I’ve never really liked the pancakes mixes you buy in the store. As a result, I haven’t eaten many pancakes. Normally I’m more of a french toast person. Pancakes were more of a treat when I ate out for breakfast at a restaurant. When I was writing Midnight Kiss, I had the Seever children love flapjacks.
That got me thinking that in the 1860s there was no such thing as a pancake mix. And everything tastes better homemade. So I decided to give pancakes another chance.
I thought the pancake recipe would be difficult, but it is super easy. I like to eat bacon with my pancakes and fry them in bacon grease for added flavor. I put real maple syrup on top and yum. Now that’s what a pancake is supposed to taste like.

WARNING: THEY ARE ADDICTING
“Since when did you wear your hat indoors?” he asked his brother.
“What?” His eyes narrowed, but he took off his gray derby hat. “Oh.”
Matt cursed silently. He wished April wasn’t wearing her black dress today. It made her look like a servant, and not how he had wanted to introduce her to his brother.
“April, this is my brother Boyd. Boyd, this is my nanny April.”
April did a small curtsy “Nice to meet you, Mr. Seever.”
“Ma’am,” Boyd replied. He quickly switched his attention back to his brother. “I have work to do. I want to run over the proposal one more time and make sure all the numbers are correct.”
“I understand. I’ll see you at the bank.”
Boyd headed out of the room, walking past April as if she didn’t exist. Caroline had endured such treatment from his brother. Matt had hoped he’d be warmer with April. The war was over. Had all that bloodshed not changed anything?
April bristled, her posture stiffening, but she did not say a word.
Matt heard the door slam shut. Good riddance. “Don’t let him bother you, Miss April,” he said. “Come sit and eat. Your flapjacks are delicious.”
“Oh, he didn’t bother me, sir.”
Matt pointed to the empty chair on the end of the table. Where Caroline used to sit. “Please sit down.”
April hesitated. “You-you want me to join you?”
“Yes, of course.”
