Recipe – Kidlicious Banana Pancakes

Maple Syrup on PancakesPancakes have long been a staple at the breakfast table, both on and off site.  Some people like syrup on them, others prefer butter, and many more have their own ideas about how pancakes should be best eaten.

Recipe: Savory Grilled Asparagus
