Saturday brunch begs for pancakes. We were invited to a friend's house for such a morning feast and get-together, where the guests volunteered to bring a specialty to share. When it comes to breakfast food, my most accomplished specialty is pancakes, so it was out with the griddle this morning.
I learned this skill from my father, who liked to fill Saturday mornings with batter and flapjacks. He also referred to his western Pennsylvania roots and brought in regional flavors, such as buckwheat pancakes. Since those days, I have carried forward the pancake skills, which my wife appreciates. And for a Saturday brunch, it was the perfect dish. So if you are enthusiastic for flapjacks, let me know, and we'll cook 'em up next time we are together!
