Directions

  1. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk. Stir milk and egg into flour mixture. Mix in the butter and fold in the blueberries. Set aside for 1 hour.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Flexible Skewers, a BBQ Must-Have

Ok, why didn’t I know about these sooner? Flexible Skewers, I haven’t seen you until now, but I already love you.

Can you imagine how much easier cooking and presenting food on flexible skewers would be? Heat can distribute at different angles on the grill and making fruit kabobs could be more adventurous since the flexibility allows for different shapes of fruit. I did a google search and found flexible skewers available on Amazon, Sur la Table, Willams-Sanoma, and many other retailers. I’ll have to tell Pam (owner of David’s) about this amazing BBQ must-have later today. David’s needs this product!
