You know what’s lame? The fact that I mentioned in my previous post that I’m a just-not-into-breakfast kinda girl and guess what just so accidentally happens to be my first recipe post? Pancakes! Yes pancakes…oh the irony!
These aren’t your ordinary pancakes. These delicious goodies are swirled in cinnamon yumminess! Think of these as smushed cinnamon buns because they taste and smell just like one. This just might be my new favorite way of making pancakes!
Let’s pause and take a short break. Feel free to walk away and stretch those legs, but do please come back to read the rest of this post and to see sexy pics of pancakes! You’ve been warned. I am now going to rant about my iffy relationship with pancakes. I cannot stand eating them plain, it makes me cringe. I have to incorporate something (anything!) into them. I love putting in fresh blueberries, bananas, strawberries, chopped up apples chunks…anything that makes them taste less like dough and more like…well I don’t really know! And it’s a great way to include fruit into my diet.
Welcome back! Now on to the recipe:
FOR THE PANCAKES
- I took the “Semi-Homecooking” route and used Trader Joe’s Pancake Mix.
- 1/2 cup of melted butter
- 2/3 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons of flour
Aside from declaring myself a blog, I guess I should give you a few bits and pieces of info about me. Lets just say that I have the rest of my life to have an old lady name, so I’m going to live it up. You can call me Kat.
Now on to the good stuff! I love food. I spend my nights and mornings (and any hours in between) thinking about what I want to make or have for lunch and dinner. I’m always craving something! I think I forgot to mention breakfast…quite honestly I’m not even up during breakfast hours.
Anyhow, I’ve always been tempted with the idea of starting a blog. After one restless night, many hours of thought, and tons of encouragement and support from my boyfriend, “She Cooks, He Eats” was created.
I hope anyone that reads my blog will enjoy it and please let me know if you have suggestions or comments. And if you love talking about food as much as I do, send me a message! Perhaps one day we’ll be best email buddies :)
One last point (I promise!) I am new to cooking, officially started at the beginning of this year! I just love food. I love to cook. I spend countless hours subscribing and reading foodie blogs on my Google Reader, not to mention all those hours I’ve clocked watching the Food Network and now defunct Fine Living Channel which is now the Cooking Channel!
Cheers to you and my new blog!
p.s. This girl also has a love/love relationship with cupcakes! Just ask my boyfriend :)
