In a small bowl, dilute 1 teaspoon baking soda in 1 tablespoon of warm water; set aside until ready to bake your pancakes. Important: Only add the baking soda/water mixture to the pancake batter just before you are ready to cook the pancakes. Make certain everything is ready to go, the griddle hot, so the Sourdough can be cooked while the air is still working in the batter. This will produce light sourdough pancakes that melt in your mouth. When ready to cook your sourdough pancakes, fold the baking soda/water mixture gently into the prepared pancake batter (do not beat). Heat up a lightly-greased griddle (I like to use my cast-iron skillet griddle) until fairly hot; then pour the sourdough pancake batter onto the griddle.

Cook the pancakes 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with your favorite toppings. Setup a Gas Grill Smoker - Smoke On Your Own Grill! What?

One morning she put out a big container of FAGE Greek Yogurt—and I was completely hooked at the first bite. Greek yogurt compares to regular yogurt like home-grown tomatoes compare to February tomatoes in the grocery store—about a kazillion times better.
