Day 1 - Rainbow Pancakes

My month of pinning, cooking, and blogging has started off with a bang!! I got up this morning so excited to be starting on my personal challenge project and having fun all month long.  I decided that since we have church activities, work, and school all day on Wednesdays, the perfect way to start this little challenge was with a fun breakfast recipe. 

 I used this recipe for old fashioned pancakes and added food coloring.  Here is where I pinned the idea, but the original idea came from  This is my first attempt at cooking and photographing it, so hopefully it will get a little better as we go along.

My little helper, B.  He loves to make coffee for me in the mornings. 
 Just one more minute, Mom!
 Ingredients I forgot to take a pic with the flour in there, but yes, the time does say 6:39. 
No wonder I forgot the flour pic.
 Dry Ingredients after being sifted
 I added the egg, milk, and melted butter. 
( Make sure your butter isn't still really hot or it will cook the egg)
 I divided my batter into 4 bowls and added food coloring, this was the blue one.
 (I added more blue food coloring after this picture was taken to get a brighter color in the end)
 The blue ones cooking on my griddle.  Aren't they pretty?
(By this point, B was dancing around the kitchen and very excited about eating colorful pancakes)
 Alyssa's finished plate with the little pats of butter and swirly syrup.
B's finished plate.  He said his was a "mixed-up rainbow on a plate." 
Gotta love that kid and what he comes up with.

All in all, I would call this first day a rousing success.  Both kids were happy, David liked them, and they were made with love.  I may make some red heart ones for Valentine's Day breakfast.
