Fluffy Pancakes
Instead of vinegar, I add lemon juice to the measuring cup then pour in the milk and stir leaving it to sit while I mix the other ingredients. This produces a buttermilk when you have no buttermilk on hand. Not overmixing and allowing the batter to sit while the griddle heats produces very fluffy pancakes indeed. This batter is also easy to allow mix-ins. I always add vanilla. I enjoy subbing the white sugar for brown then adding mashed bananas as well. I also use gluten free flour everytime with wonderful results.

Baker's Secret Pie Crust
THE best pie crust for a cook whom struggled with pie crust. This one comes out perfect! I used all regular flour, but am sure an added element could be had by halfing it with cake flour. Also, my crust did not take all of the yolk, vinegar, water mixture. I followed the instructions for 5 TBS at a time and that was a perfect tip to not "over water" the crust.

Brunch Omelet Torte
So Good! Used bacon instead of ham. Baked in a springform pan and the presentation was excellent.
