Mini German Pancakes

Mini German Pancakes
Here’s a fun breakfast you can make this weekend. My family love German Pancakes (at our house they are called Hootenannies). So when I saw the idea of making mini ones at a site called Gimme Some Oven I had to try them. Her recipe is basically the same as the one I make in my 9 x 13 pan, but you add the butter to the batter instead of the pan. She also adds vanilla and orange zest. I add the vanilla, but didn’t have any orange to zest in my fridge. The great thing about the minis is they turn out as perfect little cups just right to fill with fruit. I also made mine in my Demarle muffin tin, so no need for greasing here. Mini German Pancakes 1 cup milk 6 eggs 1 cup flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. orange zest (optional) 1/4 cup butter, melted Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Paleo, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined-Sugar free This is the time of year when delicious food starts appearing from every direction. You might be trying really hard to keep it out of the house, but those treats find a way in. Your neighbor brings over freshly baked Christmas cookies (how can you say no to that?!), your kids come home with treats, or maybe you simply love baking and whipping up batch after batch of cookies yourself. I’m with you there; it’s hard to resist this time of year. But I’ve learned one big secret about making wise choices; we have to give ourselves a healthier alternative.

Breakfast Pockets These are just awesome. They are one of my favorite make ahead breakfast ideas. Not only do they have an entire meal stuffed into a portable pouch but they also made me a bread maker. Not a “bread maker” but a maker of bread. A bread maker just makes me think of the appliance. Make a new (old) barn door.... I am making a new door for our pantry cabinet in the kitchen. The doors split a while ago and I knew I wanted to do something a little "funky" to them so..... I did and I will share each step with you (just in case you are in to funk too). I would also use this same process to distress furniture or any other paint poject for a really rustic and chipped paint look. Jasmine Ice Cream WARNING. This ice cream is delicious!

This is a great, chic and cute reusable DIY. Matcha Mochi Cupcakes These mochi cupcakes are crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside, and have a wonderful hint of matcha. This recipe is a great alternative to the cupcakes we’re used to because they’re not overly sweet. Don’t be afraid to brown edges on these babies—the crusty texture gives a nice contrast to the sticky innards. See the photo above?

Lemon Brownies I am constantly looking for different ways to fuel my rather unhealthy lemon obsession, and since I've already made an elephantine amount of lemon bars (don't worry, there will be more!), I decided to try something new...something kinda-sorta similar to a lemon bar but without the jelly-belly center. Low and behold, I stumbled upon this incantation of a lemon bar/brownie hybrid! They're not quite as lemony as lemon bars, which makes them perfect for silly people who don't like their recipes on the tart side, but they are still lavish enough to pacify citrus-y dessert longings.

Dutch Crunch Bread Rolls For the rolls: In the bowl of an electric mixer combine yeast, water, milk, sugar, and oil. Gradually add in the flour and stir until moistened. BEST PANCAKES EVER !!! These are absolutely the best home made pancakes we have ever eaten!! They are super tall, light and fluffy and yet they don't get all mushy when syrup is added, they are EXCELLENT!! 3/4 cup milk2 tablespoons white vinegar (see note)1 cup all purpose flour2 tablespoons white sugar (I used 3)1 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon salt1 egg2 tablespoons melted butter1 teaspoon vanillaCombine the milk and vinegar in a small bowl for 10 minutes to "sour". This is an important step and it is called "soured milk" which is much different that sour milk. I guarantee you will NOT taste the vinegar in the final product.

Pumpkin Pie Bites I’ve been in a mini-mood lately when it comes to baking and these bite-sized pies met my big craving. They are really, really easy. Let me show ya. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I used ready to roll refrigerated pie crust. It comes two to a box and if you roll each round pie crust a little bit thinner with a rolling pin, you can get 24 mini pumpkin-shaped pie crusts out of them. Make sure you use all the dough scraps and re-roll to maximize quantities.

Ghibli feast #7: Spirited Away Day 3 of Ghibli feast Ghibli feast #7: Spirited Away Spirited Away was the second Miyazaki film that was theatrically released in the U.S., so I’m sure a lot of people know and saw this film in the theater. I’m not going into details of this film since I’m not good at summarizing… so let’s just get to the feast.
