I pulled it off!!!!!!

I made truly yummy, and utterly delicous pancakes!!!!!!!!  I like to mix breakfast up for the family, so this morning I thought I would make pancakes.  So I found a recipe:

1 egg
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk ( I usually add a bit more to my desired consistency)
2 Tablespoons oil
1 Tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Only I made a few tweaks to the recipe. I had some unbleached pastry flour so I decided to use that. I also used I Tablespoon of pure 100% maple syrup instead of the sugar. I then added 2 Tablespoons of butter instead of the oil!  Oh, and one more thing: I used raw milk since that is what we had this morning.  The result: FABULOUS!
A perfect light consistency, and yummy butteriness!!!!!!  I only had my phone so the picture is not all that fabulous...but the pancakes were great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunar Moth

 A Lunar Moth found a temporary home on our house. It was our little guest for a few days, then it moved on. We believe it was waiting out the rain.  I have never in my life seen such a moth. Crazy!!!!!!!

Strawberry Cupcakes

I made strawberry cupcakes for Hazel's birthday playdate. They came out yummy, so I thought I would share.  In retrospect, I did not add the two egg whites in the recipe (guess I was a bit preoccupied and didn't notice that ingredient...oops), now that I read it through.  Guess what? They came out ok. I used raw sugar, and unbleached cake flour.  A simple vanilla frosting recipe later, and we had strawberry cupcakes for 6 kids!  Very simple!  Very yummy!  Try it!
