I remember when I was a freshman in college and I was feeling a little homesick. I woke up in my loft bed above my student desk on a Saturday morning and I swear I could smell my dad cooking pancakes. No, I don't think I had developed a super-power sense of smell that could detect scents 100 miles away, but I do think my longing for home kicked my imagination into overdrive.
Now I love to make pancakes, but because of the calories involved, I can't make them every week, as much as I would like to. I love to try different recipes from scratch, the most recent being Fluffy Pancakes from allrecipes.com (pictured). It's an amazing recipe and I was suprised that they are so good with such basic ingredients. Basic ingredients is also what I love the most about the recipe. I always have the ingredients in my pantry and fridge, so I can make them whenever I have a craving. I also enjoy making whole-grain pancakes and adding cinnamon. The maple syrup and cinnamon combination is amazing.
There is a Bisquick commercial playing right now where a lady sings about blueberry pancakes and I've had the song stuck in my head the past few days (which is annoying, because it's not a good song at all). Every once in a while I just blurt out a line from the song. My husband keeps asking when I'm going to make these blueberry pancakes I keep singing about. Oh I don't know.... I just like torturing him singing the song.... moo ha ha.....
