FlapJack Bauer

I've made a lot of pancakes for the kids. This one is for my wife. My friend Karl suggested "FlapJack-O-Lantern." This is inspired by his use of flapjack and my wife's obsession with "24."

Michael Wilson's Pancake

Pancake fan and friend Michael Wilson sent in: Saturn And 61 Moons. It is very high on my list of favorite pancakes ever.

I know the count isn't right. He has assured me that a number of the moons are obscured by the planet.

Taco Platter

Buenos dias! Its time for breakfast!

Who doesn't love a little maple syrup on their refried beans?

No beans, no cheese, no lettuce, no meat, not even a tomato. This is 100% pancake.

Leggo My Eggo!

"Dude, I told you. Leggo my Eggo!"

Look, I'm topical! Apparently, due to problems at a couple of waffle plants, there will be a shortage of Eggo waffles until summer.

Thanks to Guinness Book of World Records holder of the title, "Man with the largest head" Mike Mooreland for the suggestion. I would like to mention that this is an actual Eggo waffle.

Marshmallow Me

Salon.com has a weekly funny food contest. This week they're asking, "What do you drink during the holidays to relax when you're done with the work?"

My answer is hot chocolate. I know. Not very exotic. I do use the really good hot chocolate if that's any help.

I don't drink any alcoholic beverages. They all remind me of the hospital. Not because of some horrible drinking and driving accident thing. Its the smell. Ick. Who wants a drink that smells like something you'd pour on an open wound? So, smell and the way people behave when drunk keep me away from the stuff.

Here's the thing though. I'm a foodie. I thought it was something I was missing out on so I tried to learn to drink wine. I found myself doing that little kid "horrible taste" whole body shake trying to get it down. I've tried enough. I can confidently say there has never been a glass of wine as good as strawberry Kool-Aid.

Amanda Havlik's Pancake Art

This was a big weekend. I received pancakes from 3 viewers.

Amanda didn't name hers but I'm thinking "The Bunny and Mr. Bill."

Here they are in their last moment before the Great Syrup Flood of 2009.

Heather Turner's Food Coloring Pancake Experiment

I've been assured this is NOT left overs from enchilada night but a bunch of colored pancakes cut up.

I've added food coloring to pancake batter but never with as much color commitment as Heather.

With these colors... well, I can't wait to make pancake tacos. I like the "food that looks like other food" category.

The First Viewer Pancakes!

Sean Kernick sent in a pile of pancakes that would make his mother and Nickelodeon proud. Thank you Sean.

If he's got kids, they're really enjoying breakfast. If not, he's a zombie by now. The only chance of surviving Dora the Explorer (Does she know it doesn't rhyme?) is in watching your kids watch it.

Mouse Trap

Autobiographical pancake number one.

Events from my life.

Note to my wife: These are literal pancakes, not metaphorical.

Mario Pixel Waffle

Fruit, nuts, banana, frosting and two yellow M&Ms. Like me, it looks better if you stand a long way back.

This took a lot of waffles.
