Homemade pancakes are a Sunday tradition in our house and have been most of my life. While growing up they were my dad’s specialty (as in the only thing he knew how to cook) so we ate a lot of them. As I brought the Sunday tradition into our own house homemade is the only way to go. The blue bag or yellow box doesn’t make the memories any less but it’s one more thing to remember to add to my list. The ingredients for pancakes are things that I always have on hand so it’s just easier to make my own.
