My-Hop Pancakes
WOW, these are good! My daughter loved them, after turning her nose up at Cooks Illustrated's "Best Buttermilk Pancakes" (they are so right about so many things ... but not this). These My-Hops are soooo good even without any butter or syrup (as I like to eat mine sometimes). Fluffy and light ... easy and really delicious. The only thing I need to remember is to leave time to refrigerate the batter for 30-60 minutes =) I love that you only need one egg and that all of the other ingredients are ones I almost always have on hand. Thrilled to have finally found our go-to pancake recipe after trying many recipes and supposedly awesome (and expensive) mixes, including the one used at Disney Resorts. This recipe is simply wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts
Holy moly -- this was a little bit of work but worth every minute! This chicken was truly to die for. The recipe says it's ready in 25 minutes - NOT. First, you have to let it marinade at least an hour in the fridge, then it has to sit out for 15 minutes in the buttermilk, and then another 15 minutes in the flour mixture. If I had waited that long for the 15 minutes parts, this might have been even better but as it was I gave about 10 in the buttermilk and 5 on the rack with flour and then cooked it up. WOW. I just can't say enough about how juicy and delicious this was. The only thing I think I did wrong was setting it on paper towels when I took it out of the oil --- immediately out it was succulent (hard to stop eating it as I was plating!) but with dinner it was a bit drier. Next time I won't let it blot. So darn good I'm already putting it on the list to make for both sets of parents when they visit this holiday. Thanks Chef John!!!

Lemon Basmati Rice
Delish! Made as shown but sprinkled ginger on while rice s sauteeing since I didnt have fresh ginger. Wonderful even before I salted and peppered it -- very moist!
