Fresh Apple Pancake

Nothing much better to wake up to than the smell of apples cooking quickly topped with a good shake of ground cinnamon, especially when there’s color in the trees – or snow on the ground.

Stage 10 win & cherry pancakeAnother gutsy come-from-behind win by Team Astana’s Vincenzo Nibali on stage 10 from Mulhouse to the top of La Planche des Belles Filles in the Vosges mountains.
