It's all about the food!
While shopping a few days ago, I bought a huge bag of carrots. There were more carrots than I could possibly use before they go bad, but it was too good a deal to pass up. I gave away some to a neighbor who shares with me sometimes. Then I cooked up some carrots as a side dish with dinner that night, ate leftover carrots with dinner the next night and put some away for the following weekend (Thanksgiving Dinner). But now I still have a whole lot of carrots to use up.
After looking to see what else I had, to maybe combine and make something different...I found some zucchini in the crisper. I have used carrot and zucchini together before in baked goods, so I decided to see if I could find a recipe where I could use them together. This is what I found...pancakes! YUM!
I reviewed a few different recipes and sort of combined ideas and ingredients and came up with something I liked.

I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
