We are forever thankful that we did not lose power and that we have snow blower that allowed my husband to get out during the snow storm and attempt to keep up with the piles of snow every few hours. There are many others who were not so lucky that lived closer to the coastal areas and further south of us. My heart goes out to them, especially those who are still trying to recover from Hurricane Sandy!
When we are fortunate enough to have a winter storm happen on a weekend, it means a relaxed day at home where we can stay cozy, watch movies and I spend some time cooking. It truly makes me happy when I can have day to make a few things in the kitchen and wander in and out to watch movies with the family.
I don't typically make breakfast on the weekends, even though it would seem the perfect time to get in there and make something special. We often have too many errands or other places to be early in the day to accommodate doing this on a regular basis. So, Saturday morning I made a super easy homemade pancake recipe that I've tweaked from one I found on All Recipes when I ran out of Bisquick one morning.
