Pink Lemonade Pancakes

Valentine’s Day falls on a school day this year. It’s hard enough to get my children to class on time normally, but add a homemade holiday breakfast to the mix and I might explode. So keep this in mind: While I’m framing this Pink Lemonade Pancake recipe as a breakfast food, feel free to make it for dinner. Check out the slideshow for instructions.—Sharon Beesley
