I love giving my kids pancakes and waffles in the morning. They're quick, they're nearly healthy (if you make 'em right), and the kids love them.

My one dilemma, I have 4 kids of pancake lovin' age, and they all want their pancakes cut, by me, ten minutes ago.

My handy little trick? A pizza cutter. Yes, a pizza cutter. Sort of like this one.

Okay, so I don't actually have the Caddy of all pizza cutters, but a mom can dream, can't she? Anyway, all you have to do is stack the pancakes or waffles, two or three at a time, and cut right through them. Right into little bite-sized pieces, perfect for chubby little fingers or for the hopeful fork operator. The older ones like it too because I don't let them use knives yet. If ever. We'll talk about that later though...

We do this tip as well. And we use it for waffles to make waffle "fries" so that the kids can dip their "fries" into their syrup.

It's a treat for them and a time saver for us.
