Strawberry Brown Sugar Pancakes

25 Sep
When I was a little girl I would wake up 
to the sound to loud old school music blasting on the surround 
sound system and the aroma of something yummy for my tummy :) 
My dad would spend Saturday and Sunday mornings making 
breakfast for our family. Even though we would be annoyed by
the sound of the loud music waking up, we couldn't wait for
breakfast. I remember sneaking into the kitchen to sneak a 
piece of bacon when daddy wasn't looking. At least I thought 
he wasn't looking. :) He was so busy making his ginormous 
pancakes! Daddy made the biggest pancakes I had ever seen. We 
usually couldn't even eat a whole one, they were that big.
With daddy running through my mind, I decided to get up early 
in the morning and make some. Daddy usually made traditional 
pancakes but I decided I was going to do something a little 
different this time. Strawberries are my favorite fruit so I 
figured what better way to use them. I made Strawberry Brown 
Sugar Pancakes. I am still working on making my pancakes the 
same size. That will probably take a couple trial runs but hey, 
they say PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT right?!?
