I feel like I should have titled this blog post “confessions of a food blogger” because I’m about to let you in on a dirty little secret. Are you ready? Here it goes: I am the parent of a picky eater. A really picky eater. Yes, that is correct. This food blogging mama has a little one who will barely eat anything resembling real food. She is my two year old, blonde, sassy little bit of dynamite who has a definite mind of her own, especially when it comes to food. She essentially has five approved foods: cheese, yogurt, bread, scrambled eggs, and pancakes. Anything outside those groups is almost guaranteed to be refused and so I’ve had to get creative in my cooking. I developed these Pumpkin Ricotta Pancakes to try and sneak a little protein into my girl’s favorite breakfast. Our whole family loved them and I thought you might, too!
