For the sake of pancakes!

My first recipe on my blog.. *does the weirdo dance*
Pancakes have always been my thing for breakfast, heck breakfast itself is my favorite meal of the day! On a busy morning, it’s easy to let breakfast not make it to one of your top priorities, but having something to eat before you start your day could really make a difference. If you are one of those people who have super busy mornings then you can even prepare this batter the previous night and cook it up in the morning. So here you go, one of my favorite take on pancakes! ūüėÄ


Ingredients 

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3¬†tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • a small pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • cooking spray
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • blueberries (optional)

 

Directions

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into the milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. Add the vanilla essence to the mixture.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet and top it with some blueberries and chocolate chips.

 

Cook until bubbles appear on the surface and only flip with a spatula when the bubbles pop and create holes on the pancake. Cook until browned on the other side.

You can always substitute the blueberries and chocolate chips for your favorite fruits and toppings. You can experiment with apples, bananas, strawberries, nutella, whipped cream, roasted pecans, walnuts, carrots, sweet potatoes, raisins, oats etc. Go ahead, go crazy!

Honey, pancake syrup or maple syrup whatever your jazz is,add and enjoy! ūüôā

Easy Come, Easy Go.

People come and go. Everyone that has been in your life has been there for a reason, to teach you, to love you or to experience life with you.

One of the reasons I’m writing this post is because lately I’ve been pondering about all the people that have been in my life. Some have stayed but some drift apart because of obvious reason or just like that. Initially, I hated losing people who were so dear to me. I didn’t want them to part ways with me. It’s only now that I’ve started accepting that this is how life is. Although many of my friends are away from me, everything snaps back into place when we meet. It’s like nothing has changed between us.
There are people who’ve hurt me, loved me, used me, ignored me, adored me etc.. all these people I am extremely thankful for because one thing they all have in common is that, they have all thought me important lessons in life whether good or bad.

I think we should all be thankful for the good times and the bad times we’ve had and take them all as lessons because God doesn’t give us the people we want, He gives us the people we need in our lives. He gives us these people to make us the person we are meant to be.
The people who come into our lives might not know the reason why they are in our lives, even we wouldn’t but trust me there’s a reason.

So whether a person comes into your life for a reason, season or a lifetime; cherish their stay, learn and grow as an individual.
Don’t stress over the small things in life because nothing is permanent. A moment is what you make of it.

Spontaneity is Key

A goal without a plan is just a wish! 
–¬†Antoine de Saint-Exup√©ry

Well, im pretty sure Antoine of 1900s was a man of great and precise planning. Who wouldn’t be? We humans are all creatures of habit. We love planning our days ahead and get disappointed when things don’t go the way we want it to go.

So why not avoid this disappointment and not plan things ahead and just go with the flow?

Obviously its scary because you are inviting a lot of uncertainty into your life but it’s this fear that holds us back from the glory of spontaneity. By letting go, you open yourself to what the world has to offer and what you can do by living and not by just existing.
Once you accept what life has to offer, you realize that not having a plan is actually the best plan of all!

So breathe, smile and just go with the flow!
Take risks in life, if you succeed you’ll be happy but if you don’t then you become wise and learn from it.
Make mistakes because mistakes have the power to turn you into a better person than you were before.

Take the plunge and don’t have room for regret!

The Clueless Initiation

In today’s world, there’s a blog post about anything and everything. All around people are blogging, tweeting, posting, pinning etc.. It’s not unless you dig in you realize how little you know what you want to blog about.

Oh well here’s another blogger all set to stumble and stagger her way through the ‘bloggy’ path. I’m not going to promise my readers a set of persistent and¬†persevering articles but share with the world my unostentatious experiences and some of my favorite recipes.

 Until next time, this your dessert darling saying adios!
