Yesterday would have been my Grams 68th birthday. She passed away a few days after Olivia was born after a 40 year battle with cancer. You would have never known it by the smile on her face and the joy she carried around with her. Grams was the closest thing to a second mom and one of my best friends.
Today I made these pancakes for her, using her beautiful tarnished silverware and lace napkin in my pictures. She loved figs and honey. She loved making every little meal special whether it was letting me use a fancy napkin from her collection or garnishing a simple bowl of fruit with mint. She was an extraordinary person and an even better hostess. Maybe a little bit of this hobby of mine has a little bit to do with how much I loved her making every thing so beautiful.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and always remember to make sure to add something a little extra to it so that you make someone feel extra special. :)
