Tropical Trail Mix Pancakes

These pancakes have a mouthful of a name.  I chose the name because I added tropical nut and fruit trail mix to the batter.

I am a fan of pancakes.  I have made many pancake recipes and posted them on this blog.

Cocoa Brownies

I have been in a brownie making mood recently.  I made a box mix and a recipe called Bangor brownies just within the last month.  That doesn't bowed well for my healthy eating goals this year.

I made these for a craft night I had at my home.  I am going to get back into knitting.  Over a year ago, I knit a scarf.  I have actually only knit scarfs.  I think it's time I graduate to harder projects.  I think I am going to attempt a knit beret next.

Papa a la Huancaina

A few years ago, I went to Peru with my parents and a cousin.  It was a great trip.  We covered lots of ground in a short amount of time.  We walked, took a train, a bus, and a few airplanes.  

We saw Machu Picchu, Cusco, Arequipa, Lake Titicaca, and Lima.  We ate delicious food as well.  I like making food from countries I have visited.  It often takes me a long time to actually making the dishes though.  I went to Switzerland last summer and have a few recipes I want to try but haven't actually make yet.

Bangor Brownies

I heard a really funny story today.  I was taking an Uber.  I took the cheaper option, and so there were other travelers in the car.  When we dropped of one of the passengers, the driver told me that the man who had just exited the car was pretty upset.

The man hadn't realized that he was taking an Uber pool instead of the single passenger option.   In short, it took this man two hours to get home from the airport.  The driver hand picked up multiple passengers and dropped them off by the time the man arrived home.  The drive would have probably taken about 45 minutes without stops.  He would have arrived home sooner if he had just taken public transportation.

Lamb Tagine

This isn't the first time I made this recipe.  I made lamb tagine last June.  I used the same recipe as well.  The difference is that I used saffron this time.  I bought a small package of saffron in Spain.  

 This was a great recipe, which is why I made it twice.  I'm not sure how saffron affected the overall flavor.  I can't remember exactly how it tasted last time.  Last time I added dried apricots.  That was a tasty addition, and I probably should have added dried apricots this time as well.

German Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

I have jury duty on Monday.  It is only the second time in my life that I have had jury duty.

The first time, I wasn't selected to be on the jury.  I wanted to be selected so that I could have the experience.  This time I am a little busy at work, so I would prefer to not be selected.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Happy Martin Luther King Junior Day!  I am not working today because it is a federal holiday.  I celebrated by going to a waffle brunch.

The host made lots of waffles, and everyone else brought accompaniments.  It was very fun.
