Cooking with My Mother-in-law, and Her Mother-in-law

This was fun. Mrs. Finney and I bonded over the dreaded potato slicer. It was a torture device. We prevailed!

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

I was making pancakes the other morning for breakfast and decided to add a small twist. Caramelize some apple in a pan and pour the mix on top of them. So here’s the pancake mix recipe and instructions as follows:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 7 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 egg
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 sliced red apple
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (for apple’s in pan)

This makes a lot of batter! Use a large bowl. If needed ingredients can be halved.

In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. Make a well and mix the butter and milk together until batter is smooth. Slice apples into slivers. In a pan, melt some butter and 3 pinches brown sugar. Over Medium heat cook apples until brown on one side. Designs are fun here. Flip and then pour pancake mix over them. Cook until air bubbles pop in the surface of the pancakes. These can be damn hard to flip, so The longer the spatula the better. Flip and let cook about another 2 mins. Serve hot!

You wont use the entire apple, so the extra can be diced and placed in the pan with the rest of the brown sugar and some maple syrup. This makes a nice glaze.

My Meat Shirt

Since my family is primarily pesco-vegitarian, I decided to have a little fun. I bought this shirt as a joke to my dad. I sent him this on Thanksgiving day.

No-Bake Cookies with Peanut Butter

1 stick butter (unsalted)
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup milk 

3 cups Oatmeal
6 Tbs of cocoa powder (either dark or milk work just fine. Hersey’s is the best though)
1 tsp of vanilla

(These next three are more too taste. These are rough estimates)
1 Tbs of Cinnamon
1/2 Tbs of ground cloves
1/2 Tbs of ground nutmeg

1 Tbs Chili Powder 

1 Jar Peanut butter
Melt the butter in a sauce pan on Med/High heat. Add the milk next and then the sugar. Let boil for 2 mins while stirring regularly.
Remove from heat. Add the vanilla, and spices. Stir. Add the coco powder and the oatmeal. It’s easier to add 2 Tbs of cocoa then 1 cup of oatmeal, stir, and then 2 Tbs cocoa and 1 cup oatmeal. Once everything is mixed up. pull out a cookie sheet. Non-stick is preferred. If you don’t have NS, just throw some cooking spray down. Spoon out cookies on the cookie sheet. Space about 1/2 in apart. It’s okay if they touch, they’re easy to pull apart. Once they’re down, make a spoon indentation in each. Let sit in freezer for about an hour. Then spoon peanut butter in the indentations.
