Carrot Cake Pancakes

Yes.  You heard me.  Carrot Cake Pancakes.  Those three words shouldn’t be allowed to be on a breakfast menu, right? WRONG! Here is another great creation from Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz!  If you are unfamiliar with her , you are vegan & you like to cook, I would strongly recommend  familiarizing yourself with her.  She is hands down my favorite vegan chef, with a load of awesome cookbooks under her belt (among those are Vegan with a Vengeance… Veganomicon… Vegan Cupcakes (or Cookies or Pies) Take Over the World… Vegan Brunch…).

These pancakes just blew my mind.  My kids loved them too. In fact, they were so excited about eating pancakes with the word “cake” in the title, they almost didn’t even realize that mommy was grating carrot to put in there!  (My tip for making that carrot grated fine enough is to grate it with a regular grater, then chop it up smaller bits with a big kitchen knife.)  We also put chopped walnuts on top of ours. YUM!!

Breakfast? Dinner? Dessert? How about…  ALL OF THE ABOVE!

Here is the link right to the carrot cake pancakes. I absolutely LOVE her post punk kitchen website (www.theppk.com) and I’m sure you will too – but don’t-don’t-don’t-don’t… don’t you… forget about me… :)

P.S.  The Gender Reveal Party was really a lot of fun! That was my first time going to one of those.  My sister & her son opened a box together to reveal pink and purple balloons! YAY! It’s gonna be a girl!

Team BOY (aka the losers!  But hey… we got to keep these cool mustache pins!)

Team GIRL (aka the winners!)

P.P.S. Our trip to the Renaissance Festival was also great!  There was a lot of vegetarian friendly foods… among those were some fried things… I definetly remember seeing fried mushrooms, roasted corn, portobello mushroom sandwiches, pickles… I wish I had asked if they shared the fryers with meat or had a separate veggie fryer.  Oh well, I was glad we brought in our own sandwiches, but it looked like there was a few snacks that we possibly couldve eaten… there was definetely vegetarian friendly food, though there was a lot of meat… steak on a stake…  that kind of stuff! Here are some of the things we saw!

They had quite a number of these funny things!

My daughter got a lovely butterfly painted on her face

Oh! Gargoyles! Hello!

Arlo was NOT afraid of giving the gargoyles “knuckles”!

If you let this guy insult you (for a fee), you got to throw tomatoes at his face!

Another funny picture…

Man-powered rides are the best!

Relaxing in the shade!
