The last several years have been devastating for me. I fled an abusive marriage which lasted 30 years. I thought things would get better and in some ways they did, but leaving an abusive person is the most difficult thing anyone can do (well in my opinion).

Okay so I did something amazing this morning. I made up a formula for pancakes that will be my go to formula from now on. My son asked me to name them after him and my daughter, who won’t eat pancakes, helped herself to a full plate after tasting a bite. She said, “How did you make these taste so good?” Continue reading Whitley’s Pancakes (Cream Cakes)
