Oatmeal Pancakes

I found this recipe on "Hold the Onions." I love their recipes because they are always good and never complicated. I wasn't sure if my kids would go for the oatmeal in these because you could see the lumps, but they totally loved them. Even my pickiest eater who does not try new things. Emery said they were the best pancakes ever.
1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk
1 cup water

*Stir together dry ingredients. Mix eggs, vanilla, milk and water separate and then add to dry. Makes 16-18 pancakes. (Unless you're doing Mickey Mouse).

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

I had some fresh blueberries and decided to make muffins. These were so good! They turned out moist and sweet. Perfect for a spring breakfast.

2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups flour
1 cup blueberries

Mix eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla and sour cream. Next, add salt, soda, flour. Gently fold in blueberries. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. (I used a cookie scoop to scoop the batter and it worked really well).

Ciabatta Garlic Bread

As many people know, Fresh and Easy is my new favorite store. Last week, I made lasagna and needed some garlic bread to go with it. I ran to F&E and bought a loaf of their ciabatta bread. Now it's our new favorite bread to make garlic bread with!

1 loaf ciabatta bread
butter, softened
garlic salt
parmesan cheese

Cut loaf, horizontally, in half. Spread each half with butter, garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Cut into slices. Put in oven at Broil Hi for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
