Valentine's Day Pancakes


I received an email from a young lady who asked me to put something on my blog that was easy and red and white.  As a result, I will add at least three more recipes in recognition of Valentine’s Day.  I actually went out and purchased some Bisquick.  As some of you know, most of my cooking and all of my baking is from scratch.  I used a large heart shaped cookie cut out to make the pancakes.  I didn’t have any strawberry syrup, so I made a little simple syrup and added some strawberry preserves and allowed it to reduce down.  Finally, I garnished the pancakes with pecans.  Is that easy or not?

Green Sauce


When you visit various restaurants for Mexican cuisine, more than likely, you will be served a green or red salsa with chips.  This is my version of the green sauce.  It yields about 5 cups in the event that you want to cut the recipe in half.
