We have a new habit on weekends: pancakes! I don’t know what took me so long to get into this griddlin’ groove, but the abundance of fresh fruit at the farmer’s market has inspired me. I’ve been using a basic recipe from Everyday Food that seems just about perfect. I kept it straight forward the past couple of weeks, and then went with a buttermilk twist on Sunday. I served them with strawberry compote that was a fresh replacement for maple syrup. The thing I have yet to master? Flipping them without getting messy — or burnt! I know I’m supposed to wait until the surface is nice and bubble-y, but sometimes that seems too late. Guess I could just turn down the flame? Any tips, I’d really appreciate them! And here’s link to the great recipe — it says it serves four but we manage to eat it all when there is just two of us. — Angela M.
