Buttermilk Pancakes.

The weekends are great for many things, but I must say one of my favorite parts is waking up on a Saturday morning to make breakfast with my family. It’s so nice not being rushed and teaching my kids how to make some of my favorite recipes. One of our family favorites is Pancakes - if they want something sweet, it’s ALWAYS what they choose.

Pancakes is one of the easiest things to make from scratch, and you can add toppings so easily, making it a meal that easy for everyone to enjoy. My Mom always makes fun letters and shapes for the kids, I’m not quite as talented so I keep that classic circle shape, much to their dismay.

These delicious, fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes are the perfect breakfast recipe for a Saturday morning.

ingredients:

  • 1 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt
  • 1⁄4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄4 cup oil
  • Topping of your choice : blueberries, butter, whip cream, syrup, etc

instructions:

How to cook Buttermilk Pancakes

  1. Start by preheating your skillet or griddle, on about medium heat to get it warmed up. 
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, egg, and oil until combined, in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Grease your skillet or griddle with a few pats of butter to avoid sticking. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the surface for each pancake. Cook each pancake for about 1 minute or until the batter starts to set around edges and little bubbles or pockets begin to appear on the “raw” side of the pancake. 
  4. Flip and cook for about 1 minute or until you see the pancakes are browned on the other side and cooked through. 
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Fresh Syrup over Pancakes by heirloomed

This recipe gives you such nice and fluffy pancakes. We like to add different topping like blueberries or strawberries, but you can really add anything - chocolate chips, nuts, Nutella, you name it. Also, if you need a little help getting started in the morning check out our recipe for Cold Brew Coffee here.

While pancakes definitely top the list in our house, we also love oatmeal, French Toast, or a yummy casserole. I’d love to know your favorite breakfast to make on the weekends. Let me know in the comments below.

White Cheddar Pimento Cheese with Herbs.

I love the classics, but I also love a clever take or spin on some of the best recipes of all time. For me, Pimento Cheese is one of those go-to staples that we always have on hand. This Masters Week classic cheese spread is one of those holy kind of recipes that often you just don’t mess with, or mess up.

Over the years as Southern fare has gone from casual to upscale and back again, I’ve seen pimento cheese in just about every single application you could imagine. Each one equally as delicious in its own regard. Pimento cheese grits, pimento cheese deviled eggs, pimento cheese grilled cheese. The list goes on.

I perused Pinterest prior to shooting this recipe, only to find a huge number of not-so-delicious looking bright orange + red images that were far from appetizing. Being a neutral lover and wanting to include a fresh spin on this classic recipe here on our site, I decided to change it up and created and yummy little variation for you to try. White Cheddar Pimento Cheese with Herbs.

Well, if I’m being entirely honest the red of the pimentos didn’t quite suit my fancy. So, this is more of a cheese spread as no actual pimentos were used in the making of this dish. I know, but stay with me here because I promise you it’s both delicious and a gorgeous presentation for your guests, jam packed with flavor from all the fresh, seasonal herbs this time of year.

I believe there are several things that make a good, classic pimento cheese recipe better than the rest right out of the gate. First, grate your own cheese from the block. I repeat, do not start with a bag of pre-shredded cheese it will just never be as good or as fresh tasting. Second, use a combination of sour cream and cream cheese for the perfect creamy texture with just enough tang. If you have a go-to recipe you’re used to making, give it a try next time by going half and half and trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

I love serving my pimento cheese as an appetizer when we entertain, but it also makes a wonderful food gift when packed in a cute little jar with crackers, a vintage knife and a tea towel. Great for a housewarming or for bringing over to a friend’s house for dinner, or even a new baby meal.

Other classic things pimento cheese is perfect for … packing into your picnic basket or (of course) Masters Sunday viewing. Having grown up on the golf course my whole life with my Dad, I have such a fondness and affinity for the sport so this dish is sort of a homage to the great game.

I was even lucky enough to have attended the Masters with Shane the weekend we got engaged. Even more than I imagined it was so perfect + pristine. The epitome of a golfers dream.
