It's finally snowing after weeks and weeks of insanely warm "winter" weather here in VA. Well, it's not really "snowing" but there's a light dusting of hazardous ice particles falling from the sky and barely sticking. It's basically doing more than it has been all winter long...so far. Point is, it's cold as hell outside but it's kinda romantic -- the perfect kind of day to stay in, snuggle up and eat a stack of delicious blueberry pancakes.
Happy New Year! I just got back from Houston yesterday, and I didn't realize how much I missed my kitchen for the 2 days I was away. It was about the only thing I missed aside from my dog, I'll admit. I had a blast in Houston kickin' it with my homegirls who are all equally in love with Big K.R.I.T. We partied and rang in the new year with him and it was everything. But I came back, and after catching up on some sleep, I woke up needing to make a stack of buttery pancakes.
Rise and shine! If you put these on the plates of your loved ones, or yourself, you are going to want to hug yourself like Ray Charles. This recipe will give you fluffy yet rich pancake perfection, and with the addition of the fresh cranberries, dried cranberries, and orange zest...it takes an already super delicious pancake to astronomical levels. You've gotta make these.
I want to dedicate this recipe to my darling Luvvie. She is doing so well in life as a whole and she recently learned she'll get to be on the red carpet at the Academy Awards! So to celebrate your "red carpet" moment, here's a red velvet pancake recipe for you, Luvvie. I know how much you adore all things red velvet, so try this out -- it's super easy and all for you <3
I may love making just about everything from scratch, but I am not above "just add water" pancake mix. However, I rarely "just add water"...I almost always add something amazing to it so that I'm actually enjoying my dusty box of pancake mix. This is a great recipe for those days when you're out of everything you need to make homemade pancake batter -- like I usually am...
