I feel as though I am going to eat my way through the next two weeks. YAP! two more weeks and I am done done done! However, in the mean time there is some serious work to be done…mainly 4 long papers to write…

So I am going to do what I do best, cook and eat! J and I have been trying to stay off of carbs but truth be told I am having a hard time staying away when I feel the need to snack on something while studying.

In the past week two mornings I treated myself to pancakes. I wished I could tell you that I made them from scratch, but no, I used the store box mix which is pretty decent. I decided to add some fruit to the batter as it is always good. The first time I had some mangoes (as seen in the picture above) and yesterday I actually used some loquats from our tree (picture below). I must admit, the second experiment was not that great, you could not really taste the loquats. But the mango one was FANTASTIC!

In case anyone knows any loquats recipes please send them my way…we have a tree and Indi and I have been snacking on the fruit here and there.

I know this sounds crazy, that’s what I thought as well when I first saw the picture of a bacon pancake in one of Martha Stewart’s magazines. A whole year later, I still could not get the curiosity out of my head so I decided that I was going to give it a try. I liked the results, but J wasn’t too into it. I think it was because of the batter which was a little too dense. So anyway, we had a fabulous breakfast as I also made banana pancakes! Ever since we have been going to Nosh Cafe I am all about brown sugar bacon, so I added my own twist this these yummy pancakes.

Pancake batter (homemade or from store bought mix)

Bacon (as much or as little as you want…I went a little crazy)

Brown sugar

Maple syrup

I would highly recommend making the bacon in the oven. I didn’t because I was being lazy. I usually make my bacon on Georgie (George Foreman Grill), but I didn’t feel like taking it out. I made it in a pan and I ended up messing up the Teflon because of the sugar. In retrospect, I am so glad that I did not use my Georgie! So the oven option is the best, especially, if you have a wire rack, in case you prefer that your bacon does not cook in its own fat!

Cover a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. Set a wire rack on the cookie sheet and line bacon on the wire rack in a single layer. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar and bake until crisp. Take out of the oven and place on paper towel. Crumble bacon once it has cooled down enough to handle.

Make pancake batter and add bacon. Cook pancake and serve with maple syrup! YUM!!!!
