Has anyone looked at a calendar? How is it already July? I feel like the year just started yet I look at my calendar and I am sure that I just switched it to July. At this point the year is more than halfway over and I cannot even wrap my head around how we got here. It just seems to keep flying by.
This month my life took on some major changes which I will be disclosing shortly. Some good, some not so good, but all things I can handle because I believe I can. 🙂 Positive attitude. Always a positive attitude.
However, with the flipping of the calendar, comes my monthly Secret Recipe Club reveal, and this month I was assigned Chit Chat Chomp written by Leigh, a Melbourne based home cook, amateur photographer and a lover of all things French. While she has so many recipes (especially the French ones but even beyond that!) I wanted to try, like Brioche with Chocolate Centers, Navarin d’agneau printanier, Quiche Lorraine, Croque madam and Croque monsieur (both of which I have made before, but would have loved to make her way), I didn’t have a lot of time to do much in the kitchen, and I needed something simple and comforting.
I wound up going for a Fall like recipe, her Apple Pancakes, for no other reason than it just sounded really good. I have been on a comfort food kick and pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. I had just bought a big bag of apples from the Farmers Market and figured I would use them in some recipes, and this one called my name. I did make two additions to her recipe, I replaced the caster sugar with brown sugar and added cinnamon to make it very fall like. I know I’m nuts with the summer heat upon us, but it was a nice little break and they tasted amazing. The recipe was very simple and I will definitely be using this again, Leigh, thank you!
