Chocolate chip pancakes from scratch

I was gonna use insta-pancake mix, only to realize the expiration date had long passed. Ergo:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well and pour in milk, egg, and melted butter. Mix until smooth.

Heat oiled frying pan over medium heat. Pour batter on, making as large a pancake as you want. Add chocolate chips after you flip. Serve to hungry college students on any Sunday 🙂

Rosemary marinade ahi tuna

In Gluten Free, Main Course on July 4, 2012 at 5:12 pm

A twist on my previous ahi tuna

~3 servings


1 lb sushi grade ahi tuna (very important that ti is sushi grade so no one gets salmonella or whatever)

1/2 cup white wine
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Let sit in marinade for at least a 1/2 hour. Then pan sear for 15-30 seconds on each side, depending on how rare you want it. (I like it extra rare!)

I added some salad with date vinegar, cheese with Camembert, and some mushrooms sauteed in garlic, butter and white wine. Serve with white wine and enjoy.
