Chocolate Chip Pancakes
We might make and eat pancakes once a year in our house. I woke up on Sunday morning with a craving for chocolate chip pancakes; which I’ve probably only ever eaten once in my lifetime…but nevertheless, I wanted some.
This recipe came together so easy and quick, I might consider making pancakes more often! The dark and rich maple syrup from the Bobcaygeon farmers market didn’t hurt either.
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup melted butter or vegetabIe oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mussels with Chorizo in a White Wine Tomato Sauce
I’ve always ordered this sort of dish in restaurants, but have never tried it in my own kitchen. Turns out it was super quick and simple, and easily as tasty as I have had in nice restaurants.

Paleo Zucchini Ravioli with Caulifredo Sauce
So I’ve heard the term ‘Paleo’, but I had never actually looked up what the diet actually consists of. After Googling it when I found this recipe, I am not even sure if this is true Paleo. From what I read, there is no dairy in a Paleo diet, and last time I checked, ricotta and parmesan is dairy. Either way, I keep the title the same because, hey, I didn’t make it up.
The only veggie I planted in my tiny backyard garden this year was zucchini, and I’m actually surprised we don’t look like zucchinis by now. So. Many. Zucchinis. Not complaining though.
This recipe was relatively simple to put together, but I did make a few small adjustments. Ok, some might consider this a big adjustment; I omitted chicken in the stuffing. And I didn’t replace it with anything else. I just made the spinach/basil/ricotta mixture without the chicken. I kind of think it’s better that way, but each to their own. The other small adjustment was that I used ricotta instead of mascarpone. Good choice.
The cauliflower/alfredo sauce was so, so good, and I can totally see it on real pasta instead of heavy creamy alfredo. And speaking of real pasta, you don’t miss it in this dish at all.
