Two-Ingredient Pancakes

"This is a super quick, super easy, super healthy recipe that helps satisfy my pancake craving. These are very thin—very similar to crepes—so don't make these expecting your typical fluffy buttermilk pancakes."


Tater Tot Cups with Cheese & Eggs

"I thought it was very good. There is potential for many variations (add sausage, sprinkle with herbs, sauces, etc). Here's a tip: I find that a gravy ladle works better than a spoon for mashing the tater tots into the muffin tins."
