I have been sick for days.
And not a big sick, just a cold. Which doesn’t sound like much except for the fact that I haven’t been able to BREATHE for the last four days and my eyes water so it looks like I’m crying all.the.time (which might have been a true statement during Grey’s Anatomy… anyone?? Uh, what?!).
But you know what helps when you’re sick? Pancakes. Well, comfort food in general. Insert: mac & cheese, hot tea, and… pancakes. Duh.
And, in trying to make my own recipe book, I created this recipe myself, thankyouverymuch. It was hearty and dense and completely rewarding. Maybe buttermilk has magical healing powers, too?
