Mogie: The Heart of the House–Book Review and Pancake Recipe

Hopefully by now it’s obvious that I think books help you explore your life…and they can totally add style to your life, too!  My boys and I loved the book Mogie: The Heart of the House by Kathi Appelt.  It’s about real-life Labradoodle Mogie and how he lifts children’s spirits at the Houston Ronald McDonald House.  A sweet, inspirational story for sure!

To celebrate our summer reading, my boys and I made our own Mogie pancakes!  It was so easy to do and the boys absolutely loved it!  In this video I show you the super simple steps to make your own Mogie pancakes.  I hope you make your own (and then tag me on social media!).  And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!
