Happy Faces I Can See

December 4, 2010


Did you hear Larbs + Matt’s news!?!?! Congrats to Matt!!! So excited they’ll be moving to Durham, and of course Duke is close to my heart.


Today, we feasted on pancakes.

Buttermilk + Honey Kodiak Cakes to be specific! I loved the flavor! The buttermilk was detectable and tangy. These are still whole grain – just have buttermilk instead of milk in the dry mix. Hope to have a deal for you when they debut into OpenSky!


Matt, the master mixer, was in charge this morning

The four flavors included:

  • Plain
  • Banana Flax (my fav!)
  • Chocolate Peanut
  • Cranberry Coconut

Topping with a tsp each of:

  • Hazelnut butter
  • Sunflower butter
  • Nat. Nutty Pepita Cinnamon Vanilla






Happy Saturday!

You must be so excited to have your sister moving closer to you! I’m jealous– my sister and I are twenty hours away from each other, and I miss her so much!


2 Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun December 4, 2010 at 9:49 am

I love pancake breakfasts on Saturday mornings. It’s just the perfect start to a weekend. And what a fabulous idea on doing a bunch of different varieties in smaller pancakes.


3 Kelly December 4, 2010 at 9:53 am

That’s great that Larbs is moving to NC! :)


4 Amanda (Eating Up) December 4, 2010 at 10:03 am

Ah I would LOVE for my sister be that close to me! Yay for you and Larbs!


5 Amanda (Eating Up) December 4, 2010 at 10:03 am

And Matt of course! :-)


6 Kaci December 4, 2010 at 10:03 am

Congrats to your sis and Matt!

Your pancakes always have me Mmmmming. :)


7 Amanda December 4, 2010 at 10:16 am

Yum! Where do you buy our Kodiak Cakes? I’ve only found the Kodiak brownies and oatmeal cookie mixes.


8 Kath December 4, 2010 at 10:24 am

Why OpenSky, of course


9 Amanda December 4, 2010 at 10:30 am

ok thanks again! I will deff have to order some soon!


10 Stacy @ Every Little Thing December 4, 2010 at 10:16 am

I’m still working on enjoying a bunch of flavors mixed together. Today I tried to put peanut butter on my pumpkin muffin and I just couldn’t do it, but I really enjoyed eating them separately! haha

The pancakes look delish!


11 Balanced Healthy Life December 4, 2010 at 10:17 am

Great looking pancakes! I love that you put banana in them to make them extra delish!


12 Camille December 4, 2010 at 10:18 am

Chocolate in pancakes? There is no way you can go wrong :)


13 Janet December 4, 2010 at 10:24 am

I have a question: why is your opensky shop so expensive? I find the prices really outrageous, even with sales, for the products listed. Just wondering if you could shed some light on this…


14 Kath December 4, 2010 at 10:25 am

Because specialty products aren’t cheap? They are all fairly priced against other online sites as well. I don’t pick the prices – the companies who sell them do.


15 FoodCents December 4, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Some of the items can be found cheaper on other sites, which also often offer free shipping. That said, some of the items in OS can only be found there.


16 Blog is the New Black December 4, 2010 at 10:25 am

Those are some might fine looking flap jacks!


17 Valerie @ City|Life|Eats December 4, 2010 at 10:31 am

Yum. I really need to get myself on a gluten-free pancake run. I keep meaning to (since I had to switch to gluten-free eating) but have not yet gotten around to it.


18 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey December 4, 2010 at 10:31 am

Yay for your sister and her hubby! It’s always so nice to have family near. Those pancakes look delicious!


19 Estela @ Weekly Bite December 4, 2010 at 10:35 am

Those reindeers are too cute!


20 A Teenage Gourmet (Sami) December 4, 2010 at 10:39 am

Mmm. I had Buttermilk French Toast today. It was perfect for a snowy morning!


21 Amy December 4, 2010 at 10:48 am

Congratulations Matt! Fuqua is a great school. And those pancakes look so tasty – I guess I know what I’m having for brunch tomorrow …


22 Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle December 4, 2010 at 10:53 am

I’m making pancakes tomorrow and I can’t wait b/c I have been craving them for so long!!!!


23 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) December 4, 2010 at 11:01 am

I would have a happy face if I was eating those pancakes too :)


24 Lauren at KeepItSweet December 4, 2010 at 11:05 am

those pancakes look delicious! perfect way to start a weekend!!


25 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table December 4, 2010 at 11:08 am

Banana pancakes are my favorite! I usually mash them into the batter, but will have to try the slices. This looks easier and I love how bananas caramelize when grilled.


26 Scully December 4, 2010 at 11:12 am

I just bought a box of these at Big Lots. It was three dollars. The flap jacks were a big hit with me and my boys!


27 Food & Other Things December 4, 2010 at 11:15 am

I’ve always wanted to try Kodiak Cakes…your pancakes look delicious!


28 Tabitha (From Single to Married) December 4, 2010 at 11:19 am

oh, those pancakes look AMAZING!


29 Jennifer @ Frost BItes December 4, 2010 at 11:29 am

Love those coconuts flakes. Congrats to your sis and Matt!


30 andrea December 4, 2010 at 11:30 am

My heart belongs to Kodiak!!


31 JessicaE December 4, 2010 at 11:34 am

I’m glad that its out (although I found it obvious) that YOU don’t pick the prices Kath :) In fact, if one does their research, the prices in your shop are lower than some other online places AND you have great deals for us. I know that those deals have made it possible for me to be able to afford luxury products that i otherwise couldn’t have. xo.

Have loved your blog for nearly three years now, but rarely comment. Have a lovely Christmas!


32 Kath December 4, 2010 at 2:05 pm



33 Clare @ Fitting It All In December 4, 2010 at 11:41 am

Where can i get some of that stuff?? Looks AWESOME. Always looking for good decaf drinks!


34 Natalia - a side of simple December 4, 2010 at 11:46 am

Those reindeer are so neat. They’re so classy and elegant! Now excuse me while I go make some pancakes, though yours will undoubtedly put mine to shame 😉


35 Christine (The Raw Project) December 4, 2010 at 11:55 am

Wow, the pancakes look fabulous and easily top my smoothie this morning. :-)


36 Allie December 4, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Mmmm! I had blue berry pancakes for dinner last night, I love breakfast for dinner :p. Happy Saturday Kath 😀


37 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 4, 2010 at 12:31 pm

That’s such great news for Larbs and Matt! And you must be so excited to have your sister moving nearby!

I’ve had a box of pancake mix sitting unopened in my cupboard since the summer because I’m just too lazy to make them in the mornings! Think Matt would want to come make them for me? 😛


38 Simply Life December 4, 2010 at 12:33 pm

oooh all those flavors sound delish!


39 Cathy B. @ Bright Bakes December 4, 2010 at 12:55 pm

I have pancake envy. A lot.

42 Lee @ College Foodie Finds December 4, 2010 at 2:25 pm

My mouth is watering, these looks scrumptious! I think I could eat breakfast every single meal of the day.I Love the variety this morning with 4 different flavors! Creative!!


43 Mary @ Bites and Bliss December 4, 2010 at 3:17 pm

Ohh pancakes, it’s been too long!


44 tiffany December 4, 2010 at 3:34 pm

just wondering…do you refrigerate your natural peanut butter, or do you leave it out?


45 Kath December 4, 2010 at 5:25 pm

I don’t refrig. or it wouldn’t be drippy


46 Melissa @ I Never Imagined December 4, 2010 at 3:56 pm

I wish I had that red mug- it looks like the perfect coffee vessel! Fat, and with a lip. Perfect!


47 Hannah December 4, 2010 at 5:24 pm

I’d have the happiest face in the world if someone were to make that for me!!


48 stacey-healthylife December 4, 2010 at 5:33 pm
