Weekend or  weekday pancakes can turn an breakfast routine  into a cherished ritual. Maybe you make these pancakes for your  family or maybe just for yourself!

I hope you enjoy this recipe, it is a favorite of my families and I never make it exactly the same way, there are so many delicious possibilities.

Good morning and welcome to my blog, I am  glad you’ve chosen to be here!

I thought of making a cute acronym for the information I will provide such as Recipes, Routines, and Reviews, but decided that was much too limiting.

The  content of this blog will be,  Whole Living with a special emphasis on Mind, Body, and Soul. I’ll be featuring inspirational quotes ( one of my favorite things! ), gluten-free recipes, words for motivation, book reviews,  natural care, and information on certain  Eastern Medicine practices among other things.

What you can expect here are kind words, selflessness, no judgement, and a positive attitude.
