Sheet Pan Pancakes recipe - The breakfast shortcut every busy parent needs to know

Sheet Pan Pancakes recipe - The breakfast shortcut every busy parent needs to know

You guys.  GUYS.  I just discovered the ultimate breakfast hack for busy mornings.  I can't believe I hadn't figured this one out sooner; but alas, now that I have this life-altering trick, I HAD to share it with you (along with a recipe, of course). 

Does your family love pancakes?  Do you hate getting out and cleaning your griddle?  Do you ever find yourself too busy to sweat over a stove or griddle for a long period of time?  Do you ever need to serve up a big breakfast quickly?  I know I can answer "yes" to all of these questions.  If you can answer "yes" to any of them too, then this breakfast shortcut is right up your alley. 

What is this glorious trick?  Sheet pan pancakes.  AKA pancakes you can make in bulk, mostly hands-off, and without a griddle.  Keep reading for the method, along with my recipe at the end of the post.

The breakfast shortcut every busy parent needs to know: sheet pan pancakes

One of my good girlfriends enlightened our group of friends with this trick about a month ago, and it has changed EVERYTHING.  Not just for a busy weekend morning, but for meal planning as well (since sheet pan pancakes make so many, you can pull out a few throughout the week without any fuss or mess).

Behind the wheel of some of Kia's most luxurious rides at the DFW Auto Show


I have been given compensation for this post by Kia Motors. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Those of you following me know the whole premise behind Fab Everyday is how to have more fabulousness in the everyday.  It's balancing real life with style and accessible luxury.  

Now that I'm in the market for a new car myself, this balance naturally extends to my choice in a new vehicle.  Function and style are of equal importance to me.  A car is such a piece of one's identity, that I need to feel good about what I drive, inside and out.  But it still needs to work in my lifestyle as a busy working mom with an active family.  Last week I got to attend the DFW Auto Show with Kia Motors to get behind the wheel of some of their vehicles.  To me, this was an opportunity to get a closer experience of their more luxurious models, and get a feel for how they'd work in my everyday life.  I'm excited to share what I learned in the process!

Trees and you – why are they so important?

I have worked in collaboration with one of our partners to provide you with the below post.

Not a day goes by when we’re not reminded of the impact we humans are having on the Earth and the environment. And with more and more of us taking our carbon footprints into our own hands and making daily changes to our lives to create less waste, use less fossil fuels and even changing our diets – I thought we’d go back to basics and find out why the trees, forests and woodlands around us are so important.

If you want to include more trees in your garden then checkout this website

After all, we want to leave a sustainable future behind for our children to enjoy, don’t we?

Have him slip into something more comfortable this Valentine's Day



Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

Warning: potentially-embarrassing and possibly-TMI topic ahead!  Valentine's Day is almost here, and us girls are being hit with lingerie sale ads from every direction.  While I personally like getting myself a little something that makes me feel sexy (not just for my man, but for myself), a question has recently occurred to me: why is it just on the woman in the relationship to don something sexy for her partner on V-Day?  I say let's ask him to slip into something more comfortable for our enjoyment and objectification!


Ladies and gentlemen, let's get real for a moment.  Not only do our male partners have a preference for their underwear (is your man a tighty-whitey guy?  A boxer Joe?  An efficient boxer brief dude?  Or does he go commando?), but we do, too.  Fortunately my hubby and I are on the same page.  He is a boxer brief guy, and I have to admit that I think he looks great (wink wink) in them.

The Ultimate UK Road Trip Itinerary - Driving Around England, Scotland, and Wales with the Family


Last summer the #FabFam had a journey to seek some family and personal history in the U.K.  This could only be accomplished by taking a two-week road trip around the UK.  We began in London, spent the weekend in the countryside in Devon with some good friends, drove through Wales to seek dragons and castles, spent a few days in Liverpool and Manchester, explored the Scottish Highlands (including searching for the mysterious Loch Ness Monster), spent one family-friendly day in Edinburgh, and then came back down the eastern coast to loop back towards London. 
 
Thank you for following along with our journey.  Today I am sharing the itinerary for a U.K. road trip, including recommendations on where to stay during a UK road trip, the top cities to see when traveling to England, Scotland, and Wales, what we found to be the best places to eat during a road trip through the UK, as well as reviews, recommendations, and tips for the best activities for kids during a family road trip from England to Wales and Scotland. 
 
Day 1: Arrive in London
Begin: London, England
End: London, England
