Moving Things Around

Moving Things Around

I move things around a lot in my home: furniture, lamps, lamp shades, things on the walls, in the kitchen, on the counter, in the drawers, etc. Which makes the husband a bit crazy…he practically has to follow behind me with a putty knife and […]

Wall of People That I Love

Wall of People That I Love

So, here are my thoughts on family photos. It’s pretty simple…early and often. I love them so much. I spent money when I didn’t have much because I felt it was so important to capture my babies at every stage. I had read an article […]

Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes

Swedish Pancakes

If you are familiar with any part of my family or extended family, you have probably been to a pancake breakfast, lunch or dinner. Usually after a morning of water skiing or a late church service.

My mom and Grandmother were famous for these Swedish delights. From the littles to the big ones, we all love these.

Harry loves his with lingonberries, which he used to call “chocolate berries” when he was little. My mom loved them cold the next day, warmed up for 20 seconds in the microwave with sugar rolled up and eaten like a (for lack of better word) cigarette. I loved mine (pre-celiac) with lots of cold butter and hot Mrs. Buttersworth’s, then rolled up and eaten in slices. My dad liked them the same way.

Rick likes his with butter, Mrs. Buttersworth’s (no Log Cabin, no pure maple syrup in this family…nothing fancy for us!) and whipped cream and sometimes strawberries! As you can see, we all have our favorite way of preparing our pancakes but the recipe, never really written down, always seems to work out.

I start with at least 6 eggs ( mom said 1 egg per person)

whisk eggs

add 3 cups milk
teaspoon  salt
1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 C flour

I have a pan from my mom that is seasoned very well. Get it screaming hot, then reduce heat to medium-high. I spray it with PAM, then put a ladle full of batter in the pan.

Now the fun part…

Pick up the pan and swirl the batter in a circle motion to cover the bottom of the pan. After bubbles appear and it’s been a little bit…flip. Now, if you are serving a large group like I usually do, make a big pile and keep warm in the oven…they are best when HOT!

Cheers!

Window Boxes

Window Boxes

Honestly, they are a pain in my arse. I struggle because mine are mostly on the north side of the house. I, of course, added them…hmmm possibly the builder left them off because nothing likes to grow in the cold shade? Anywho, I thought impatiens […]

https://tieks.com So I have been looking at these shoes for over a year. Mainly on Pinterest, which I am sure has my algorithm all figured out and knows that I keep eyeing them up. Well, I finally pushed the “place order” button…about a week later […]
