Rice Cooker Berry Pancake

Sometimes I feel, as a food blogger, that I’m supposed to have certain standards about how I make my food and what ingredients I use.  Sometimes I feel that way, but then I think to myself, screw it this giant pancake in the rice cooker thing is just too nifty to pass up.  Yes, nifty.  Not having to stand in front of the stove for patiently waiting for pancakes to cook perfectly is pretty nifty.  Being able to cook “pancakes” with the same bowl you mix them in is also quite nifty.

I was sold, and I have to say the results were even better than I expected. It has the texture of a pancake, it tastes like  pancake, it even kind of looks like pancake with the golden outer later and fluffy interior.

Strawberry French Toast Grilled Cheese

I love the combination of fruit and cheese, and when you make a sandwich out of it with french toast it becomes a wonderful breakfast treat.  The more traditional version of this sandwich uses cream cheese instead of deli cheese, but I tried that version and thought this would be even better with some swiss or provologne. I think I was right, as my second try I used baby swiss and the slight nuttiness of the cheese made for a heartier (and tastier imo) sandwich.

For extra sweet decadent goodness, serve this with maple syrup or strawberry compote! I just used a little powdered sugar and that was good too.

truly tasty turkey burgers

Truly Tasty Turkey Burgers

Yesterday we had a beautiful Sunday evening and so I wanted to grill out, and we decided to try out grilled turkey burgers.  I found this recipe called Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers. It looked pretty good but I amped up the flavors with soy sauce, worcestershire and hot sauce, and came up with a more alliterative name (very important). The recipe was a success; I don’t usually like turkey burgers that much unless they are loaded with flavorful toppings, but these patties were quite good without a lot of extra stuff.
