Our Favorite Breakfast Toppings!

Ya'll may know that I've always had trouble with eating breakfast if you subscribe to me on Youtube.But lately I've been in such a cooking/baking mood that I'm trying to make breakfast a little more fun for both me and Eliada (my 3 year old).

So, I absolutely love pecans and Eliada loves Pancakes. She will literally ask for them every morning. So I searched on google and I have found a lot of different pancake recipes. I did save some on Pinterest. If you haven't followed you, you gotta. I have been using it as a cookbook lately! Check out my Favorite Recipes board for more pancake ideas HERE.

I found this recipe and we LOVE IT! Last week I made it like 3 times, lol. So here's the recipe, I hope ya'll try it out or let me know what you think of it.... WHAT'S YOUR FAV PANCAKE MIX-IN??

Toasty Pecan Topping
for Pancakes

10 mins
4 servings

Recipe courtesy of:
Roger Fillion for California Olive Ranch(No longer on the website)

Chef's Note:

Instead of topping your pancakes with butter, try a healthful and even more flavorful alternative: pecans sautéed in a fruity extra virgin olive oil. The fruitiness of our Arbequina variety pairs especially well with the nutty, toasty flavor of the sautéed pecans. Be careful not to overcook the nuts. Instead, take them from the pan while they’re only slightly browner than when you started. As they cool, they’ll crisp up some more. Pecans, by the way, are the only native American tree nut.


  • ½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • Scant 2 Tbsps. California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil


  1. Heat California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan. Add pecans, shaking pan frequently to ensure they are cooked evenly. Be careful not to overcook pecans, paying careful attention to the smallest nuts in the pan because they tend to brown more quickly.
  2. Cook pecans until they are a bit browner than they were originally, removing them from the pan because they will continue to cook.
  3. Sprinkle a generous portion of nuts on top of each serving of pancakes and accompany them with your favorite syrup.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
