I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast in the mornings because I am sleepy and lazy at seven o’clock in the morning. It’s easier to dump a packet of oats in a bowl, add water and microwave it than to prepare an omelet or scrambled eggs. However, the protein in eggs is good for me and keeps me fuller longer, so I sometimes make peanut butter crepes on the weekends. They’re pretty quick too, though I have to clean more bowls, beaters and skillets later.
I grabbed this recipe from Erin Shea’s site, Lose the Buddha over a year ago, though she calls them peanut butter pancakes. I prefer to call them crepes since it sounds more egg-like. I’m sure someone will tell me why it’s absolutely erroneous for me to be calling them crepes, but I don’t care, they’ll always be crepes to me. I also doubled the recipe because I am tall and hungry.
Peanut Butter Crepes

2 Tablespoons peanut butter
Combine ingredients in a blender [...]

This is my recipe binder.
See its plastic, mayonnaise-proof covering? See its overly designed pages? See how I’ve collected all my favorite recipes into one binder?
Recently I’ve received several requests for recipes I’ve given a thumbs-up to which presumably won’t make the scale numbers go up too. I also talked to a food blogger a couple months ago who said the weekends are her highest traffic days because people search for recipes on the weekends. I put one and one together, and I didn’t get three, so I’m going to start posting my favorite recipes on the weekend for those of you who want to try new dishes.
We’ll start out with Catfish Tuscany (made with orange roughy in Indiana).
I was strolling through the fish section of the grocery store when I saw the big yellow “Manager’s special” sticker slapped on a package of catfish. I’d never eaten catfish, but I love cats and I love deals, so I bought it. Then I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. So I got on the [...]

There’s a lot going on in the blogosphere, so let’s take a day off from talking about me and mention what other people are up to.
