Creamy Avacado Dressing

May is here, spring has sprung, and the trees are starting to turn a beautiful bright green. My eating habits tend to follow the weather, if its warm and bright, then my body just craves salads. When winter comes, eating salad just becomes a chore, I run from them towards soups and stews and all those comfort type foods. While I am craving salads, I also have this weird inability to eat the same thing two days straight, so I need to create a variety. I find the easiest way to change it up throughout the week is with different salad dressings. I can make a couple different ones and just store them in the fridge for the week.

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

My kids LOVE pancakes, but really what kid doesn’t? This recipe was created though because I wanted a pancake that I could love as well. I think my kids would be happy with any vehicle for syrup, one day I am tempted to just put cut up cardboard on their plates with syrup and see if they notice. I, however, need more than just a syrup sponge. I wanted a pancake that could stand up on its own. That just needed a touch of syrup and a little pad of butter and would still taste excellent. I also needed a pancake batter that would come together quickly, and that I could make with only a few sips of coffee in my system. I think I have met all of my goals with this recipe. I can get this batter ready in the time it takes for the griddle to heat up and it is super simple to put together. No sifting, or folding, or whipping needed; just a little measuring and a little stirring and you have beautiful, tasty, fluffy pancakes you would be happy to get at your favorite little diner.
