Banana Bread Pancake Recipe

Banana Bread Pancake Recipe
Here’s what I know about pancakes. They taste good with cherries. Apples and bacon too. They make slept-in mornings with toothpaste stains eight thousand times better. They are what my dad stuffs with blueberries. They probably wouldn’t be good with things like broccoli or beans… because that’s just weird. Oh! They taste extra excellent with ice cream on top. Even better steaming hot with oozing butter… then ice cream on top. They save marriages. They aren’t the best choice for breakfast when you want to wear a string bikini. They often slip you into a welcoming food coma that causes you to desk nap. They are darn good. They are cake. Seriously. Now hold your horses. I feel bad declining him day after day. But it’s the combination… the bananas, the brown sugar, the maple vanilla glaze… that has etched this breakfast into the rotation at our house. There is a reason this is huge. So now people can eat banana bread without stuffing an entire loaf down their face. makes 12 pancakes 1/4 teaspoon salt

Shrimp with Garlic and Parsley - The Best Sizzling Spicy Appetizer at Cooking Melangery Appetizers are purely for fun. Hors d'oeuvres the French call them: "outside of the works." They are likely to have a wicked lot of calories but most people have come to expect them with cocktails. The French picked up the habit of pre-dinner snacking from the Russians, who call such tidbits zakuskis. Italians have their little plates of antipasto, while Scandinavians serve all manner of spicy, pickly things at a smorgasbord and make a complete meal of them. Hot hors d'oeuvres are always a treat. This recipe of Shrimp with Garlic and Parsley is amazing. Serves: 4 Ingredients: 4 to 5 Tbs. olive oil 4 garlic cloves, finely minced 1 tsp. red pepper flakes 1 tsp. sweet paprika 1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined 1 to 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice 1 to 2 Tbs. dry white wine salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley lemon pepper pasta for serving, optional (I got the pasta from Trader Joe's) Directions: In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil.

Crock Pot Bread Baking (Fast Bread in a Slow Cooker) When I moved to the midwest I was introduced to Crock Pot cooking. I had never even seen a slow cooker before and had no idea the range of foods that could be created in a plug-in cooking pot. Since then I have had everything from No-Peek-Chicken, Swedish Meatballs and Peach cobbler, done in one of these magic devices. When my husband was an art director Aveda they had “crock pot parties,” which meant everyone plugged in their slow cookers at their desks and made a dish to share. Brilliant! But, bread in a crock pot? 1 pound dough (Click here for our No-Knead 5-Minute Bread Recipe. Form the dough into a ball and place it on a sheet of parchment paper. Update: I just mixed up a fresh batch of ABin5 Peasant Bread Dough, let it rise for the two hours in the bucket, then formed a 1-pound loaf and stuck it in the crock pot. Turn the temperature to high and put on the cover. Bake for 1 hour (this will depend on your crock pot, you may need to increase or decrease the time. Related Post:

Spiced Quinoa Apple Pie Parfait When I found honeycrisp apples at the store yesterday, I was so excited I thought I might burst. Caramelizing them was really the only thing I had in mind. Well, that… and eating them with a pound of bacon. Don’t ask. This parfait was totally new to me. Greek yogurt isn’t new to me, and neither is quinoa, but the combination of the two is. Speaking of new-to-me things, Mr. Oh, and I didn’t make the parfait for him. Not only did I love the texture of this parfait, but it offered a boatload of protein in forms that I actually enjoy, some whole grains and sweet, juicy fruit! The more my everyday food tastes like dessert, the better. Spiced Quinoa Apple Pie Parfait 1 cup greek yogurt 1 apple, chopped 1/4 cup dry quinoa 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon brown sugar Preheat oven to 375. Combine chopped apple, brown sugar, 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon salt in an oven safe dish. Happy Labor Day!

No-Churn homemade icecream | The Wanna be Country Girl This ice cream recipe has only four ingredients, takes less than 10 minutes to make, and will leave you wanting more every time. Grab 5 fresh strawberries. You can use any fruit you like, or add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and top with hot fudge. Wash and slice the fruit, then put it in a food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and pulse until the fruit is pureed. Add the pureed fruit to a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of powdered (confectioner’s) sugar to the fruit. Followed by 2-1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream. No need to mess up the big standing mixer for this. That’s a soft peak, just able to hold its shape. Pour this wonderful concoction into a covered container and into the freeze for 3-5 hours. I made some pecan shortbread to serve with the ice-cream…….or was it the other way around? Enjoy!!! the wanna be country girl – Caroline

Perfect Pizza Crust and Roasted Garlic Chicken Pesto Pizza I've been wanting to make my own pizza crust for a really long time, but for some reason I've been hesitant. I've never been much of a bread beaker and I tend to avoid recipes that deal with kneading or rising. Yesterday, though, Ross and I decided to be brave and try making our own pizza dough for Valentines Day dinner. (On a side note: I absolutely love when Ross gets involves with a cooking project. It makes it a lot more fun. If you're going to start making pizza dough I figured that a recipe called "Perfect Pizza Crust" was the place to start. If you're at all thinking about tackling pizza dough from scratch, search no further. I chose to throw some roasted garlic, pesto, chicken, mozzarella, and parmesan on mine, but with this dough I'm sure you could put anything on it and it would still be amazing!

100 Calorie Pack | The Simple Delights Even though I have had some rough egg experiences lately…the century egg, and little birdie fetus…I have not given up on one of my favorite foods. While eggs can be made to taste more disgusting than I ever thought possible, they can also be creamy, protein packed perfection and in the case of the baked egg cup, they are just that! The other morning, we had our friend Zach and one of his friends over for breakfast. Zach was our travel partner in Cambodia, and he is moving to South Africa on Monday, so we are trying to soak up as much Zach time as possible! Gavin made some delicious whole wheat banana’s foster pancakes (I think I should enlist him has a guest blogger to share his pancake secrets!) Baked Egg Cups 12 Eggs 12 thin slices of deli ham (round) 1/2 Cup of your favorite cheese (I used Parmesan) 1/2 Cup diced scallions Fresh cracked Sea Salt and Pepper Preheat the oven to 400. Bake the eggs for about 12 minutes…until the white is firm and the yolk is still nice and runny.

Sweet Potato Home Fries You are probably checking this out, thinking about how healthy these home fries are since I made them with sweet potatoes. Right? Well, hold the phone. I may have done something bad. I may have fried them in bacon grease. And when I say ‘may,’ I really mean that I absolutely did and it was 100% fabulous. See, I have a little confession. I don’t always fry my bacon. Let’s be honest – it’s messy, it’s time consuming, and I am not always in the mood to get burnt by flying bacon grease. So many times, especially during the week, I lay it on a wire rack and bake it, letting the drippings fall onto the baking sheet below. And then I throw them away. Somewhere in Heaven (hopefully…) Mother Lovett just had her 14th heart attack. And somewhere 15 minutes away from me, my mother just dropped dead. In my family, throwing away the drippings is the ultimate sin. But yesterday, I decided to fry bacon. The only difference is that my drippings won’t be in there for the next 3 years.
