Cauliflower Crust Pizza I came across this cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest, and was instantly intrigued. A low-carb pizza? Sign me up! I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. My husband isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower, so I planned on making the pizza before he got home from work. So the general conclusion…Healthy, tasty and husband-approved?

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes | The Baker Chick There are certain recipes that when I see I absolutely have to make. This doesn’t happen all that often. Usually I’ll admire something and bookmark it, maybe getting inspired by another beautiful recipe along the way. You basically start with a classic pancake, (this recipe below or your own,) and swirl in a cinnamon, brown sugar, butter mixture. I highly recommend you makes these happen in your life very soon. Ingredients 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup buttermilk 1 Tablespoon canola oil 1 large egg, lightly beaten Cinnamon Filling: 1/2 cup butter, melted 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon Glaze: 4 Tablespoons butter 2 ounces cream cheese 3/4 cup powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Instructions Prepare pancake batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Notes The filling portion listed above is WAY too much for 4 medium pancakes.

Focaccia This is the real deal focaccia. The kind infused with herb oil and left for a long cold rise overnight in the fridge to get the best flavor. It's soft, chewy, and savory all at the same time. You can pile on toppings like cheese and sundried tomatoes but I like it best plain and ready to dip into some oil and balsamic vinegar. There are a lot of recipes for quick and easy focaccia but if you have the extra time to let it rise overnight in herb oil it's worth it. What gives the bread its flavor is a herb infused oil. EDIT: You won't use the entire cup of oil in the bread. 1/4 cup goes on the tray, then 1/4 cup spooned on top, then after the rise in the fridge you add UP to a 1/4 cup. To incorporate air bubbles into the dough and to further knead it the focaccia gets stretched and folded three times. First you stretch the dough out on a floured surface to twice its size. Then you fold it like a letter and lightly brush it with oil... After 30 minutes you stretch and fold again. Focaccia

Jamaican Banana Fritters - ThatsSoYummy.com There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use! Enjoy! Peel and mash the ripe bananas. Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Next, blend egg mixture with mashed bananas. Make sure it is all incorporated. Then sift flour and baking powder into the banana/egg mixture. Mix it all together. If the batter seems to be too thick add a little milk… I added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk. Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the banana fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden. Lastly, combine cinnamon and sugar together to create your cinnamon sugar. Ingredients

Fluffy Pancakes | Blogger For Hire This pancake recipe is the result of mixing and matching different recipes from many different sources. It is the result of trying and failing so many times, that I almost declared pancakes as the one breakfast recipe I couldn’t master. But I persisted, and this recipe is perfect – as perfect as a pancakes recipe can be, because making pancakes does involve frying, and frying is something that each of us needs to play with. It changes depending on your type of stove (gas or electric), on how hot the skillet is, and on how evenly hot you manage to keep it while frying multiple batches. But the instructions here are as close as it gets to “perfect,” and the result? This recipe makes 16-18 pancakes. Fluffy Pancakes Makes 16-18 pancakes.

So much so that I started wondering what else I could do to replicate the Cinnamon Roll. I went with a buttermilk waffle… plain, with no cinnamon filling added. I drizzled the cinnamon-sugar filling on top. I figured… why not? My ideal cinnamon roll always has cream cheese icing, so a cream cheese icing drizzle was in order too. Lots of cream cheese icing, please. I could hardly wait to take a bite… to see if this whole Cinnamon Roll Waffle thing worked out. That’s about all I could eat.
