Everyone says breakfast is the most important meal of the day but no one tells me how to incorporate breakfast into an already packed morning especially since I don’t do processed food. Often I make a small batch of pancakes or waffles and have one serving in the morning and the second serving the next morning.

For my sixth  10 Recipes Every Beginning Cook Should Know I choose pancakes and waffles.

The following recipes are basic recipes, feel free to experiment with add ins like chocolate chips, pumpkin, fruit, spices or all of the above.  You never have to make them the same way twice.

Basic Pancakes
