Ah pancakes. The ultimate bane of my culinary existence. I mean, it just a pancake. Nothing that special, right? Well, I never thought out them too much expect for an especially hungry Saturday morning. But this is where the bane part comes in, I have been trying to make pancakes at home for a few years now off and on and have failed miserably each time. I don’t know if it’s the batter or my technique or my general black thumb when it comes to try to bake. But finally, FINALLY, this recipe is a winner. Plus, the cottage cheese adds an extra punch of protein and depth to the pancake which I enjoy.

Keeping with my breakfast kick… Here is my new favorite! Scrambled egg, smooshed avocado on multi-grain toast with havarti and Valentina sauce. Super simple and protein packed.

Toast the bread with the havarti. I used my toaster oven for this, a regular oven would work too.

Oops. I cheated on Sriracha. The Valentina really does work better on this one though.
