Dear Friend,

I am about to share with you a recipe that has brought my dad joy throughout his life. Seriously, there is something about pancakes that seems to give my dad a reason to live. Ok, now that may seem a bit extreme, but you haven’t seen him on an empty beach calling my uncle to sarcastically to complain about the lack of pancakes, or calling after having had pancakes to brag about it. And both types of occasions have happened multiple times.

Love, Mandi Jo
