They provide the perfect canvas to showcase the season's best offerings -- berries in the summertime, pumpkin in the fall -- and they give you an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast. What could be better? Whip up a big batch this weekend. These links will show you how.

Best tip for perfect pancakes? Add lots of vanilla, and a dash of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg or allspice -- not enough of either to taste individually. The other tips from the links cover the subject really well.

We always warm our maple syrup and blueberries in syrup (the ones I can, using berries just picked from our bushes) right before serving. ;o)
