Delicious Multi-Grain Pancakes

Baby, it’s cold outside and the leaves are falling.  It’s beautiful but my herb garden won’t be around for long, so thank goodness for fresh herbs at our local markets these days.  I still think there is more flavor and fragrance when it comes straight from the garden into the kitchen.

Here’s one of my breakfast favorites using mint from my herb garden.  Multi-Grain Pancakes with Mint and Raisins.

    Multi-Grain Pancakes    
1 C. Multi-Grain Flour
1 1/2 C. Krusteaz Pancake Mixture
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix these dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Add in 1 C. of milk and 1 C. of Water
Whisk mixture together (add milk or water if desired to thin the consistency, I like it the
consistency of cake batter)
Chop 3-4 mint leaves and 1/2 C. of raisins, add to the batter and mix slowly.
Let batter sit for 5 min.

Heat a non-stick pan to medium high, if using a good quality pan – there isn’t a need to put butter down or use a non-stick spray (once the pan is hot, put down a small amount of batter to determine this).

Use 1/8 C. to scoop batter into pan.  Cook on first side until bubbles pop in batter, then flip and cook for one to two minutes on the second side, checking occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I love to serve these with fresh apricot or raspberry jam, but that’s up to you.  Make It Your Own!

Welcome Autumn

Took these snapshots from the window of my car while driving up to Snowbasin to cover an event for the paper. Chilly, beautiful, vibrant fall.

 

 

 

After a lovely drive out of Ogden canyon, I stopped to work at this cute coffee shop, Kaffe Mercantile. A pumpkin scone and an americano (and a few flying crickets) were my writing companions on the side patio.

 

Happy Fall to All.

Get Your Costume On!

The spooks will be out soon.  One of our neighbors is already lighting up the night with orange and purple lights.  I find myself browsing the web trying to find the perfect costume for Halloween.  I thought I would share some really awesome wigs that I came across in my search for the ultimate costume… hopefully I’ll decide on a costume soon, but these were fun finds!  If anyone has insight to a great costume, let me know!

Saturday in Salt Lake

Salt Lake City’s City Creek just opened this week and downtown has a become much more appealing to locals.   People are out and about.  So what would a Saturday Night in Salt Lake City look like?  Well, here’s what you could have done last night: Dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, dreamed big in Restoration Hardware in City Creek, take the kids and spouse to Beauty and the Beast at Capitol Theater and meet one of the cast.  Or Dinner at Eva, Shopping at City Creek Center, dance to Tuxedo Tramps and Three Bad Jacks playing at Beck Street Garage, and maybe even meet a local artist like Adam Bateman.  Sounds pretty good to me and I only gave two scenarios.  Salt Lake is becoming a hot spot for fashion, art, food, music and night life.  So whatever you know of Salt Lake City, I’m happy to say, there’s more…  {A}
