Raspberry Cooler | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

I’ve been transferred at work and the whole world has gone insane. Stress is pouring off me in waves. Don’t get too close, or my insanity might splash onto you. I don’t want you to catch my crazy. Unless, of course, you’re going to bring me a cocktail, then you can sit right next to me, and we’ll be best friends.

This Raspberry Cooler is sweet and tart. Watch out because you won’t realize you’re drinking alcohol. You will probably have a big smile on your face, though, and that can never be bad.

Don’t forget that if you don’t want to pay ridiculous prices for a bottle of raspberry vodka, it’s perfectly easy to make your own if you have a little patience. All you need is a clean jar, some vodka, some raspberries, and two weeks. Just let the raspberries steep in the vodka, then strain it into another clean jar. Voila. Raspberry vodka for half the price. Use frozen berries in the off season for an even cheaper option.

Awesome in February

Awesome in February

Can we get some sunshine, please? I’m ready ready ready for this nasty rain and snow to go away. I got to throw a last minute party for a dear friend this, and it was a blast. I got to make Swiss & Bacon Dip, and that’s always a good thing. Then I got to attend a beautiful wedding for that dear friend and watch her smile and laugh the entire day, and it was absolutely perfect.

Since the weather was so nasty, I watched approximately one billion movies. One of my favorites was Arrival. If you have a love of language and you haven’t seen this film yet, do not wait another minute. It was beautiful to look at and so thoughtful. 

I’m almost finished reading MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood. Her books are so frighteningly relevant right now. If you haven’t been terrified by the Handmaid’s Tale recently, I suggest you pick up a copy.

Internet foods were on fire. This chocolate truffle cake is just bonkers, you guys! 

These pretzel dogs with cheese sauce are making me hungry. Gimme.

If a cupcake could ever be elegant, it would have to be this Valentine’s Surprise Chocolate High Hat Cupcake. It’s just beautiful. 

Chicken Parmesan from Awesome on 20

Your favorites this month were Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels, Chicken Parmesan, and Passion Fruit Green Tea. Can I come over for dinner?

The days are getting longer, and I’m excited to see what’s coming my way. Be awesome, friends.

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.
