Happy Valentine's Day! We're all home for snow day #2 this week, but our snowfamily from yesterday is melting fast on this sunny, 45 degree day.
This recipe makes a big batch of pancakes, which I love because they freeze so well. A couple of these pancakes from the freezer would make any old Monday a special day. However, if you're freezer is stocked chock-full already, the recipe can easily be halved.
