She cooks, she tells some more

Over at Saucy, the third installment of “Cook and Tell” awaits. This month is the breakfast edition, titled “The Early Bird Catches the Woo.” Yes, yes, I know: this pun is even worse than the last. It will only hurt for a minute, I promise.

*Special thanks to L. for his sweet tooth; to Keaton for enthusiasm and prompt e-mail responses; to Nina Simone for “Sinnerman”; and to Brandon for Nina Simone, expert visual consultation, and much inspiration, gastronomic and otherwise.

Ahhh, a very nice syrupy story pooled around your pancake recipe... or maybe not syrupy, but bitter-sweet instead.

I like your colophon- cute idea.

Hi Molly,
I love your writing. You have such a passionate way of incorporating food into every part of your life. It makes for a mouth watering read!

Thank you, McAuliflower, and yes, from an inside perspective, I'd say this story is more on the bittersweet side...although the sweet in "bittersweet" may well be quite syrupy.

And Michele, thanks so much! These Cook and Tell pieces have been such fun for me; while the theme stays the same, every month feels like a very different exercise. I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying it.

Oh, Molly, you really know how to make me wish for a different meal than the one in front of me. The cheerios I'm about to eat wouldn't woo even the most forgiving of early birds.

Those pancakes, however, sound perfect. I'll have to make a detour to my English-Swedish dictionary on my way to the cheerios: "buckwheat" isn't in my Swedish vocab yet.

Hi Molly,
I have not commented much lately as the forces at work have sapped my energy BUT here I am. I loved the piece on 'Saucy' - The buckwheat pancakes sound divine and I have a brand new crepe pan to play with...wonder if pankcakes will be ok to cook on it...Hmmm. Anyway, keep up the great work!

Oh, Amy! I forgot to post the "don't read this if you're eating cereal" warning again! Sorry, m'dear. Arm yourself with an emergency supply of buckwheat flour and blueberries, just in case I forget yet again.

And welcome back, Pusekatt! And congratulations on your marriage! I think your crepe pan (a wedding present, perhaps?) should work perfectly for a morning treat for you and your man...

Hi Molly,
Thanks for the congratulations!
Yes, the crepe pan was a wedding present and my man would be over the moon if I were to surprise him with these pancakes...I know that we are expecting a rainy weekend so these would make for a very special treat...Ok, I'm sold on the idea now!

PS. I now go by a new identity: "Tisane For One"
