a big pancake breakfast.

I'm the kind of girl who follows every step of the recipe and ends up with flat cookies. 
I google "basic" when I search for something to cook because otherwise, well, it's just too complicated.

This morning, however, was different. 
Stephanie Morrill's pancake recipe is absolutely wonderful. 
Enough said.
[But I'll say more anyway.]
        these pancakes flipped like they flip in the movies. 
          the mixing bowl. interesting and intriguing as, i know. 


          there's really not much to say. this is a pancake.

              melted ice-cream. for breakfast. i mean, what more could you ask for, really?

oh, even better. un-melted ice-cream. yes, the edges are a tad burnt. but hey, they cook faster. ;)

oh wow this is so cool. i just figured out you could click "add caption".
*changing all the other captions to official captions*.
So anyway, that's my day.
Reading: On a Whim -- Kate Welden Series #2, by Robin Jones Gunn. Lovin' this book. Of course.
Listening to: I'm really not sure. The radio reception is terrible.

Oh, and a verse I found this morning that sunk into me like I'd just discovered some piece of ancient treasure that had been buried for years?

"Don't let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good." -- Romans 12:21, The Message

That's how we overcome evil. With God -- God is good. God is love. God is bigger than anything and everything.  Strive to do good. Desire to good. I'm reading Just like Jesus by Max Lucado again. I want a heart likes Jesus'. It seems impossible, doesn't it?

"I can do anything through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

PS Yes, I did get the title from that movie.

    Christy and Todd...


    My heart is just fluttering thinking about it...

    Katie is great too though... Christy is just sort of unbeatable. Love it. I hope Robin writes a continuation of Christy and Todd- while they are married...




  2. I'm the exact same way with cookies! I follow the recipe to a t and......they still end flat and crispy :P I LOVE the Katie books and ice creeam on pancakes is the best! {though it's really good with waffles too :)

  3. Well it happens to everyone (mine one time overflowed the pan a bit,my cookies). Yummy! Ice cream and pancakes...I want to try that the next time I have pancakes :) Add captions is great!!!!! Love those two verses...so encouraging :) Sierra
    Keep Growing Beautiful♥ (Cause You Are!)

  4. cool! how do you do the caption thing? :)

    abbie - xoxo

  5. Haha, I'm like that with cooking too. Glad to here that your pancakes turned out good! They look real yummy! And ice cream on top? Even yummier! I'll have to try that sometime! :)

  6. Oh? Well, that's just plain old awesome. I'm not the only Cookie Fail!:P

    Makay -- ME3!!! And that would be so so so cool if she wrote about Todd and Christy, married!!!Woo, I'd love that.

    Lolz, for the caption? Just click the picture where it says "enlarge" and stuff and there it is, caption. :)

    Oh yes, definitely ice-cream.

    Waffles? Weird as it may sound... I've never, ever had them. I know Christy had them, though -- Uncle Bob made them for her in Summer Promise. ;)

    LOVE the Katie books. About to review number three, woot!:D

  7. Oh, my pancakes always end up so strange--those look delicious!

    Love that verse. Well, I love Romans in general actually. So much truth. (:
