Some Recipes

I’ve been having fun cooking lately. I feel like I go through stages. Sometimes it seems like an impossibility to get inspired and then other times I want to cook everything!
I’m totally in the “cook everything” stage. It might have something to do with being pregnant and wanting to eat everything??
So, I thought I would share some recipes with you.
For those of you with an iPhone, check out the Whole Foods App. It’s got tons of great recipes and you can even search for a recipe with whatever you have on hand.

One of their recipes that I tried and love is the “Dutch Oven Pancake”. It tastes kind of like french toast. Now I have to be honest when I read the name I thought “really?!?!”
Growing up with an older brother a “dutch oven” has a whole different meaning. Needless to say it scarred me many times for life!

It’s such an easy recipe that I totally had the girls make it with me.
I’m sure you could also get adventurous with this and add fruit (blueberries or pears) or chocolate chips…
Anyway, here it is:

Dutch/German Pancakes:

2 TBLSP unsalted butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole milk

Optional Toppings:
Lemon Juice
Powdered sugar
Maple Syrup

Preheat oven to 425*F.
Melt butter over low heat in a 10- or 11- inch cast iron skillet. (I just used a regular stainless steel one)
Whisk eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in flour and milk until mixture is no longer lumpy.
Pour the batter into the skillet over the melted butter.
Bake for 25 minutes until pancake is puffed and golden brown.

Remove from the oven, transfer onto a plate and cut into wedges.
Sprinkle whichever toppings you choose and serve!
