“Dining with one’s friends and beloved family is certainly one of life’s primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal.” – Julia Child


Dutch Baby Pancakes

Yesterday morning we got up early for a send-off breakfast and to hit the road for our 12-hour drive home. My dad made us his signature weekend morning breakfast, the recipe to which I had forgotten I have. He made us a batch of Dutch Baby Pancakes. These doughy pancakes are light and fluffy, and are especially good with lemon juice and powdered sugar sifted on top. (I have heard of other toppings being used instead, like apples with cinnamon. I’m sure the possibilities are endless!) With a side dish of turkey bacon, they were the perfect meal to get us revved up for our big drive.

Our ride home was uneventful – we drove through a couple of heavy rainstorms, but nothing major. It felt good to finally roll into our drive way around 11:00 last night and be greeted by our favorite cat. It’s always hard to return to reality after a fun weekend away, but it’s also good to come home and sleep in one’s own bed.

Good news for you, dear reader! Tonight I’ll resume our Julia recipes, kicking us off with some ingredients I already have in my fridge – get ready for some poached eggs served on canapes! Seems easy and is reportedly delicious, which sounds like the perfect meal to ease our way back into cooking. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a full review of our dinner menu – until then, consider the Dutch Baby Pancakes. Simple yet delicious, they’re a great answer to a hungry family in the mornings.

More tomorrow!

Your favorite road warrior,
