Breakfast for the Bandwith Bandit


I've been playing again.

Kitchen experiments are more fun when the kitchen is wrecked. So, this morning, when Young Bandwith requested pancakes, I leaped at the opportunity.

Right off the bat, he asked for "normal" pancakes, which was a good idea, because of the inevitable bloopers. After I sprayed the cookie cutters with Pam, the troubled ended.


Butterflies for Bandwith's Second Breakfast


Buttery butterflies garnished with chocolate chips.


Our Araucana chickens lay blue eggs (which has nothing whatsoever to do with pancakes, but I wanted you to see it).




Milk & Pancakes = Happy Bandwith

  1. That is just such a great idea to cut the pancakes out with a cookie cutter. I love the shapes, and the blue eggs are unreal. Hugs, Marty

  5. Evening, Dear Gollum. Now you must be so careful - I think you're smelling too many sugar fumes! lol

  6. So, do your chickens have blue ears? Martha once said chickens have ears and the color of their ears are the color of their eggs. I've done the pancake thing for years. Hearts, trains, cars, trucks, dogs, , but Jacob is a connoisseur of maple syrup and only the "real" syrup will do. ~ Robyn

  7. Linda, check the 5th picture. Click on it, and it should enlarge. The egg is faintly blue-green.
    Shelia, he ate 'em all!
    Now he's wanting sea bass...but I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto. (Translates to: No sea bass at Publix. Prolly.)

  10. I will certainly try these on my grandkids the next time they spend the night over the week-end. They are all so cute; and the egg never saw anything like this.

  20. okay, so I really only eat the "normal" shaped pancakes b/c I'm almost 30, but I really like your dishes :)

  21. Young Bandwith is one lucky guy! He gets to be your test taster .. how great is that?

  22. Very cute idea! I blogged about star shaped pancakes I made with Williams Sonoma molds I bought on sale recently. Now I'll have to try cookie cutters :-)

  23. ....and here I thought I was being creative when I use to make 'blue berry Happy Faces' for my children. You have the patiences of a 'Saint' girl!

    Now what's this about using Mrs. Butterworth. You do know, if you were a Canadian you would be breaking the law and end up in jail. Here it is a criminal offense if you use anything but REAL CANADIAN MAPLE SYRUP.

  27. What a great idea for Children! If I only had a few of those little grand kiddos- my 2 boys keep telling me to not count on becoming a grandma ma!

    I guess I'll just have to adopt some!!

    Oh I love your blue eggs! I have a girlfriend who gives me fresh eggs here and there and I just love all the colors and sizes!

  28. G, just got home from Welaka, Fl. and had I KNOWN young Bandwith wanted sea bass I could have helped you out. We were on the St. John's River and BASS are abundant there! So are shrimp, we had alot of shrimp! This is such a wonderful, motherly post: I remember when my kids were little and my daughter wanted something different every morning...she LOVED breakfast foods! Still does! And your PRESENTATION is outstanding as usual! Wonderful plates! What an experience it would be to be a guest at CHEZ GOLLUM!!!!!!!!!!! LOve, Pinky

  30. You have really had a creative food splurge lately! I hope my husband doesn't see these posts. My food just looks so plain! I just never thought of serving my family cute food! of course, mine would not turn out this pretty, and they'd be asking what that funny looking food was supposed to be. laurie

  33. Yum! It's all beautiful -- how do you make food look too good to eat and yet at the same time impossible to resist? It's pancakes for dinner in this house tonight!

  34. I popped over from the sidebar to see this one again. Love those dishes and the cookie cutter pancakes. I tried to make a new recipe of pancakes this weekend. Batter was too thick, then I thought I'd try forming them in rings. Only I forgot to spray the rings with oil. ;-(
    Yep, I threw it all out. Back to regular pancakes for me. :-)
