It rarely snows in southern California, so we have to get our wintery groove on some other way.

Snowman Pancakes seem like a great way! These would be wonderful as Christmas breakfast, or any day.

Snowman Pancakes with Cam

This is our friend Cam, the morning after a sleepover with my son.

I’m betting he’ll be sleeping over again soon!

These are so easy they don’t need a recipe, but I’ll give you a helping hand:
