Homemade Pancakes

I'm finally getting around to doing a recipe, I must say as a disclaimer most of the recipes I use are from the internet, recipe books, etc. I can't really cook without recipes lol. Lets get started, shall we....

This is a recipe for pancakes from scratch. Derek and I really enjoy these, they are so moist and delicious, although I must say we tried this mixture for waffles and not very good. For pancakes this mixture is easy, delicious,fluffy and we will never go back to pre-made/boxed pancake mixture.... 


Ingredients: 
1 cup of flour
2 tablespoon of sugar 
2 teaspoon of baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon of salt 
1 cup of milk 
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, or vegetable oil
1 large egg 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
This picture shows two eggs but you only need one sorry! 
Directions  
1. Take a small bowl and whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside. 
2. In medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or oil), and egg.


Add dry ingredients to milk mixture; whisk until just moistened ( some lumps is ok, don't over mix) 


3. Heat large skillet or griddle over medium. Fold a sheet of paper towel in half, and moisten with oil; rub skillet with moisten paper towel.  
4. Spoon 1/4 cup of pancake mix to skillet, two or three should fit in your skillet. 


5. cook until surface of pancakes bubbles and a few have burst. Flip carefully with a spatula, and cook till edges browned. 
6. Enjoy your pancakes with syrup, jelly/ jam, fruits toppings or whatever you enjoy your pancakes with. =) yum 

We really enjoy these, they are so moist and delicious, Although I must say we tried this mixture for waffles and not very good. For pancakes this mixture is easy, delicious , fluffy and I will never go back to pre-made/ boxed pancake mixture....

Big News!!

I feel like a horrible blogger I have not been blogging for a while, then I say I have news for the next day and don't come back on till two days later.... sorry!!

Well on with my story, I finally got a job!!!! yay I feel so excited and blessed to finally have found a job. It did take a while but only God nows the right time and moment to grant us what we ask for. I will be an administrative assistant at a clinic, and I'm so very excited and scared. I have not actually started yet, I'm waiting to hear where to take a drug test and get finger printed and as soon as all that clears, I'm good to start. That means Derek and I will actually be able to afford to move out in the near future, that is very pleasing to my little heart =). Like I've said before I love his family they are the nicest people ever, but it really is time to move out and have our own place. 


On another note Iv'e been contemplating in sharing some recipes, now let me warn everyone I by no means am a cook. I actually don't like cooking ask my husband, he actually jokes around saying "I think, I married the wrong Mexican the one that doesn't cook." I just smile and say, "that's why I married you, because you don't mind." I love him! Anyways, that's why I want to share some of the foods I make at home for those newly weds that have no clue how to cook at all like I was. Thats to come soon...

It's our Anniversary

My, my, time flies when you are happy! Yesterday April 12, 2012 was Derek's and my 2 year wedding Anniversary. I'm truly happy and feel blessed to be married to such a wonderful individual that loves, cares, and respects me. Just knowing that the feeling is mutual makes me, oh so happy. I can remember when we first met, when he first asked me to be his girlfriend, the first I love you from Derek, his proposal, to our I do's. I sigh at the thought of our moments together, how in the four years I've known him we have grown not only as individuals but as a couple. 


Since it was our anniversary it was a day of celebration =). Originally we were suppose to go kayaking in San Diego, but because of laziness from both our parts we never made reservations( but it worked out because the day was cloudy and it was suppose to rain), we will for sure do it next month when the weather is more appropriate. We decided to go to Medieval Times in Buena Park and had blast. We got the celebration Packet, our anniversary was announced, we got our picture taken, we got cake, and some other goodies. Indeed it was so much fun, unfortunately our Green Knight didn't win that night but he was the runner up. 


Oh and I almost forgot to tell you guys, my wonderful husband got me a beautiful purple Orchid Plant. My very own first plant, we are planing to finally move out in the near future so he said it was time for me to commit to keeping something a live lol. I'm so happy to have received it lets just hope and pray it does not die on me. 


P.S. Iv'e got some news I'll post tomorrow
