Flip Your Wig Pancake

Remember that movie Practical Magic the scene where they flip pancakes in the air? One of my favorite scenes, but we are not flipping pancakes because I don’t know how to do that; but this recipe can make you flip your wig. I mean I don’t wear a wig, but it is wig flippin’ good! And oh so easy to make; which is major brownie points in my book!!

Lets just hop right into it. You can find the recipe here!

The recipe calls for you to use a blender, at 8am in the morning I was not going to bring that bad boy out…morning coffee has not kicked in and if you’re anything like me…I love my mornings quiet and easy.

For my dry ingredients I just put them through a very fine strainer; then added my wet ingredients into the dry.

Then whisked my ingredients into submission, until they were all combined and ready to go.

Melt that butter baby…did you really think we were going to get through a recipe without butter. I’m afraid not, I mean I know I have mentioned on here before..there are not such thing as calories. Butter is very equivalent to garlic in my cooking….if I can add it I will.

Although I will openly admit…I added waaaaay….waaaaay to much butter. I really don’t measure…I definitely eye ball it up and down.

Once the bottom was nicely coated with the butter I added some of the batter…..

Then placed it in the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes

Then this happened….

Where the hell did my cast iron skillet go? I definitely added way to much batter, you can’t even see my cast iron skillet. Whose to judge…no one is to see it (as I share mine with millions)…

This one is my fourth one, each one became increasingly smaller…more ideal. But is smaller really better even with food? Does size really matter? Unless it’s a chicken wing (bar food)…nothing and I mean NOTHING can justify those parakeet wings, but we are not here to yet discuss my strange ways with certain food. Parakeet wings make me cringe…you could probably chase me around the room with one…and have the same reaction if you were chasing me with a lady bug….yeah I don’t like those either.

I just dug into that bad boy; I wasn’t waiting…it just sort of happened between the slight sugar and caffein rush. Yet I am finding myself saying once again…another recipe added to my favorites. What I think I like most about this recipe is that fact that it wasn’t heavy like a normal pancake; I felt like I could still go running after and not feel like you can roll me down the street.

One another note, anyone watch 90 Day Fiance? I have it recording right now and all I can think about is Ed and Rosemarie. My mom got me hooked onto it last weekend, I don’t typically watch reality tv, but Ed puts me in tears laughing. I just can’t with those two; I know I couldn’t do what Ed does. Last week I shot wine across the room laughing….

Have a great Sunday night!

Our Hawaii Trip

Our Hawaii Trip

I am unsure if you remember me mentioning back in April of this year that my family and I went to Hawaii for two weeks (the Big Island)…well I never did an official post on our trip. I really wanted too, but when I uploaded my photos from our trip I had a total of 1200 photos.

Needless to say I was overwhelmed.

This past weekend between going to the mall with my mom while she Black Friday shopped and being in a induced comatose Turkey state, I browsed 1200 photo…and came up with select few…

Okay…okay…more than a few photos to share with you.

Get ready for an overload of photos!!!!

Do you follow Kristina Kuzmic on Facebook or Instagram? If you don’t…you should!! I do, I believe I have watched every video she has ever made; she is my alter ego. Her mom truth is the best, and absolutely relatable.

If you follow her on Instagram, a few days ago she made a minute video about her homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte…it had me at…Pumpkin and easy to make.

Once Sophia was fast asleep, I brewed a fresh pot of coffee and made her homemade creamer!

My Favorite Lemon Garlic Salmon

The other night I was craving Salmon like something fierce, ideally I would eat it constantly, but it can be quite expensive. Growing up I absolutely disliked it so much, but right after I had Sophia for as much as I disliked it, I ended up loving it.

Traditionally I grill my Salmon, but when you have to refill your propane, you make due with the kitchen stove and pray for the best.

Surprisingly enough it was just as fantastic!

Here is how I make my favorite Salmon in the world!

Spring & Summer Flashback

We have officially entered my favorite season of all time…FALL….! I just love everything about this time of year, from the clothes, weather, food…just everything. If I could live in the fall season all year around, I would be absolutely happy. Personally speaking I do not like extreme hot or cold weather…that’s what makes fall perfect…

Except for today…we are welcoming fall weather with a high of 85 degrees and Sophia is sick, so with that in mind….it does not feel like fall, but I am hopeful in the coming weeks that the weather will be cooler.

Sophia woke up with a fever with no indication of the night before that she would be sick. I have been keeping her hydrated, she has no desire to eat anything and I am monitoring her fever…just hoping this Motrin kicks in soon..poor kid.

Anyways, I have decided to do a Spring and Summer roundup of unseen photos and links to older blog posts…

So let’s dig in…..

Homemade Chicken Wrap

Every other weekend Sophia, my mom and I go to Sam’s Club to fulfill some of our groceries in bulk, which happen to be more paper products more than anything. Nonetheless, Sophia recognizes Sam’s Club for their samples on Saturdays.

We stop at literally every sample station along the way.

So, this past Saturday, we were at Sams Club and this little old woman hands me a sample of their Chicken Wrap. My first reaction was it wasn’t poor tasting by any means it was just missing something.

…..FLAVOR!

So I created my own tonight for dinner, but you can certainly make this for lunch as well!!
