Pancake recipe without the chocolate chips. These pancakes are soft, gently sweet and an excellent breakfast to serve in bed for you, momma...
This morning, just like any Saturday mornings, my husband made me my favorite coffee. As I was sipping my drink, I conciously tried to savor the delectable aroma seeping through my nostrils as it brings calmness to my spirit and it brings relaxation in my mind. Ah, the feeling and the high, feeling of heaven, I guess. Once again bringing the sweetness back to my mouth. I purposely isolate the cup in between the palms of my hand so that the smell will not escape -ever. This once in a while feeling of utter bliss...
They say, " OFTEN DO THE THINGS THAT BRING YOU JOY." Since coffee brings an intense,wonderful feeling, why am I not drinking my coffee everyday? Why do I isolate drinking my coffee on Saturdays or Sundays. Huh! Because coffee, after the initial feeling of heaven, brings me chills - in not a good way. I shake and I panic. I was drinking 8 cups of coffee a day. I drank it like water, as you can see. I realized that I have to give it up in order for me to keep my mental health. So I cut it into once in awhile particularly Saturdays or Sundays. Everything should be in moderation, they say.
So how is my coffee, related with these fluffy and soft pancakes? It is because when I drink "my once in a while coffee," it has to be paired with these fluffy pancakes. It is just the perfect combo - like pea and a pod, like peanut butter and jelly OR, Adam and Eve together (?), they are just match made in heaven. But the only good thing about these pancakes is that, they bring the good kind of chills and shivers because they are delectable and melt in the mouth pancakes. Unlike my coffee, I can eat it everyday and savor it the whole day without bad consequences - maybe on the waist area but I refuse to think about that for now...
