Sour Cream Pancakes:

Breakfast food really is my very favorite food. Eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, quiche, frittata, french toast, bread pudding, muffins, doughnuts, eggs benedict- and of course, the humble pancake. Pancakes are easy to make, yet deliver so much- they have a tender, moist cake crumb, perform fantastically as butter and syrup delivery systems, and are the classic weekend morning comfort breakfast food.
I love sour cream pancakes because they are incredibly moist and delicious, and extra decadent. I use sour cream in my cakes all the time to up increase moistness and richness; it works much the same here. It also adds a really lovely mild tang to these pancakes and increases fluffiness- try them and see!
1 cup sour cream (full fat)
½ cup flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon melted butter
More butter for frying
Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda and set aside. 
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, sugar, butter and vanilla bean paste. 
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together until just barely combined.
In a cast iron or non stick pan over medium heat, add some butter (or use a nonstick electric griddle set to medium high heat). Pour ¼ cup of batter for each pancake; cook until you see little bubbles in the pancake and the edges  are starting to look cooked. Flip and cook until the pancakes are done, another minute or so.

Place the pancakes on a baking sheet in a 200 degree F oven to keep warm. Serve with butter and heated maple syrup. Devour!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of

Samosas with Yogurt Sauce

I love exploring many kinds of cuisine in my kitchen because I can control the spice level, and in the case of this recipe, the use of cilantro. Cilantro lovers out there- sub it info the parsley here. I have the gene that makes cilantro taste like soap, which limits my ability to enjoy some dishes in restaurants, but is easily rectified in my own kitchen. I hope you enjoy! Ingredients:  3 russet potatoes 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped 2 teaspoons curry powder 5 ounces peas Six 8 inch flour tortillas 4 ounces Greek yogurt Oil, salt, pepper, vinegar 4 tablespoons butter Method: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
