Simple Dish – Simply Delish!

I love a nice warm breakfast on the weekends that tastes great and provides me with the right amount of protein to keep my muscles burning fat throughout the day. Great for dinner, too. Make the pancakes in advance, keep refrigerated and create a quick breakfast during the week, too.
