Meal of the Week 14: One of a kind Pancakes

Here’s a recipe that I got from a local friend of mine here in Seattle:

Nan’s Protein packed Pancakes


  • 16oz Cottage Cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 heaping table spoons of flour
  • 1/4 cup oil



  • Mix all the ingredients in the blender. Then cook like regular pancakes.


Tips: This recipe is actually best if you let the pancakes cool before eating them. If you eat them right off the pan they tend to be a bit gooey from the cottage cheese. So make the recipe and then share them for a nice family breakfast. This recipe makes enough to serve 3 people.


Café con leche

I swear that two years ago when I looked online for free crochet tutorials/patterns there were like 4. Literally – a lady bug, an octopus, and um… yeah. AND there were no pictures! Well ladies and gents, the internet is providing more and more interesting and free awesomeness right at your fingertips. Here’s my latest creation, courtesy of Ana Paula’s free pattern.

Oh and there’s more fun projects and links in crochet on the way – including the first pattern I’m writing! Stayed tuned for more yarn-o-licious fun!

Meal of the Week 13: Kale Chips

Snack Attack!!! How am I so late in discovering this vitamin filled amazingness??

So I totally burned my first batch and I undercooked the second, but I think the third time will be the charm.... if I can eat any more? (and I haven't even had dinner yet ooops).

Here's a link to the recipe I used:

I also used the pre-washed pre-cut ready to cook Kale from Trader Joe's so the time to make is LITERALLY cook time plus 1 min.

Yum. Just Yum. Thanks internet for another great recipe.
