One of Kora & Logan’s favorite food is peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. They eat them nearly every day. We love using Welch’s Jelly for our pb&j sandwiches. We always have two bottles in our refrigerator ready to go at any time. The four of us enjoy both the Concord Grape and Strawberry flavors. They are delicious and I like the Welch’s Natural Spreads because they contain no high fructose syrup, no artificial colors or flavors, and no preservatives.

Welch's JellyLast night for dinner, I thought it would be fun to combine two of Kora & Logan’s favorite foods and made Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes!

Kora & Logan love to help out in the kitchen and I always enjoy cooking with them. Here’s a sneak peek at the three of us in action:

The kids did a great job and the pancakes came out amazing! While I had an inkling they might be good, we were all blown away at just how delicious they were. Kora even said, “Oh boy, are these yummy!” It was such a simple recipe and so flavorful & fun, that I can’t wait to make them again!
