Taste of Fall...

Pumpkin Pancakes!

So, since Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, 
and along with Fall comes lots of yummy recipes,
those of my favorite being made with pumpkin or squash,
I thought I would do some 
"Taste of Fall" posts 
where I share my favorite Fall Time recipes, most of which are a wonderful way 
to use up the pumpkin and squash that we have in abundance this time of the year!
Today's featured recipe is Pumpkin Pancakes...

I really don't think I have had a more tasty breakfast pancake than this yummy recipe.
My kids and hubby were WOWed  
over by them and we can't seem to get enough of these
light, fluffy, full of flavor, perfect and delicious pancakes.

(I just wish we had LOTS more pumpkin/squash than what we do,
so we could enjoy these ALL throughout the year, they are that good!)
