Veggie Pancakes .....Say What??

Yep Veggie Pancakes and they are GOOOOOOD! I am esp. loving the fact that my 1 yr old who is starting to take after her sister's pickyness absolutely LoVeD these! Of course she liked them dipped in ketchup did I! lol
I am often searching for kid friendly meals that will introduce or lure my girls to more veggies but most sites I come accross that offer kids friendly recipes, I look at the recipe and say...."Are you kidding me?? My daughter would not touch that with a ten foot pole even WITH that happy face design on top!!" Maybe my household is just an extreme case of the pickys but with some of the recipes I see I would pay money to actually see a kid sit there enjoying those meals!!

One websight I do have SOME luck with for meal ideas is  don't get me wrong, many of her recipes are fantastic, but I see them as recipes I would enjoy more and not so much the girls.....

So back to the Veggie Pancakes! I made these the other night and while my 4 yr old still turned her nose at them, my 1 yr old ate 3 of them! So one out of two kid approved is a winner in my book!
