We've been learning to live a little simpler as of late, which even happens to cut into our weekly brunches. Today we decided to wake up a little earlier and make some Bongo Room worthy red velvet pancakes (with a side of bacon, of course) right from home. And you know what? They were absolutely delicious. But what's even greater than not having to whip out your debit card at the end of your meal is spending time in the kitchen with the people I love, including Sofia! One of her new favorite things is to sit in the sling while I cook... we just have to start being more careful now as she just figured out she can use her hands to, you know, grab things and other fun things like that!
