Happy Birthday to Alicia!
Alicia, you are a friend, a fellow baker, a food connoiseur, a gourmet cook, a scientist, a spice magician, and my foodie mentor! Since we met, you have encouraged me to experiment with different foods and try tons of recipes! I have expanded my food palette and made my grocery store runs and visits to farmer’s markets much more frequent!
For Alicia’s birthday, I decided to make the most delicious birthday meal! Well…kind of. How about a virtual meal? I have to admit, I haven’t made these recipes, but they sure do look tasty! Since Alicia and I are meeting for dinner, I decided she needed a little spice to get her through the day.
Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream
Why? Because Alicia loves breakfast, especially pancakes with a little something extra! Maybe you can top it with bacon? 🙂
