Chocolate Chip Pancakes


My family loves chocolate chip pancakes. In fact, I have very rarely made any other kind. One morning, when we lived in Ohio, I had made chocolate chip pancakes. My husband was talking about them at work later that day and most of those he worked with had never had chocolate chip pancakes. Those poor things!

I don't recall ever making pancakes from scratch. I've always used a mix. Today I wanted to try homemade since I was so happy with the homemade waffles.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar (I used brown this time)
1 1/4 cups milk, warmed slightly in the microwave
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
chocolate chips

In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Then toss in some chocolate chips. Lots if you like a lot of chocolate chips and less if you want to go sparingly. I always eyeball it. Then in a small bowl, add milk, egg and butter and whisk together. Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir together gently. Scoop by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot, greased griddle/skillet and cook until golden brown on each side. Enjoy!

These turned out really yummy. I forgot to add vanilla this time and think I will add that in next time though. These went together very simply and quickly. I got about 10 pancakes out of this. So you might want to double it. I only needed to feed three people when I made these so this amount worked for us. Next time when I make them for the whole family I will definitely have to make double. These definitely worked for me!

By the way, did you spot the hidden Mickey? :)

Happy eating!

LOVE chocolate Chip pancakes, but I never make them since SOMEONE in my house can't do chocolate...guess I could just make a few for me, but Josh's aversion is just a good excuse for me to stay away...I may have to give in soon though, those sound REALLY good!
I love chocolate and on a pancake even better. Starting your morning with chocolate sounds WONDERFUL!!! to me.

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
