Hawaiian Pancakes

How about a new, healthy pancake recipe that doesn’t include pumpkin or cranberries?! I don’t know about you but I’m tired of pumpkin ha! Plus the pineapple/banana/coconut blend makes me feel like summer is getting closer (hard to believe that with snow on the ground!) These pancakes came about as one of those that ingredients just end up in the bowl. I just kept tossing things in there until I was satisfied with the flavors. This would make a great summer breakfast too – but we’ll enjoy it now anyway! Makes about 6 medium sized pancakes.

Quick & Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Move over canned soup! This quick and easy meal will make you never want to buy soup in a can again! If you don’t have a pressure cooker – it may prove to be a worthwhile investment (my opinion is electric is easiest). Mine is a multi-function electric that can slow cook, pressure cook, cook rice, brown, etc.  It is my go to appliance on busy dinner nights. I also like it on those cold days or sick days when you just don’t feel like cooking. This soup is comforting and filling. I used to love having chicken noodle soup on hand but I will only make homemade from now on. Using this recipe, I know exactly what it is in the soup and can rest easy knowing that I’m giving my family something healthy with no preservatives. This makes about 4 large servings.

Individual Apple Pies

These little guys are just too cute. I saw the idea on Pinterest but never really put much thought or research into it. I had some extra apples that needed cooked and really craved some pie. So I remembered the pin and gave it a try. These turned out pretty great. I added a little stuffing to mine for a little extra flavor. These are very easy and much lighter than the traditional pie. This recipe makes two servings.
