I woke up early Saturday morning a little earlier than normal and decided to finally read a book I’d bought a couple of months ago “Ricky Lauren, The Hamptons….Food, Family and History”.
I’ve always been a huge Ralph & Ricky Lauren fan and figured her book would be just as great as any fashion or design they’ve ever done. Let me tell you it is! I highly recommend this book not only for just lookin’ good on the coffee table, but for the content as well. I learned interesting history about the Hamptons and it’s loaded with easy, healthy recipes Ricky has cooked for her family. I was so inspired after reading the book, that I immediately had to race to my fridge to see if I had the ingredients for a Ricky Lauren breakfast for my guys. I was in luck! I was set to take on the Blueberry-Banana Pancakes in this picture below.
Let me tell ya…they were SO good! I didn’t have the wheat germ ingredient on hand, but I did have ground flaxseed and that worked just fine. The recipe also calls for 2 cups of buttermilk, but only had one cup…..so I just added one more cup of regular milk. The guys (my husband and son) loved them and Cooper and Dylan (my dogs) woofed the bites I’d sneak to them!
So, I had to add some of this for the guys…(umm, the dog guys too).
And when the bacon started cooking, Cooper reminded me of one of my fave YouTube videos.
