Rain on my Parade

January 16, 2010 at 11:48 AM 13 comments

Hey there. Good news…I am no longer in (as much of) a funk – an hour run + lemon blueberry pancakes (recipe here) is always a good way to start a Saturday morning.

My mom made restaurant-quality ‘cakes while I used my new Aerolatte milk frother to make Irish Breakfast Tea lattes, topped with homemade vanilla sugar.

Meyer Lemon Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

…topped with a dollop of plain Oikos & drizzle of agave.

The melody of tangy lemon zest, tart blueberries, creamy yogurt, and sweet agave was just right! Off to Costco with my dad for a couple school supplies (and samples), and then it’s time to bake. Speaking of school, I was just informed that California is going to be hit with a HUMONGOUS storm…starting tomorrow! I have no idea how/when in the world I am supposed to drive back to school now – bah, stressing already.

Have yourself a relaxing Saturday,

~ Hillary

    Those pancakes do look like restaurant quality…better even. :) Thanks for sharing…I’m at Starbucks studying now and my stomach is grumbling. I’m tempted to eat here but I’d soo much rather go home and cook. Hope you survive the storm okay.

    …and the coldest part of the storm is supposed to arrive Thursday. Looks like you’ll be detouring south…

    Lemon and blueberry sounds like exactly the right combo to get out of a funk. Fab!

    Those pancakes look awesome. And tea latte? That’s something I’d like to hear more about. Never had one of those.

      It’s just like a regular latte, but substitute the espresso with black tea – Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey, etc…

    How do you make vanilla sugar? Yum!

    • 12. Hillary  |  January 16, 2010 at 10:38 PM

      Slice 1 vanilla bean to reveal beans and place in a jar of raw sugar. Let sit for a long while (months). Enjoy in coffee and on top of baked goods. Yes, it is YUM.
