The Easter long weekend starts today, and while this post is going out we will be eating pancakes for breakfast (actually I hope we get to sleep in a bit longer!). Pancakes are our favourite holiday/weekend breakfast. They are easy and can be adapted to almost any dietary restrictions. This recipe comes from the Martha Stewart website, and I just made my own tweaks with the flour and method. The same goes for hamburgers, my second recipe. These hamburgers are really yummy and easy to make; perfect for casual BBQs this weekend (weather permitting). And when you make them up you can add whatever you can have.
I hope you enjoy your long weekend, however you choose to spend it.
