As 2013 comes to a close, today our Sunday Supper cooks reflect on what comes naturally this time of year — thoughts about the year that has passed and resolutions for the coming year.

I share with everyone else what is probably the usual litany of resolutions — more exercise, healthier eating, less procrastination, more order in my life — but those are mundane matters.

As I ponder 2013, I realize the single take-home message of the year for me is simplicity. When I simplified this past year — in whatever areas possible — invariably there were improvements.

I certainly saw it in my recipe creation and inspiration. The fewer ingredients I used, the more pure the idea and flavors, the better the resulting dish. So today, I’m heeding that lesson and offering a simple recipe for Snowman Eggnog Pancakes.

We use packaged baking mix and commercially made eggnog to make it easy, and we simply pour the pancake batter so it touches while they’re on the griddle for a fanciful snowman shape. A couple of extra items for buttons and a scarf (you can buy already cooked bacon if you wish!), and you’re on your way to a memorable holiday or New Year’s Day breakfast.

Happy New Year everyone!

Recipe: Snowman Eggnog Pancakes

Summary: Snowman Eggnog Pancakes are charming, whimsical and perfect for wintery days or a holiday breakfast. Who can resist?


  • Baking mix (I used Bisquick Heart Smart)
  • Eggnog (I used a low-fat version)
  • Eggs
  • Chocolate chips
  • Cooked bacon strips
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. Heat stovetop griddle.
  2. Mix the pancake batter following the package directions, using as many eggs as called for in the amount you are making, and substituting eggnog for the milk called for in the recipe.
  3. Pour pancake batter onto the hot griddle in 2 circles that touch (one will be the body, one will be the head, so make the head slightly smaller if you wish).
  4. Cook as usual for pancakes, flipping over when bubbles appear. Feel free to use 2 spatulas to take care that the head and body don’t separate.
  5. Place on plate, position a bacon strip as the scarf, chocolate chips as the eyes, nose and buttons, and mini marshmallows as the snow upon which he stands.
  6. Eat with gusto!

Those are too cute!


Maureen | Orgasmic Chef December 29, 2013 at 3:12 pm

These are so cute! What a way to start a day for a kid. Who could be in a bad mood after a pancake like this?

I’m all for de-stressing in 2014. Happy New Year!

These pancakes are so cute and would surely brighten any day!

Ah, those are so adorable!! We also share the same simplicity motto, great to hear I’m not the only one who needs to slow down and keep it a bit more simple.

I love your goal of simplicity in 2014. It is something we would like to work on too. So much that clutters our lives isn’t important and distracts us from what really is.


Hezzi-D December 29, 2013 at 10:43 am

Those look adorable and so easy! I’m all for making things simple in the new year. Happy New Year!

What a tasty and cute idea! Happy New Year, Dorothy! Can’t wait to see what you come up with in 2014!


The Wimpy Vegetarian December 29, 2013 at 9:16 am

I am all for keeping things easy in 2014. Or at least move in that direction. Or at least think about it. OK, I think you see my problem here. I really need to commit to it. I love these pancakes. Our grandchildren are visiting us in Tahoe in a couple of weeks, and this would be a perfect breakfast before skiing.


Cathy | She Paused 4 Thought December 29, 2013 at 9:10 am

Absolutely adorable. Happy New Year Dorothy!


Courtney @ Neighborfood December 29, 2013 at 8:55 am

Simplicity is a great reminder for me as well. So often the best things in life are the simple things. These are absolutely adorable. Such a fun idea!


Heather @ The Soulful Spoon December 29, 2013 at 7:49 am
