Chocolate frosting sandwiched between vanilla sugar cookies
Know what tomorrow is? Pancake Tuesday, maybe one of my favorite dinners of the year!
I can’t make pancakes to save my life, but I try every year. Experimenting with different recipes, changing cooking methods, nothing’s worked so far.
Last year I had quite the fiasco. Honestly, I don’t remember the pancakes. I guess they were good (or gasp! maybe we used a mix last year! – don’t tell 😉 ) The real story starts after dinner. I came back to the kitchen and the electric griddle’s leg was sizzling away on the front eye of the stove!
Believe me when I say this is not like me at all. Yes, I’m a real klutz, but when it comes to safety (locking the doors, making sure the oven’s off,) I’m really careful – like OCD careful.
So, what happened was, after everything cooked – the pancakes and Field Roast Sausages, I put the griddle on the hot, but off, eye, and didn’t think about it again – until the smell of burning rubber emanated the kitchen!
This year I guess I’ll be pancaking with a three legged griddle. Wish me luck!
Something else I thought I’d never be able to make – sugar cookies! Probably last year, I finally got it.
These specific cookies were created thanks to leftover birthday frosting and a dream to pipe pretty designs on cookies.
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Sending you lots of love and cookies 🙂
