My sister the other day was sorely disappointed that I had breakfast items missing from my food recipes, and I agree with her. The things is, my favorite breakfast items are not cooked by me so I forget to pester who make them for the recipes so I can post them. Well folks, the wait is over. Breakfast is making its appearance on Fatty Bear’s Delights and we are starting with….

PANCAKES!!!

Ordinarily, I am not a huge fan of pancakes…I’m more of a waffle girl., but I have a friend who makes the most wonderful pancakes and always finds the most unique recipes to work with or he comes up with them off the top if his head. I like to think he’s a pancake genius. His pancakes reduce me to becoming something like this duck…

Either A…pestering for pancakes at every moment….
