It all began one Saturday morning. I was juicing carrots and invited my son who was 9 years old to drink some of the carrot juice. He politely refused; a challenge that I would sometimes encounter while trying to feed him a healthy meal. Instead, my son asked for pancakes. Simultaneously, an idea popped into my head… just mix the carrot juice with the pancake mixture. Without hesitation, I did. I gave my son the carrot pancakes; he gobbled them up, then politely asked for more. Thus, began the creation of our colorful pancakes! Our pancakes, which are fruit and vegetable-based mixtures offer a natural color, a natural, more intense flavorful taste, and a healthier, delicious alternative to a plain pancake.
The journey to bring our fruit and vegetable-based pancake & waffle mixes to market has led to intensive research and discovery about our food choices. I developed my pancakes recipes from a basic homemade recipe and thanks to my enrollment in culinary school, I was able to tap the experience and knowledge of my culinary chefs.
