I ALWAYS make my own pancakes and crepes from scratch, so I was pretty skeptical of the product when I got it, but it definitely surpasses my expectations! My husband and I loved it so much we ordered 5 more boxes. Oh, and a tip. you can use half the mix and make a half recipe if you're not needing the whole box. Super easy. I was so glad to have the mix so I could revive those wonderful memories of being at the restaurant!
