Make your own whole wheat pancake mix

My kids love freshly made pancakes but I hate mixing them up in the morning when we are short on time.  I don’t love the taste of store bought pancake mix so the perfect solution is this homemade whole wheat pancake mix.  I love using this because the pancakes are hot and fresh and I only have to add water!  It is soooo easy!  I also own a wheat grinder so I buy the wheat and grind it myself, which gives me control over what kind of flour I use.  My kids like when I add mini chocolate chips or blueberries to the batter.

This whole wheat pancake mix is perfect for busy mornings.  Just add water and you're ready to go!


Whole Wheat Pancake Mix Recipe
  • 3 cups non fat powdered milk
  • 9 cups whole wheat flour (wheat that has been ground from soft white wheat…if you don’t have whole wheat flour from soft white wheat then you’ll need to use 7 cups whole wheat flour and 2 cups white flour)
  • 1/3 cup baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp salt
1.  In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients until well blended. 
2.  Store in a large container with a tight fitting lid.

When I make this pancake mix I usually just add water and I don’t measure anything out.  However the original recipe that my friend gave me says to add a little butter.  Here is her recipe:

Whole Wheat Pancakes from Mix
  • 2 cups mix 
  • 1 2/3 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp oil or melted butter
1.  Preheat skillet.
2.  Blend together mix and water, using a whisk.
3.  Pour a small amount of batter onto the hot skillet.  When the edges start to look dry and bubbles form on the top, turn pancakes over.
4.  When golden brown on the other side, remove and serve.

Recipe for Slow Cooker Cajun BBQ Pork Steaks

(This is an updated post/photo from September 2011)

Awesome.  Totally.

My husband thought these cajun bbq pork steaks were the best thing ever.  And I must say, I liked them a lot too.  The searing of the steaks retains their flavor and the flour really helps the sauce to stay nice and thick.

Recipe for Slow Cooker Sweet Tomato Basil Soup (Sweet Tomatoes Copy Cat)

(This is an updated post with new photos from November 2012)

The other day I went to Sweet Tomatoes and was loving their Sweet Tomato Basil Soup.  I decided I needed to make something similar at home.  And I made something even better.  If you love tomato soup, you will love this soup (AND bonus it's very very easy.)

I know you all love this recipe for the tomato basil parmesan soup (it's my most popular recipe of all time).  But I'm hear to tell you that this recipe is JUST as good.  AND it's easier.  AND it gets less dishes dirty.  AND you will love it.  What are you waiting for???

One Pot (CrockPot) Chicken Tetrazzini

This is the good old fashioned chicken tetrazzini that you grew up with without all the work!  All the ingredients (including uncooked noodles) go into your slow cooker and then you turn and walk away...it's that easy.  Make it even easier by using a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

Best Recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was reminded of these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies when my cousin made them for a family reunion last week.  They are so good!  I just love a good, chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.  When I was growing up my mom would make a version of these cookies but with shortening.  I love how shortening gives a good texture to cookies but I do NOT love how shortening tastes.  So these cookies are made with butter and the texture is good.  Win-win.  I think you will agree.
