Did you know there was a National Blueberry Pancake Day? Me neither. But we will be sure to celebrate it on January 28th with our family’s favorite pancake recipe. 

If you care for someone who used to love to cook but is finding it difficult due to memory, loss, this recipe is great for involving them in the kitchen. Why? There are no eggs to be concerned about, it is a simple and forgiving recipe, and it allows them to whisk or stir, sift if desired, and enjoy a delicious end result. Also a great recipe for grandparents to do with grandchildren.
