Microwave Bowl Pancake

Gorgeous weather here in the Northeast! Legs are screamin’ at me to get out on the bike – I’ll obey ‘soon as I fire this off!

Here’s what I had yesterday morning to power me through putting together the step-by-step picture book recipe you can get here and a 35+ mile bike ride later in the afternoon (admittedly, after a nut butter and toast snack shortly before hitting the road).

Microwave Cooked Bowl PancakeThe great things about a bowl pancake:

  1. Fantastic flavor that can be altered easily to suit your individual taste.
  2. Speed.
  3. Ease – you use the same bowl to mix, cook and eat the pancake, which makes both prep and cleanup as fast and easy as possible.

Left-Handed (Fully Flavorful) Fried Eggs – All in Pictures

Left-Handed EggsI’ve posted a few microwave cooked pasta one-bowl meals here recently, and though I do have one more all set to go, I thought I’d change it up a bit with a fully flavorful fried egg recipe my son introduced me to last year he calls “Left-Handed Eggs”.

I asked my son, why the name, “left-handed”? “Just because.” Quite right! Absolutely! Right on!

The great things about these “left-handed eggs” is that, first, they taste great, and second, they take no longer to make than straight up fried eggs because the flavor-enhancing ingredients are added as the eggs cook in the pan.

Here’s what it takes to make left-handed (fully flavorful) fried eggs.

Nut Butter, Yogurt, Fresh Fruit and Dried Fruit Topping – All in Pictures

Last time, I showed how to make almond, quinoa and flaxseed pancakes, shown below, that are a great energy-sustaining alternative to sugar “spike and crash” traditional flapjack pancakes.


Here are the ingredients to make a 
nut butter, yogurt, fresh fruit and dried fruit topping that goes great on those pancakes – or any pancakes, French toast, or waffles – that’s both terrifically flavorful and provides sustained energy. As mentioned in the recipe, though I’m using almond butter (which I’ll show how to make fresh next), any nut butter will work. The same goes for the fresh fruit, dried fruit, and yogurt. It’s all about taste and imagination – and imagining that what you’re going to make is gonna’ taste great!
