The best buttermilk pancake recipe in the world. Seriously.

Anderson You’re Doing It Wrong is appearing on Tuesday rather than Wednesday this week, because it’s not just any Tuesday—it’s Shrove Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras, also known as Pancake Day. In the days of near-universal Christianity in Western Europe, the day before Ash Wednesday was a chance to load up on all the rich foodstuffs verboten during Lent. Since pancakes are heavy on eggs, milk, and sugar (all ostensibly sinful ingredients), people made a tradition of eating them before the fasting season began. L.V. A light & fluffy pancake that tastes amazing with a secret ingredient! So today is Sunday and on Sunday’s my daughter Kelsi started a tradition to make pancakes.

A light & fluffy pancake that tastes amazing with a secret ingredient!

We almost do pancakes every Sunday (or we do some kind of sweet breakfast from French Toast to waffles). I’ve been experimenting with making homemade pancakes from scratch as I’m really not interested in always keeping a boxed mixture around…thing is, in some recipes the pancakes come out flatter, or not as tasty…I’ve tried adding buttermilk, berries and yogurt…and yet I still feel like I come out short in flavor or texture. I have made pancakes that took milk and lemon, (if you add lemon and milk it makes buttermilk) and you added it to your wet ingredients but they were still not great pancakes.

At work, we were experimenting with scones and we had a recipe that used vinegar, I know not the traditional thing to add to your sweet pancake right? Wrong! This batter is very thick, so do not add any additional liquids, do a light mixing prior to placing on your hot skillet. Enjoy!!!! Sweetopia: Royal Icing. Cowgirl cookies in-a-jar. Yeehaaa… yum yum… it’s Cowboy Cookies.

Or, in this case, Cowgirl Cookies. A friend introduced these to me and I love them. Especially the name. Cowboy Cookies. Cowboy Cookies. But why stop there. They’re smooth Ball jars made especially for crafts. But which one should I give her? Oh and note to self: Use a ruler when attaching labels next time. Luckily, the first test batch I made, worked. So, here’s the recipe: Cowgirl Cookies 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled1 teaspoon baking powder1 teaspoon baking soda1/4 teaspoon salt1 cup cooking oats3/4 cup m&ms3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips1/2 cup brown sugar, packed1/2 cup white sugar1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans Stir all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 slightly beaten egg1/2 cup butter (melted slightly in the microwave)1 teaspoon vanilla Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Here’s how they came out. Pretty and tasty. Want to make some cute cookie mix gifts, too?

See. Enjoy!
