Weekend breakfasts are a real treat at our house and I try to make pancakes at least once a week. No Bisquick here--after getting a buttermilk pancake recipe from Martha Stewart, I realized how easy it was to make them from scratch. It's been a few years and I thought that maybe my pancake-skills were ready to be tested. Introduce the ebelskiver pan from Williams-Sonoma...the Danish-inspired filled pancakes are awesome! My first batch was a little burnt, but after a little practice I turned out perfectly golden orbs. The beauty is, they can be filled with sweet or savory fillings. I've included a recipe for the batter, below. It's a little more work than simple pancake batter, but whipping up the egg whites separately results in a light and fluffy batter that makes it all worth it.

I have been obsessed with doing a feature wall somewhere in my house using reclaimed lath. Turns out that a lot of free lath is available from demolitions. I'm still trying to convince Darren to let me drive into a slightly sketchy neighborhood in Baltimore to pick some up!

The relationship between siblings can teach you about unconditional love sometimes. Grace wants so much to be just like her big sister, even if the feeling isn't returned all the time. Sophie makes a "car" out of two chairs and Grace does the same, parking her car right next to her big sister's.

1. Savor the time I have with my kids, and not rush through the day.
2. Drink more green juice. Ideally once a day.
3. Walk. Ideally at least 30 minutes a day.
4. Do more reading. I'd like to read 30 books in 2012. I think I can do it!
