Another Westie

Hello!  My name is Dee and my two lovely friends Candis and Radhika have allowed me to blog with them.  Let me tell you about myself.  I have two kids and a husband whom my world revolves around, I love to cook and bake, I like to play video games,  I like to read fantasy novels, I really like Guiness when it’s cold out and a good dry red wine any time of the year.  I am a girl who is always trying something new and since I have a bit of an obsessive personality, I get easily distracted so if you notice I have not posted in a while, it’s because something else has grabbed my attention.  But, no worries, I will always be back!  I am actually hoping that blogging with friends will inspire me to post more often.  I currently have my own personal blog that I have not posted to in six months…eek!

Anyhoo, let’s see, what have I missed?  Ah, pancakes!  I like my pancakes with syrup, fruit, powdered sugar, whatever I am in the mood for that morning or evening as pancakes are a hit any time of the day.  This is my absolute favorite recipe for pancakes adapted from

Fluffy Pancakes


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • cooking spray


  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

Servings – 4  – Please note:  I always double this recipe.  The leftovers are always good to serve the kiddo’s during the week (if there are any leftovers).
