Wednesday, October 4

Last night I was reading Bettsi's blog (Tender Arts) and she spoke highly of switching to beta blogger. So I followed suit. I like it a lot. Especially that I could change colors easily and girlie this place up! Hope you like!

Well, I woke up this morning with a lovely cold so I probably won't be doing much worth writing about today. Hopefully Zicam will do its thing and make it all go away!

The little autumn doll I wrote about the other day is now on eBay. I don't do ebay auctions very often as I tend to use the high bid and number of views as a measure of my self worth. She looks so sad all packaged up that I had to do it for her.

Since I don't have anything fun to show you, and nothing all that interesting to tell you, I'll leave you with my recipe for pancakes. Trust me, these are not your ordinary pancakes. They are so light and fluffy. And they smell like waffle cones (you know that smell!). And they are so yummy you'll find yourself making extra just so you can make peanut butter and honey sandwiches later on, using pancakes as the bread.


2 1/2 cups flour (I use all purpose flour)
1 tsp salt
3 Tblsp baking powder (use only 2 Tblsp if using Rumford brand...that stuff is crazy)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
5 Tblsp oil (I like peanut oil)
1 Tblsp vanilla
2 cups milk

Mix all ingredients and cook on a lightly buttered (or sprayed with an oil spray) griddle or pan.

Pancakes! Thank you! They're a favorite food around here, but I must admit that on busy weekday mornings I resort to the "just add water" mix. I'll have to try these out this weekend. The new layout looks very pretty. I'm wishing you luck on your cute dolly. I too get emotionally invested in my ebay auctions.

Thank you for the recipe. I can't wait to try it on saturday morning. My mom and dad are coming to visit and Dad LOVES pancakes. I have been looking for a good recipe...and who could resist the smell of waffle cones?

Good morning!

I'm Becka's sister in law - she gave me the link to your blog. It's very pretty - I like the pink :)

The reason she sent me in your direction is because I have about 203 questions about felting. She said you know everything there is to know about it :)

Is there a way we can email and you can straighten me out on this? I'm so confused!!

Just stopping by again to say that these pancakes are the best I have ever made. I ran out of breakfast foods this morning and only had a couple of eggs and some powdered milk. The pancakes were just the thing. I have made them cose to half a dozen times now, and everytime, they are as delicious as the last. LOVE THEM!

Wanted to let you know that yet again, I am using your recipe. Your panacakes are the very best ever!
