I was in a super-charge mood from my morning’s workout. The endorphins gained kept me in an upbeat mood for sometime. Thus, I went with the flow and hopped in my kitchen to make yours truly a powerhouse breakfast. I knew beforehand that the apple on my counter was heading somewhat ‘south’. I hate when that happens.

So, like the thrifty gal that I am; or perhaps I should state a restorer that I am, I decided to breathe back life. I did that by grabbing my box grater and shredded the fiber wonder. I added this to a batter made up of whole wheat and all-purpose flour and other ingredients. My mission was to make apple and flax-seed pancakes.


  • whole-wheat flour (1/2 cup)
  • All purpose flour (1/2 cup)
  • Baking powder (1 tsp)
  • Flax seeds (1 tbsp)
  • Salt(pinch)
  • Cinnamon (1 tsp)
  • Milk (3/4 cup)
  • Egg (1 egg)
  • Shredded apple (1 apple)
  • Melted butter (1 tbsp)
  • Sour cream (1 tsp)
  • Vanilla (splash)
  • Pam spray
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Orange slices


  1. In a bowl, dried ingredients were added to wet. These were folded together without overworking batter.
  2. In a hot skillet under low to medium heat, Pam spray was added.
  3. Each pancake was dispensed using a 1/3 measuring cup and cooked on both sides until finished.
  4. In sauce pan, chopped strawberries were added with a teaspoon of honey and squeeze of lemon.
  5. Under low heat, strawberries were reduced to a semi sauce-like consistency with chunks.
  6. Pancakes were topped with strawberry sauce.

On the side, I served fresh straw and blueberries along with orange slices.

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
