Curious George Rocks!! All-New Season Premiering Labor Day, September 5,2011
My girls have loved, enjoyed and grown up with Curious George. When I was offered a chance to pre-screen the new season I jumped at the chance! With a new school year beginning Curious George was sure to help spark my girls imagination.
In a brand new season Curious George Takes on the Arts. I love this idea as I believe children express themselves through art. Art adds a great dimension to a child’s education promoting self-expression,confidence all while reinforcing science, math and history. In the first episode George takes part in his first auction for charity. Excited about bidding for a cute pair of red elephant mittens soon takes a surprising turn as he win, but now owes $100!!
Oh George!! What an adventure!!
In using my favorite form of art -Cooking I knew I had to serve up a plate of delicious banana waffles any curious monkey would love, me included! Steamy waffles, family,strong coffee and Curious George thats’ what I call a wonderful morning.
Premiering Labor Day join us a the new season of Curious George kicks off! Also, follow along as Curious George celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month on September 19. PBS will re- air adventure packed episodes of George and his Latino friend Marco.
Mommy’s please join along on the fun in a Curious George twitter party! Details posted soon! Shall we enjoy steamy banana waffles? Let’s..
Banana Sour Cream Pancakes
by Ina Garten
makes 12 pancakes or 6 large waffles
1 1/2 cups flour-I used half flour/half whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
2 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 ripe bananas, diced, plus extra for serving
3 tablespoons sugar
Pure maple syrup
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sour cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, mixing only until combined.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until it bubbles. Ladle the pancake batter into the pan to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Distribute a rounded tablespoon of bananas on each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbles appear on top and the underside is nicely browned. Flip the pancakes and then cook for another minute until browned. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel, add more butter to the pan, and continue cooking pancakes until all the batter is used. Serve with sliced bananas butter and maple syrup.

mm I’ve been in a pancake, french toast kick as of late, I’m loving this waffle recipe! yum! Ohh curious George 🙂 brings back good memories as a kid!
I must say I have not watched Curious George in some time now, but wouldn’t mind one bit watching these waffles disappear from my plate…
Curious George is so much fun! You’ve made me want to go to the library and sit in the children’s section and read all the books.
These banana sour cream waffles look delicious! I suppose I should just make them…that seems like a more age-appropriate way to celebrate!

My kids both loved Curious George when they are little bit younger – now graduated and moved on, but I still love the character items and reading CG books to the kids. The waffles look amazing. I haven’t had waffles for a while and I wish I can eat them now!
My daughter loves Curious George – and I’m sure she’d love these waffles!!
