Buying gifts for cooks is always an easy thing to do. You can never have too many kitchen gadgets, or too large a kitchen for that matter. Lately I’ve been incredibly lucky on the kitchen gift front and this morning I put one of those gorgeous gifts to good use. On a recent visit from Canada, Val of the Delectable, Unforgettable Valerie Crunchie Recipe brought me a lovely packet of Williams Sonoma goodies. We don’t have Williams Sonoma here which is a good thing because my kitchen wish list is way too long already.
One of the gifts was a set of pancake rings (in flower form), and as pancakes (or drop scones as I would call them) are a Sunday morning favourite they have been pressed into service more than once. This morning we had buttermilk pancakes, stacked with homemade honey yoghurt and berry compote. Light and filling, decadent and healthy all at once, and easy enough for Dakota to help me make them. The perfect Sunday morning breakfast.
As we ate, we thought of Val and all her family. We miss them but that’s the great thing about a really good gift. You use it often and think of the giver with a smile when you do. Thanks Val! And Kisses to SG!
