from Penzeys. I wouldn’t have bought one for myself, but I thought they were super cool. I love the pins, the bumper sticker, and the book! They are now decorating the handle of my teacher work bag and the bumper sticker is on my computer. Thank you Beth! 
  3. I’ve discovered Penzeys Pumpkin Spice this week. I used it on top of Dave’s Killer ‘Raisin’ the Roof’ Bread that I had toasted and spread with cream cheese. I’m now addicted! The Pumpkin Spice is delicious and has a hint of vanilla,. It makes this breakfast bread even more special. I put my toasted raisin bread, cream cheese, pumpkins spice breakfast in my environmentally friendly Lunch skins. Also, If you haven’t tried Dave’s Killer Bread you need to! They are a wonderful company, doing wonderful things, and they have a wonderful product!

    I used organic low-fat cream cheese to add a bit of creaminess and extra protein.

    Lunchskins are awesome! They come in all sizes and have lots of fun patterns.

  4. I have been waiting impatiently for my DNA results to come back from Family Tree DNA. They finally came back last night and revealed some surprises. I can’t wait to do some research this weekend! I can’t wait to further explore my families history.
  5. I am so happy that Tijuana Flats is close to my house and offers a teacher discount on top of their weekly deals. After this very busy week, I’m beat and too tired to cook. They made my night a lot easier! Mr. Teacher and I both had a big beef burrito with black beans, guacamole, queso, chips, and an assortment of hot sauce for the grand total of $17. Sometimes you just need take-out.


Remember it’s the little things that count! Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to share your top 5 below. Also don’t forget to sign up for weekly emails!

Happy Friday!

Crock-potting Indian Style

I love my crock-pot dearly. I also love my friends, helping to improve recipes and Indian Food. I recently had the opportunity combine all of my loves into creating this easy throw together, knock-out, flavorful, Crock-Pot Indian Butter Chicken. This recipe comes together in minutes and will rival that of any restaurant.

Let me go back to the beginning, Mr. Teacher and I had our good friends over for dinner and we were discussing food. Our friends had been excited to try a crock-pot butter chicken recipe, but they were very disappointed in how it turned out. They said it was missing something and couldn’t figure out what it was. Well I took it as a challenge. They sent me a copy of the recipe and I went to work trying to make it better.

A few days later, I thought I had it. I made a big batch of Butter Chicken and it was FABULOUS!!!! I brought some left-overs to work the next day for Heather to try. She agreed that it was delicious. Now I get to share this easy recipe with you!

My recipe features fresh and flavorful spices from Penzeys. They are wonderful and I think really make the difference in this dish. I put the links to several of the spices I used below if you would also like to try them and I strongly encourage you to do so! I also lightened the original recipe up by removing over half of the butter, using low-fat coconut milk, and fat-free Greek yogurt. Trust me you will not know that the fat is missing!

If you have a recipe that you think could be improved, email me or comment below. I love a good challenge and I would be glad to help you out as well.
