Delicious Almond Pancakes with Citrus Cranberry Compote!

Yesterday, I had such an awesome start to the morning! – So good, I had to share it with you! My husband, Adam, fixed pancakes made with almond flour instead of all-purpose flour and topped them with the same citrus cranberry compote that we’d fixed at Thanksgiving. (I seriously fell in love with it!) I’m so totally lucky to have a guy like Adam. I love him with all my heart.

    • Thank you, Merle! πŸ™‚ I find that “brave” is something no one is innately, but that we all manage to muster when we’re scared. When the choice is “Go on, or don’t” usually, going on is the best and only choice! πŸ˜‰
