IT IS SUMMER. Finally. Today was one of those days when everyone's Facebook status was "Its so hot!" "Is it going to be this hot all summer?"... I mean, what? C'mon. Its been hot outside for three days and da peeps are already complaining?
I'm sorry but like - ya gotta deal. In the northeast, we get warmth for a short three months. Can everyone take a chill pill and just enjoy the warmth? Or...enjoy the hum of their air conditioner? Whatever it is, just let me enjoy the humid, sticky heat of New York City and the cool summer breeze of the Jersey Shore.
So even though its hot outside, homegirls gotta eat. Let's talk about breakfast.
When I first introduced these pancakes to my Real Foodies in January, da peeps went cray. I meannnnn... I am a huge fan of waking up and eating breakfast of all varieties, but how incredible are pancakes?
Like. Let's go there together. Close your eyes. And. Imagine its SUNDAY. You're tired and ya need coffee. Ya shuffle to the kitchen ... and ... you realize ITS SUNDAY. You can make yourself a bonafide delish breakfast. Something filling, sweet and indulgent. And you can consume it while smashing your health goals.
So let's do this thang.
