Jaden is totally mesmerized with dinosaurs right now. From books to movies to toys, the boy just loves dinosaurs.

So, I decided to come up with a fun new recipe for kids. And why not make one of Jaden's favorite things to eat in one of his favorite character shapes…. Dinosaur Pancakes. 

These Strawberry Buttermilk Dinosaur Pancakes were a bit tedious to make…. Dan and I worked on them together. But it was so worth it seeing Jaden's face.

      • Christy, lol! Yep, cookie cutters, which I guess I should have explained you can get on Amazon for pretty cheap. Aw, I’m a little speechless…. thanks, Christy. That’s one of the nicest compliments I’ve ever gotten.

        • Well, it would be, only I’d have to grow down because well, I grew up (OK not up but OLD) way before you. Seriously doing this over the weekend though. And I’m a huge fan. HUGE. But you knew that.
