Scripps Ranch resident Megan Gotch loves cooking breakfast on the weekend for her husband, but wanted something with some nutrition to it. So she got creative with a regular pancake recipe, and “Healthified But Still Yummy Pancakes” were born.

“I now have something that tastes good and is good for you,” she said. “It is also allergy friendly with no eggs or dairy.”

Gotch – who works at SmartStart Academy and is a professional freelance photographer – also enjoys ballet, blogging and “Sunday shopping at Trader Joe’s.” She also is thrilled to be with husband John and cat Symba in Scripps Ranch. “I love all things San Diego, but I am super happy living in the beautiful and peaceful Ranch,” she said.
