Despite frequent sweeping and mopping, there always seems to be a thin film of flour covering my kitchen floor. And I wouldn't have it any other way. We all need familiar ground under our feet from time to time.

For your viewing pleasure: I finally conquered the pancake. If my life were a superhero movie, pancakes would be my nemesis. I am perpetually drawn to them, but they always win. They are too floppy, too mushy, too thin, too dense, they don't brown properly or they burn, they are too sweet or too tangy...you get the idea. I'd just about given up on pancakes until--viola!--the perfect recipe. Unfortunately, as life is never so perfect, I cannot remember what that recipe was. So, like a good superhero flick, I will leave you awaiting the sequel, in which you will learn, once and for all, how I conquered the pancake. Until then, enjoy this buttery golden image of contentment and satisfaction. I will complete the picture with a recipe soon. And if you have any pancake adventures you would like to share (and foolproof techniques I should try) send them my way!
I am a professor at a large research university in Texas. I love to cook, bake, shop, and entertain. And recently, I had a baby. He is my world, but now my world is so different. Much more humorous, much less predictable, with far less time and far more yoga pants. Welcome to my journey as a Professor Mom.
