Recipe Exchange (Beuller? Beuller?)

Ok, so either not a single one of my readers cooks, or you are all selfish recipe hoarders who want my family to die of food boredom, or else (hopefully) it was just a busy week and everybody but Jennifer (you wonderful woman) had a hard time getting back to my post.

Whatever the case, the Recipe Rejection Syndrome is kicking into full gear. I can hear the Ranch dressing and ketchup calling my name: "USE ME! USE ME IN EVERYTHING!" You don't want my poor family to suffer that way, do you? So please, I'll beg one last time, please share a recipe?!

Here's how to play:

1) Make a new blog post titled "Recipe Exchange" and post a recipe you love on your blog. (Include instructions for others to play along.)
2) Post the link to your recipe in my comments.
3) Check back to my comments often to see the links others have posted to their recipes.
4) Click on their comments to get even MORE links.
5) Start cooking! And be sure to report back to me (oh, and them) if you liked what you made.

I'll even post one more of my favorite recipes for good measure.

Homemade Cinnamon-Vanilla Pancakes
(Makes 8-10 pancakes. Double the recipe if your family needs more.)

1 1/3 cup flour
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
4 TBS melted butter + butter for the pan
1 cup milk

In a medium bowl, mix together with a whisk: flour, baking powder, sugar, and cinnamon. Add egg, vanilla, and nearly all of the milk (reserve a few TBS). Whisk together. Pour in melted butter and whisk until smooth. Check the consistency of the batter-- it should drip from the whisk in globs but should not be runny. If it is too thick, add more milk, 1 TBS at a time. (Add flour 1 TBS at a time if too runny).

Heat large square frying pan or griddle to medium heat. Add 1 TBS butter to the pan and spread around. When butter begins to sizzle, drop batter to desired size. Cook until edges begin to firm up and bubbles appear in the center of the pancakes (or until edges are lightly browned). Flip and cook until the bottom is lightly brown. Add more butter for additional pancakes.


Ok, seriously though. Now I've shared two of my very favorite, delicious, and easy recipes. You should feel extremely guilty not reciprocating. You should be haunted every time you open the fridge or the pantry by the thought that I'm anxiously checking my blog for shared recipes while you Scrooge yours away. Waiting...waiting...waiting......

Being entrenched in the weight loss battle as I am right now, I can't read recipes, watch the Food Network, or even THINK about visiting The Pioneer Woman. Sorry! Forgive me?

I'm going to play, but give me a couple days to pull it together. I'm all for new recipes.
