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!
