Whole Wheat Pancakes


I love wheat. I also love pancakes. This is a great new recipe that I altered to make dairy-free. I've made them many times now. I love them so much that this recipe justified going and buying an electric griddle to increase my pancake making efficiency (these photos were taken prior to that purchase). 

Here's the recipe:
Makes about 10 medium-size pancakes (just enough for our young family of four eaters):

In a small dish, combine and let sit for approx. 5 minutes:
2 cups milk (I use almond milk)
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

In a large bowl, whisk together:
2 eggs
4 Tbsp coconut oil
approx 2 Tbsp raw honey

Add curdled milk mixture and mix.

Add and mix until moistened:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Mixture will be thin but slightly lumpy. Oil your heated pan or griddle with coconut oil and cook about 2-5 minutes on each side, until perfectly golden and cooked through. 

Optional additions to batter: cinnamon, mashed bananas or other fruit.

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

Snickerdoodles

A definite favorite for all who have enjoyed them.

Preheat OVEN to 400 degrees.
Mix:
1 ½ CUP sugar
½ CUP shortening
½ CUP margarine (softened)
2 eggs

Add:
2 ¾ CUPS flour
2 TEASPOONS cream of tarter
1 TEASPOON baking soda
¼ TEASPOON salt

Add more flour if needed to be able to make firm balls out of the dough. Shape dough into 1-1½ inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place about 1-2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack.

Recipe makes about 48 2-inch cookies.
Estimated prepare and bake time is 30-40 minutes.
NOTE: An additional 1/2 cup of flour may be added for more fluffy cookies (as shown in photo).
