Pancakes with Homemade Peach Syrup ~ 31 Days of Breakfast Recipes

Pancakes with Peach Syrup

Pancakes, we pancakes at our house and being the adventurous home chef that I am, I’m always looking for fun new ways to serve pancakes. Making a simple fruit syrup/topping is a perfect and crazy delicious way to jazz them up!

Now that peaches are coming back into season (soon if you’re up north…I found them this past week at my store…yummy ripe ones!), it’s time to get this peach syrup made to go with your favorite pancakes!

Easy Raspberry Turnovers ~ New Recipe 31 Days of Breakfasts

Easy Raspberry Turnovers |

A turnover has never tasted so fresh!

I love these flaky, sweet treats…but sometimes you take a bit and the goo slips out, making a mess. Welp, there is an easy way around that…make them with fresh raspberries!

Wrap those fresh raspberries into some frozen puff pastry. Bake and drizzle with a touch of sweetness.

Simply delicious!!!

Note: There is a print link embedded within this post, please visit this post to print it.

Easy Raspberry Turnovers

Yield – 9 servings

Preparation Time – 20 minutes

Cooking Time – 20 minutes

Pastry Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 27 raspberries – about 6 ounces (you can use frozen that is brought to almost room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Glaze Ingredients

  • 7 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat. I LOVE Silpat Mats for baking!
  • Defrost the dough on the counter for about 20 minutes. Dough will still be very cold and stiff.
  • Break or cut the dough on the two folds. Now cut each of the three rectangles into three equal pieces. In the end, you’ll have 9 blocks of dough.
  • Place 3 raspberries in the center of each dough section.

Easy Raspberry Turnovers |

  • Fold the dough over to form a triangle on each one. Press the edges together with a fork to seal.
  • Use a pastry brush to gently coat the tops with melted butter.
  • Place on lined pan at least 1 inch apart. Bake the turnovers on 400 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes until puffed and lightly browned.
  • While the pastries are baking, combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Add a little water to thin until it’s the desired consistency.
  • Remove the pastries from the oven when they are done and puffed and spoon glaze over the top for a sweet finish!

50% Off Lunchbox Love Full Year Set & Crazy Discounts on the Printable Volumes Too!

Lunchbox Love for Kids

We’ve been talking a lot about this month about the morning ‘experience’ and how nutty it can be! I’ve shared a plan for getting some grab ‘n go goodies into the freezer and pantry to help you reclaim your busy mornings and feel less frantic and out-of-control!

I have high hopes for the morning time. I don’t know about you, but I’ll often ‘map out’ the morning flow the night before. Even if I don’t get around to laying clothes out and pre-packing lunchboxes, I still lay out a plan for getting through the rush, mental reminders to not forget to sign some paper or permission slip. To get the boys’ their allergy medicine (helluuuu, spring….ACHOO!), etc. etc. etc.

One of the things that I often tell myself to do, but never get around to doing is writing a quick ‘love you’ note and dropping it in the boys’ lunches. Then I get after myself for forgetting to do it in the rush.

So I’ve armed myself with a tool to keep me from forgetting AND keep me from having to tell myself that I forgot AGAIN.

Introducing Lunchbox Love.

These adorable notes are loaded with encouragement, jokes, fun facts and more…and my boys LOVE getting them in their lunchboxes. I’ve got a few sets in the drawer with the baggies and reusable napkins that we use in our lunchboxes. And I’ve got another few sets in the console of my van….so there’s no excuse to not send one with them! (I’ll tuck them into their backpacks when they’re not looking too!)

Huge sale going on today…

Lunchbox Love for Kids

I wouldn’t be sharing this with you if I didn’t love these. And think this was a great offer. I’m snatching up the free printable right now…and will be restocking on the year’s supply. Cuz soon we’ll have 3 readers in the house who can soak in the love at the lunch hour, and we’ll be flying through these LBL notes! I hope these sweet, silly and encouraging notes help you speak love and fun into your kids’ lunch hour!
