You may remember several weeks ago I got to review 101 Hearty Recipes by Gooseberry Patch, in case you missed it you can read all about it here. This time Gooseberry Patch was generous enough to send us the Quick & Easy Christmas Cookbook. I could not have been more happy! I just love anything Christmas and Gooseberry Patch has now become my favorite cookbook! It is definitely the only cookbook I will buy now!

I’ve never had pancakes with vanilla before and these were great! My husband gobbled most of these up first!
Also on the same page was Banana Pancake Topper. Both my husband and son LOVED these! My husband asked why we had never thought of this before!
- Banana, peeled and sliced
- 2 T. Butter, melted
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bananas in butter for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serves 4 to 6.
Everyone loved the pancakes and especially the Banana Pancake Topper! My son likes his pancakes with Strawberry syrup, so he had strawberry banana pancakes! I will definitely be making these again! I can see this becoming a Christmas tradition as we usually make Pancakes on Christmas morning anyways!
