For Valentine’s Day Dale and I rarely give each other gifts. I’ve asked him not to give me flowers or buy me a card(we make our own). At this moment in life it’s not in the budget. I don’t need things to tell me he loves me.Instead we enjoy doing the simple things together, like having a candlelit breakfast or dinner at home.
Making things you already have the ingredients for is the easiest, like pancakes. Just make it prettier and more intentional.
I have two pancake recipes. The one I’m giving you today I use more often than the Best Pancake Recipe. This one is just easier because you don’t have to whip the egg whites.
2 cups flour (I use GF Pamela’s Baking mix, if you use this, omit salt and baking soda)
2 eggs beaten in a two cup measuring cup
Add plain yogurt to beaten eggs to make two cups
2 tablespoons oil, melted (I use butter or coconut oil)
2 tablespoons organic sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add all ingredients and mix well. I let it sit for 10 minute’s. Heat your skillet to medium high. Pour batter, when it starts to bubble–flip it. Cook for a few more minutes and serve hot! You can buy the heart shaped pancake molds on Amazon, 2 for $10 http://www.amazon.com/Norpro-Nonstick-Heart-Pancake-Rings/dp/B0000DDVWK.
