Old-Fashioned Pancakes
I did this recipe just this minute, craving some 'diner style' pancakes and I have to admit, they were pretty tasty. For those complaining of the salt, be sure to sift the dry mixture a few times to evenly distribute everything. When the recipe says to sift, do it at least twice. Also, be sure you are using baking POWDER and not baking SODA(which is very salty). This is a common mistake(hence his reference during the video I guess)They were a little thick, but they cooked up nicely and we had them for dinner lol. I would try again, but maybe with a dash more milk and maybe a 1/2 tsp less baking powder. I liked them, though, overall! UPDATE: 9/13/14 - Did these pancakes twice this past week. Once with 1 1/2 cups of milk and it came out beautifully with just a tad more milk. Melt in your mouth delicious. Also, I cooled them on top of a cookie grid so they wouldn't get soggy(don't stack them!)and froze them in a freezer bag(you can stack them once they are completely cool). We had them for breakfast this morning and put them in the microwave on full power for about 1:10-1:15 and they were like I'd just cooked them!! I will NEVER buy a box mix again! I often like to make my own breakfast stuff and freeze it for ease because our mornings are hectic. This fits the bill. Also DO NOT STIR AGAIN after the five minute wait or they won't be as fluffy. Thanks again!

French Macaroons
I never had macarons before, and since there is such a craze for them I gave this recipe a try. Had absolutely no problems and they came out so pretty! I will definitely make this again, and do even more colors next time. Grind the almonds enough and sift, sift, sift to get all the almond pieces that are too big, out. No shortcuts! Trust me, it will be worth it. I will post pics later

Strawberry Cake Filling
A truly magnificent cake-filling! I made this for a client and they just called to tell me how absolutely delicious the cake filling is. I was a bit nervous when they asked for this type of filling, since I had never made it before, but it came out perfect and it was super easy to make. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thanks!
