On the weekends, my family and I look forward to relaxing, hanging out in our pj’s and eating a big breakfast together. Sometimes it’s waffles, pancakes, or maybe even a breakfast casserole.

To change it up a bit hubby through in some food dye in his pancake batter and surprised the kids with colorful pancakes. The kids squealed with excitement and asked to do it again!

But after breakfast I had an icky feeling that we ingested a whole bunch of unnecessary food dye.

As I was searching for different alternatives, I came across Color Garden.

We separated the batter into 4 bowls. My sous chef, Sarah, added the individual color packets into the bowls.  My two year old wanted to help too!I love when I can make cooking a family event.All the colors are mixed in and ready to cook. So fun! The kids loved all the bright colors and mama was happy we weren’t eating chemicals. Win win!  We sat down for breakfast, drizzled some maple syrup and enjoyed our morning together.    Even though this was an activity for the kids, this mama enjoyed her pancakes (and coffee) too!Each individual packet delivers enough color for one medium-sized cake or approximately 16oz of frosting.
