There is a British Study that says that people tend to choose dog that have similar personalities to themselves. I don’t know about that, but I DO know that since Lemon and I moved out on our own… he’s gotten quirkier. So, yeah. I guess that study is pretty bang on.

Lemon and I

Let us look at the ways that Lemon and I are the same:

1. We both dislike early mornings and love naps.

2. We are both somewhat paranoid and twitchy.

3. Neither of us have much fashion sense.

You can’t see it in this photo but his purse totally clashes with that hat.

4. We love a good cookie.

5. We are easily startled.

6. We hate cleaning up after ourselves. *The only difference is that one of us will eventually do it anyway… thanks Lem.*

7. We are somewhat awkward and a whole lot weird.

8. Once you get to know us those things become adorable.

Here is another thing we have in common… we love this recipe. Me, because it is basically dessert dressed up like a meal and Lemon, because he gets the fruit that I drop on the ground. Both the accidental and deliberate kind.

Also, because it is just the two of us (though TV assures me that cute single girls in the city have many opportunities for “unexpected, but completely welcome morning visitors”… please don’t let this be more of your ‘false advertising’ television) this recipe is in singles friendly portion. One recipe makes 2 decent sized pancakes.

Best Pancakes In The World

Ingredients
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup liquid (milk or water – up to you)
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp white vinegar
1/2 TBSP sugar
1 medium sized fruit or 1/2 cup
A little sugar and spices to taste

Depending on the fruit you use, you may need to cut it up and saute it with a little butter and sugar. Use the sugar to taste, it will depend on if you are using a seriously sweet banana or if you have a bitter apple. Berries and such don’t need to be cooked first, but you can if you like.

This is also a good time to add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg if you so choose. Usually 1/2 tsp is more than enough.

Mix all other ingredients in a bowl, add your fruit – cooked or not. Mix well.

Cook pancakes in a fry pan over medium heat until golden brown and cooked through.

Enjoy with an abundance of maple syrup. Seriously… go nuts. It’s awesome.
