As you can see, I have been on a whole wheat kick lately. And chocolate chip cookies just had to be a part of it. I couldn’t wait to make them and see how the whole wheat flour affects the texture and taste.
I decided to lighten things up in anticipation of spring. The snow is melting away and there is a warm front approaching. At least that’s what our meteorologist tells us. I decided to believe them and get ready.
Today I am sharing our favorite recipe for pancakes.
Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes.
Happy first day of Spring! If you see it anywhere, send it my way. We had a hefty dose of snow in the last two days, snowflakes so big you could almost see their shapes through the window. Because that’s as close to the snow as I get. Or want to get. Don’t like winter. Miss summer. That’s me.
But hey! First day of spring calls for celebration. So… let’s eat cake!
This chocolate sauce drizzle was totally not planned. All I wanted to do is monkey bread muffins for my kiddos. It’s been on my to-bake list for a while and as soon as my new supply of yeast arrived, I was whipping up the dough in no time.
I love baking with yeast. There is something about the dough, the technique, the whole process. Over the time I have learned many tricks to make every project involving yeast work.
I think I’ve found a way to deal with the clutter and my to-do lists from this winter. It appears that I just need to lose something.
Let me explain.
The other day, I could not find my camera charger no matter how hard I looked. I searched everywhere I thought it could be and all I was getting was irritated and frustrated. Ugh. I hate losing things. Or worse, placing them somewhere and thinking “just remember I put it there” and then totally forget that place.
It’s a glorious 70 degrees outside today. Seventy! Thank you, Mother Nature! Let’s celebrate with cupcakes!
Not just any cupcakes. The beginning of Spring requires a little step up from classic chocolate cupcakes. Besides, St. Patrick’s Day is just a few days away and chocolate and mint combinations are highly sought after. I added it all up and came up with this chocolate mint combination.
