Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes


For fall, I love making pancakes with pumpkin, apple, or maple flavors. I do love to bake from scratch, but when it comes to weekend pancakes, I like to start with an easy pancake mix. It's so easy to take it up a notch with milk, extract flavorings and fresh fruit. For easy pumpkin pancakes, we simply added canned pumpkin puree and some pumpkin pie spices. My new favorite thing to add to fall recipes is concentrated liquid maple flavoring. You can make these pancakes without the maple flavoring, but if you have the chance to pick some up for the recipe, it is well worth it. You can add it to countless fall recipes like bread pudding, pumpkin muffins, apple pie, etc.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups dry boxed pancake mix
  • 1 & 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring (optional)                 

*Note: If you're starting with pumpkin spice pancake mix, simply omit the spices above and just add the milk and pumpkin puree.


I topped our pumpkin pancakes with my Easy Salted Caramel Sauce and some chopped pecans. It's the perfect indulgence for a fall brunch, especially if family is in town for the holidays. Enjoy!

  2. Krisztina, I can only look wistfully at the food photos and wish I had a live-in chef to make them for me--but I have used many of your household suggestions successfully. I wonder, have you ever thought about doing a Q&A page? I have a lot of questions!

    1. Lol. Well, I'm so happy to hear you've been able to put some of my info to good use.:) Yes, I've really been thinking about doing a Q & A page lately, so it's so funny that you ask. I need to get on the ball and get a page like that up for the holidays! It would be a great place for people to leave any additional questions in the comment section.
