A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a vietnamese sub from a small place close to my boyfriend’s work. In all honesty, my hopes are never very high with regards to restaurants here in Calgary. I know that there are a lot of more expensive places that are supposed to be great, but we won’t spend the money. Usually when we go out, it’s ok, but nothing fantastic. I don’t know if it was the mood I was in but that sub was absolutely phenomenal. I haven’t eaten something, outside of our own kitchen, that I have so thoroughly enjoyed for such a long time. Although I have not tried to replicate it exactly, it made me think that it would be a great dish to make at home. Here it is.
I was on a pancake hiatus for a very long time. Whether it was the recipes I was using or my own skill in the kitchen (I suspect it was the latter), every time I would try to make pancakes, they turned out to be a disaster. The same thing would always happen: I would cook them for what felt like an eternity and they would still taste gummy and undercooked on the inside. It usually ended up with me throwing a pancake-fit and us having to eat some sub-par food.
