i love m'le

I love Madeleine L'Engle.

In my mind she is like an eccentric old aunt who passed her wisdom onto me.

I carry it always.

And then it delights and surprises me to find that...others might be proprietary about her too!  and she is maybe making a comeback!  The small local bookstore certainly has a wider selection than many!  (OR MAYBE THAT IS CHANGING)

lucky for me, the public library where i grew up stocked even her super out of print first work, Ilsa, and I got to read a musty old copy twice.

blueberry pancakes

best recipe, easy recipe

great off the griddle, great made and saved in the fridge and toasted 3 days later

just. great.

cups Original Bisquick® mix
cup milk
tablespoon sugar
tablespoons lemon juice
teaspoons baking powder
  1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with butter. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  2. Stir all ingredients until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle.
  3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden. 

 Go to the farmers market.
