High rise pancake

I live in an apartment with two girls and a fat lady-cat. We have a subscription to GQ here, which ends up on our coffee table. The magazines always seem to shock people. “You get GQ?!” they (usually a guy) will ask. Yes, yes we do. And here’s why: 1. the reporting is a lot stronger than a lot of ladymags, 2. better cultural pieces, 3. it’s funny, 4. there are are always pictures of good looking men jumping in suits.

They also have a pretty darn good food and drink section. Their recipes tend to reinforce the readers’ masculinity (the most intense mac and cheese! master your barbeque! eat more steak!) but there are deviations. To wit: this lovely egg pancake recipe.

I have a theory that GQ hoped their reader would serve this to a really hot yoga teacher as a late-night, post-coital snack in their futuristic-yet-inviting apartment. INSTEAD I served it for brunch on a sunny day to my roommates. And we dug it hardcore.

(It’s also a great excuse to use your cast-iron skillet if you, like me, tend to ignore that versatile little pan).

Basic crepe

Basic crepeThis crepe recipe is a time machine. It was one of the first recipes I ever found on the internet. It was definitely one of the first time I cooked something that I had never seen my mom make. Most importantly, it was for a school project for French class in high school.

Slightly related side-note: how did making crepes help me learn French? Does making a volcano or a pyramid teach you history? I think actual cooking lessons might be helpful, but these potlucks and crafts we had were sheer bribery.

Although. It’s such a simple recipe, and I’ve used it dozens of times since then, so I guess I can’t complain too much.
