Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

A Patriotic Breakfast

 Happy 4th of July!
Need an idea for breakfast ........ 

Berry Streusel Pankcakes

via Family Kitchen

Wake up your breakfast routine with a plate of pancakes packed with fresh berries, topped with a sweet, butter streusel crumble. This recipe begins with a basic Bisquick pancake mix, but is quickly transformed into pure heaven with the addition of a few basic ingredients. The streusel adds a soft crunch and great texture, and since it contains a bit of butter, it also stands in for the heap of butter you might otherwise douse your pancakes in. If you’re looking for something new and out of the ordinary, this is one plate of pancakes you simply must try.

Berry Streusel Pancakes
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup each fresh blackberries and/or raspberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoons melted butter
In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups of the Bisquick, milk, eggs, and 1 cup of the berries. Heat a cast-iron skillet to medium heat and cook the pancakes until golden brown on both sides. In a small bowl, use a fork to combine the last 1/2 cup of Bisquick, the powdered sugar, and the melted butter together until a crumbly streusel results.
Serve pancakes with topped with streusel and whole berries and real maple syrup.

and for next year how about......
