I don't try to make it any secret that everything I do at home is homemade. Before we moved to Oklahoma City when I had an actual kitchen with an actual oven, I even went so far as to make our own hamburger buns and pretzel buns for those times we had Black Dog Brats at home.
I like being in control of the ingredients in the food we eat. I like being in control of the quality of the ingredients of the food we eat! Not to mention everything is so much better when it is homemade. This really didn't take an extraordinary amount of extra time for me. I worked two jobs and still managed to make everything homemade. I guess the issue here is whether or not it is a priority to you and for me, it is a priority.
At any rate, I pretty much despise any form of box mix baked good. It's lazy and often times you can make it for cheaper and better! I'll admit it, my husband and I are complete and total food snobs. We just prefer to think we like and know good food.
Before I get into the pancake recipe, I have to share a good food find here in OKC, The Wedge Pizzeria. We had the pleasure of eating dinner there last night and it was pretty amazing! Of course I think any pizza that has truffle oil sprinkled over the top has got to be pretty amazing! When we pulled up they had a garden of their own, which automatically made them awesome in my book! Then I ate their food and they are completely awesome! We had a pizza called Truffle Shuffle;
