Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes

I made pancakes a few weeks back, and they were beautiful. I got the “OMG how did you make them so perfect” comments. So i thought, “why not just do a post?”. Smart right?   People prefer to grab a pancake mix off the shelves (I used to do that), which is okay, but making…

The Garlic Butter Shrimp Sauce Invention

The Fried Rice, Grilled Chicken and Salad Experiment
