Pancakes in a Jar and a Live Baking Event with Catherine McCord of Weelicious

Pancake Mix In, Gifts in a Jar :::

Note:  I received a package of Krusteaz mixes for my family to try and this post contains affiliate links.  All opinions expressed in this post are my own.

The little elves at my house have been busy this week.  We’re finishing up handmade gifts, including these fun pancakes in a jar which will be heading to my dad, Grandpa Mike, the kids’ favorite pancake maker.  Don’t tell Grandma, but we’ve mixed some sweet treats in for a custom mix.

We got the idea for this fun DIY gift from Krusteaz and Catherine McCord of Weelicious fame.  I’m a big fan of Weelicious and I know that many of you are, too.

I’m excited to share that Catherine is hosting a live webcast event this weekend sharing some more easy ideas, like these simple pancakes in a jar.

SKPancakeMixWe layered graham crackers and peanut butter candy into Grandpa’s mix.

Live Baking Event

You can tune in for the free webcast from across the country on Saturday, December 14 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM EST taking place at

Catherine will be making five special, simple holiday recipes and sharing great ideas for holiday gifts of food!  Since “simple” is what I’m all about, especially this holiday season, I’m really looking forward to the event.

Krusteaz is encouraging friends and family to get together for their own baking parties to get the holiday baking season started right! Just go to and don’t forget to use #KrusteazHolidays to spread the word.
