It's National Pancake Week!

What we would we do without Twitter? (Follow me there @FabulousCheri.) I just learned from another foodie's tweet that this week is National Pancake Week. Well I'm always up for a celebration, especially when it involves pancakes! So I did a perusal of the Pancake recipe archives. There were so many fabulous recipes, I just had to share them with you. There's a wide variety, so you can celebrate this special week at breakfast, lunch and dinner. So check out the recipe links below and Have a Happy Pancake Week everyone!
