loaded potato wedges

Loaded potato wedges are bursting with flavor! They are so delicious everyone in my house goes crazy over them. Fair warning though, they are highly addictive and hard to eat just a few.

Summer Berry Protein Pancake Bites

As a busy mama, breakfast can be a struggle. Breakfasts high in protein are a goal for me so I know my kiddos and I have enough brain food to last us til lunch. These summer berry protein pancake bites are perfect because they are SUPER quick to make, they have an extra boost of protein, and they have a wonderful flavor thanks to the berries.

We make a large batch to freeze leftovers for easy reheating in the microwave on busy mornings. All we do is allow them to cool completely, package up 5-6 summer berry protein pancake bites per sandwich bag, and store all of the sandwich bags in a gallon freezer ziploc bag. Then just pop it in the freezer!

I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have a hot protein packed breakfast ready for the kiddos by just popping a few on a plate from the freezer and microwaving them for 1 minute. No syrup needed thanks to the berries, so its mess free! It really doesnt get better than that for me,
