WOW!! that little break turned into a HUGE break! I'm glad to be back. I've been doing lots in the kitchen, more mishaps than anything else but that's okay because when you finally get a recipe right you know it's got to be good. :]
So in Lu of St. Patrick's Day, which is this Saturday, I thought I would should you what I do every year for breakfast. I've seen a bunch of other things on pinterest that are really cute, But I think I'll still stick with the shamrock shaped ones. They're just so cute!
Go here for pancake recipe or use your favorite pancake recipe
When everything is mixed together put about 5 drops of green food coloring into batter. You can add more or less if you want to. It depends on how green you would like them.
Making the shamrock shape
Use a large spoon. Fill it will batter. Drop a circle of batter down on the griddle and pull down to the left center. Then with more batter, drop another circle of batter off to the left of the first circle and pull some down to the right center. This should make a small heart shape. Repeat action on both sides of your first little heart and finish with a little tail coming from the middle of each of the heart shape and pulling down. Now you have your shamrock. It will take a few tries and if you need to go a little slower, turn the temperature of your griddle down a little so the first little heart shape won't cook so quickly. Once you've got the action down it goes really quick.
Have a fun and healthy St. Patrick's Day!!
