This shot is brought to you by our favorite hole in the wall bar called The Anchor. You may have even heard of this fine establishment from the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. In any event, aside from the greatest burgers and fresh cut fries I've ever had at amazingly low prices, they also have this rather unusual shot called the Pancake Breakfast shot.
You may have noticed based on many of our blog posts that we love meats and gravy around here. Maybe it's a midwest thing, maybe it's a comfort food during the dead of winter thing, or maybe mom just didn't feed me enough of it growing up. Who knows? One thing is for sure, we are always looking for recipes in which we have an excuse to make gravy.
Growing up, mom used to grow her own zucchini in the garden and make this amazing zucchini bread with it. The bread could be smelled throughout the house and brought everyone to the kitchen for mom's latest creation.
School was called off on account of an impending snowstorm and I began to crave pancakes with homemade blueberry sauce. It had been a while since last I made blueberry sauce from scratch, so I started digging for my recipe. After some frantic searching, I was ecstatic to locate the recipe! Now it's time to share it with you, my adoring fans. ;)
We love banana bread around here! We just can't get enough of it. In fact, whenever I make it, I end up eating entirely too much of it! That's ok, though. It has bananas in it, so it's healthy, right? ;)
One of the hands-down best appetizers to order at Grandma's Restaurant is their Stuffed Wild Rice Mushrooms. When our 2013 Appetizer Contest winner Alejandra A. suggested Bacon and Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, I knew we had an amazing opportunity at hand. Combine her recipe for stuffed mushrooms with Grandma's Restaurant's idea for a cheesy Mornay sauce over the top.
I'm going to preface this by saying this is NOT a recipe for homemade crepes. We bought ours from the grocery store because I was curious how store-bought crepes would taste. However, this recipe does include ways to use crepes and you're welcome to make them from scratch!
