the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

Fluffy Pancakes

This is the best recipe for pancakes - light and fluffy, even when using half white whole wheat flour. Adapted from allrecipes

1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour (I use half white whole wheat)
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
**It is really good with blueberry sauce - either with fresh berries, corn starch, water and sugar; for a simpler approach, dilute a can of blueberry pie filling with hot water and heat through.
