Pete's House of Pancakes

I love cooking. I love trying new recipes and feeding people. But sometimes I just don’t want to. Usually those times occur on weekend mornings, when all I really want to do is sleep a little longer. Sunday was one of those days, which great because that was also the day Pete surprised me with tasty apple pancake goodness.

Studded with chunks of apple, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and drizzled with maple syrup, served alongside a mug of freshly brewed coffee, could there be a more perfect Sunday morning breakfast?

While we are on the topic of maple syrup, I need to speak for a moment of my sweet sweet love for the pure maple syrup. Maple syrup and I, we are besties, he is my secret pretend boyfriend and I just need to say that if you are still swilling that fake maple flavored crud and haven’t made the change to the amazingness that is pure maple syrup (preferably from Vermont, this place is my all time fave) then I may need to reevaluate our friendship.

This weekend was actually a Pete Cooking Extravaganza, I guess someone had to pick up the slack after Budino Bummer '08. Stay tuned for more tales of Pete channeling The Barefoot Contessa.

oh, by the way, did I tell you about how I went to pick up my camera, and it was still broken? yup, still rocking the old camera, and not liking it one bit.

I can't believe Pete cooked a meal that doesn't involve frozen pizza.

yeah, with ole Pburt its either frozen french bread za or some sort of pasta. Unless of course he is making one of his gourmet tuna out of a bag meals - I can still smell those...mmm mmm good

Great blog, Jess! I especially like the attention to cullinary detail you pay the foodie goodnesses that surround us. I'll be tuning in for recipes and pictures.

Oh, and did Pete Cakes really make those pancakes? Really, he did? Jeez, when did he become Bobby Flay?

Good luck with everything!
