“German Pancake”

What a beautiful October Friday!

It is such a PERFECT day for a knee replacement!

Seriously, my sweet grandmother, whom my family lovingly calls, “Nanny,” is getting her second knee replacement today.  So in honor of her, I bring you a super special recipe.

When I was a little girl, I loved my grandparent’s house.  I remember those childhood days so clearly…

I am trying to find peace with laundry, I really am.  It is never ending.  When you have a baby, a three-year-old and a husband who seems to change his clothes at least twice a day, the cycle never stops.  I don’t know about you other moms, but do you ever feel like when you are folding your family’s clothes, you have the fewest items in the pile? Strange. Maybe it’s because I wear the same thing everyday:  at work I wear scrubs and at home I wear workout-type pants/sweats, which is the most practical (or maybe the mere thought of wearing jeans or anything that doesn’t have an elastic waistband sends chills down my spine…Ha).
