A Thank YOU!
I wanted to thank all of you for your outpouring of love and support on my first day of culinary school. All of your kind words touched my heart in a big way. It’s an unexpected bonus from blogging.
Recipes from Readers
I often get recipes from readers – another unexpected bonus from blogging. I read and save all of them, wishing I had time to make each one. All passionate cooks probably have more recipes than time.
This recipe, though, came to me exactly when I needed it from Amy at Love with a Capitol L. I’ve been looking for a delicious and simple way to add some lean protein with my green smoothie for breakfast. I can only eat scrambled or hard boiled eggs for so many days before I want to gag. And, quite honestly, the last thing I want to eat in the morning is meat.
Long Term Weight Loss & a Healthy Breakfast
One of my ‘secrets’ to long term-weight loss is to eat a healthy breakfast with some healthy carbs, protein, and fat. I need all three to keep me my body going strong until lunch.
I wanted light, healthier, and delicious with lasting power. That’s what I got.
I’ve been playing around with different variations and right now this is my favorite. They’re thinner so that they have a more of a crepe like consistency while still being thick enough to have a nice presentation. I tried making them with less batter and the edges got too thin and paper-like.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I think it would be fun to make them into heart-shaped pancakes using a metal cookie cutter as a mold.
