I’m such a sucker for a decadent pancakes. Iced pancakes?! Talk about a treat. Please note, pure maple syrup is great too
I used a family favorite dessert, “blueberry crumble” as the inspiration for my pancakes today. I thought, why not make them into pancakes? I added my favorite vanilla granola to the pancake batter which gives that great “crumble” texture throughout. Bursts of blueberries with each bite make these pancakes a real treat.
Hope you enjoy!

This frosting was so amazing I decided to give it it’s own post, lol! Not kidding. If I wasn’t on this fitness challenge I would have scooped up a little bowl of just frosting for an afternoon snack. Ideally, this frosting is for my cupcakes I teased you with on Instagram HERE. The entire recipe will be here this week.

There’s something about a giant stack of pancakes that makes my heart so happy. Syrup dripping down the sides, I just died, lol!
Not kidding when I say these are one of the best pancakes I’ve had. Bites of banana with swirls of Nutella throughout make for one heck of a breakfast. Do yourself a favor and whip up a stack today.

I was going to wait until later this month to kick off pumpkin everything, but I was so excited that I caved! There is nothing quite like Fall Baking. The house smells like a dream, the treats and food are pure comfort.
It all started when I found those darn Pumpkin Spice M and M’s at Target last week. I couldn’t help myself so I made a fun batch of cookies with them.

Lots of fun going on in my house right now. My husband and I joined 12 other couples in our area for a fun 8 week fitness challenge. Maybe I should delete the word fun, lol!
For 8 weeks we’ll be challenged to earn daily points in 5 categories. Check out this website for all of the details
Each couple put in $40 and there are prizes at the end for those with the most points. We are on week two and so far so good. I stuck to my allowed 3 sweets for the week and I will say it was pretty challenging. Yesterday, I baked some cookies that will be posted next week and I was tempted …

Had the best time visiting Del Monte farms and cannery in Modesto, CA last month. Had the privilege of meeting some of the Del Monte staff, their farmers along with touring the factory, peach and tomato farms with 5 other food bloggers from across the country. Del Monte delighted us with this refreshing Peach Sorbet to get our morning started.

What a treat to tour the cannery where many of Del Monte’s fruit products are packaged and prepared for the shelves. Here’s a shot of the canned peaches almost done.

Oh how I love slower cooker recipes here at Picky Palate. I plan on doing more of these but today we’ve brought you a favorable, simple chicken slow cooker recipe that will be sure to knock your socks off.
With school in full swing, I am all over breaking out my crock pot more often. Between homework and sports starting, mama just doesn’t have much time in the kitchen these days! I love the thought of starting dinner in the morning then having it ready when the kids get home from school.
