{back 2 basics} craftaholics anonymous

Welcome to Back to Basics!  


September has long been one of my most favorite months, and as a little girl I LOVED school.  Nothing was more exciting to me than choosing a new outfit, packing my backpack and lunch, organizing my supplies, and heading out the door on that first day of school.  Since my son started school, I've felt the same way as a mom.  Can I just tell you how much I enjoy walking up and down the aisles of school supplies?  :)  

This month I'm delighted to present to you some of the most talented bloggers around, as they give you great tips, tutorials, ideas, and recipes for back to school days.  

First up?  Please welcome  the adorable Linda, from Craftaholics Anonymous!

Thank you for having me over today, Kierste! Hi everyone! My name is Linda and I'm a Craftaholic. I'm a regular at Craftaholics Anonymous, so stop by and say hi!

I'm excited to share a family with you today that we use for special occasions......and the first day of school is a very special day! My 2 little guys are too little for school yet {phew!}, but when they get older, I can imagine myself making them these chocolate pancakes for them as a little pep talk for that nerve racking first day of school.

Chocolate Chocolate Pancakes
1 2/3 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled (do not substitute)
1 1/4 cups milk

In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add chocolate chips. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and vanilla. Add the melted butter, then milk, and continue to blend. Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly. The batter should be about the consistency of a really good milkshake (yes, the recipe does say that!) Cook pancakes on a griddle or skillet over medium heat.

I like to top them with fresh strawberries and whip cream. These are a sure hit at our home!

Hope you enjoyed this delish little recipe! I hope you'll stop by Craftaholics Anonymous and say hi! I know you would love my t-shirt pom poms or my headboard makeover {on the cheap!}.

happy crafting!



Thank you so much, Linda--what a fun and delicious way to start the first day of school off right!

I may not have any little ones at home, but I have a couple of "always learning" adults who will definitely enjoy the pancakes. Thanks.
