Contemplating the realm of things you can never have too much of. Books. Pillows. Books. Funny cat videos. Chocolate. Books. Notebooks. Tea towels. Books. Movies. Time to relax. Carbs.

Subcategory of never having enough carbs: pancake recipes

I’ve written already about my dad’s obsession with achieving the perfect pancakes, and while I’m not as inventive as he is, I have inherited the urge to keep searching for perfection. I might be open to the possibility of eating pancakes every day of my life. I just can’t see that getting boring.

I’m sharing this recipe because it’s unbelievably easy. Chuck all the ingredients in the blender and blitz. Pour the batter straight from your blender’s pitcher into your hot pan to keep things nice and tidy. You could practically make these in your sleep.

These pancakes are also different from other pancake recipes I’ve posted here before. They’re much thinner, so you can eat a decent stack of them. Four at a time would not go amiss, provided you have ample butter and syrup. It’s pure heaven.

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, pancakes are where it’s at. Blender Pancakes are so easy, it’s impossible to say no. Get into it.

Blender Pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 16 pancakes

Blender Pancakes are the easiest way to get amazing, syrup drenched pancakes in your mouth.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Butter for frying

Instructions

  1. Add all your ingredients, except for the butter for frying, into a blender. Use long pulses to combine all the ingredients until smooth. Check to see if you need to scrape the pitcher with a rubber spatula if any flour has stuck to it, and give it another blitz after that.
  2. Allow your batter to rest while you heat up a griddle or a large skillet lightly greased with butter. Once it's hot, detach your blender's pitcher from the motor, and pour your batter into the hot pan to make small circles. Make sure you leave yourself space to flip. I can make two pancakes at a time in my large skillet.
  3. Cook the pancakes for two to three minutes on the first side. Once bubbles start to form and you see a change in color around the edges, they're ready to flip. Because they're quite thin, they'll only need about a minute on the second side.
  4. Serve warm with butter and syrup.

Blue Cheese Burger

Blue Cheese Burger | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

Some day I might get my life together and bring you a legit, blow your mind recipe. But for right now, we’re eating food that is almost too good to be true. So much deliciousness with so little effort hardly seems real. 

Who knows what’s going on with my life. I certainly don’t. I just can’t get it together. Blah. Whatever.

Let’s eat cheeseburgers. And not just any cheeseburgers. We’re going to mix up our favorite burger recipe or be extra lazy and pick up some quality burger patties from the store. Get yourself some delicious buns. Slice an onion and sautee it until soft and golden if you like. 

The real star of this show is the blue cheese spread. It’s child’s play. Soften a block of cream cheese, crumble a wedge of blue cheese, six ounces should do it, add them both together in a bowl, and smash away with a fork until combined. Spread this mixture generously onto your bun. Don’t skimp. I mean, really go for it. It’s just so good.

Brie En Croute

Brie En Croute | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do versus what I should do. There are a lot of work stresses that can’t be avoided. I need the paycheck, so there’s nothing I can do about it. But in the rest of my life, I want to stop putting unnecessary pressure on myself. I want to feel relaxed and happy. I wonder if I can set aside my need to be perfect and productive and just let myself do what feels good. 

I mean, eventually I’ll have to clean the bathroom and do the laundry, but there are things I tell myself that I need to do that can probably just be set aside until I’m in the mood and it feels right. But there’s also a part of me that feels ridiculous just typing these words. Relaxed and happy? That’s for lazy people. What’s the right way to go? I’m asking for a friend.

I can tell you that what I almost always want to eat is cheese wrapped in carbs. Brie En Croute is where it’s at. Butter, flaky puff pastry wrapped around gooey brie filled with something slightly sweet and something crunchy. It’s pretty much pure heaven.

A recipe is not necessary here. Get yourself a wheel of brie and some store-bought puff pastry. Check your puff pastry package for the recommended oven setting. Place your brie in the middle of your pastry, dig around in your fridge for some fancy jam, or not so fancy but not super sweet, then go to  your pantry and grab some nuts. Pile these up on top of your cheese. 

Next, fold the pastry over your cheese and make sure it’s sealed up completely, not like mine in the photo. Brush it with a beaten egg and bake for about 20 minutes or until your pastry is puffed and golden. Serve it warm and gooey with some crackers.

I know what I need, and I know what I want. Here’s to finding balance and eating more cheese.
