Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Terrifying Pumpkin Pancakes

I figured out that there are 191 calories per serving, if 15 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

This was my sad first attempt

First you put the food colored face in the pan
and let it heat for about 45 seconds

Then, you add the regular batter on top of the face

Here are some of my faces

         I am so surprised how much I love these pancakes. Making the faces was downright fun, even though I made a disaster of the B, which was my first attempt at this new skill. The pancakes were light and not overdone. The taste was subtle, which was important to me. I did add syrup because that’s the way I roll.
         I also took some over to the Serpico and Nicole, Gianna, Marisa and Michael all liked them. I am sure Nicole and I will be making them in the future.
