We love our Dad's and the men in our lives who have supported us, sponsored us and generally made us feel great about ourselves.

We have a tradition in our house of the men making pancakes! 

There is nothing nicer than waking up to the smell of warm buttery pancakes being stacked high in the oven warming and the giggles coming from the children as they tippy toe on steps to peer into the pan while their Dad flips and flops those delicious golden treats. I almost don't mind the mountain of dishes that they're creating because often traditions come with a fair amount of mess.

This Father's Day we will be making pancakes and setting the table with maple syrup, blue berries and strawberry jam. We also like to have a big bowl of cinnamon sugar and freshly cut lemons on the table for squeezing and sprinkle onto our pancakes! Of course there will be a BIG pot of coffee for me too! 

Here is the recipe that literally lives on our fridge door, it is stained with buttery fingers and tick marks where the children have checked off the ingredients gathered to make sure we have everything before the cooking begins. It's a general guide only and can be easily doubled and often tripled in the case of our hunger girl gang!
