KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors. As I clicked around and noticed all of the bright florals, modern neutrals, and boho-chic tribal prints; I found myself wondering where the vision behind this brand comes from. Owner Melis…

Spice Up Your Pancakes for Fall

 

My daughters and I love making pancakes for a weekend brunch, especially during fall. Though don't get me wrong, I rarely make them entirely from scratch. I do love to bake and cook homemade, but I don't want to spend all weekend doing it. Still that doesn't mean we sacrifice on flavor, not one bit. This weekend we added ground cinnamon, nutmeg and liquid maple flavoring to the boxed pancake mix.



Next time you have a cozy Sunday brunch, try spicing it up with these fall flavors (based on mixture of 2 cups dry pancake mix):

1. Apple Cinnamon: add a peeled, finely chopped extra large Granny Smith apple and 1 tspn of ground cinnamon

2. Cranberry Orange: add the zest of one large orange and one cup dried cranberries (soak the cranberries in water beforehand until they plump up a bit)

3. Vanilla Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract, (optional): seeds from 1 fresh vanilla bean, 1 tspn ground cinnamon

4. Butterscotch: add 2 tbsp liquid butterscotch flavor

5. Pumpkin Spice: add 1 tbsp vanilla extract and 1 tspn pumpkin pie spice

*The possibilites are endless. You can use any combination of spices and flavoring extracts. Make them into dessert with candy sprinkles or chocolate chips. Add a cup of fresh, dried or thawed frozen fruit, and you can also add nuts or oats. For a rich, hardy texture and flavor, start with an instant pancake mix in whole wheat or buckweat. Then don't forget to drown them in maple syrup!

  2. Pancakes are of course a personal favourite. I like the apple cinnamon variety, but also blueberries.

    1. I think I just like them because I get to pour maple syrup on them. Apple cinnamon are my favorite!

  3. I do make apple pancakes using chopped apples. My family loves them. Never thought of adding cinnamon though.
