Re-blogged from March 2013.
Christine Castro, lady of the house over at Darling Studio and a dear and supremely talented friend, recently posted an email “conversation” we had on her beautiful Brunch blog. I’m still smiling about the experience—and her question about which five people, living or dead, I would like to invite to brunch.
Who would you invite?
She also posted a pancake recipe I wrote up, and here’s where I get on my soapbox and advise: If you have time to make pancakes from a box, you have time to make pancakes from scratch. Seriously. You can have a batter together in 10 minutes (less if you skip my buttermilk substitution advice—and don’t let a toddler help you scoop the flour). You can even do yourself the time-saving favor of measuring out the dry ingredients and putting them in a container or ziplock in your pantry, all ready for when you need them.
Like Christine, pancakes are a Good Thing.
