Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I interrupt my normal schedule of posting to instead share a recipe with you.  This was on our table this morning. Breakfast for dinner, perhaps?

Buckwheat heart-shaped pancakes

¾ cup buckwheat
¾ cup flour (regular or gluten-free)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 ½ cup milk
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla (I added this in)
¼ cup melted butter
diced strawberries (optional)
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk dry ingredients together.  In a small bowl, whisk wet ingredients together.  Add wet ingredients to dry, mix until well blended.  Add strawberries.  Pour by ¼ cup onto greased, hot griddle or frying pan, in the shape of a heart.  Cook 2-4 minutes, until brown on edges and bubbling, and flip, repeating on other side.
Serve with syrup or powdered sugar, and enjoy!
(Original, non-heart shaped, non-strawberry recipe comes from a great, very family-friendly book, Gluten-Free Made Simple).
