First Food Blog Post!
So I guess my blog will sortof be a food blog now too. I mean, food is a huge part of my life…and this blog is about my life… so there ya go.
I recently got an AMAZING present from my husband for Christmas, a used Canon EOS 20D. I’m in love.
So anyways, I’m not into these huge intro things for food blogs, they always kinda tick me off… I just wanna get to the recipe ya know!?
So this morning, Tim was sick, and I wanted to make him breakfast. I love serving him in this way, mainly because I love to cook, and I love to make him eat things. Its a win win really.
Kroger Pancake Mix (1 cup for like 4 good pancakes)
Kroger Nutella (1 tbsp to the mix itself)
Butter for no sticking (duh).
We are all about Kroger brands in this house, mainly because we are poor, newly-wed college kids and you get loads of savings with Kroger on their brand-name stuff + gas when you shop there all the time.
Ok so… Directions:
Follow the measurements on the mix packaging (or whatever pancake mix you have with you for those of you who actually make homemade pancakes!). Add either 1-2 tbs of nutella to the mix itself (although I’m not sure it actually makes a difference in the taste).
The most IMPORTANT step is when you take your mix and add it to the warm, buttered pan (medium heat). Wait until it starts to fluff up alittle and drizzle some nutella on the top. The way I did this was I took a spoon and kindof mixed the nutella up in the jar so the juices all mixed, then pulled the spoon out so there was some hanging off of it. Then I had fun making pretty swirly designs on the pancake with the nutella (see pic!).
Flip the pancake when it’s time, then add some more nutella on the other side. This side won’t be as pretty as the other one though.
Once both sides are done cooking, flip the pancake back over to the prettier side for serving.
I like this because I like to think it’s healthier than just regular chocolate chip pancakes…and it gives you a chance to make some edible art.
Next time I’ll probably add some sort of picture to the pancake.
And there ya go! I probably over-explained this a bit too much, but hey…I’m new to this whole food blog thing.
