Cody's Cream Pancakes (TNT)
The thread that mentioned kids in the kitchen reminded me of this recipe. My son didn't spend a ton of time in the kitchen when he was younger, but he did perfect these pancakes. I knew he had it bad for his girl Sara when he made these for her when he was home on leave last fall! If he's cooking for her, he's in love. =P
