Growing up, pancakes with a cold glass of milk was my go-to for breakfast (and even dinner sometimes!). However, shortly after being diagnosed as lactose-intolerant and gluten-sensitive, my days of pancakes & cow’s milk had to come to an end. With this alternative to traditional pancakes, though, I get to have what I used to love and not feel guilty about it– it’s healthy, too!

For our last little weekend away, we packed our bags and headed to the Skytop Lodge in Skytop, Pennsylvania. Open since 1928, it is part of the Historic Hotels of America and has beautiful views of the Pocono Mountains.
The drive up from NYC wasn’t bad at all, about 2.5 hours, and was very scenic around the 45-minute mark. When we arrived to the property, we pulled into the parking lot and walked into the main cabin, where we were greeted by the very friendly staff and checked in. It was tea time in the lobby (yay!) so we went to our room, put our bags down, and went back down for some tea.
