This is not so much of a recipe as an idea. We recently instituted a new tradition in the Burnaska Household, I think we are on week three of pancake Friday. Today was Peaches and Cream. I had a can of organic peaches preserved in peach juice open in the fridge. I took the juice of the peaches and added it to my Aunt Jemimah Pancake mix that only requires water. I cooked the pancakes and put small pieces of peaches in the batter. I served them with the peach juice instead of syrup and light whipped cream (from a can). It is a work morning after all, but feel free to whip your own cream if you would like to make this special.
What you need:
1/2 cup of pancake mix that only requires water
1/4 cup of peach juice
cut up peach
reserved juice to be used as syrup
What you do:
1. heat up a skillet with butter
2. mix the pancake mix and the juice, add some of the cut up peaches
3. cook the pancakes until the edges are bubbly, and flip
4. cook for another minute until complete
5. serve with whip cream and peaches
As always, much love, many blessings, and happy Friday!
It an arabic word for "Welcome, please sit down, dinner is served."
But it is more of a term of endearment for your guests. I am sure I am butchering phonetically.
I baked my first cake when I was two. Growing up in my house with an Egyptian Father and a Cuban Mother, you learn very quickly that food is the ubiquitous language of love. We would have arroz con frijoles negros one night, and macrona bel crema the next. The beauty of food is that there are no geographical boundaries, it's art, it's emotion, it's healing, and all food is manna from above.
I'm sure my dad is up in heaven welcoming people to his table all the time with this warm word. My mom is still down here cooking up a storm, and I will be sure to share both families recipes with you.
