I re-read the yellow wallpaper this week.  I remember it really making an impact on me when I was younger. I think it’s because I grew up with yellow wallpaper in my room that I hated.

Everyday Pancakes

Everyday Pancakes are simple enough to make EVERYDAY. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I typed pancake recipe in google a few weeks ago and Mark Bittman’s Everyday Pancake recipe from the NY Times popped up first, followed by thousands of other pancake recipes. The internet is just BURSTING with information, isn’t it! Where to start??! A quick glance at the ingredients (no buttermilk! which I never have!) and a 5-star rating made this recipe a no brainer. Made the pancakes. Loved them and my child is so grateful for my google searches, I am sure of it.

A week later, I used the recipe to make pancakes (again!) for Cooper’s sleepover. It’s in the rotation, folks!

The pancakes are light and fluffy. The batter is really so easy to whip up. I don’t know why I relied heavily on pancake mix all of these years when I usually find most of these ingredients in my kitchen.

I’m pretty close to memorizing the proportions and we all know that’s probably the best sign of a well-loved recipe. Make sure you pin this one for the future!
