I was on the phone with my aunt the other day, last week actually, and she brought up my blog – “Zoe hasn’t posted anything in a week! What’s going on?” I laughed, telling her that I had written up about eight (including the sandwich wraps) posts within the past week, the only thing that delayed me to post them sooner was the photos. The other thing is that I’m always getting ideas and I write up a draft post, planning to share this wonderful creation, and all these drafts pile up.
I’ve had the idea for these pancakes simmering for a while on the back burner – nearly two months, and I’m only getting to it now – after I saw a recipe for macaroon pancakes on 101 Cookbooks. I’ll be honest that I wasn’t sure if these would work out and if they did, how would people (my family) like them? How well would they be received? Any shadows of doubt vanished after my brother told me they looked like the ones we used to have – meaning pre-SCD and gluten-free days. He happily ate two (they’re filling) – at the end of the video (where you see this plate of pancakes, pictured, taken to the table) he said, “Pancakes!” but the camera didn’t pick it up that well – or maybe the volume has to be cranked up a bit? I’m not sure. Everyone else liked them, too.
