Tiramisu Pancakes

Katie gets either the credit or the blame. 🙂

I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me that pancakes can be like oatmeal. I know quite well how to top a bowl of oats and create a huge variety of concoctions, from pumpkin pie to peanut butter and jelly. But pancakes (ooh, and probably waffles, too!) can be just as versatile, in much the same way! The only crucial key is making sure you keep the right balance between wet and dry ingredients, and the sky’s the limit!

Chilaquiles

Eric ends up eating in the cafeteria at work a lot, and it’s not the most healthful of cuisine. (Understatement.)

But prepping complicated lunches often requires more time and energy than I have in a typical morning, so there’s been a struggle. I decided to look for strong casseroles and stew dishes that would provide tons of leftovers and that would stand up well to fridging or freezing; then I could store them in serving-sized quantities, ready for handing off to him in the mornings.

Enter…chilaquiles.
