Do you go through flavour fazes? I just kind of roll through one and into another. For a while I’ll want everything strawberry, then in a month or so it will have to be matcha.

Being a dessert girl, I’ve always loved “dessert” breakfasts; pancakes, crepes, waffles (all smothered with syrup, obviously :-)). Of course I usually make the grown-up, healthy, choice of fruit or oatmeal, but have always felt that it shouldn’t have to be that way. Why must we sacrifice one for the other? Why can’t we have the best of both worlds?
