Social Media Scores With Recipe

I love the thought of social media; keeping up with family and friends, reuniting with people I used to work with and went to school with and if you’re into it, what about all of those fun quizzes and games. When I first created a page on one of the sites, I would check it almost daily to see what everyone had been doing or what their thoughtful comment would be for the day. It was very rare if I missed more than two days in a row. Today it is just the opposite. Seldom do I go on and check my page anymore. I’m not sure why really. I’m not a social media snob. Maybe the new just wore off or maybe I’m too busy. Some days if I log on, I feel like it’s more drama than I want or need in my life. Don’t misunderstand me, I love all the people I connect to through social media, I just don’t need to be privy to every private detail of their life. One of the type posts that I will usually always stop and check out is recipes. It is very interesting to me to see what kinds of foods that people like and what they are eating. There are healthy recipes, vegan recipes, mostly lots of butter and fat recipes and tons of desserts. A recipe that recently caught my eye was barely a recipe at all. It was a picture of a banana and two eggs, that’s it. The next framed picture showed a plate of pancakes. I figured if I could have pancakes, fairly healthy (because you know I’m using some butter and maple syrup) and that easy, I had to give it a try. The result was surprisingly good. The flavor was a little more “eggy” than a regular pancake, but since the batter is mostly egg, that was to be expected and the texture was more like a crepe than a pancake, but I love crepes too, so no complaints there. I did add a little salt and vanilla, which I’m sure helped the flavor. Next go around I’ll likely try some cinnamon to help with the “egginess,” and maybe some blueberries or tofu. Well, that’s me, taking the simple out of it, but it’s such a basic recipe that you could make endless variations. The batter is thin, so expect it to spread and do not have heat higher than medium because the mixture can burn quickly and you need the eggs to be cooked all the way through. Looks like I now have a reason to check my social media sites a little more often. FLOURLESS PANCAKES 1 ripe banana 2 eggs Add-ins: vanilla, salt, cinnamon, fresh fruit, chocolate chips, etc… In a medium bowl, mash banana; add eggs and whip until thoroughly combined. Pour about ¼ cup mixture onto a greased medium-hot skillet or griddle and cook about one minute, turn pancake to cook other side about one minute more. Serve with butter and syrup if desired. Makes about five pancakes.
