Another Pinterest find

Melinda, a dear friend, pinned this recipe... and I was dying to try it out.
This was her favorite part of the steps!  ;) (smashing the graham crackers!)

Little one went a bit over board with the marshmallows!  :)  (you can tell which ones he did and which ones I did!)
 S'mores cookies, anyone?  Ooops.... wait, we don't have any left over, sorry! But go here and try them out for yourself... SOOOO good!

She and I have been baking a lot lately...  She's a great help because she actually reads the directions! (I wing a lot of things... But I specifically advised her that "winging" baking recipes is not a good idea... Hope it sticks when she is a mom and baking for her children...).

Today... blueberry and cranberry scones! I cannot remember where the recipe came from.  I thought it was a bit dry, so we're going to try another recipe later on this month.

Breakfast anyone??

I think the best part of summer vacation is being able to enjoy breakfast.  Without having to rush out of the house in the morning, we make time to eat.. together!  It's a great feeling for me.  So we have been experimenting on different recipes.  This is one of our favorite.  The other is making fresh waffles.  Everyone tells me to make extras and freeze them... Um, we never have any left over!  :)

This is our favorite crepe recipe (but here it's called English pancakes). It's the easiest recipe! (1 C flour, 1 C milk, 3 eggs, 1/4 C powdered sugar) -- I normally double the recipe.

So, I make them...

and the children embellish them anyway they like... (Nutella, whipped cream, jam, whatever fresh fruit we have on hand, syrup, etc):

This is how I enjoy mine... filled with homemade apricot preserves made by my dear friend, Matt, and whipped cream... yum!

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  We certainly are...
