I totally agree that you can get bogged down and overwhelmed with all the things there is to learn but if you pick and choose and do what you can and what you have time for , you will still advance and have fun with it and learn new things :)

Have to admit, the design and layout aspect of blogging is the one I have done the least with on my end - it keeps getting pushed off to the side when I pick what I have time to do.

Agreed re: not comparing yourself to others. As for the "haters", fortunately haven't met them yet - but am still pretty new to this, so maybe they're still coming...
Cherise,
Thanks. We love the blog name too.
Stacy,
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy those pumpkin recipes.
Hello Babygatedown,

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
