Good morning BJ,

Good Morning! Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks for coming by and leaving me a note! Yah, me to, just pick the blossoms, maybe pull the petals off if they are intact and leave some intact - spread on newspaper and dry. Mom had given me the frame ... seemed like a good idea? Only one I've framed. I think I have to try those pancakes, I may...hmmm. Looks good. BUT that baby and her glee is, well, it's THE BEST! THanks, Jenn

Say It With Roses said...

Happy Pink Saturday!
Isn't this just the best time of year? Strawberries, flowers and being with family OUTSIDE!
Your little Cate is a cutie for sure!

Hey -I did fix the German Pancake. I was curious when I realized no sugar or vanilla goes into them...I used a 10" skillet and I beat the dough w/my hand mixer (instead of the blender Marty suggested). At 15 mins they were thick...really thick and bready looking. I didn't get that light crusty top that looks a little like french bread crust. Do you hand mix yours? Oh, they are tasty. My strawberries went fuzzy so I went for frozen blueberries and powdered sugar. I could almost taste them w/whipping cream...that woulda been great! :) Thanks, Jenn

Valrie said...

Love that strawberry dessert! This is the first time I have visited your blog and will be back often.
I have a Mother's Day giveaway going on and it is free to enter.

I would love to network and make new friends!

Mizz Cate gonna be a heartbreaker :-). What a sweet child! Your post is, as always, beautiful. You asked about Swedish pancakes. They are lighter and thinner than those we have for breakfast here. There are a ton of recipes for them on the net. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

BJ, What adorable pictures of Cate. You captured such great expressions in your photos. She is a doll. Those pancakes and strawberries look fabulous. I think if I took a bite of that, it would become one of my favorite things too. Thank you so much for linking up. laurie

Happy Pink Saturday BJ Sweetie...

What a beautiful share today. I love the pictures of your sweet baby. Just precious for sure. That third one, her little face as sweet Auntie is coming back. Priceless.

Love those strawberries. We have been picking up some beautiful ones at the market as well. I have never had one of these pancakes you have shared. Would so love one though. And a cherry one. Well you know me and cherries. I love anything cherry. I would love if you shared the recipe sweetie. You always make the most scrumptous looking foods. Makes me want to pop on over.

Hope you are having a beautiful Pink Saturday and a wonderful May Day. May you day be filled with happiness and sunshine.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
