“Nothing says ‘weekend’ like a stack of hot pancakes…”
How true—and, considering that, how appropriate that this photo (and quote) are from USA Weekend Magazine. For many months, I have been shooting, with food styling by Lisa Cherkasky, recipes for this weekly national publication and website. This is one of my favorites. How can you resist these buckwheats, literally dripping and glistening with real maple syrup, and bejeweled with plump fresh blueberries. Where’s my coffee?!
Yeah, yeah—this recipe is actually healthier than most other pancake recipes, too…That’s because nutritionist/author/TV host Ellie Krieger made sure of it. As she says, they’re made “without the unhealthy downsides of most recipes, which are typically loaded with sugar, white flour and butter.” Plus, buckwheat gives them more fiber, blueberries are high in antioxidants. Eating healthy food is important to me—and I am always delighted when it can also be tempting, rich-tasting and delicious!
Dov and Mara are home on Spring break, and we’re all very lucky—Marty will be making these for us!
