This is my mom's recipe for pancakes, the ones that I grew up with on saturday mornings with cartoons. They are excellent with butter and syrup, but I especially like them topped with strawberry jam. For variety, try adding about 3 mashed bananas to the batter and then topping with the strawberry jam..... YUM!!
This is something I threw together the other night. The roasted red peppers give this dish a really nice flavor. I think adding some cooked sausage, chicken, or ground turkey would also go well with this and really make it a one-pot supper. the spice measurements here are approximate - I just shake in until I feel like there's enough, so feel free to add/subtract whatever you'd like.
These were the first muffins I ever made at the ripe young age of 8. I guess you could say that was the beginning of a love of cooking and baking for me. They are really good with a big bowl of vegetable soup.
