Featured Recipe: Banana-Pecan Upside-Down Pancake
When your business is breakfast, you’re bound to have some pretty amazing ideas. So when I needed a fantastic Christmas breakfast dish, I asked my new friends, Doug and Margi Erikson, owners of The CW Worth House Bed and Breakfast in Historic Downtown Wilmington, N.C. if they had one they’d be willing to share.
I tend to be drawn to savory breakfast dishes, and Margi and Doug have plenty of those, too, but what I really wanted was a sweet breakfast treat to feed the whole family. Doug says, “This is ‘hands down’ our guests’ favorite dish in the morning. [All you need is] a large old fashioned cast iron skillet to make it.”
Cast iron skillet in hand, I got to work to see if this was as easy as Doug promised. The result was beautiful, flavorful and ultimately very easy. I hope you’ll try this taste treat for your special holiday breakfast or when you need an impressive but easy breakfast dish. In the meantime if you’d like to visit the C.W. Worth House in person or virtually, check out their website a www.worthhouse.com or call for reservations 800-340-8559.
Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
