Oven Puffy Pancakes

I tried a quick easy breakfast recipe this morning! Yay for Spring Break...but really this was so easy I could make it on a work morning as well.

Puffy Oven Pancake
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Mix together:
1/4 cup flour
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
dash of salt
Melt a Tablespoon of butter in a round cake pan in the oven. Remove from oven when butter melts and then add the batter. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes until edges are lightly browned and crispy. Slide onto plate and serve with fruit. Very good with a bit of syrup or powdered sugar as well.

I got the recipe from my friend, Grandma Honey- http://adventuresofgrandmahoney.blogspot.com/2012/04/winning-breakfast-idea.html

I added a little dash of salt, with the original recipe and I too only needed to bake it for 10 minutes...just enough time to cut my fruit and find my plate. It tasted so buttery and good! I am going to have a really fun time experimenting with this recipe.

Fast, Easy, Tasty, Healthy...

My husband and I were at Costco the other day, and dh likes to try all the taste tests. I on the other hand, am a bit shy, especially when it comes to jalepeno poppers, which burned my skin and mouth once, and other strange unknowns. One time we all tried a blue cheese sample that was so strong we were tasting it for days... But this time I must have been hungry because I tried at least three things.

Amazingly we came home with two of the three. One was this Trio of Sprouted Beans. They cook so quickly, and are healthy and pretty good considering they are beans...but we cooked them in chicken broth and they are tender and tasty, and oh I told you how fast they are to cook right? Boil for five min, let set for 10? Easy and good for you, nice side dish!

The other was a jalepeno greek yogurt...I know, what's gotten into me? Hot stuff? Jalepeno? But really, it was so creamy and yummy and good on those tender multi-grain chips, full of protein and probiotics...I just had to plop some into my cart right? I've had it daily since. I don't even have to cook it, instant spicy snack. Mmn..
I don't work for Costco either, but I do like the things I find there. Enjoy.

Oh and the third? Some probiotic drink that was very expensive...so it stayed at the store...for now.

A New Year! I'm working hard on my goals this year. I can certainly do better, but I CAN. My word for the year...I Can. And yes I know it's two words, but hey, it's only four letters. I CAN! I can choose that for my word, I can reach my goals, I can make changes, I can, I can, I CAN!

I have wonderful goals to be more active, to make better food choices, to blog more, and to make it a great year! I CAN!
